Hi Family. Leslie and I are on our way home from Missouri. This past several days we have had a continual series of opportunities to meet with the men and wives of the PBR and encourage them in their marriages. It is such a rare opportunity and it is so necessary. I am not sure if I can do any more in this area but I will invite each of you to purposely intercede for these men and their marriages. Many months ago I asked you all to pray for one of our young couples who was walking through some enormous hurdles. I am pleased to report that they have received the healing and they have become another testimony of what our Father can do when two people are willing to surrender to him. The parents of this same couple were having massive troubles during this same time and they also came to me this weekend and through tears and embrace told me of the miracle our Father did in them. Months ago, I had encouraged the husband to write his wife a letter and send her a flower. That letter and the Spirit behind it saved their marriage. Hebrews 11 records the amazing things that normal men and woman did by faith. Verse 33: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, ?x?stopped the mouths of lions, ?34? ?y?quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. ?35? ?z?Women received their dead raised to life again. And in this case, we can say by faith, a family was rescued. It wasn't just a a hoping and praying God would do something but people listened to Gods instructions and did them. They had faith that their obedience to God was the most important thing and left the outcome to him. In this case, two marriages were saved and a family was not sacrificed.
I tell you these stories to remind you of the power of God is currently at work in the lives of people and that the time we invest in others is still a safe and wise investment. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, we have all been called to the same thing. Acts 22 Then he said, '?The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will, to see the Righteous One, and to hear his own voice,??c?, ?8? ?15??because you will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard. The God of all creation. The God of Israel. the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of Todd and Leslie and the Lord Jesus Christ is still the same God and his heart for people has never changed. He is still active and moving and looking for those who will say, "here I am Lord. Send me." Anybody out there?

In service of the Lord our God, Todd and Leslie
