March has been a month of surprises - I began the month in the middle of a twenty day trip through four states visiting seven churches. During this trip, I had the wonderful blessing of being a part of several missions conferences and meeting many wonderful friends along the way!! At one of these meetings, the pastor told me after the service that his church plans to partner in support. I also received word from a church I visited with a few months ago that they will be starting support as well! God's provision is always perfect and right on time!!
Another conference saw 40 souls come to Christ during the course of a single week!! Community Bible Baptist Church in St Petersburg FL has been a terrific encouragement to me already and I enjoy hearing what God is doing there! The week of revival and missions conference was definitely one of those precious "times of refreshing... from the presence of the Lord."
On the way home from Florida, I ended up breaking down three times and needing to replace my battery, battery cable and alternator. I praise the Lord that each time I broke down I was in a safe place and had help readily available. I was glad that the cost of the repairs ended up being within the amount of what I had received in special offerings during the trip and then my pastor told me that the church had decided to pay for all of it!! The blessings of God are always beyond anything I could ask or imagine!!
Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement!! You mean so much to me!! Thank you for your part in the Lord's work in the UK and around the World!

Yes, unexpected indeed! Both the surprises that you mentioned and the delightful blessings and bountiful answers to the prayers that you experienced on this recent trip. As your mother, I confess to worrying about you at times, especially when I hear of trouble with your car late at night!! But God, faithful as always, took good care of your needs and also kept you safe in answer to all our prayers! Praise the wonderful name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior!!

It is good to have you home again, even if only for a little while...and then I know that you will be off and gone again. As your support and further opportunities have grown, it has been such a blessing to see God's guiding hand and His watchful care in your life!

Love always, Mom <3
