Weekly Update - June 19

Please keep Troy in your prayers today (Saturday) as he is flying to Montana with a group of men from the Jackson area to help do a build for a church there. They flew out of Jackson early this morning into Houston only to discover their flight from Houston on to Denver was cancelled due to mechanical issues with the plane. After some juggling, they were able to get a flight around 2 PM to Seattle where they will then fly (after a 4 hour layover) into Montana, arriving at their destination between 11 PM and midnight tonight. Please pray for safe travel for the men. Please pray that their luggage reaches the destination with them. Pray for Troy as he leads the men in daily devotions. Finally, please pray for safety as they work and for the Lord to minister to them as a group this week.

We have a date for our Mexican FIESTA here in Iowa. It will be Thursday, June 24 at 6:30 PM. Please pray for a good turn out and for the Lord to speak through Jenny as she shares with those who attend.

Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. This two week period of separation as a family has been kind of rough, but it's been really nice for Jenny and the kids to have this time with her family. Everyone will be thrilled to see Troy next week when he flies into Des Moines on Saturday.

Happy Father's Day to all of our friends and family members who are Daddies! We love you!

Weekly Update - June 12

Jenny and the kids made it safely to Iowa despite the rain on Friday. Thank you for praying for their safe travel.

We had an awesome meeting in an Independent Methodist church on Wednesday night and were welcomed by the church members. Troy will be speaking again tomorrow morning without the family. Please pray for him as he speaks.

Jenny is still working on putting together a Mexican Fiesta for our friends and family members in the Oskaloosa area while she and the kids are in Iowa. Please pray that they are able to secure a location, find a date and time that works for the majority of the people, and for a good turn out.

Pray for Troy as he is by himself this week in Mississippi. There is more calling for him to do, but 2 1/2 weeks without the family is a long time.

Thank you so much for your faithfulness in praying for our family. We love you!

Weekly Update - June 5

Thank you for your continued prayers. We truly could not do this without you!


1. Continue to pray for Troy as he calls to make meeting appointments--both with individuals and in churches.

2. We will be speaking in a church this Wednesday (June 9) and Troy will be speaking in the same church again next Sunday (June 13). Pray that the Lord will speak through us and that those who hear His message will be receptive.

3. The kids and I will be traveling to Iowa on Thursday for a few weeks with family. The journey will take two days. Please pray for safe traveling mercies.

4. I am putting together a Fiesta for some friends of ours while we're in Iowa. Please pray that all of the details will come together and that we'll have a good turn out. It will be an evening of fun but also a chance to share with our friends what the Lord has been doing for our family these last few years.

We hope you have a great week!
