MISSIONARY NEWS - THE SHADES - Recently I brought the charge to the new Pastor of South New Milford Baptist Church in northern PA. He is Dr. Ray Mitchell who was saved years ago at Camp of the Nations and served with me as Camp Director for some years. What an honor, privilege and blessing to see so many old friends and share the excitement. Next I represented SLM at this year’s Lancaster Bible College Mission’s Conference. I endeavored to point some to Missions where their gifts and interests could best be used by God and had several meaningful conversations with students. I started experiencing some health problems, and upon my return, had bladder surgery for a “low grade” (non-aggressive) cancer. We have so very much to be thankful for. I came through the operation with a minimal amount of difficulty. The doctor believes that he got all the cancer and now all that remains are those pesky follow-up visits for the next couple years. Won’t you lift hands of praise to God for His mercy? Praise God for His care, safe travel, productive meetings, and successful cancer surgery. Pray that God will bless as we teach 2 courses over the next several weeks, and for meetings in April and May. Thank you for your prayers and communications to us.
