MISSIONARY NEWS – BILL & RUBY SHADE – We finished our Awareness Tour the end of July, but I am still deeply concerned about the issues I raised during the tour. The incidents of persecution against Christians solely because of their faith continues to escalate world-wide. Hardly a day passes that this present Administration does not continue to assault our religious liberties with new and ever more pervasive rulings that reflect the most anti-Christian bias this country has ever experienced. May God have mercy upon us if the present policies continue into the next Administration. Thank God for those who are standing in this crucial time. In August I learned that I once again had a growth in my bladder that had to be removed. With surgery, then infection, then adverse reactive to medications, I lost over a week confined to bed, but thankfully that seems to be behind me now and we’re awaiting test results. We are now prepping for Singapore September 21—looks like I’ll be speaking about 15 times (Ruby will also be speaking to the ladies). We covet your prayers for health, strength, safety, and the fullness of the Holy Spirit as we minister. We return home October 4th, travel to PA for our grandson’s wedding, then will fly to Ethiopia with Dr. Harmon and Jeff Broome. I really covet your prayers. Beginning in November, we are planning for an extended period of determining what God has for us in the future, being “still” to listen to our Great Commander in Chief. I confess that I am tired, but I believe I am not finished. Thank you for your love and prayers.
