“Teach us to number our days, that we may present to You
a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
As time passes, we are asking
God to help us number our days so that we will live wisely before Him.
Danelle’s Knee Surgery Since our last communication, Danelle had
knee replacement surgery in August. She had a few minor challenges during
recovery but continues to heal and work on strengthening her leg muscles. We
praise God for giving her a skilled surgeon, caring and qualified nurses, and strong
faith for a successful surgery! Thank you for praying for her!
Steve’s 70th Birthday I had a delightful 70th birthday celebration on September 7th with most of my family along with many notes and calls from dear friends around the world. I feel so unworthy of the love God has shown me the past 51 years as His child and 47 years of marriage to Danelle. Our 7 amazing children and the 21 beautiful grandchildren are grace upon grace!
I share my birthday with my
grandson Isaac (second child from left), who turned 8. Danelle and I are convinced
that a Christ-centered marriages and families are the most powerful evidence
for the existence of God -outside of Jesus Himself. Loving others,
including your spouse and children, proves that Jesus Christ is alive and worth
following! He said, “By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if
you have love for one another.” John 13:35
House Church Conference It We have not had our
annual house church conference for several years, so we are excited about
gathering October 14-16 in Sophia, North Carolina to worship God, hear from
Him, and build one another’s faith! As the Apostle Paul said in Romans 15, “…that
I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the
other’s faith, both yours and mine.”
1. Pray for Danelle’s recovery from her knee
for my 2 cataract surgeries in November. They will be one month apart.
for our Conference (Oct 14-16) with the churches from Virginia
and Atlanta. Our theme is, “God Has Made Each Person Adequate.” Pray for
Spirit-led Participation, Worship, Prayer, and Fellowship!

Ukraine to defeat the Russian army soon. Pray for revival in both nations!
for being our prayer partners,
