I almost forgot to mention an important change.
The certificates shown in the photo are from our school. As you remember, we were in missions training school from January to June of this year. We also went the next step and were ordained into the ministry the following week.
Now we have completed the final step. We are licensed missionaries through our school, International Gospel Outreach. One of the things they will be handling for us is the donations that come in and give us the ability to follow the calling of working in disaster ministry. They will provide a tax deductible receipt for each donation. If you have any questions as to the validity of this organization you can look them up at www.igoministries.org and read all about them. We are very fortunate to be working with them and hope you will note this important change.
From now on all donations should be sent (with a separate note with our names on it) to:
International Gospel Outreach (IGO)
PO Box 1008
Semmes, AK 36575
The checks should be made out to IGO but no notation in the notes section of the check. They need that separate note, no matter if it's on a scrap piece of paper! :)
We also want to once again thank all of you who have donated to us in the past and do so on a regular basis! You are our life!!! Without you we could not continue our calling. No donation is too small.
This evening we are "resurrecting" our Small Group Bible Study in our home. We start with dinner and go from there. This Small Group has been family for quite a few years now and we are looking forward to having everyone together again. As God continues to tell us, everything is about relationships. And all our relationships are based on our relationship with Him.
I would also ask for special prayers for our neighbors. Tony and Evie have been our neighbors for the past 12 years and he is scheduled to undergo surgery this Thursday in Indianapolis for a mass that was located near his stomach. Tony has already had 2 heart surgeries and although he is a very strong man he and Evie could surely use your prayers right about now.
Thanks again for continuing with us on our journey. May God bless and keep all of you!
Until next time . . . Susan and Monty
