In 2020 we faced the covid panic and the shutting down of many churches for extended periods of time. In 2021 we still had a little of that, but I also had to deal with some personal health problems as my physical body wanted to shut down. Thankfully, we have been able to get that regulated to where I have been back to ministering in churches each week. I was able to be in 35 churches and attend most of the board meetings of the 4 centers that are operating at the present time. This year I was voted onto the Assurance Center board, so now I am an official member of all the boards.
This year we had 20 participate in our high school essay contest. As of this writing, I do not have the results yet, but I hope to have them by the time of the meeting.
Last years rally was one of our best attended and the offering received was the largest we have ever received. What a blessing it was. This year we are planning to have two rallies; one in the Southern part of Wisconsin, at Calvary Baptist in Watertown on the 23rd of April, and one in the North in Menomonie at Immanuel Baptist Church on the 30th of April. Dr. Les Olilla will be the speaker at both.
We are planning to host a summit for all the present and potential pregnancy center workers at Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown on the 19th and 20th of August. We plan on having a workshop or two on starting an “Aim” program in the local church. This is a ministry that a local church can have out of their own church. Hopefully, that will spark some interest around the State.
I do have my schedule set until September and it is a real blessing to be able to minister in churches each week. Nancy and I feel so spoiled by the support and love toward us from all the churches we go to. I still need prayer for my health. I have good days and some bad ones but, so far, I have been able to function every Sunday. I thank the Lord for every day I am able to serve Him in this capacity, and for all the prayers and support for Nancy and me as we labor for the Lord in this important ministry.
