It is the beginning of our last day in St Petersburg Fl for this year.  Later today we begin our journey back to Michigan. During the next week we will be making several stops along the way to see family and friends. I want first to thank everyone that have been praying for us. In our last update I said we
were on our way to a funeral for Dale’s sister. It was such a bitter sweet time
as we shared memories with family. By the strength of God Dale shared a
wonderful message at the funeral. There were tears and laughter as he
remembered life with his big sister Lorraine. He shared of her love for Jesus and her desire that her family would also know Him. Many left the service that day with a change of heart.
In the past 6 months we have said goodbye to several loved ones. This has made us so much
more aware of eternity and the necessity to share the hope we have in Christ. As
Christians we know Eternity will come for all. It will either be eternal
separation from or eternal life with our heavenly Father. Jesus saidGo into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. 16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will
be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:15-16)
