Weekly Study and writing

First, let me say that Jonalyn's request to find resources for her article has been met in an unexpected way. On our camping trip, we stopped in the Telluride library. Who would have thought some needed resources were sitting right there on their shelves. You never expect to find much in small mountain towns, but God led us right in.

In other news...

Our weekly Bible study on the book of Mark is going remarkably well. Jonalyn prayed boldly for 12 people to attend each week (I expected 5). So far, our attendance has gone from 20 to 25 to 31! Our little living room is packed out (but there is always room for more!).

And our audio editor is making these lessons our top priority so we can make each study available right way. So far Mark 1 & 2 are on online ( and Mark 3-4 will be done tomorrow!

Pray for this endeavor. We'd love to have as many come as we can possibly fit in our home. Also pray for those who don't know Jesus to find their way here to hear more about the real Jesus. Our study is open to the public, anyone who wants to come. And if you're passing through CO this summer, do drop in!

Also pray for our writing and diligence. Every morning we see our schedules already packed with emailing, maintaining soulation, writing bills, updating blogs and websites, writing updates (the Seasonal goes out today), etc, that it saps some of our motivation and creativity to write for our books (which really is our best writing and probably our most lasting contribution). The enemy knows this. So pray for new bursts of imagination and desire to put our hand to the plow and put God's goodness into words.

Thanks for praying for us and celebrating with us. It's a team effort. And we're glad to report that fruit is abounding and God's name is made great!!
