Thanksgiving Greetings from Steve and Sandy Aholt,
We are assured that being thankful does not depend on what is going on around us. God is at the very center of everything that goes on in our lives. We are so thankful for what God has done in our lives, that we mindfully leave His fingerprints wherever we go. We want to be sure that if we are ever arrested for being a Christian, that there will be enough evidence to convict us – to the glory of God.
The Fall time is one of our favorite times of the year. One bright sunny day, a young girl came to our door – homeless, single, and pregnant. We were able to take her in and show her God’s love. She felt that she could never be perfect enough to be a Christian. The leaves and their beautifully blended colors gave this girl a picture of the church. Each leaf has imperfections, but each one blended together made up something beautiful. Sandy was able to lead her to the Lord, before she was placed in a home associated with the Salem Pregnancy Care Center in Winston-Salem, NC. She delivered a son and is now married to a Christian man.
It has been our privilege to be in three missionary conference during this past month. We spoke at two and visited one. God knows exactly what we need and He sends the right people to meet those needs. Thank you for your prayers during those times of safe travel.
The editing work has resumed once again now that we are back at home. Good progress is being made. Please pray with us for clarity of thought and accuracy as we do this work.
Both of us have matriculated through the policy guidelines to volunteer work with Restoration House of Greater Kansas City. We have some advanced training classed tonight and tomorrow. This training will equip us to be a part of an emergency response team, when needed. Thank you for your prayers for us as we assist in this ministry.
Our mission tells us that we are officially $406.57 per month under supported. Please pray and ask God what you can do to meet this monthly need. We are being good stewards of what God gives us. We know that He has and that He will provide for all of our needs.
Thank you for writing to us, sharing prayer requests, and encouraging us with your words and through your prayers.
Listening for the trump and praying,
Steve and Sandy Aholt
