Dear Team Members,
How we thank the Lord for the part you have in our lives not only in the past, but also now.
Thank you so much for your part in our lives. Thank you so much for your prayers. Without prayer, neither you nor we would be effective!!!!
Just this past week Connie Cain, who is one of our elderly retirees had to be admitted to the hospital and stints were put in to help with his ongoing heart problems. Up until now the doctors refused to do this due to his already severe bad health. Family thought Connie would not be with us much longer, BUT GOD spared his life and gave Connie more time to be with us here on earth. Connie and his wife Mary have a BIG part in the Prison Ministry that Cherrie is involved in. How thankful we are for his improved health!
We continue to be involved in various areas here at our New Tribes Mission Retirement Center, and thank the Lord as He directs our steps each day. We are some of the younger retirees and it is still hard to see so many failing in health.
We look forward to our upcoming trip to Australia. We head out to Kansas to see our son Ray on November 13th. It will be GREAT to see Ray who is doing well these days from donating a kidney to his friend Dan, and of course see our new great-grandson! We will fly from there to Australia on November 25th. We SURE look forward to seeing Ben and his family, as it has been 3 ½ years since seeing them, and also co-workers and friends we have not seen for years. We look forward to all the Lord has in store for our time there with family, and the work we were involved in between Australia and New Zealand for 34 years. We fly back to Kansas on February 28th and after getting our feet on the ground head back to Florida. How thankful we are for the way the Lord has provided to cover expenses for our airfares, plus accommodation and transportation is being worked out! HE IS SO GOOD – ALL THE TIME!
May the Lord be your constant encouragement.
All Because of Calvary,
Charlie & Cherrie
A SHOCK! We recently heard from Charlie’s cousin Gary, who is in ministry in Alaska, that it has already snowed up there! YIKES – WINTER IS ON ITS WAY!!!
