You know you’re a traveling missionary family on furlough when you ask your 10 year old daughter what the capital of New Jersey is and she cheerfully responds, “ e turnpike!” For our international friends, the turnpike is the major highway or “motorway” that we take to get to our various meetings in the different northeastern states. By the grace of God, our journeys have been safe.
We’ve survived the cold winter season and are looking forward to the warmer spring and summer weather. Even through a couple of snow storms, God still designs opportunities for His light to shine in the hearts of the lost. I had the great opportunity a few weeks ago, while driving through the snow storm, to pick up a young man called Rasheed who was arduously treading through the snow on foot. After pulling out my “gospel-gun” and giving him a clear presentation of the gospel, he opened his heart and received the Lord as His savior. Another soul! Another miracle! To God be the glory!
e ministry in Ghana is doing well. e few faithful members are still going soul wining on a weekly basis
