Busted Flat in Texas

Van broken down          Last week we were traveling up Rt 283 just north of Brady, TX when our van just stopped. We had it towed to the nearest Sprinter mechanic in Clyde, TX who happened to be swamped. Finally after waiting seven days, he had the opportunity to carefully inspect our engine. He concluded that our engine is “dead on arrival”.

Our Sprinter has been a blessing as we carry the Gospel throughout the United States, living out of it most of the year. Being nearly ten years old, rusting in spots and well over 200,000 miles, we feel it is not a wise investment to sink twelve to twenty-three thousand dollars we have been quoted to replace the engine.

We have continued to trust the Lord, seeing His fingerprints on this entire event. The question now is what to do. Since we have ruled out fixing the old van, we are considering other options to continue the Gospel ministry.

As musicianaries, we have very limited personal funds for such a huge expense as replacing our van. But we serve a mighty God who we trust will make every provision in due season.

Please pray for us to have discernment and direction to find just the right replacement van. Pray that this vital ministry to the unchurched will continue.

It is our passion to share Jesus with the American people. It is hard to believe that in this once Christian influenced nation there are communities that are indifferent, and even hardened against, the message of Jesus Christ. As musicians, we have been able to penetrate these communities and soften ears to the name of Jesus. Together with the local body, we scatter the seeds, water the tender sprouts and sometimes reap a harvest.

How can you help?

We are thankful for a small church here in Clyde, TX for taking us under their wings. They keep saying that God had us brake down ‘here’. We are sharing with them on Wednesday night. They are contacting other area churches on our behalf. This Saturday they are hosting a bake sale in hopes of raising $1000 toward another van. Wow! We are so blessed and praise God for putting us here.

We are also grateful to our musician brotherhood for making connections. Ricky Russ at Inspirational Country Radio has welcomed us, affording us time on the air to plead our cause. Please send out some love to Ricky and West at Inspiration Country Radio / ICRFM Facebook

  • Pray – God moves through the prayer of His saints.
  • Give – No matter what we do, we need funds. We minister year round and do not have a surplus of funds to tap into should an event like van replacement arise. Donate here.
  • Host Us At Home – Plan a home concert to introduce us to folks that may be interested in partnering in ministry.
  • Host Us At Church – Our focus is to the secular community and it is helpful to minister in Churches that are able to take up a love offering or partner with us in regular support.

We continue to pray.

A Piggy Bank for God!

Joshua has a job feeding his neighbors cat, and he is learning responsibility.

There are a lot of very special people in our lives and I would like to tell you about Joshua. The really cool part that Joshua has in this ministry is his sensitivity to prayer. His parents tell me that often they will be doing routine things during the day when out of the blue Joshua will suddenly say: “We need to pray for Howie and Debbie, right now”. Then he prays.

So back to Joshua’s piggy bank
Piggy Bank for God

Joshua has a job feeding the neighbors cat which is teaching him responsibility, and he is learning to tithe as well. He had this idea to start a Piggy Bank for God. His grandmother brought him a cute yellow pig that has no opening to take the money out. Perfect! Diligently he put in his pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters each time he got paid, and the bank began to fill up.

Joshua and DebbieLast night I was at a Bible Study with his mom when Josh came running up so excited to show me his piggy bank, telling me the story of how it’s his “Piggy Bank for God”. Then he hands it to me and says, “Here, this is for you and Howie because you’re missionaries”.

I can’t quite describe to you the feeling I got, but it was like an overwhelming sense of responsibility having been given this treasure. Immediately I prayed and said “Lord, what would you have this money used for?” Immediately I remembered something from last summer.

Ten Commandments CoinAs we travel we love to have things to give to children. It helps them remember what they have heard and most children love little treasures. Last year we found The Ten Commandments Coin sold by Living Waters, a ministry of Ray Comfort. This is perfect to share with the children we meet while ministering throughout these United States.

So Young Joshua will be sharing an important part of the Word of God with hundreds of children across America this summer
becausehe was faithful to fill a Piggy Bank for God.

Thank you Josh!

Ten Commandments are found in Exodus 20
And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother.
  6. Thou shalt not kill.
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.
  8. Thou shalt not steal.
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.
  10. Thou shalt not covet
