Dear team members and prayer supporters,
Grace and peace to you in the name of our great God and Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord is still on the throne, and he is manifesting his glory beyond our comprehension.

You are all invited to a special gathering for our supporters and friends. We hope to see as many of you as possible. Yes, we know that the clear majority of you cannot make it due to your location, but for all those in the Orlando area, please come and join us for dinner…and bring a friend, too.
It will be a time of reconnecting with you and sharing what the Lord is doing with us and how you can help. As we have indicated in our newsletters, there are a number of projects we have in the works. We hope to share our vision and answer any questions you may have.
Please join us, whatever your support status is with us. Some of you were forced to stop your financial support due to difficult times. Please don’t let that stop you from joining us. Your encouragement and prayers mean so much to us.
There is no cost for you to attend. Please consider inviting a friend or two. Let them hear what the Lord is doing in Native America.
We will be sending an Evite out soon as well as something in the mail, so please keep an eye out for that. You may reply to this email to let us know you plan on attending.
Location: Orangewood Presbyterian Church, 1300 Maitland Blvd, Maitland, FL 32751
Date: Friday, November 1, 2019
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
We really hope to see you there. It’ll be a great encouragement to us.
I (Patrick) was scheduled to teach a class at the Mokahum Ministry Center beginning September 16th. By God’s good providence, I was unable to go. I had acute appendicitis, which required emergency surgery September 13th. After trying to cope with the pain for nearly two weeks, Regina finally put her foot down and brought me back to the ER (they wrongly diagnosed me earlier in the week). My plan was to ignore the pain a bit longer so I could be on a plane to Minnesota the next day to teach my class. I will spare you the gory details, suffice to say that the appendix actually ruptured, but the Lord saved me from real dangerous situation.
I thank the Lord for my wife. The Lord didn’t call me to be a martyr in this way. It may seem like a set back, but in God’s providence, it is a kingdom advancement in some mysterious way. I am doing fine and quite able to continue working, such as writing newsletters and planning dinners.
What’s on the Calendar?

Pray for us
1. Giving is down — Yes, it is still down. But with this new endeavor, we will need to increase our budget. Please pray as we seek the Lord on what steps to take to increase our pledged support.
2. Pray for wisdom, patience, courage, and perseverance. There always seems there is too much to do, but the Lord loves to show his power in our weakness. There is much to do. We need wisdom to prioritize and keep a good calendar.
3. Pray for our family. Life has been a whirlwind with activity. Our oldest is still in Bemidji, MN at BSU. We miss him.
Native Pastor’s Retreat 2020 – We applied for special funds for this project. Please pray those who make those decisions will see the value of this event and supply us with the funds necessary to make it happen. We will also have a special account opened up for this event. Once it is open, we will let you know how you can contribute to this important ministry outreach.
How can we pray for you?
We would be honored to pray for you. Please let us know how we can pray.
All for the Kingdom!
