Dear Pastor & Church,

TRAVEL

Thank you once again for your faithful prayers!  Since our last letter we have been in churches and conferences in Oklahoma, Missouri, Oklahoma City, Kansas, Missouri, Kansas City, Kalispell Montana, Indiana, Illinois and then back to Tulsa.  Three oil changes later, we are back home for a few days and just thankful for safe travels in spite of snow and ice.  God is good.

TICKETS

It’s hard to believe it, but we have been back for one year on furlough already.  We have tickets to leave June 4th.  We plan on connecting through Fiji and stopping over for a meeting in Nauru on the way to PNG.  Our one-way tickets were $12,200 for our family and are 70 % paid for.  Praise God and thank you.  Our goal is to get the other $3700 paid for and then work on some of the shipping over these next 6 weeks.

TIME

Hebrews 4:9 says, “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”  And verse 11 calls out “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest.”  This reminds me to believe God, always advance forward, and use the time I have wisely by believing God.  We trust this Spring Season has been a good time to think of Easter and the Resurrection.  We look forward to His Return, ultimate rest, and yet want to heed the call to do His work.

Sincerely,

Stan Rowe & family
