March – May 2018
Dear Praying Friends,
Greetings from Sunfish Lake, Minnesota, where the weather has warmed, the snow has melted and the flowers are in bloom...finally. We arrived here on Saturday and have enjoyed getting to know the people of Southside Baptist Church. Liz spoke to the ladies at their Mother-Daughter Banquet and then the revival meeting began on Sunday. While here, we have gotten to see several friends from other places, and it is always exciting to get reacquainted with friends whom we haven't seen in a while.
Since our last update letter, we have been to Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Virginia, Alabama and back to Virginia again. Minnesota is a bit off the beaten path for us, but we are excited to see how the Lord will work.
It seemed that Spring might never come, but I believe it is finally taking hold and Summer is following closely behind. We are looking forward to all of the revival meetings and Bible Conferences we have scheduled in the coming months. Make sure you check the itinerary on our website, www.mrogers.com, and come see us when we are in your area.
June 6-9 we will be speaking for the “Live Boldly Single Conference” at South Side Baptist Church in Weatherford, Texas. If you have single adults in your church it would be well worth the trip for them to come and join us for several days of good fun, good food, great activities and powerful preaching and teaching from the Word of God. Single adults often feel left out in our churches and this will be a good time of refreshing, challenge and encouragement for them. You can find more information and register online at www.ssbcweatherford.com.
We have some very exciting news! Our new CD, “I’m Redeemed,” is finally completed, and can be purchased on our website, www.mrogers.com. The CD is also available for download on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play, CD Baby and Amazon. You can listen to the CD for free on YouTube as well. The kids sing with us on every song but one on this new project, and we are so thrilled to see them grow and mature and enjoy singing these songs that convey such profound Biblical truth.
We want to be sure to thank all of you who prayed for us recently during Liz’s health scare. She is feeling much better and adjusting to the medicine and it seems to be keeping her heart rate in check. Please continue to lift her up in prayer.
In the past two weeks, we have had two preacher friends of ours go to heaven unexpectedly. Both of them were young men who leave grieving families behind. If you would pray for the family of Pastor Phil Huber of Walker Bible Baptist Church in Hilton, New York and for the family of Pastor John Turner of First Bible Baptist Church in Mannases Park, Virginia. We were so saddened to hear of their passing, but we are so thankful to know that there is a real place called heaven, and we will be reunited with them one day. If you watch the news, you don’t have to wonder if that day is closer now than it has ever been. May we be faithful until the Lord’s return, and may He find us watching.
God bless you,
