June – November 2018
Dear Praying Friends,
I can’t believe that the year is quickly coming to a close already.
We have had a very busy Summer and Fall as we have criss-crossed the country preaching and singing the Good News of Jesus Christ!
As I am writing this update, it is Thanksgiving Day and we are enjoying some time with Family in Pasco, Washington. We have much to be thankful for again this year, as always! God has blessed us with a wonderful family, good friends and abundant opportunities to serve Him. We certainly have no reason to complain! (Psalm 100)
Liz’s Father, Dr. John Paisley, is doing very well Pastoring Riverview Baptist Church in Pasco, Washington. My mother, Evelyn Rogers, just celebrated her 90th birthday and has entered an assisted living facility in Kenai, Alaska. She is still in good health and good spirits, despite the increasing memory trouble.
Just a couple of months ago a dear friend of mine, Evangelist Bobby Brown, went home to Heaven. He and his faithful wife were a tremendous influence on my life when I was at Tennessee Temple University and God used them to show me what evangelism was all about. Please remember to pray for Mrs. Brown and the rest of the family during this time.
Since our last update we have been all over the country. We have held revival meetings in Missouri, Virginia, Ohio, Texas, Kentucky, Alaska, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Tennessee, North Carolina, California and Washington. Whew! That makes me tired just to write it down.
The coming months will be no less busy, and we are very thankful for all of you who pray for us regularly. We recognize the protection that God gives us every time we head out on the road.
We have covered a lot of miles, but we have had relatively few vehicle problems this year, praise the Lord! We were able to sell our van and purchase a 2004 Ford Excursion 4X4 for our winter travels across the country. It is in great shape and the Lord brought it along at just the right time. We were very excited to get a vehicle from the current century!
Many of you have asked how Liz is doing since her problem with Atrial Fibrillation in the Spring. We are keeping a close eye on it, but so far everything is good, and she has had good reports from the cardiologist. She is taking a small amount of a “beta blocker” and that seems to be doing the job. Thank you for praying for her over the last several months.
Our newest CD, “I’m Redeemed,” has been used by God to be a blessing to many people in our meetings this year. It is also the first time that we have been able to offer a recording in digital form and we have had a good number of people take advantage of being able to download the music. We are working on some new music now, that we are very excited about, but arranging and recording can be a slow process. When it is available, we will notify you on our website.
As we look ahead to the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, we are not only thankful to God for all He has done and is doing, but also for what He has in store for us. God is good!
God bless you,
