One More Time
Mark Rogers Family
Dear praying friends,
Another year is already upon us and going by just as quickly as the last one! 2024 has started out with great challenges, as well as great blessings.
Hope and David were able to be home with us for their Christmas break, and we had a wonderful time with them. During that time, we didn’t do revival meetings every week, like we normally would, but we just went out on the weekends and had special services.
That allowed us some good family time at home, while still allowing lots of opportunity to sing together as a family. We were able to have special Christmas and New Year services in Illinois, North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, and just had a wonderful time sharing the truth that God became flesh and died for our sins.
Last year Hope’s car began to die while she was at college, so we planned to find her another one over the Christmas break. The day after Christmas, David’s car was smashed, front and back, in a multi car collision. Needless to say, we ended up having to find him a vehicle as well.
The next couple of weeks we were on the hunt for vehicles, and they each found one that looked like it would be just what they needed.
As they were heading back to college, they had gotten about four hours down the road when Hope’s new (to her) car died on the side of the road. As it turns out, the timing chain broke, destroyed the engine, and then blew out through the catalytic convertors.
Needless to say, replacing the engine and the convertors was going to be twice what we paid for the car, so it will just be a total loss. We are confident that the Lord knows all about it and has the entire situation well in hand.
They were able to get her things in David’s car and get back home, where we re-grouped and sent them away again with Hope driving our little Nissan Cube. Praise the Lord, everyone was safe, and they made it back to school. They are both doing well and enjoying studying music.
After getting the kids on the road, I flew out for revival meetings at Bible Baptist in Vallejo, California, and Canyon Hills Baptist in Apache Junction, Arizona. Those meetings were a real blessing and I believe there will be some lasting fruit from both of them.
While I was “out west” Liz was able to fly up to Washington and spend some time with her father. He has written a book about the role of the assistant pastor, and she was helping him get it finalized so that it can be published. When it is finished, we will let you know. I’m sure many of you could be challenged and encouraged by his years of experience and the principles from the Word of God.
We finished the month of January at Old Suwanee Baptist in Buford, Georgia, where the Lord gave us a great revival meeting, before heading north to Massillon, and Lancaster, Ohio, for meetings.
In the next couple of weeks, Liz will be speaking for ladies meetings in Plymouth, Indiana, and Berlin, Ohio, in connection with our revival meetings. Check out our facebook page (Mark Rogers Music) and the itinerary page on our website (www.mrogers.com) to see where we will be, and then make plans to join us when we are in your area.
We are working on some new music, and will let you know when it is available.
Thank you for continuing to lift us up in prayer. We really need it and definitely appreciate it.
God bless you,
Mark, Liz, Hope, & David Rogers
