One More Time
Mark Rogers Family
Dear Praying Friends,
The days are getting shorter, the leaves are beginning to fall and the weather is cooling. It looks like Fall is upon us.
We had a busy Summer, spending July in Idaho, Washington, Montana, Utah, and New Mexico. It was over 100 degrees most of the time, and yes, it was dry heat, but so is your oven! In spite of the high temperatures, we had great meeting with excellent attendance and we had several people trust Jesus Christ as Saviour. Praise the Lord!
August found us in Ohio, Indiana, and Kansas, before taking David to begin his freshman year at Heartland Baptist Bible College, in Oklahoma City. Hope was already there, so we got to be together as a family for several days, and we got to sing together a couple of times before leaving them. It was really a blessing to be able to spend that time together.
The last Sunday of August we were in Missouri, at Lee’s Summit Baptist Temple. It was our first Sunday to be a duet again, so we had to do some quick arranging and re-arranging of songs! That Sunday was also my birthday (yes, I got older again!) and they went out of their way to have a special celebration after the service on Sunday evening. Praise the Lord for good friends!
Thank you for praying with us about selling our fifth wheel. After some repairs, it sold in August, and we were able to “break even” on it. We were blessed to have it, especially while raising our children, but it was far too much for just the two of us. We will miss that season of our lives, but we are enjoying the new season.
In September and October we were in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Virginia, and Iowa. It has been pretty much non-stop, but we are enjoying serving the lord together.
As I write this today, I am sitting at the table in the prophet’s chamber of Calvary Bible Church in Byrdstown, Tennessee. I am looking out the window, enjoying the beautiful scenery. The leaves are starting to change, and are slowly falling. It is peaceful and beautiful.
At the same time, Israel has suffered a brutal attack, and is now at war. Russia and Ukraine are embroiled in conflict. China and Iran are threatening war. The United Sates is a mess. We are experiencing the intentional destruction of our economy, border and moral foundation. The whole world is in crisis, and it certainly looks like some real trouble is coming.
But I have good news! I believe that very soon we will hear the trumpet of God, and all those who are truly born again will rise to meet Jesus in the air, and be with Him forever!
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
Let’s redouble our efforts to reach as many as we can with the good news of the Gospel. Jesus is the only hope for this wicked world.
Thank you for lifting us up in prayer, and being fellow laborers with us in the work of the ministry.
God bless you,
Mark, Liz, Hope, & David Rogers
