Report from Brother Chuck

I have always said that walking with the Lord is an adventure. He has taken me to places in the United States and around the world that I never thought I would visit. This weekend was another adventure to Hurley, WI, in the Upper Peninsula to visit Range Community Bible Church. My good friend Chuck Gerber picked me up in Wausau, WI, and we took a beautiful two and a half hour drive to Hurley. The leaves are starting to change color there, and the temperature was in the high 50s.

Saturday night we met with the Haiti mission team of the church to discuss the upcoming trip, November 5-12. Pastor Neal Schroeter led the meeting with prayer, and then we began to discuss the trip. It was a great meeting. I was really impressed with how they have been studying Ephesians 6, about the armor of God and the spiritual warfare, getting ready for their trip. Also, with the fact that the church as a whole has already begun having car washes, garage sales and bake sales to fund the trip. At this point we have 15 people signed up to go.

Sunday morning I had the pleasure to talk to all the Sunday School classes about TEM and Haiti. Afterward, Chuck Gerber and I were invited to Dan and Jeannie Broth’s home for lunch–what a beautiful Godly family. They have 9 children, and a wonderful home overlooking the woods and their garden. It was a great way to spend the evening.

The Lord continues to bless TEM with new brothers and sisters who are interested in helping in Haiti. This year we are blessed to have three new churches–Greater Little Rock Baptist Church, Pensacola, FL; Hartford Baptist Church, Hartford, AL; and Range Community Bible Church, Hurley, WI–to partner with us.
