Ministry in Missouri 

It was such a blessing to get to spend Easter Service with our sending church family. We had the opportunity to sing with the choir and help in the children’s ministry, both of which we love. 

We then spent the next Sunday with Southside Baptist in Springfield, MO. What an incredible time we had celebrating this church’s 80th anniversary! We were given the opportunity to share our calling to Uganda. Nolan also preached and encouraged the family at Southside to continue being a light and loving the lost as they have done for the past eight decades. Thank you Southside for letting us celebrate with you and for loving our family.

Encouraging Time in Iowa 

We had such a wonderful time in Albia, IA, with Albia Baptist Temple. Janay taught children’s Sunday school and Nolan was able to preach. We then presented our calling to Uganda later that evening. They loved our family in such a caring way by having cake and ice cream to celebrate Nolan’s birthday after the evening service. Thank you Albia Baptist Temple!

The next Sunday we made our way to Humeston, IA. We were extremely blessed to spend time with this church family and the pastor’s family. Pastor Ron was Janay’s youth pastor, and both he and his wife, Amy, have been very influential in her life. It was a joy to talk to them about ministry and share our heart for Uganda with the family at First Baptist Church. Thank you FBC family for letting us be a part of your services!

Prayer Requests & Praises

Please continue to pray for our growing family as we travel. Kayson has been a great traveler and has never met a stranger. Even so, it can be hard on a two year old to be in a different church each week. Please pray for his heart as we travel and that we will have wisdom as we train him in the way of the Lord.

We are praising the Lord for hearing from Napa Valley Life Church in Napa, CA. They are our newest supporters. Thank you NVLC for partnering with us on this journey! To God be all the glory.
