“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.” Psalm 37:7
Dear Friends & Supporters,
The above verse has some very important words to consider…
First the word rest meaning, stop, hold peace, quiet self, be silent, put to silence, be still, wait.
Next you have the word wait. Meaning to tarry.
Then the word patiently. Wait carefully.
These words are Gods admonition to His children. This is not always easy to do, especially for someone like Lucy and myself. We have for years tried to be busy for the Lord and carry a very heavy schedule.
After traveling to Colorado and Nebraska, reporting to three supporting churches and driving 1000 miles, we experienced a terrible sand and dust storm, which I have an allergy to. As mentioned in our previous newsletter, we both arrived home very sick and in need of seeing doctors, taking medicine and most importantly, resting.
We have rested for the last month, yet were able to do our online Seminar Ministry and Zooming work. Now we are ready to pick up the torch for the Lord. In July, we will be in two states preaching in five supporting churches and then minister in one church in Canada. We will be in one new church also. Please pray for us that these ministries will be a blessing and encouragement.
We will be reporting in our next letter on these missionary journeys and are very thankful to all of you who pray and support our service to Christ as Missionaries.
In His Service,
Preacher and Lucy Smith
