Dear Friends & Supporters,

Have you ever planned an event and found it full of obstacles? Well, that was our recent experience. What was amazing, is how the Lord led us through every problem we faced. 

There were missed flights because of flight delays. There were delays with constant roadwork. One detour sent us more than 2 hours out of our way including an unexpected ferry ride. We found gas very expensive along the west coast of the United States and in Canada. Hotels were also extremely expensive. The cost of preaching and reporting in 6 churches was the most expensive mission trip I can remember in 30 years. We are not complaining, just stating the facts. I am sure that other missionaries are having the same experiences.

Well those are some of the bumps in the road. I wonder what Paul experienced as he took his missionary journeys. I am sure, they were much more difficult, but he kept pressing on.

On the blessing side we have much to be thankful for. Our missionary journey took us through Oregon and Washington as well as Canada. We had the joy of preaching 12 times and Lucy gave her testimony in each church. We met Pastors doing a great job for the Lord, some under very difficult conditions. Our hearts were burdened for them as we took them before the Lord in prayer.

As we drove almost 2,000 miles, the beauty was breathtaking. Gorgeous landscape and mountain’s covered with trees and flowers. We found the Believers, Pastors and families such sweet people. Our heart was touched by the many folks forward to pray at the altar.

God proved Himself in such a wonderful way and how thankful we are for each of you for your faithfulness to us. Thank you for holding us up as we serve. God bless you.

In His Service,
Preacher and Lucy Smith
