Dear Pastors, Friends and Churches

I thank the Lord for each and every one of you who have been our loyal supporters for so long. You are all a joy and blessing to us and have been, now, for almost forty-eight years. You are all loved and appreciated.

At this time we are in a quandary between thoughts and plans. We are in desperate financial need as John's health and ability to travel creates many problems. We have a list of many of your churches that have told us to call if we need a place to sing, but our number one problem is "Will John be able to perform His songs or even remember how to play his chords on the guitar?" I can help him with words, but am at a complete loss as to the chords. We are hesitant to call, even knowing that we have lived by Faith for all these years, and "Faith" is our greatest source of help, but to be truthful, at this time my faith is faltering. I am not sure if God's purpose is to "Continue On" or "Stand Still and See the Salvation of the Lord."

Whenever we stepped out on faith to sing for the Lord forty-eight years ago, even at that time we wondered if, someday, we would have to return to a job. That is an impossibility now. Many have asked about retirement and God has been so good and we have been so blessed, and, now, after faith for living for 48 years, it is more fearful to retire on Faith. Bank accounts and Savings accounts have never been a part of faith. But even with all the doubts and fears, we know our God is an awesome and loving God and He will provide for our needs.

We are awaiting His answer from you all. If you are willing to overlook our physical weaknesses, please call and let us know your desires. We have several open Sundays. God bless you and our prayers be with you as we are

Pray for us, as we

…Stand Fast in the Faith,…

I Corinthians 16:13
