Tonight I stand before 150 children ranging from five years of age to fifteen years old. What a challenge with such a diversified age group, and what a challenge to reach our children of today and to explain truth, respect and love. God, help me, as You have so entrusted me with this audience tonight – may they see Jesus, not I.
God has breathed new life in these old bones this spring. These last few weeks were busy with a speaking tour in GA, TN, VA, NC and SC. The appointments ranged from doing two weekends of women’s retreats, a deaf church, regular church, prayer conference, Bible College and Missionary School. The schedule was full but by God’s grace we completed the task set before us.
We head to Michigan on May 4th and on the 5th will tape a couple of radio programs with Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth and then speak for Mothers and Daughters that evening. Then we return back to Ohio on the 6th to hitch our trailer and will head north to Vermont until November.
There is much excitement as we return to Vermont which holds our ministry, WaterBrooks. The Lord has blessed us and this summer we will erect our first Prayer Cottage and be ready to serve those that God sends our way. We have attached a 4 minute clip of WaterBrooks which will give you a glimpse of the foundation which this prayer ministry is built upon. Be sure to turn your volume up to hear the sounds of WaterBrooks.
Please pray for us whenever God brings us to mind. Pray for the volunteers that come to build this refuge, this strong tower of the Lord. Pray for the pastors, missionaries and others that He sends to rest beneath His shadow to be restored and renewed. We invite you to WaterBrooks, as well.
May the radiant days of spring hold new life and joy for you and yours. He has risen my friend, HE HAS RISEN INDEED!!

Faithful Women of WaterBrooks
We seek to be a vessel, an outpouring of God’s love, to bring the good news to the afflicted, to bind up the broken hearted, to set the captive free, to comfort those who mourn, and to bring the oil of gladness and the mantle of praise to all that we meet and serve.
We undertake our mission through our outreach of ministering to the spirit, mind, and body, whether it be in renewal through silent retreat and prayer at WaterBrooks, through encouraging those with deafness and other physical challenges at Kennels of Levi, or through meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters among the homeless with Operation Silent Night.
We strive to fulfill our mission, not through our own might and power, but by resting on the firm guiding hand of faith in God’s providence, provisions and promises…for what He has started, He will so complete.
