Ruthie, Michael and I traveled to beautiful Vermont at the end of August. We were invited to minister at The Church of God of Prophecy in Barre. We stayed with Pastor Jeff and Sue Kelley and their lovely family.

We had a wonderful time with the Kelleys and their congregation. Each night we experienced the presence of God.

Our youngest son, Michael, ministered in music and song during the Sunday service. Michael is doing so well playing the guitar! I am so proud that he is using his talent to glorify the Lord.

On Saturday evening, there were several churches in attendance from all over the state and one pastor from New Hampshire.

Pastor Jeff invited me to return next year and to travel to churches in New Hampshire and Maine. Thank you Jesus!

September was a very busy month of ministry. In fact, the Lord opened a number of doors within several denominations; Church of God, Assembly of God, IFCA (International Fellowship of Christian Churches), Church of God of Prophecy and others. What a privilege to build the kingdom of God and minister to the body of Christ!

We began the month at Beaver Falls Christian Assembly in Beaver Falls, PA. Members from several churches in the area gathered to worship and receive from the Lord. Each night, the Holy Spirit moved in the altars as people came forward.

The next day, I left for Orbisonia, PA to minister at The Orbisonia Church of God of Prophecy. More can be read of that meeting under, “The Greatest Testimony Ever!

The following Saturday, I was invited by the Association of Christian Churches in Claysville, to speak in my home town at the Claysville Covered Bridge Festival. Pastor Rico Vespa from the Claysville and Zion Methodist Church and Pastor James from the Claysville Baptist Church were in attendance.

Congregational hymns and choruses were led this year by Ray and Justine Nielsen and Mike Horne. They are members of the Washington CCNA were my family and I attend. Although it was raining heavily during the service, the rain of the Spirit was being poured out on those in attendance.

Thank you so much to all of the pastors in our community for inviting me to return again and preach the Gospel during this outdoor event. I especially want to thank Pastor Vespa for all of his hard work and involvement. May God richly bless you my precious brother!

After the service, it was on to the Full Gospel Church of God in Camp Hill, PA. We had an anointed time during our Holy Spirit Conference. Many people were in the altars each night praying for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in their lives, families, and churches.

Pastor Bob and Tena Steele, long time friends of Ruthie and I, were tremendous hosts of the conference. I appreciate all of the kindness and love that was shown to me both in and out of their home.

After the conference, I traveled on to York, PA to minister at Praise Community Church of God. I had a wonderful time with Pastor Adam Bower and his wife Erica and Evangelism Pastor Brian Connolly. I am always blessed and encouraged after being with these two men. Their passion for Christ and love for souls is awesome!

We had a great time of intimate worship and Word. Afterwards the altars were filled with hungry souls seeking and receiving from the Lord. As Brian prayed for one sister, she was instantly healed from a painful back condition that had hurt for a very long while.

Thank you Praise Community Church for the way you have blessed our ministry over the years!

Then it was back to Full Gospel for one more night of meeting. Pastor Bob Steele and I shared testimonies on how the Holy Spirit has used us over the years and then had a question and answer time with the church. It was a rewarding service.

The next evening I was back home ministering at our home church, Washington CCNA. It seemed that the anointing that was at the Holy Spirit Conference in Camp Hill continued to be poured out there. The evening was filled with questions and discussion from Pastor Rob Berk and the congregation about how to hear the voice of God and move in the Spirit. It was a wonderful time!

We finished the month in lovely Petersburg, WV at the  Cornerstone Family Fellowship Assembly of God. I was so blessed to see the new facility and hear the testimonies of praise how the Lord miraculously provided the purchase of the building!

It was so good to see Pastor Steve Landis and to be with the family of God in Petersburg again! There were many testimonies that were shared from the people as they received from the Lord each night. A healing testimony we received from someone who was healed after responding to a word of knowledge can be read at “Testimony from Petersburg, West Virginia.
