A Prayer Request And A Special Visit Ahead

A Prayer Request
Some of you know Pastor John Eaton from Evansville, Indiana. Bro. John has labored in pastoral ministry faithfully along side Sis Debbie for many years. They are really good people, some of the best. We have known them for a long time and Full Gospel Mission in Evansville is one of our favorite places to go.

Bro. John has also served on the board of Boggs Family Ministries since the first day we incorporated over 10 years ago. He is a good man with a passionate thirst to lead people to Christ and disciple them in Christian living. He has been a huge encouragement to our family.

I am telling you this because Bro. John needs God to touch him. He was in a car accident a few weeks ago and has struggled with recovery in one aspect. He is in the hospital again and receiving special treatment. It seems to we working and we are praying for complete recovery. Would you help us pray?

A Special Visitor
Pastor Shobanke arrived in the USA last week and we are anxious to see him. He started in Iowa and will work his way from place to place until he meets us in Ohio in about four weeks. 

It is going to be great to visit with him in person. When he is in the states we talk on the phone more than usual, but face to face is much better.

The last time we saw Bro. Shobanke was last year during the last few days in May. He was in the states and I flew him to Ohio so he could watch folks frame the house we are building for Odie to live in.

He grinned the whole time he was there. I think it might have been the happiest I have ever seen him. He was as thrilled at least as much as Odie was. You may remember that Bro. Shobanke and his church gave the first $220 toward the house. That is several weeks wages for a working man in Abeokuta.

He has given more over the course of the last year and has prayed diligently that what God has begun, He is able to finish. He is very much looking forward to walking into a nearly completed house. His visit will be exciting.

We are planning to visit him in Nigeria this year as well. We usually go near the end of November or early December and that is the plan this year by God's grace. We are looking forward to it.

They are needing to expand the GoodNews Christian School again and we hope to help with that as much as possible. We will also take a suitcase of school supplies and money for other ministry needs as we are able.

As always, we never ask for help for our expenses to Nigeria, but if any one would like to help with these or other projects in Nigeria you are welcome to do so through Boggs Family Ministries. 100% of what you give will go toward the intended purpose in Nigeria.

Revival here at Grace Tabernacle in Bristol, Virginia continues to go well this week. God blessed us in the service last night and we have two more nights to go. Thank you for praying.

We are always glad when you drop each day.
