update for May

May 23rd, 2018

Dear praying friends. May has been a full month, and it’s not over yet. Mur’s women’s Bible Class had their last meetings of the year – they are taking the summer off. I’ve met with many of those I meet with regularly and a few extra men. It is always a joy to see them grow in the Lord. We all need encouragement now and then. A highlight for me this month was being able to witness at Tulane University in New Orleans the UNITED STATES ARMY COMMISSIONING of a young man, 2LT Hunter Spires, who also was honored as # 1 in the class. I started meeting with Hunter at McDonalds or Panera when he was just a kid almost 10 years ago. We’d have a Coke or Ice cream and talk about life. Now he’s an officer in the Army! And he insists on picking up the tab. What a ride he’s been on, and it’s about to get even more exciting. I’m really proud of him and his walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for God’s blessing on his life as he serves God and our country.
This weekend our grandson, Matthew, will be graduating from High School and preparing this summer for starting his college career at Wheaton College next fall.
Please continue to pray for the radio ministry which touches thousands daily around the world.
We love and appreciate each of you. Lud and Mur
