Greetings Pastors and Spouses, Prayer Partners and Friends,

We trust you had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Yesterday Beth cooked a delicious turkey dinner, and we had a lot of side dishes and desserts.  We had a great time with our sons and grand kids.  Today we'll get together some more at our oldest grandson's house.  It's great getting together with family and friends.

What's also great is what God does in the services.  Let me tell you about last Sunday!

JEFFERSON, WI - This past Sunday, Beth and I ministered at Rock River Assembly of God (our Wisconsin home church) in Jefferson, WI (located in southeastern Wisconsin - about 5 miles from where we live); pastored by Pastors Todd and Kathy Tabor.  We have ministered at Rock River Assembly many times over the years, and we thank God for what He has done in the past and we thank God for He did last Sunday.  Our message dealt with being people of faith with a confident expectation in God.  After the first altar call several responded to either commit their life to Christ, recommit their life to Christ or to make things right with God.  That's always exciting!  After the second altar call it seemed like everyone was at the altar desiring to be people with a greater faith and confident expectation in God.  Praying as the disciples prayed when they said, "Lord increase our faith" (Luke 17:5).  It was a great service with a wonderful group of people at our "home church".  Thank you for praying! 

STAPLES, MN - This coming Sunday through Wednesday, Beth and I will be ministering at Staples Assembly of God in Staples, MN (located about 125 miles northwest of Minneapolis, MN); pastored by Roy Miles.  This will be our first time to minister at Staples Assembly and we've been asked to minister on the Holy Spirit.  Please join us in praying that God will pour out His Holy Spirit in these services.  We need Him again this week! 

LATE CANCELLATION - Due to a scheduling conflict on their end, the church we were scheduled to be at in Minnesota had to cancel their services with us for Sunday, December 11.  They will be rescheduling next year.  If you would like to schedule us to come to your church on December 11, please call or text (920-723-1024) or email us (billjuoni@gmail.com).

MAILINGS - We are now in the midst of our annual mailing season.  A few days ago, we sent out our mailing to the churches of the Indiana District.  We're now working on our mailing to the churches of the Illinois District.  Please join us in praying that the doors will continue to open wherever God would want us to minister. 


INFO AFTER CLOSING THOUGHTS - At the very end of the emailing please read the paragraphs about - MINISTRY CAR FUNDRAISER, BILL'S BOOKS, and FACEBOOK.

CLOSING THOUGHTS - In spite of all that is going on in our world, in our country and in our lives; we have so much to be thankful for.  Not only on Thanksgiving but as it has been said "It should not just be a day of Thanksgiving, but it should be a life of thanks-living."  Whether we understand our circumstances or not is not the issue, for the believer the fact is God is working.  I'm reminded of the story I read about a mom and dad who had two sons.  One was very positive minded, very optimistic.  The other was very negative and pessimistic.  The parents decided to bring the boys to a psychologist to try to figure out why they were so different.  The doctor and the parents put the negative minded boy in a room full of toys and left him there.  They then put the positive minded boy in a room that only had a pile of manure on the floor.  After a period of time had passed, they went to check on the boys.  They opened the first door and immediately the boy started to complain.  The toys were not big enough, fast enough and there weren't enough of them.  Nothing was good.  The doctor and the parents then went to check on the other boy.  When they opened the door, the boy was beaming with a smile from cheek to cheek.  The doctor and parents asked him, "What are you so happy about?"  He said, "There has got to be a horse around here somewhere!"  That should be the mindset of the believer.  Somewhere in the midst of our circumstances God is working!  We may not understand it, we may even like it at the moment, but God is working!  The bridge to the song "Way Maker" says, "Even when I don't see it, You're working.  Even when I don't feel it, You're working.  You never stop, You never stop working.  You never stop, You never stop working."  With God, time is never wasted.  He is accomplishing His purposes.  The Apostle Paul wrote, "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6 NKJV).  Paul also wrote, " In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (I Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV).  To hear a clip of the song "Way Maker" click here.  [We have no control over any ads that may appear.]

Let's agree together in prayer for God to pour out His Holy Spirit this Sunday through Wednesday in Staples, MN.  We need Him!

Together in His Service with You,

Bill & Beth
