Greetings Pastors and Spouses, Prayer Partners and Friends;
It's been a bitter sweet kind of day today. It's our last day in Florida as our three month ministry tour comes to an end. It's been a great tour of services and we thank God for all He has done. Today has been a day of saying goodbye to our friends. We're going to miss our friends and the beautiful Florida weather. It's been in the 80's all week and for the next week it will continue in the 80's.
On the other hand, we look forward to seeing our sons and their families and our friends up north. Please pray for safety as we travel north. Also, pray for a good report as I get back the results from the prostate biopsy I had two weeks ago.
BLOOMINGTON, IN - This coming Sunday, Beth and I will be ministering at Grace Assembly of God in Bloomington, IN (located 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis, IN); pastored by Vernon Bettis. This will be our first time to minister at Grace Assembly but we have ministered several times with the Bettis's at their previous pastorate. Please join us in praying that God will pour out His Holy Spirit. We need Him!
UNIQUE MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY - A week ago, Beth and I were contacted by a fellow Assemblies of God Evangelist, Donna Sparks - home based in Tennessee, who has a podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. She asked if she could interview us via Zoom for her podcast, to be broadcast around Pentecost Sunday. We recorded the podcast this past Monday. She was a great host and we had a great time doing the podcast. We trust it will be a blessing and minister to all who watch it. If you would like to know more about her ministry click here.
SCHEDULING - Since last week's emailing we have scheduled ministry in Reedsburg, WI. Please continue to join us in praying 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, GOODSEARCH and FACEBOOK.
CLOSING THOUGHTS - Last Sunday on Easter Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Jesus. While believers celebrated the resurrection of Jesus, there were others who didn't and who would try to discredit it. It reminded me of a devotional I recently read. It was reported in the news that a professor in Florida told his students to write the name Jesus on a sheet of paper, put the paper on the floor, and stomp on it. All the students did except one! Out of love and loyalty to Jesus, he said he wouldn't do it. Even when threatened with dismissal, he refused to submit. This leads us to ask the question, "Why would a teacher, even an atheist, do such a thing?" Answer: Because people sometimes fight what they fear. So why do some people hate Jesus? Because deep down they fear He is alive and they will one day have to give an account to Him. If they can disprove the resurrection they think they have nothing to fear because He is dead The problem is, the historical truth of Jesus' resurrection is beyond dispute to any honest, open mind. No matter how much some people want to deny the reality of Jesus and the resurrection there is a day coming, "that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow...and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord..." (Philippians 2:10-11 NIV). One day those who denied it, refused to believe it or tried to discredit it will have to admit Jesus is alive, was who He said he was and they will have to give an account to Him. Our task as believers is to share the good news of Jesus with them while they are still alive because once this life ends it's too late for them. Our main task as believers is to share the good news of Jesus.
Please join us in praying for safety as we travel north and for the service in Bloomington, IN.
Thank you for being our partners in ministry!
Together in His Service with You,
Bill & Beth
