Greetings Pastors and Spouses, Prayer Partners and Friends;
Only one more week! One more week and we'll resume our ministry schedule. I continue to feel great. So grateful to God that I have felt fine throughout the radiation treatment process. We thank God and we thank you for your prayers! We didn't schedule any services in July not knowing what the reaction to the treatments would be. Starting Sunday, August 1st we'll be resuming our ministry schedule.
Meanwhile this Saturday we'll begin our journey to Florida to attend the Assemblies of God General Council in Orlando (August 2-6) and to minister in Florida the Sunday prior to the Council. We're going down a few days early to do some work on our cottage while in Florida.
One last reminder, if you would like to listen to the messages from our recent Wisconsin/Northern Michigan District Family Camp at Spencer Lake Christian Center, click here for the videos.

CLOSING THOUGHTS - This past week our youngest granddaughter (a Junior to be Senior in High School) was selected to the All-Conference second team as an outfielder. This was in spite of the fact that she missed the last 5 games of the season due to a concussion. I was reminded of something that happened earlier in the season. She was playing in the outfield and the ball was hit to her. Meanwhile, the opposing team had a player on third base and they acted like they were going to try to run to home plate. Our son, who was at the game, could hear our granddaughter saying (whether just to herself or to the girl); "don't do it!, don't do it!" All of a sudden the girl made a dash for home plate. Our granddaughter threw the ball, a perfect throw from the outfield, to the catcher who tagged the girl out. The girl should have listened. The point of the story is - there are times God says, "don't do it". The Holy Spirit whispers, "don't do it". If we don't listen and go ahead anyway, we later regret it. Someone pictured this spiritual warning system being like the warning beeps that a pacemaker gives when the battery is running low. When the enemy tempts us, just like the old slogan said; "just say no!"
Let's continue to agree in prayer that no effects appear from the treatments and for safety as we travel to Florida.
Next week our emailing will be coming to you from our cottage in the Sunshine State of Florida.
Thank you for being our partners in ministry!
Together in His Service with You,
Bill & Beth

FACEBOOK – Each week Beth continues to make new friends on Facebook. If you are new to our emailing and would like to connect with her on Facebook, create an account, and make a friend request to “Beth Ann Murray Juoni”. It's been incredible to see the people she has connected with from across the country and even overseas. We have found former parishioners, pastor friends, evangelist friends and many new friends.
