Greetings Pastors and Spouses, Prayer Partners and Friends,

What a beautiful stretch of weather we've been having.  The weatherman just said it's the best stretch of weather we've had all year - bright sunny days with the high temperatures ranging from the mid 70's to the mid 80's, with no immediate end in sight.  He called it "chamber of commerce" weather.

Speaking of a wonderful stretch, we've been having a wonderful stretch of services.  Each week God has been so wonderfully touching lives regardless of what the theme each Sunday has been.

Now let me tell you about last Sunday.  What a wonderful service!  

TOMAH, WI - This past Sunday, Beth and I ministered at Lighthouse Church (Assemblies of God) in Tomah, WI (located 125 miles northwest of where we live); pastored by Bryan and Pamela Johnson.  This was our sixth time to minister at Lighthouse but the first time since the Johnson's became pastors (we had ministered with the Johnson's at their previous pastorates however).  We were asked to minister on the subject of revival.  After the first altar call there were people who 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 people filled the altar, hungry for revival in their lives, in the church and in our country.  It was exciting to see the hunger!  We thank God for what He was doing and look forward to hearing what He is going to be doing.  We thank you for praying.  You had a part in this!

JEFFFERSON, WI - This coming Sunday Beth and I will be ministering at our Wisconsin "home church", Rock River Assembly of God in Jefferson, WI (located in southeastern WI - about 7 miles from where we live); pastored by Todd Tabor.  We have ministered at our Wisconsin "home church" many times over the years.  Each time God has wonderfully touched lives and we're looking forward to what God is going to do this time.  Please join us in praying that God will touch lives.  We need Him again this week!

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 - Recently in the devotional book I was reading by Dr. Mark Schwarzbauer (100 Days Through Matthew, Mark and Luke), he commented on Mark 1:8-13.  In this passage John the Baptist baptized Jesus and immediately after this, Mark 1:12 says, "Immediately the Spirit drove Him (Jesus) into the wilderness" (NKJV).  Matthew and Luke tell us "the Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness".  Why would the Spirit drive or lead Jesus into the wilderness?  Like Moses and John the Baptist, Jesus' ministry would begin in the wilderness.  Here's the key.  The wilderness teaches total dependance on the Holy Spirit.  The wilderness is not a place of undoing.  It's a place of preparation and empowerment.  The temptations in the wilderness were not being allowed in order to stop Jesus.  The Holy Spirit allowed them in order to make Jesus unstoppable.  For us today: the wild beasts may frighten you, the wilderness will challenge you, and the trials may seem overwhelming.  But God has not allowed these things to stop you.  He allows and even drives you to the wilderness to make you unstoppable!  As a follower of Jesus, if you are in the midst of a wilderness experience in your life - be encouraged!  God has not allowed it to stop you but in order to make you unstoppable!

Please join us in praying that God will pour out His Holy Spirit this Sunday in Jefferson, WI.


Thank you so much 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.
