Hello, from sunny warm Schuylkill County– we sure have been enjoying God’s blessing of beautiful weather these last few weeks, as it has made our two community outreach days very pleasant experiences. Yesterday was Schuylkill Haven’s Borough Day. We were able to give out over 200 bottles of water- many during the couple of hours where God’s wonderful rays of sunshine were heating things up just enough for folks to get thirsty. Pray that the tracts received would be read and God’s Word would satisfy the thirsty souls that many don’t even realize they have.
I’m excited about the fact that my husband and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary tomorrow. God has been SO good to give us this many wonderful years of happiness. We are headed west to spend a few days with our daughter Sarah in Ohio. On the way my husband has booked a bed and breakfast for us to stay overnight.. All he told me was the town name on the interstate where we would be stopping. He had no idea how easy it would be for me to figure out where we would be going- just googled the town name and only one B & B came up. I didn’t realize he preferred me to be totally surprised (sorry dear, my curiosity won out) but if the place turns out to be half as nice as the pictures it will be great.
Speaking of blessings, the missionary’s ladies have really outdone themselves as well. We received a package Saturday which was great since we would probably be gone before Monday’s mail would have been delivered. — Thanks for your prompt mailing. We tried a truffle or two– absolutely delicious!!! And the rest of the gift will certainly be enjoyed on our trip as well. A well-deserved hearty thanksgiving to the LVBC missionary prayer groups. You have no idea how terrific you all are.
We ask for your continued prayers for HBC. We are facing some future financial challenges- the last time we were in a similar situation God really provided in quite an unusual way. We look forward to how God will answer our need this time. All I know for sure is that “He is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” and “how shall they hear without a preacher?”– Therefore we believe he will make a way for us to continue to minister to these good folks in Schuylkill County. Also please continue to pray for Nathan as he desires to get off of the second shift that he’s been working for over a year now.
Thanks so much for all you do and mean to us!
Love, Sue for the Gable family and HBC members and visitors
