Dear Partners before God’s Throne,
You meet us as we all are praying to God â€œbefore the Throneâ€. He hears and answers according to His eternal wisdom. What a joy it is to know He leads always as we walk.
Your prayers for us encourage us and promote the spread of God’s kingdom here.
Three weeks at home in Spring Valley have given us renewed strength. We are going north into Central and northern California right now, today. The major focus is on the annual MGF Conference August 2 through 7 in Turlock, CA, our headquarters. This is a time of blessing and refocusing on the ministry God plans for us in the year ahead.
July 26 through August 1 we’ll have the privilege of visiting some of our children, some of our grandchildren and some of our great grand children. Many of these listed already love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ. For others we await their becoming children of God by faith.
During this time we also visit donors and share how God is working in and through our lives. These donors also share in these blessings as God works through their provisions. In some instances we stay overnight at their home and have a longer time of fellowship.
Sunday, August 2, Duane and Betty will share our ministry with the Adult Sunday School Class at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Turlock. This is on the second day of our MGF time together. These are special times of blessing for us.
Grace notes: numbers of you shared you prayed daily for us in our tour of the national parks
mostly in Utah. Thank you. God protected us in every way. (Remember the tire blowout story). Then He also provided all our safety needs in one night’s 360 mile drive as we were called to meet the emergency we spoke of in the last letter. God is always our Shield.
Special note: Betty is having some digestive concerns and some medical testings. We won’t know any details until we return in August. Please pray she is healed of these concerns.
These days present special times of counseling and both encouraging and being encouraged.
Thank you daily for praying with us.
Joyfully serving the King of Kings,
Duane and Betty Kepner with Missionary Gospel Fellowship
