This past week I traveled from Rensselaer, NY to Wappinger Falls, NY visiting pastors and churches. In all, I visited 35 churches! My goal was to ask for prayer requests and pray with the Pastor. A group of our staff do our best to get together each week and pray for the pastors we have visited. I also provided each pastor/church with information about future conferences and updates of what is happening at Word of Life. I met one pastor in Averill Park who shared that his wife and her family came to Word of Life when she was three and while hiking with her family, got lost in the woods. Our staff, including Jack Wyrtzen, helped search until she was found. A couple of years later, she trusted Christ at the age of six as a camper at the Ranch. I also had thr privilege of attending prayer meeting on Wednesday night at First Baptist Church in Rhinebeck. What a great ministry and kind welcoming people. I talked with a lady who attended our Single Mom's & Kid's Conference this past spring. She and here daughter were so blessed and while here, they heard about our STC staff. Her daugher applied to serve at the Ranch this past summer and spent the summer serving in the kitchen. She can't wait to return this summer! It is so encouraging to be out on the road!

We had an awesome meeting last Tuesday featuring one of our founding directors, Harry Bollback. Harry shared about the lives of several people who were used of God over the years at Word of Life. Each of these people had the joy of “watering” seeds that had been planted by others. Some of the people he talked about included Walter Oliver (the first host of the Word of Life Inn), Chris Williams (caretaker of the Inn and discipler of young men), Leon Dillinger (one of the young men who was discipled by Chris Williams and has served for 52 years as a missionary in Irian Jaya/West Papua), Ernie Lough (grandfather of Don Lough, Jr.). When the meeting ended, Harry was available to sign copies of When the Arrow Flies, the book he wrote that chronicles their years of missionary service in the jungles of Brazil.
