Family Update from Duane–February 6, 2020

Looking outside you would think it is spring rather than the beginning of February.

This week in North Carolina, we had 70 degree weather which followed 3 inches of snow two days earlier. We weren’t aware they were predicting snow, but it came unexpectedly on Monday morning, and it was beautiful. I left our house to pick up a few items in town, but within a brief time, it had snowed so much I couldn’t make it back up our mountain road, even with a four wheel drive. I ended walking up the rest of the way. In spite of the inconvenience, we loved having this one day of beautiful winter. 

Our family is continuing to focus on “off the road” work. Cindy is mentoring and instructing the girls in their school studies, assisting with ministry responsibilities, helping to take Alisha for her treatments and other household projects.

If you were here, you would hear the younger girls practicing their instruments after school each day, preparing for when we go on the road again.

I’m thankful that God allows me to impact our children’s lives, in spite of my own weaknesses. Every day I ask God for wisdom and guidance because of the magnitude of impact that I have on them.

We have been seeing gradual improvement in Alisha’s health, and she is now able to assist with some meals, and other household things on a limited basis, although she still feels sick most days. 

This past Saturday, Alisha and Brianna recorded a new song. It is one that Alisha has drawn strength from over the past six months, and we know it will be an encouragement and blessing to many of you. It will be several weeks before it’s released as they’d like to also record a video version.

Our family is also excited about having Cindy’s parents coming to visit us for several weeks. Since they are living in northern Indiana, we don’t get to see them very often. We are always grateful for the time we are able to spend with them.

Brianna and I have been focused on administrative work, and right now, we are prepping for three “From Pain to Purpose Intensives” in prisons this year. The first one coming up is April 5-9 at Perry Correctional Institution in Pelzer, SC. It truly is an “intensive” because the team going in will be leading men to look at the painful events of their lives and then walking with them through forgiveness and a greater level of healing. We welcome volunteers to join us for these prison ministry events. If this is something you feel called to be a part of, we would love to talk to you about it.

Keep pressing on and being faithful and obedient to what God through his Holy Spirit is calling you to do today. He is the only way to find meaning and purpose for your life. 

Because of Jesus,
