Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

It has been a wonderful fall for Scripture Memory Ministry.  We had some good meetings in Wisconsin, Indiana, and West Virginia.  While preaching in Wisconsin, I had the privilege of detailing a 1938 Model “T” Ford. It came out looking beautiful and it sure was fun.  One of the meetings in West Virginia was a four-day revival.  The Lord really worked among the people of that little country church.

The biggest highlight of this fall was our missions trip to New Mexico. We spent two weeks working with the Navajo people.  We stayed on the Navajo Reservation with a missionary pastor.  Brother Neil Foerester and his wife have been there forty-three years, faithfully serving the Lord.

While in New Mexico I preached in several churches in the area, including Bro. Foerester’s where we had a four-day revival.  We had a question and answer session every night after the preaching.  God really worked in those meetings.  The people were very faithful and brought visitors to the meetings every night.  The last night of the meetings, they had a special fellowship for Mary and I. They made Navajo tacos and gave us some very beautiful gifts they had hand-made. 

Brother Foerster and I also had three jail ministries a day most of the time we were there.  We had some wonderful Bible studies and many good question and answers sessions. In one service I taught for 45 minutes, and then answered Bible questions for another two hours!

While in New Mexico I also preached at the senior center twice and had a Bible study at the Navajo University with some of the staff.  Another 2-hour question and answer session followed that Bible study.  The Navajo people are really hungry to learn God’s Word.  They did not want us to leave and are begging us to come back.  God is so good!

We would like to wish you all a very Christ-centered Christmas, and very happy New Year. Please continue to pray for us as we travel, presenting God’s Word.  There are many more hungry people out there wanting to learn the Bible.

In His Service,
David and Mary Barker
