Fall 2021

Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

It is hard to believe we’re looking at fall already.  My dad used to tell me that the older you get, the more time flies. I believe that more and more.

In April we traveled to South Dakota to a church near Mount Rushmore.  This was a new church and they were very excited about learning Scripture. While we were there, we went to Custer State Park.  We had a lot of fun! Donkeys actually come right up to your vehicle to be hand fed!

We then traveled to Missouri to one of our supporting churches. They are very dedicated people and love the Word of God.

After a weekend of preaching in Illinois in May, we traveled to northern Minnesota, near the Canadian border. I had the privilege of preaching their high school graduation.   I also preached a three-day revival meeting.  One of the families made me a beautiful quilt. It has Bible verses and Bible stories all over it.  We stopped in Superior, Wisconsin on the way back and I preached a mid- week service. My nephew, David, was with us on this trip and got see his first 1,000-foot freighter ship close up. That was exciting!

The next weekend we traveled to Michigan, where they had a King James Bible Day.  It was fun teaching the Biblical truth of the Word of God.

June thru August we traveled to Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, Chicago, and Indiana.  Everywhere we went we saw a great desire to learn the Word of God.

We also did two Vacation Bible Schools this summer. One in Indianapolis, Indiana, and another in Osseo, Wisconsin, with my model train layout.  There were many good decisions, and some were for salvation.

We also have a busy fall ahead of us. Please continue to pray for our health. I am doing fine, and Mary is having good days and bad days.  We’re getting older, but we believe that we have some years left to continue to serve the Lord in this ministry!

Please pray that the Lord will continue to supply our needs as we travel to churches, and for our safety on the roads.   What a privilege it is to serve Him presenting our ministry and getting people back into their Bibles!      

In His Service,
David and Mary Barker
