Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

We apologize for the lateness of this prayer letter.  Shortly after we finished our second tour of the year, we started having computer and internet problems on both of our laptops.  We finally broke down and purchased a new laptop computer.   Scripture Memory Ministry now has its own e-mail address:  Scripturememoryministry@gmail.com.  We are looking forward to hearing from you.

This year is going very well.  We had some wonderful meetings in Florida with many good salvation and other decisions in January and February.  We had our model trains with us on this trip and we set it up in several churches.  It helped bring out many visitors.  I even had the privilege to speak at a boy’s ranch while in Florida! This was something new and exciting for me; and what a thrill to see the alter filled during the invitation!

My wife and I have also been to Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee already this year.  Many of these meetings were 3 and 4 day revivals, and one of them was a soul winning seminar.  I also preached at 2 graduations.  That was certainly an honor and a privilege.

We will be traveling to Arkansas, and then to two meetings in the Chicago area before I travel out to the Pacific northwest for several Vacation Bible Schools.  The churches in Washington and Idaho will be enjoying the model train layout with their VBS programs.  I am excited about taking with me a teen boy to help with the trains, VBS, and to learn about the ministry.  I will also be going to a new church in Oregon.  Mrs. Barker will be staying home to enjoy a long needed break, and to spend time with her family. 

We are also happy to announce that another church has taken us on for support.  This gives us about 75% of the support we need.  God is so good!

Please pray that God will continue to bless our ministry and supply our needs.  We also ask that you pray for safety on the roads for us as we travel.  We are still looking for more churches to support us.  We are excited to travel to churches trying to get them into their Bibles, and to depend upon God’s Word for the answers.

In His Service,
David and Mary Barker
