Spring 2019

Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

It is hard to believe that it’s already May!  This year is flying by and we have been very busy serving the Lord.  Everywhere we have traveled we have seen God’s blessing with good decisions. People are getting saved and making a serious commitment to get into their Bible and depend upon it for strength and guidance in their daily walk with God.

Our year started out with a preaching tour of ten churches in Florida and Alabama.  Some of those were new churches who fell in love with our ministry.  I also made my yearly appearance on the radio.  What an opportunity to reach thousands of people at once!

In March we traveled back home to preach in Chicago and Indianapolis.  I did a revival with my model trains in Indy.  We had visitors and good decisions every night.  The pastor said it was the best week of meetings they have ever had.

Also in March and April, we traveled to Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri.  One of the greatest highlights was preaching at our home church.  The people were still talking about the message and what a help and blessing it was several weeks later!

Please pray for Mary as she is trying to improve her health. She has high blood pressure.  The doctor told her to take it easy before she has a stroke or heart attack.  She will be staying home a lot this summer to try and get this under control. 

We have many more churches to preach at this year. We will be heading to Northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Mexico, and back to Florida to name a few.  My father told me before he passed away seven years ago to “travel and serve the Lord while you can.”   We are praying that God will give us many more years before our health gives out. There is so much more to do for the Lord!

We continually thank the Lord for His safety and protection as we travel so many miles each year.  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
