Spring 2020

Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

Greetings to everyone during these unusual times. We have had several meetings canceled, but we are enjoying our extended time at home.  We are doing fine in spite of the Corona Virus emergency. We are both well and are getting a lot of things done at home.  Mary has a list of all those things I said I didn’t have time for!  A lot of you are probably experiencing the same thing.

Last Sunday I was still able to keep our speaking engagement. I preached my messages over the phone from my living room easy chair.  Mary keeps on teasing me about becoming a “rocking chair preacher.”  Just before the stay-at-home went into full effect, a church in Michigan was able to streamline the messages I preached. That worked out well.

Our winter southern tour went very well. I traveled to Florida, Alabama, and Texas, 5,400 miles altogether. Praise the Lord for His safety. Mary stayed home for most of it because of the strict diet she is on. She joined me for two weeks in Alabama.

Speaking of Mary’s diet, she is doing very well.  She has lost 22 pounds working on number 23! She has to lose 40 pounds altogether before she can have her operation. She is now more than half-way there. Please keep praying for her. This has not been an easy task.

We will also be introducing a new book!  It will be titled “The Bible Way of Soul Winning.”  We have had plenty of time to work on it in the last few weeks.

Please pray that the stay-at-home order will be lifted soon so we can continue to travel to churches.   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
