Winter 2019

Dear Praying Friends in Christ,

It is hard to believe that this year is almost over!  My dad told me when I was a boy, “The older you get, the more time flies.”  He was right.

We had a wonderful fall.  Our meetings took us to Pennsylvania, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin, Texas, and New Mexico.

The preaching tour to Texas consisted of three churches.  Mary spoke to the ladies at one the churches. She was a big hit.  The night I preached at the church, Mary was so swamped with ladies around her that the pastor and I had to take down the back table, which is normally her job.  I’m not complaining, it was a wonderful sight!

Another church meeting in Texas was a mission’s conference. It went very well.  The pastor bought us a heavy-duty ice chest.  It really works well and is a big blessing to us with all the traveling we do.

Our missions trip to New Mexico was a blessing.  I preached in seven churches, two jail ministries, and two senior center meetings.  One of the churches was an evening service with three speakers.  A lot of the Navajo people traveled over 70 miles to get there. They stayed for all three preachers and a fellowship afterwards.  Now that’s dedication.  

Please continue to pray for Mary’s health. She might have to miss part of our southern winter tour because of it.

We are home for the holidays enjoying family and our home church.  We hope you all have a very merry and blessed Christmas, and a Happy new year!

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
