Update October 16

Autumn greetings from Dallas, Texas.

“O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people. Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. “ Psalm 105.1-2

We had three people come to the Lord at Angulo Sunday. Attendance was down because of the extremely heavy traffic caused by the Pan-American Games that are being celebrated in Guadalajara these days (October 9-31) Terrible traffic congestion, wonderful days of evangelistic opportunity! Pray that many athletes and visitors come to know the Lord during these games.

I haven’t received reports from the missions and other outreaches yet from last week’s activities. But 3 came to Him at Angulo.

I have been in Dallas since last Saturday. Change is so uncomfortable, so sure to come, sooner or later. I have resigned as president of Missionary Revival Crusade, and most fittingly, the youngest son of the founder, Bro Daniel Ost, has been elected the new president.

I served as president for 27 years (less 4 months) after Bro Danny founded MRC and served 27 year until his death. Please pray for Ben and Debbie Ost in this new adventure.

Linda and I have formed our own tax deductible ministry, called Power Planting International. You have seen that name before. It was the name of our branch under Missionary Revival Crusade. (Each missionary has his own branch and branch name under MRC’s covering.)

So now, instead of receiving donations through MRC we will be receiving them directly to Power Planting (PPI.) Our new address for those donations is:

Power Planting International
P O Box 277
Waxahachie, TX 75168-0277

I talked to Linda this morning. She continues to improve in her health. Her kidneys are not responding on the same level as the rest of her body – so we ask you to pray about that, please.

Linda and I will celebrate 54 years of marriage later this month. Then in January we will begin our 46th year of missionary service in Mexico. Previously we had served 12 years in Texas, Oklahoma and Puerto Rico. God has been so FAITHFUL all these years. And how we praise Him for it. We look forward to as many more years of service as the Lord will give us life and strength!

Thank you for YOUR prayers! Have a joyful time in Father’s House with His people, worshiping Him tomorrow.

In His Grace,
Roger & Linda
