August 2012 Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

We trust that each of you are doing well and hopefully getting some rain! Despite the fact that Summer is typically a slower time for missionaries, last month was a very busy month for us. We were able to present our ministry and/or preach in 8 different churches in FL, GA, TN, and KY last month! When we weren't traveling, Jeremy was able to contact roughly 850 churches and build many new contacts! We were able to book meetings and missions conferences in 10 new churches, including churches in FL, GA, OH, and MD. We also took advantage of every opportunity to be involved in door-to-door witnessing that we could. We had the privilege to speak to those who are born-again, those who are unsure, and those who clearly knew that they were not saved. May we never forget that there is a mission field all around us!

While we travel to different churches and present our ministry, we get to go places we would otherwise never get to go. Michelle and I were able to see parts of Memphis, TN and walk the downtown of Athens, GA- Home of the Georgia Bulldogs! It was also good for our family to be able to spend a little time with some of our family and friends. The little time we had at home was a good opportunity to clean and work on our second home- our car! As we travel, we try to pass out tracts whenever possible, but sometimes all we have is tracts from our home church in Jacksonville, FL. Although I explain that our church is in another state, I still give out the Gospel. Every time I give one of those out, it is a reminder that the Gospel travels with us wherever we go. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.”

This month, we are scheduled to be in GA, TN, and KY. Please continue to keep us in prayer for the following:
  1. Safety in traveling as Hurricane Season picks up.
  2. That God will use us as witnesses in every place we go.
  3. That God will continue to help us raise support so that we may bring the soul-saving message of Christ to the people of Nicaragua.
In Christ,

Jeremy and Michelle Blanz
