March 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Family and Friends,
While January allowed us to catch our breath, February has been very busy! During February, we were privileged to be in 8 scheduled meetings in KY, WV, OH, MD, PA, and NJ, as we as three other churches! We drove over 4,200 miles, averaging over 150 miles per day! The Lord provided 2 new supporting churches, and several other churches which may provide future support. Near the end of the month, we had a few days at home to restock and repack for our next 10 week marathon! From late February until early May, we have 54 services scheduled between 8 missions conferences and 12 other church meetings.

As we saw Valentines Day approaching, we happened to be very close to Washington, DC. We had a the perfect opportunity to celebrate Valentines day (a couple days early) in DC. Apparently, we picked the right day to see Lincoln's Memorial. We just happened to be there for the celebration of Lincoln's birthday! Jeremy had the privilege to preach a Valentines Banquet at Victory Baptist Church in Homer City, PA. We are thankful that we serve a God who has proved his love for us in sacrificing His only begotten Son! It is our desire to love one another as Christ has loved us! As Jeremy drove home to GA, he drove through some very thick snow in PA. To make matters worse, the car's engine began shaking very badly and running rough. Thankfully, after a short while, the car ran well again and Jeremy was able to return home. Eventually, we were able to diagnose the problem and replace the front ignition coil, which seems to have fixed the problem.

We are so thankful to have people all over the world who pray for us! Last month, we asked you to pray for a man named Johnny, who received the Lord as his Savior. He has recently been baptized and attending church regularly. Praise God! This month, please pray for the following:

1. That Johnny will join the church and continue growing in the Lord.
2. That the Lord will provide safety as we travel.
3. That the Lord will enable us to quickly raise the remainder of our support.

In Christ,
Jeremy and Michelle Blanz

February 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Family and Friends,

January was an exciting month for us. We saw 3 new supporting churches, one church that has given a large one-time support offering, as well as one other church promise future support. January is usually a bit slower as far as traveling is concerned. We had three scheduled meetings in FL and WV. With some extra time on the phones, we were able to book 16 meetings in the states of NC, WV, IN, MI, PA, and NJ. We now have several months completely booked and a few more that are almost fully booked. We are on our way to a very busy year of deputation!

During our time in WV, we were able to see more than our fair share of snow! Thankfully, we were able to get in and get out without any hindrance to our drive. During our time at home, we were able to catch up with some friends and family. We also had the opportunity to speak to both our teens and children at our home church. Jeremy always enjoys getting to be a part of our weekly door-to-door visitation. Last month, we told you of Johnny, who received the Lord as his Savior. In January, he came to church and expressed desire to do right. We hope that he will follow the Lord in believers baptism and join the church.

Thank you for all of your prayers! We know that the Lord has been faithful to keep us safe and provide for every need! This upcoming month, we will be traveling from TN to KY, WV, OH, MD, PA, and NJ. Please pray for the following:

1. Johnny to grow in the faith, be baptized, and join the church
2. That the Lord will give us protection as we travel
3. That the Lord will help us raise the remainder of our support by the end of the year.

In Christ,
Jeremy and Michelle Blanz
