July 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

It's hard to believe we are now more than halfway through 2013! While June is often a bit slower for missionaries, we have managed to stay quite busy! Last month, we had 8 scheduled meetings in 5 churches. Several of these churches are strong possibilities for future support! During the times that we did not have a service scheduled, we dropped in a couple of other churches as well. Our travels have taken us into MI, IN, NC, and NJ for well over 3,500 miles of driving. During these summer months, we thank the Lord for a good working AC in our car! Jeremy was also able to spend a decent bit of time on the phones booking some meetings in MI, IN, PA, NY, and even MA!

During the week we had at home, we were able to spend some time at our home church during camp meeting. Jeremy was also able to be part of the men's prayer breakfast. Apart from seeing some family and friends in Jacksonville, it was good to see some friends in NC. We also got to spend some time with Jeremy's family in GA. These seemingly small things mean all the world to missionaries who are on the road for months at a time! After being gone for so much of the last few months, we took some time to clean the house and get it ready for our next baby, who is due in early October.  

As we move into July, we are looking at another very busy month. Apart from driving home for a pre-natal appointment, we do not have a single open service in July. We are praying that through these churches, God will supply our need to get to Nicaragua. For the month of July, please pray for the following:
     1. Michelle and her pregnancy
     2. For God to quickly provide our remaining needed support.
     3. That God will help us to share Christ with those we meet on our travels.
     4. That God will guide and direct us as we continue booking meetings.

In Christ,
Jeremy and Michelle Blanz
