Thank you for your prayers and support! I am excited to write to you this month. The last 5 weeks have been a blessing to our family with many NEW things happening during our deputation.
First off I would like to introduce the newest member of our family, Kathryn Grace Ballinger born July 4th at 10:22 A.M. she was 8lbs 2 oz. and 21in long and has a head full of hair. She is such a blessing to our family. McKenzie is doing well traveling with me already. Malachi is adjusting to not being the only child and loves his little sissy.
In our last letter we shared with you that we were in need of a newer vehicle. I am happy to tell you that the Lord has provided a 2004 Suburban that we will, Lord willing, be able to use in the remainder of our deputation.
Even with a new baby we have been busy on the road with several meetings, presenting the ministry, and preaching. We were blessed to be a part of the Power of Two youth camp again this summer where we were able to see 14 saved, 10 called to preach, and one young man surrendered to be a missionary to Honduras.
Our support level is now 51% (PRAISE THE LORD) but as we look ahead we know that we are only half way there. Will you make it a matter of prayer that we will be able to raise the last 49% of our support quickly as we hope to reach the field by spring.
