My fellow gardeners know the pain of dying squash vines. They produce a bounty of squash and then the enemy of all squash, the infamous vine borer destroys the plant. This year, I staggered my plants over one month apart to extend my harvest. Now the squash are all gone but the okra is coming in like an ocean wave.

In this month twenty-seven years ago, Pathway Outreach Ministries pushed off from the dock to begin its voyage as an organization. Our simple goal was to reach out with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to some of the difficult corners of the world.

To say that our world here and abroad has changed in the last year is a big understatement. Cultural attitudes and societal norms have shifted. As a Christian, I have begun to think more deeply about the implications these things will have on the church going forward. I wonder how long it will be before our American culture revs up its opposition toward Christianity bringing about open persecution. This is not a popular topic but a real possibility.

When I think about the month of May, I think of several things. In my student days and years in education, I eagerly looked forward to the school year coming to an end.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that we in the American church probably like to talk about prayer more than we pray. Prayer takes time and we are too busy checking out YouTube and Facebook. Ouch!
Anytime I have ministered in a church in one of the eastern nations, at least 80% of the congregation wants personal prayer at the end of the service. I have even had some bring their own oil with which to be anointed.

About one year ago, Butch Suddath and I returned to the United States from a mission trip from Asia on January 21, 2020. The news reports were trickling in about a coronavirus from China before we left, but it was mostly a dot on most people’s radar screen. The day we returned to the Atlanta Airport, the first confirmed case in the United States was announced with an individual in Washington state. It progressively grew worse.

Can you believe it’s November? I’m ready for COVID-19, elections, and hot weather to be over with. Anyone with me on this? “I see that hand!!”
The deadline for our CareBox Project for our children in Haiti will be Tuesday, November 10th at noon.

It blesses a bunch of children. Thank you all so much.

We appreciate your prayers and continued financial support. I cannot express with mere words our thankfulness to God and to you for helping us. I pray for you every month. No one takes this journey of ministry alone and your support is an additional blessing of encouragement.

One of our big projects every year is providing school uniforms and books for our students in Haiti. God has blessed us with some great partners; we received and transferred the needed funds in July. Praise the name of Jesus! We thank each one of you who helped with this. School will be starting on August 12th in Haiti which is earlier than usual, so your timely and generous giving was a special blessing this year.
