Our 24-year old grandson Daniel Lemke arrived home in Colorado safely on July 2, having pedaled 12,608 miles on his bicycle in his 15-month journey to the four corners of the USA, witnessing for Jesus and raising awareness of America's secret sin of child sex slavery. We hope he will write a book about his experiences.
Our son-in-law Dr. Peter Hammond is in the deep South just now, preaching in Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama. He values your prayers.
On a different note, we will appreciate your prayers for our health. Harriett is coping with several issues just now, and since my Memorial Day experience in the ER I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer that has metastasized.
It's impossible to describe the peace the Lord has given me about this. It's almost like He's let me in on one of His big secrets about the Divine appointment we all must keep one day, "It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment." Hebrews 9:27
The Lord has been so precious and real to me this past month that I want Him to have all the praise and glory in my current situation. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega; He knows the end from the beginning. With my last breath (whenever that is) I want to still be bragging on Jesus when I meet Him face to face.
Charles Wesley's great hymn, JESUS! The Name High over All, sums it best:
'Tis all my business here below
To cry, "Behold the Lamb!"
Happy, if with my latest breath
I may but gasp His Name,
Preach Him to all and cry in death, "Behold, behold the Lamb!"
