Prayer Guide – August 2021
Blessed is the man God corrects, so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty, (Job 5:17). This advice was good but did not apply to Job. We pray to thoroughly understand a person’s situation before offering advice. Please pray for Bill Brown and his health issues.

As you may or may not be aware, our son recently graduated from Veterinary School and took a job in Stockton, Illinois as a Veterinarian. His preference is large animals – specifically dairy. It just so happens, dairy farmers run deep in our family. My grandpa was a dairy farmer, as was my dad, and three of my brothers.

The salesman at the furniture store told me, “This sofa will seat five people without any problems.”
I said, “And just where am I going to find five people without any problems?”
Summer is great. A little more rain wouldn’t hurt, but God has provided just enough at just the right times to get us through. God always gets us through.

I have a couple things on my mind today. 1) I belong to an Internet shave club. It’s simple: every month they automatically send me four sets of razor blades to shave with. I never run out of blades. I never have to try to figure out which brand to use or where to buy them from. It started out costing me one dollar a month. Of course, the one dollar thing didn’t last very long. Within a few months it was up to four bucks and then six.

You come from dust and to dust you will return. This is why I don’t dust. It could be someone I know.
Summertime means kids, lemonade and cookies, popsicles, ice cream, and Vacation Bible School!
Great little story – We thought we were going to need to send out an all points bulletin on the need for more cookies for VBS. But then, on Monday afternoon my phone rang. It was from a lady who lives in Lexington, Illinois and is the bookkeeper for Fellowship of Christian Farmers International (FCFI) – an organization I’m involved with. Here’s how the conversation went:
Praise the Lord Moment
Good morning everyone,
Is it just me, or does it seem like the days are getting shorter?
Reminder: Because we are immersed in VBS this week, there will be no Tuesday Bible study today or Thursday Bible Study. We pick up next week where we left off.

But, when the time had fully come, God sent His son, born of a
woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might
receive the full rights of sons (Galatians 4:4,5). As God’s heirs we can
claim what he has provided for us, our full identity as His children.

After reading about the happenings taking place at Martintown Community Church over the last several months, several of the faithful readers of this column have taken the scenic drive to Martintown, Wisconsin to visit us on Sunday morning. Some have even come back. One person referred to us as “a spot in the road.” That’s a pretty accurate description of Martintown, Wisconsin and we’ve adopted that phrase as our own. We’re a tiny little town sitting peacefully on a hill overlooking the Pecatonica River in Green County, Wisconsin. The town was founded in 1850 by Nathaniel Martin, who just happens to be the great, great, great grandfather of my wife, Cindy. It was important to Nathaniel that the people of the Martintown community have a formal place to worship, and in 1879, at the age of 63, he and one of his sons built the original structure of the church building for a total cost of $1200. To this day, we still worship in that same building.
