Lasta’s Letter – Spring 2009

Philippians 1:6
“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

Dearest friends and family in Christ,

Many greetings in Jesus Christ who loves us all the time.  I’m very glad that I can send you news and to be your partner in this ministry.  Praise God!  Let me tell you what God has been doing wince the winter.

March and April have been busy months at Teen Missions in Canada.  We have been doing several presentations to various small groups.  It was amazing when we visited one ladies Bible Study, because the ladies were so interested to hear about how God was using Teen Missions to bring the young people to God. In April, we went to Toronto to the Missions Fest.  Compared to last year, it was very crowded!  This year we were able to be in the booth more and talk with people as much as we could, and have also been manning booths at many Missions Conferences around the country.  We handed out about 400 brochures, and talked to many teenagers as well.  It may be too late for them to come on a summer team this year, but if it is the Lord’s will, they could go next year.

In March, Dorci and I joined the choir at the Presbyterian Church for Easter.  We were so glad to be a part of the choir and to worship God with His children in the church.  In April, Dorci and I left for Florida to the Teen Missions headquarters.  I will be a leader on a Preteen team (ages 10-13), which will take landscaping to another level.  The Smiley Face Landscaping team will learn the construction skills necessary to poor and paint a concrete smiley face welcome sign at the Teen Missions headquarters.  They will live out their faith as they visit churches, nursing homes and daycares in the area.  A tour of the Kennedy Space Center is sure to be a memorable day trip.  This will be a wonderful challenge for me because this is the first time I will be a leader in Florida.  I know God will help me through all of this, and He will give me the ability to love the kids and the ability to communicate to the team.

Continue to pray for me as I serve Him at Teen Missions in Florida.  Pray that God would use the ministry and make it fruitful.  Thank you so much for your kindness and your prayer support; I really appreciate it.  I am able to be strong and stand up in Him.  May the grace of God always be with you.

I would like to hear from all of you!

In Christ,
