Family, Friends, Partners and Visitors:
We appreciate your interest in Word in Life Ministries. LaVern and I usually take three trips a year to all the Mission Teen Centers. We are teaching on Who the Holy Spirit is and what are His Gifts. This year I had a unique learning experience. I became one of the residents at Mission Teens to experience what a resident would actually go through to become closer to God and learn to stay free of their addictions.
In September LaVern and I took off on our Michigan trips. We left Minnesota September 9th and got to our first Mission which was in the upper peninsula of Michigan in a small tucked away city called Gaastra. Mission Bible Training Center in Gaastra was so excited to see us come. They are doing a great deal of remodeling and finished the deck of the apartment we stayed in. We taught on who the Holy Spirit is and His gifts.
It is our last trip of the year for the Burdick’s. We will be heading out on October 24, 2018. We will be visiting 5 Missions on this trip. Our first stop will be at Set Free MBTC in Greenville, KY. Our second stop will be at Savannah MBTC in Savannah, GA. Our third stop will be at Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Our fourth stop will be at Genesis MBTC in Newport, AL; and our last stop will be at House of Hope MBTC in Brazil, IN. LaVern said we will be putting well over 3,000 miles on our van. That Blue Town & Country has been a blessing and gets us to our travels safely and comfortably. We praise the Lord for that!
