“Let prayer be the key of the morning and the bolt at night.” Philip Henry

Evening and morning and at noon will I pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.   Psalm 55:17

Dear Praying Friend,

This morning as we gathered together in the library to pray, Pastor Milton brought up the word “compassion,” and asked us what that word meant to us. Immediately, I thought about encouragement. In the day that we live in, it’s “all about me,” not thinking about what we do or say that shows compassion.

A couple of months ago, Joyce and I were going into a store and I noticed a lady that was struggling to keep her cart from rolling away while reaching for her keys to open the trunk. You get the picture. Anyway, we quickly walked over to her and helped her get her packages into her car and I took back her cart. This lady was so appreciative and had a huge smile on her face when we said goodbye. But, isn’t that what we should be doing all the time? Looking for ways to show the same compassion that Jesus did when He was here on the earth? The best example we can be is what people see in us everyday.

We are so excited that the Grady Workman 25th Anniversary House is done and we are moved in. After 20 years of living in the Director’s Home, we moved into this one-story handicap accessible house. Not that I need that – but the day may come. Michael Gay, our Director, and his family are moving into our old house this week.

In October of 2018, the Watson Byrd family donated a 10-acre farm to Siloam. Since we have plans to expand our camping and retreat facilities, this will allow us to move the majority of Camp Glory operation to this new location. This will also enable us to have an extended outreach in our community where we can share how to raise sheep from a “Shepherd’s Prospective.” It will also give our missionary children an opportunity to interact with local children in our community. It’s been amazing to watch the toughest teens melt while talking to a baby lamb.

Plans continue to move forward as we prepare for our summer work teams and would love for you all to be a part of this.

God continues to use Siloam Missionary Homes as place of encouragement and rest for missionary families. We appreciate and love each of you and thank you for your prayers and the ongoing financial support for this ministry. Your heart of compassion is why missionaries have Siloam Missionary Homes as “a place to call home.”
