We finished our final week in Lake Mills, Wisconsin with Pastor Vince Kobosh and the Rock Lake Baptist Church. We had a very good meeting with these dear people. Sunday through Tuesday we held regular services with faithful members attending each night. We had great turn out for Family Fun night! Complete with an outdoor cookout, this service took place on Wednesday and had more of an outreach emphasis.  We were able to get into the local public schools and had quite the reception when we played bluegrass and invited teens to the Cola Wars. Many came on Thursday night as a result, and ultimately came to know the Lord! On Friday we held an outdoor concert in the Commons Park in downtown Lake Mills. Nearly 300 people attended this final event. We are thankful for the good things God did in our last meeting with these dear people.

We drove over to Brookfield, Wisconsin to spend our final Sunday together with my home church, Brookside Baptist. It was a joy to see Pastor Ken Keltner. It was also good to be able to connect with the music director, Phil Emory, a former team member.

We had a final banquet on Saturday and said our goodbyes to Rachel Dalrymple and Bethany Roberts. Rachel is going home to Atlanta after serving with us for two years. Bethany will be going back home to Japan with her missionary parents. We have truly loved both of these wonderful ladies and will greatly miss them. As the traveling year has come to an end, we are all so grateful for the things God has accomplished in lives and hearts. It has been a joy to serve local churches, preach the Gospel, promote the ministry of Cross Impact, and love God’s people. Please pray for our team as we all break for the summer and participate in various ministries.
