Dear Pastor and friends

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from Northern Idaho. Winters strong grip is finally beginning to loosen, as we are starting to see bare ground in our yard. We have had more than our share of snow this year, and records have been broken just south of us. We are more than ready for spring to spring!

I have just had the privilege of leading a man, who was raised Catholic, to Christ. He was under conviction through out the Sunday service, but didn’t step out at invitation time. The Holy Spirit was working on him all through out the week, for he was ready and just needed me to guide him. There is nothing like being apart of someone coming to Christ, to put a little air under your feet, Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord, for His unfailing bounty! He has continually supplied all of our needs right on time, as we continue to seek Him first. Although we had recently lost $90 support, another church just took us on for $100! The Lord has been so faithful to poor out His blessings, which are more than we could have ever hoped for.

I have also recovered from all of my health issues. The Christian Brotherhood came through on their part of the medical payment, and my doctor knocked his bill down by 40%, which covered the deductable I was supposed to pay. Glory to God!

I am especially blessed to be able to serve God with my dear family. As you all know, I am blessed beyond words. All of our children are still happily at home, while Jeffrey has recently been leading the singing, and doing a great job. He has written 13 songs now! They are starting their “our” 5th CD. I just found out that they are panning to include “old” Dad on this one. I am honored!

The church is doing well. We haven’t lost any members and are still adding, slow, but sure. The people God has given us are really growing spiritually and in unity. We are a real family, at Family Baptist Church.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support. We sure need both in the days we are living in. Praise the Lord for His great grace. God is so good!

Your fellow servant in Christ,

Jeff Bickish
