Our speaker this evening Friday, September 6 is Steve. He became a believer
in the Lord Jesus Christ when he was 20 years old and soon began
telling the stories from the Word of God to others. When he was 54,
he had a health scare which could have cost him his life. After three months of recovery, and out of appreciation for a spared life, he promised God
he would memorize and dramatize the Gospel of John. Now Steve
presents the Gospel of John to individuals and groups,
making Jesus’ amazing miracles and message come alive.
Steve tells the Gospel of John from memory and in a storytelling fashion.
Scholars suggest that close to ninety percent of people in Jesus' day
could not read or write, so this is an example of how people
of the first century may have heard the Gospel of John told.
Steve tries to maintain close to a ninety-five percent accuracy
with the version of the text he is using. That version, the "Logos 21 Version"
of the Gospel of John (found all around Orange County, CA.,
in evangelistic outreach) can be found online at: LivingWater.org.
Steve has been married to Diane for 41 years, has two grown,
married sons, and loves to tell the stories of Jesus. They both hail from Minneapolis, MN, and Diane, as Pastor Leland well knows, grew up in the very church (Trinity Lutheran of Minnehaha Falls, in Minneapolis) that he first interned for when he was going to Seminary in St. Paul, MN.
You won’t want to miss this dramatic presentation.

VOLUNTEERS IN OAXACA
Annie Schmidt from Oaxaca writes, “We were so blessed to have a group from Quincy, WA this last week. These guys were experienced construction workers and came to serve as needed...and we sure had jobs for them! They also hosted a hamburger and hotdog cookout one night for dinner!”
HAPPY CHILDREN WITH THEIR KITES
Annie continues, “A group from a nearby church came on
Saturday afternoon to make and fly kites with our kids!
They had so much fun!!” How good and pleasant it is for hermanos and hermanas (brothers and sisters) to dwell together in unity.
On this your 30th anniversary of service to Foundation for His Ministry,
we congratulate you and thank you Minerva.
