Update

Life continues to be very full here in Branson -- and due in part to lack of internet at our campsite...and a temporary downage at the theater, this blog has been sadly neglected.

But lots has been happening, and we have daily praises and answers to specific prayers as we're seeing the Lord work in precious ways.

  • Health -- In spite of the changing of the seasons and cold season in high gear, we've escaped any of the bugs going around.
  • The Lord's drawing -- It is really in-explainable how we've been having such great crowds. This morning we had 82 people, and our average attendence is gradually climbing. The only way we can explain it is by the Lord's working and your prayers.
  • Clarity of Message -- We've been able to have good conversations with several people and are encouraged with the opportunities to share Jesus Christ!
  • God's Grace -- On Monday we arrived at the theater only to discover the electricity was down, the sewer backed up, and the heater off. And all this on the one morning we had a bus tour scheduled to come! As you can imagine, there was a flurry of activity, phone calls, etc... as we tried to get everything fixed. And thankfully, everything was ready by the time people started to arrive!
  • God's Timing -- We almost ran out of our advertising cards this week -- Praise the Lord, the new boxes arrived today, just as we were about to run out!

And these are just a few of the daily answers to prayer we have experienced over the past week. We cannot tell you how precious and encouraging it is to know you all are upholding us before the Throne. The days are full, the energy wanes at times, but we rejoice in the goodness of our God and the fellowship of His people!



"God be merciful to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine upon us,
that Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations."
Psalm 67:1-2

As we Marshall ladies are alone on the home front packing up our household, we ask God daily to: order our steps; to provide boxes (He has!!) because one can never have enough when one moves; and to keep the Wissmanns healthy, discerning, and peaceful so you can minister to those who come to hear you! Your update proves again
His ear is always ready! (Ps.77:1). He has heard our request to pass through Branson on the way to Texas, so we'll see what the Lord does!! Who would have "thunk"?!?!

His wounds have paid our ransom,
