Bonne Fête Québec!

Monday was Quebec’s patriotic holiday! This song has been accepted as the unofficial hymn of Québec. We are reminded of how much we love the people here and how thankful we are to be able to preach the Gospel here!  Thank you for your continued prayerful support!

Tomorrow, our oldest daughter Valerie flies out of Charlotte with a group of students from Calvary Christian School in Greer, SC.  She and another teacher are leading this group on a mission trip to help missionaries Jared and Rebekah Stevenson for one week.  We ask you to pray that God might use this trip in the hearts of these young people for His glory.  We are so thankful that Valerie’s epilepsy has been under control for several months now.  We ask you to pray for her in a special way during this trip.  It is such a thrill for us as parents to see her and Tom giving of themselves to the Lord’s work!

Christmas 2012

Chateau FrontenacWe will be enjoying Christmas this year in Québec with Catherine.  Stephanie, Jérémie and Dérek will spend Christmas day with us.  On Sunday afternoon, December 23rd we will be hosting an activity at our home for our folks and contacts.

Tomorrow we make another round-trip to the specialist in Montreal for Catherine.  She has been doing much better!  She has a few jobs that are perfect for now like English language tutoring and piano lessons.  The other day she even landed a job helping a teacher in our church correct student’s exams!  These are direct answers to prayer!  Thank you!

Survival Mode

A dear brother in the work here graciously offered to drive us to the airport in VT on Wednesday and what a blessing that was!  Melanie arrived in SC on Thursday in time for supper.  Thank you to Becky Sandquist and another friend from Concord Bible Church for providing the ride from the airport in Charlotte.  Catherine is already doing better but Valerie is not well.  The Sandquist family will need much wisdom in the days ahead as they adapt to mom’s epilepsy.  Pray that Melanie’s time there will be a big help.

Please don’t forget to pray for me (Mike) as I attempt to “hold down the fort” without my dear partner in ministry for the next three weeks.  The current plan is for Melanie and Catherine to return together via VT on October 29th.

Ever since we had to bring our daughter Catherine home from college almost three years ago, the Websters have been in “survival mode”.  Thank you for faithfully supporting us with your prayers through these times.

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” (Ro 5:1-5 AV)

Ladies Conference

Please pray for the Province-wide ladies conference that will be held here in our church on Saturday, September 29th. Melanie has been heading this up and is very encouraged by the enthusiastic implication of our own ladies. The theme of the conference is “Lies we believe.” Pray for the conference speakers who include both Melanie and our daughter, Stephanie.

Summer Intern 2012

Brandon's Prayer CardIt is hard to believe that Brandon’s internship has come and gone.  What a blessing and a joy it was to have him here!  Thank you for praying.  We encourage you to read his last prayer letter:  Brandon’s July Prayer Letter
