Move and new Studio Updates

We have almost everything moved in – even all my books, and it’s beginning to feel like home. The studio is coming along and should be functional by the time this update is posted. Charlotte has been working very hard and my sons-in-law are helping with the finishing touches – getting the lights mounted and making a stand to hold the Armor of God. Charlotte has posted some videos of the progress of the studio on Facebook, check them out. We already did one audio recording and are planning to get cracking on shooting some videos as soon as possible. For those of you anxiously waiting for new material, it will be coming soon!

The set is almost done!

From the Road

Denise and I spent last weekend at Silver Birch Ranch near Antigo, WI for a Homeschool Family Retreat. I was the speaker for the five chapel sessions. It’s always challenging coming up with topics and presenting them to such a wide variety of ages. But I feel God has gifted me with the ability to teach diverse groups like that. The first session was just an introduction, then I spoke on having support as you homeschool, biblical archaeology to help strengthen their faith, one method on how to do a family Bible study, and an object lesson on lichens. After the first session, many of the children were seated in the front rows. It was a relaxing weekend with some great fellowship.

Local Event In Stevens Point, WI

Living Stones Fellowship church in Stevens Point has organized a special Biblical Archaeology seminar with Dr Garcia for their local community. To clarify, this is NOT an E4F event (aka we will not be present). Living Stones Fellowship has been a great supporter of E4F since our founding and we’re excited to see them continue bringing Biblical Archaeology and apologetics to their local community.

Funding Update

We keep moving up a little at a time. We are now at 62% of the $12,500 we need for salaries and expenses. As of now, the new studio expenses have totaled just over $2000. This past month, we have received a couple of one-time gifts and a new monthly donor. Thank you for giving to the LORD’s work!! Pray that God will continue to provide and raise up people to come alongside us with their financial support. Maybe those of you already giving could consider increasing your gifts and share us with your family and friends!

Change of Address

If you are having your gifts mailed to us, please remember to change the address! The new address is: 349 Knights Ave Kewaskum WI 53040.

Keep Us in Your Prayers

Please continue to pray for us as we bring the Truth to this broken world:

  • Praise God for the new gifts received! And for those who already give!
  • Praise God for our new location and the new and improved studio!
  • Thank you, Lord, for expanding our sphere of influence!
  • Pray for new opportunities. Maybe you know someone who would be interested in booking an event.
  • Pray for more funding to help us reach our monthly goal of $12,500 to cover salaries and operating expenses! Please consider partnering with us.

Thank you for your prayers! May God’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you!
