We wish to
thank all who have supported us in this Ministry.
These past few months we have been extremely busy. We had a break in our ministry schedule and were able to enjoy some vacation time with Pastor Dan and Nancy from Arizona. Jennie had a hospital visit with kidney stones and feared she would not be able to make the trip, but God worked everything out. We visited our granddaughter Shandie when she received a number of special awards at the University of San Diego and the trip back picked up her brother Mason from Hume Lake. He had an exciting trip to the Holy Lands with his School the Joseph Wilderness Institute. While we were away our granddaughter, Sarah Hunt, received a large Scholarship at an awards ceremony at her school and we are proud of all her achievements, as well and we were sorry we could not attend her special night.

We have also
been busy with the Ministry. We went on motorcycle rides with the out-law groups
and the Harley group plus J C and Us Ministries events and biker meetings.
We are very pleased that we have three new members to J C and Us Ministries, Richard Bigger, his son Mathew and Gabriel. Each one helped at the Western Festival.
May was the
Western Festival in Elk Grove and it is always a great time of Ministry there.
This is an email that Greg West sent out during the Western Festival, and
it describes what the event is about and why we are there as a Ministry.
Hello Fellow Sojourners in the Lord,
Today was an active day for the JC and US ministry. Just
some thoughts for you to ponder.
Let's consider what people at the Western Festival experienced today.
They arrived to experience an outing full of good food, venders where they may
have found something to purchase or a service provided at a later date. They
possibly experienced horseback rides, an exhilarating ride in the amusement ride
section, watching a western gun fight, enjoying a sit down to here a band or 2
while catching some sun. I am sure you can add to this list many things the attendees
of this event experienced.
Should they have met up with our end of the park they would have
been greeted with a friendly challenge? That challenge? To consider their
eternity and who gave His life that they may have this gift of eternity with God
Many were spoken to and a seed was planted for these to consider the
Lord Jesus Christ as the only means of salvation and a reason for hope here and
Can you see any of these people pondering their day and finding
emptiness in all of it except when they remember the challenge to consider their
I would like to ask you to pray that God would have the victory
through this night and that those that heard the gospel today would not turn
away from it as if it was just another menial experience along with the rest of
the activities they involved themselves in.
Pray that these folks have the eyes of their hearts opened to grasp
the truth of what has been shared with them and then accept Jesus.
From there, it is the Lord's work to draw whom He may.

Some of our regular helpers that always came could not make it this year, but God had it under control sent those He wanted. We received another phone call from Ron and Marilyn our friends from Folsom and one from a woman named Terry who heard Greg and Marti West share about the Ministry in there Sunday School Class. They all came and helped both days. To them and all the others who helped WE THANK YOU. Both days were extremely busy for the Lord, but praise God for all the seeds where planted for Him. Using the gospel murals painted on Rich’s bike, Rich was able to share of God’s love with pictures and words which led a man to receive Jesus as his savior. Another man rededicated his life to the Lord
morning started off with a Spirit Filled Worship Service, Richard opened the
Service, Howard led the music part of the Service with special music by Greg and
also gave the message. There was a Gospel poem by Eric and Jennie and Randy
presented a Gospel Skit. There was something for people of all ages.
Ministry part was also extremely busy days, face painting, and many pictures
were taken on the trike, then they received the framed picture with the plan of
Salvation on the back of the frame.
It was a
great Ministry time at the park and we could not have been there if it wasn’t
for our Ministry Partners.
there may be two new events for the Ministry. There may be a BIG outreach right
here in Elk Grove with Monte Perlin’s Globe-O-Cross on father’s day weekend.
An email will be sent out when and where, and another in Minnesota in August.
This may prove to be interesting. Sturgis is in early August and Minnesota is
late in August with Mason’s graduation August 8th so we have to be
home. We praying about how to be home in time for the graduation and still
attended both events. One way is to
rent a car leaving our RV and all the supplies in Sturgis or to fly home and
then come back to Sturgis and go to the Minnesota event.
When we are
not on the road we are still busy with the local motorcycle events and
Thanks you for your Support.
