Wayne and Donna Hart – councilman and wife pastoring in West Clarksville, NY
Tuesday, June 12
From Sunday morning until last evening, Donna had gone about 40 hours of breathing on her own. This was a great step forward!
During the evening, due to exhaustion from not sleeping well the last two days, the doctor made the decision to put Donna back on ventilator support. This has allowed her to get some rest as she continues to get stronger.
Please pray for Donna as she continues to rest, and pray for Wayne and the family as options are evaluated regarding Donna’s care for the future.

The buyer of our house lost their job and the purchase of our home was cancelled today before closing tomorrow. That cancels our new home purchase. We must start over. Please pray for a quick re-purchase of our house. Please pray we can find another house. We believe that this is the providence of God and He has a plan. As Daniel praises God in Dan 2:20-21, God is sovereign! That keeps us sane and gives us peace. We are thankful we have a place to stay with Shanna’s parents while everything else is in storage.

Roy had a quick trip to Five Mile and back on the 2nd & 3rd. Thank you, Joyce & Tony, for hosting him in your home once again! It was good to report and communicate with our sending church.
Coralie came home back to our house as she has a long road to recovery, and Kaia exceeds her weight limit for care! Declan is growing nicely and a good baby. Kaia keeps us all busy! We welcomed Declan to church on Sunday and gave him his own little Bible.
Sunday was also Children’s Sunday where each of our kids received a plant. We love our church kids! All were there except for little Enoch.
Continue to pray for the sale of our land on MLS. We need a buyer to purchase and are presently working with a local bank to cover the financing until the land sells. Selling would make the process much easier! Pray, Pray…

“For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11. We certainly couldn’t have begun to imagine in 1982 when we began our missionary journey, where it would take us or how long it would last. We have nothing but thanks and blessings for God’s steadfastness and your faithfulness in prayer and support. WOW!!!
The first thing we want to share is the fruit God is giving in Fullerton. We have five children (ages 8-13) and five adults ready to be baptized and join the church, plus two more adults ready to join! Because of the number, the baptism will be at a local public lake. Please PRAY for these folks and for their witness to family and friends and perhaps bystanders. WOW!!!
Our church has other opportunities this summer to shine for the Lord. July 4th we will have a float in the parade, give all float participants water, and serve a free picnic meal to anyone enjoying the celebration. Of course, we will accompany all these activities with tracts and conversation about the Gospel. The following weekend is our county fair which is held in Fullerton, so we will have people present with a craft and conversation to direct people to the Lord. Please PRAY for fruit. WOW!!!
Not to ignore our JOY Club and Youth group, we have given the Genoa kids scholarships to the appropriate camps. At our closing programs we had great participation from both the kids and the parents. The last week in June is Day Camp at Whispering Cedars Baptist Camp. Typically, we have buses that go to Genoa and Fullerton and pick up kids at 9:30 AM and return them at 3:30 PM. We anticipate about a total of 100 kids. This is in place of a VBS program for our churches. Please PRAY the we will see salvation and growth in these young people. WOW!!!
We did have two wonderful trips in May/June to Florida and Wisconsin and witnessed two granddaughters graduate from high school and another granddaughter get married. Peter participated in the wedding-a real thrill for him. We are eagerly awaiting a visit this summer from Sarah and her family who minister in Belgium. They have served there for the past twelve years. WOW!!! Later in July Stephen and his family who now serve in Racine, Wisconsin will be visiting also. We are so blessed to have all our children serving the Lord in various ministries. WOW!!!
We will be heading to Iowa in July for the BCP Family Camp at Faith Baptist Bible College. It is always a blessing to reconnect with our fellow missionaries. An added blessing this time will be seeing our son Jonathan who is now a vice president with BCP. In September we head to Ohio for the fall BCP council meeting and hope to get to New York to report to a couple of our churches. PRAY that this would work out.
Once again thank you for your faithful support and prayers.
