May 2002 Newsletter


A belated greeting from the Bartons. This is just a quick update;Serving in a nursing home there will be more in a couple of weeks.Since April 10th, we have had wonderful opportunities to share Jesus’ love in a variety of places.

My first trip to Protection, KS to share with Randy and Darla Durrim at First Baptist Church went well. The folks there were wonderful and we had great turnouts each night. Then it was on to visits Trammel Creek Baptist in Greensburg, KY. Pastor Lee and Debbie Warf are doing a great work there and again the turnout was wonderful with the Lord moving in some meaningful ways.

I returned for a week and a half at home and was almost immediately called to forest fires. I left the fires to join Melva and head to Abell Community Church in Guthrie, OK with Pastor Van Hudson… I really love these folks. We have shared together for many years now Rick ministering at a youth eventand the Lord has always touched our hearts. The morning after returning from OK I was asked to go to another fire. I’m still working on that fire.

Thanks for your prayers and support! We have been able to give out many New Testaments including a number to firefighters and have done a fire chapel already. I’ve shared my testimony with several firefighters and the plan of salvation with at least one.

Family is doing well, more to come…..Rick and Melva
