Dear Brethren and Missionary Friends;

It is difficult to believe that this day says that one-half of 2014 is history.  Let us be busy about our Lord’s work for time is short.  Our temporary address is still:
615 Key West Ave.
Davenport, FL 33897-3600
(Our son, Paul’s, cell number is:  239.227.6551)

We are living with Paul and Wanda in the house he has rented until something permanent shows up.  Alta and I appreciate all the care and help they are giving two oldies.

This last month we have had the blessing of visiting several long-time supporting churches here in Florida.  We visited the Jordan Baptist Church in Sanford, Florida.  Brother George Sledd is the faithful pastor as well as treasurer for BFM.  We were happy to see old friends and enjoy their fellowship.

Last Sunday we visited the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Mims, Florida.  Brother David Humphreys is the pastor.  Brother Humphreys has been a long-time giving and praying friend.  Our fellowship began in the 12-Ryan Baptist Church in the Detroit, Michigan area, where Brother Hafford Overbey was pastor.

On the Sundays we do not have engagements we are attending the Chapel Baptist Church where the pastor is Christopher Luppino.  Last evening they had the final service of their VBS.  It was a very enjoyable and spiritual service with emphasis on the value of the home.

CRUISE WITH FAMILY – Thanks to the planning and dedication of our son, David, and his wife, Pennie, we enjoyed a four-day cruise from Miami to Mexico and return.  The time we spent with Paul, Wanda, David, Pennie, Kathy, Willa, (Wanda’s mother), and Lucas (Michelle Hatcher’s son), was great.  A rare treat!  Each day I had the opportunity to tell persons about The Three Crosses and how Jesus saves.  Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.

In the Precious Name of Jesus,
John and Alta Hatcher
