Dear Christian Friends,
We are excited to report to you about the Lord’s blessings in our life and ministry. The Lord is doing great things here in Minnesota as we seek to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God has provided us with traveling safety, food, better health, and souls saved. We are thankful for Matt’s decision to receive Jesus Christ as his Savior during visitation and for the good response in the services among God’s people at Legacy Baptist Church in Buffalo, Minnesota.
As we seek to serve, we hope to see many more trust the Lord as Savior. It is our hope and prayer that God will give us more of an evangelistic opportunity that we have had in the past. Please pray that we will see a great harvest of souls. Thanks!
We could never thank you enough for your prayers and financial support. Debbie is doing a little better now. As you might know, she was taken to the ER several weeks ago. We noticed that our trip to the ER didn’t happen until after: we got insurance, she saw her primary doctor...within a week actually.
We believe that the trip to the ER was for the benefit of getting many of the tests and prognosis did quicker than what it would have taken us to do through waiting for the referrals and doctor appointments to get these results. It has saved at least 6 months of doctor’s visits to clear Deb’s heart and lungs as the problem. Now the primary doctor can better focus on trying to narrow the problem down.
Debbie is able to drive again, fix her own meals and take care of herself again. We believe that God has a plan...We just need to have faith, be patient, listen, and obey.
What is the problem with Deb’s health? She has been struggling with pain throughout her whole body as well as dealing with bad headaches and migraines. She also has some breathing issues and stomach problems. Basically, she is sick all over. Her blood pressure is up and down throughout the day. She has seen a few specialists, but has a few more to see and currently we are still waiting on test results from several tests. It is going to take a few months or so to try to narrow the main problem down; but we are hopeful that the Lord will guide us along the right path. Again, thank you for your prayers and support.

By the way, the meetings are going well, and we look forward to the rest of the year. Please pray for souls to be saved and for God’s people to be encouraged in their walk with the LORD! Also, pray for additional meetings for this year and next. Thanks!
“I wondered how your ministry would be received by the “new faces” here, and I can happily and joyfully say that you left a mark on all of our folks. I told you personally, that the messages were right on point for the needs of our folks. We are already looking forward to next year’s meeting. We love you Brother.”
“Thank you so much for not only dynamically preaching God’s Word, but also for: calling with me during the day, helping out with the food pantry ministry on Friday, ministering to our family, sticking around each night and ministering until everyone went home, and even helping to clean up afterwards. You truly have a servant’s heart. We will be praying for your ministry.”
“There is a renewed love for the Lord, His Word, and church in my heart. I haven’t missed one opportunity to attend church, and have studied 15 of your sermons and Matthew through the middle of John since you and I met. Family devotions are a regular and expected part of our morning now and for that I thank God. I am telling you this to let you know that I am trying and would appreciate your continued love and prayers that I not fail. The Lord was already working in my heart and telling me that I needed to make some serious changes. I do not think that I started back at Grace Baptist just weeks before you came to preach by chance. I know that God knew that I needed a revival. I thank God for all that He does for me including bringing you to Grace Baptist Church. I feel sure that you have sung the song “Make Me A Blessing”, Well, Brother Stevens, you are.”
Again, thank you for your continued prayers, genuine concern, and financial support.
May God richly bless you all!
By God’s grace,
Norman and Debbie Stevens
