Dear Christian Friends,

Debbie and I hope this Ministry Newsletter finds you well and rejoicing in God’s goodness.

It is a blessing to be recipients of your giving to God’s work to reach the lost and help God’s people make a decision to live for Him.

Debbie and I have been blessed and our needs are being met through dear folks like you for which we thank the LORD!

We are ever thankful for God’s love, mercy and great grace. We are happy to report that the meetings have gone well for us in the Northwest and Canada this year. In the various churches, several have made professions of faith in Christ Jesus. As well as, God’s people making life-changing decisions to have a closer walk with the LORD!

On June 13, 2017, I received a call from Pastor Ron Bissonnett at First Baptist Church in Fossil, Oregon. He was excited to let us know that the Revival Meetings had brought forth fruit. The church is growing, and he was happy to let us know. Praise His Name!

Simply saying this, the work being done would not be possible without the generous support of God’s people. We would like to thank all you that have supported us in the past and will continue to support us in the future.

Therefore, please continue to pray for our meetings. We ask that you pray that God work in the hearts of His people during the meetings and that these people make decisions. Also, pray for souls to be saved.

I am well, and Debbie is still struggling for strength for each day. Your continued prayers for us would be greatly appreciated.

We were a blessing to Pastor Roland and Vera Mitchum in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Because of the meetings they now have a pianist for the Wednesday night services. Praise the LORD! God’s people have become very stable and trust God to continue to work through the preaching that was accomplished during the meetings.  

A boy of five-years-old received the Lord as His own personal Savior at one of the meetings in Vale, Oregon. His daddy came to me after the service and asked me to deal with his son in his need of salvation. Another, praise the Lord!

Debbie has made some progress over the last few weeks. She felt well enough to go to a Wednesday night Bible study on September 27, 2017. For which we praise GOD! She still struggles with headaches and fatigue.

It has been nine years since her gallbladder surgery where the surgeon, by accident, cut Deb’s aorta. The doctors have made it clear to us that she may never completely recover from it. Debbie and I have always believed God would do something to help in response to our prayers. It is not if God is going to do something for her. It is just a matter of when He is going to do something for her in response to our asking Him to do so.

Please note! We see a difference in her being able to get out and do more. We would ask that you continue to keep her in your daily prayers.

On Sunday, July 23, 2017, our all-day Sunday meeting went well with Pastor Barry Davis at Vaughn Street Bible Church in Gibsonton, Florida. I had a wonderful time with God’s people. They were happy to have me there. When the Word of God was preached, it challenged them.

The meetings went well with Pastor Darrell Hansen at Oregon Trail Baptist Church; Pastor Roy Delia at New Hope Baptist Church; and Brother Kerry Whiting at Lighthouse Baptist Church. All three churches went together to help with the finances because all three of these churches are small in numbers. We had good decisions and several professions of faith in Christ.

We had a Wednesday night meeting at Heritage Baptist Church with Pastor Scott Peace in Tenino, Oregon. The meeting was well-attended and it was a time of spiritual growth.

Our schedule for 2018 is filling up fast. So, please look over our schedule on the back of this newsletter and get in touch with us, as soon as possible, if you are interested in having us in for a meeting next year. We are hopeful that Debbie, through our prayers, be able to travel with me full-time soon! Visit our website for our updated schedule for 2018.

Again, we would like to say thank you for your love, much prayers and financial support. It is very much appreciated. We love you, and we count it a privilege to serve the Lord together. It is our prayer that God will continue to use all of us mightily for His Glory!

His servants,

Norman and Debbie Stevens
