Dear Family and Friends,
So looking back, we see that some of you may not have heard from us since March, as that is the last time we sent out a Prayer letter, PLEASE FORGIVE US! Others of you have been to see us or we have dropped by, or we have chatted by phone or email. We love to know how all of you are doing, so keep it up!
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Peter has been working on maintenance at HDQTS all this year, and has had some help with it. Thanks to Bill N. for coming and helping out on the Tribal Trails building roof, also thanks to Gerald C. for helping with the garden sheds that have been taking shape! The flooring got laid in the print shop office and kitchen with help from Dave & Dorlene. The trailer home addition had some work done on it but still needs to be finished. The turf got laid by the trailer with help from staff. If you still think that you would like to take some time this fall for a day or more to help, just give us a shout and Peter will set it up.
Diane has been working on new programs for the fall and winter. Tribal Trails is now on 3 new stations! Praise the Lord that His message is getting out to those that need it. Continue to pray for those that watch TT, that they would change their lives and want to live for our Lord and King. Continue to pray also for the change to producing the program in High Definition. Purchasing equipment is a big decision and wisdom is much desired in this area.
August took us to Conference at the Pinawa Wilderness Edge Retreat Centre, MB. Enduragement was the theme and we were encouraged with the messages and fellowship of other missionaries.
There is some training in September that the mission would like us to take at Lac La Biche, AB, so we will be going away again for another week for that.
We praise the Lord for the way he is supplying our needs. Although Peter didn't want to work this year at an “outside job” to help supplement our financial support - he has had to off and on. He has been able to work less at an “outside job” and that is great! We praise the Lord for the odd jobs that have come up.
We had a wonderful surprise this past June when all of our children and their spouses (and our youngest son's girlfriend) and grandchildren got together for Diane's 50th B-day! The family doesn't often pull something on Diane, but this one they did, and did it well, might I say! Even Peter was surprised as they kept some things from him too. We had a wonderful few days together and lots of pictures and memories to last a lifetime!
Peter had his oldest brother Richard go to be with the Lord this year! He will be missed! But thankful that he is out of pain and can run and jump for joy now!
After conference in Aug. we spent two weeks with Jason & Becky, Nolan and Makenna. Becky had surgery and so we stayed longer to help out. The first week Peter spent at Turtle Mt. Bible Camp as maintenance help.
As you can see above maintenance was enjoyed!
Crabapple picking with Nolan!
God Bless you,
Peter and Diane Salmond
