Dear Ministry Partners,   I am grateful! Last fall, I heard a song that struck my heart. The theme was gratitude, thanking God for the roof over one’s head, the food on the table, and the shoes on the feet. 1 Thess. 5:16-18 “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” I am grateful for the power and presence of God that changes lives. It is a privilege to be present when the Holy Spirit draws another to salvation and watch the tears roll down her cheeks as she accepts Christ as Savior. I am grateful to God for the wisdom that He has given to the medical community to operate on a heart through eight tiny incisions on the edge of my chest in what is called the Maze Procedure. I am grateful for the six days my heart was in rhythm and there is yet more they can do to fix it. I am grateful for the medical staff that attended me for the four days I was on a ventilator. I am grateful for the recovery that I have experienced. I am grateful for the prayer warriors that are holding me up before the Throne so that I can get back to preaching. There is a long recovery yet. I am grateful for my loving family that is doing everything they can to shepherd me through this experience. I am grateful for community and neighbors that watch out for each other. I am grateful for supporters that, through prayer and finances, allow the ministry of Have Bible Will Travel to continue and they will share reward in the nurse’s salvation.   Dave Hamilton Have Bible Will Travel
