"This is what the Lord says, he who made the earth, the Lord who formed it and established it - the Lord is his name: 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Jeremiah 33:2-3


Happenings at the Lodi FaithLife Center:
God is Good-God is Good, All the Time! Prayers have been answered with the addition of new volunteers to serve at the FLC, higher attendance at the Worship services, and improved physical structures and embellishments at the trailer. The "snowbird" chaplains have returned from Southern places and have agreed to share in the duties of the FLC with renewed vigor and enthusiasm! We have had up to 5 drivers attend the Worship Services on Sundays and we are planning to start up a Bible Study time on Sunday and weekday evenings. Pray that we will have good participation.

Happenings at the Shelby TFC Outpost:
All the Time, God is Good! There is a movement of the Spirit at the Shelby Outpost where the local Shelby Life Church's pastor is
encouraging TLC Global to gather momentum for reaching the truck drivers, warehouse staff, office personnel, and maintenance people to hear God's Word. A TTFC sandwich board sign is used out on the front lawn and calls out to "come in and chat" with the Chaplain. I have had many opportunities to talk with a Central Ohio Industrial Park warehouse manager and he has been requesting a personal prayer for himself and for his family I have offered a prayer for him and his family quite a few times. Another manager desires chaplain care within his own company, to aid himself and his employees. I am anxiously waiting for approval from his management before I leap into this fantastic opportunity - just what I asked God for in this new endeavor. God is expanding my territory!

Happenings at the East Ohio United Methodist Conference:
We were able to put up a display at the East Ohio UM Conference and talk to many people, clergy, and laity. We encouraged participation in volunteering at the TFC, financial support and requested local churches to provide and assemble care packages intended for the drivers. We spoke of and gave thanks to those drivers that provide daily needs to Americans over the past 2+ years during COVID. I am a commissioned Deacon in the United Methodist Church and because of that, was recognized and prayed over for this ministry service beyond the local church.

    their families.
