November 6, 2008
October went by rather quickly for Anita and me. I started the month off preaching in a Missions Conference in Michigan. I spoke five times during the twenty-third annual mission’s conference hosted jointly by the Lake Road Baptist Church of Clio and the Grace Baptist Church of Holly. Chapel Hill Baptist Church of Nicholasville, Kentucky invited me for their services on the Sunday the 12th. The 26th Anita was able to go with me to Ohio and visit the Grace Baptist Church of Fairborn and the Morning Star Baptist Church of Westchester. We thank all of these churches for their gracious hospitality manifested to us.
Anita had another birthday on the 13th and then started her radiation treatments on the 20th. She now has a radiation treatment every Monday through Friday for six weeks. As I write this letter she has completed two and half weeks and has three and half more to go. She seems to be coping with these treatments very well. Her sense of humor has not diminished! The main side effects of the radiation are fatigue and skin irritation in the radiated area. The Lord willing we should be done with the radiation around the end of November. We thank all of you for your continued prayers, letters and cards.
Most of the workers from Peru keep in touch each month and each of them has given a good report. We are still trying to help the new work in Oxapampa with funds to purchase some property where they can build a permanent meeting house. Of the $9000.00 needed we have received $1500.00, leaving us a balance of $7500.00 still to fund. Brother Carlos Gonzales is the pastor of this new work and is doing an outstanding job. If any of you would like to help with this project please mark your donations as Stanton-Oxapampa project. May God bless you for your love and concern for the lost souls of Peru. Until next month.
In HIM by HIS grace,
Sheridan and Anita Stanton
