Decision America Tour With Franklin Graham

Hey everyone... If you don't already know, Jim is the California City Captain for the tour. He is busy coordinating over 500 volunteers state wide. If you haven't heard about it yet, go to https://decisionamericatour.com and find out all about it. In brief, Franklin Graham will be speaking on the steps of our State Capitol and leading the Church in prayer for our country. Mark your calendars and come stand with us at noon on March 31st!

Last Thursday evening we held our Volunteer meeting and over 80 people came out from all over the state. Below I am posting a video of the meeting for any volunteers who couldn't make it. However, it does not cover the entire meeting. I had to edit it considerably in order to get it to within the size allowable by this website.

We're still alive and kicking

Wow....How time flies! I can't believe it has been three years since my last posting. Since our Europe trip we have been sicking pretty close to home. At least Jan has :-) I have formed a ministry partnership with my best friend and evangelist, Ken Ramey along with his wife Diane. I am the Executive Director. We are committed to coaching individuals and churches to become expanding churches through conversion growth (ie. to excel in evangelism). This has involved a lot of travel to the states of Oregon and Washington. It has been exciting to see the Lord's hand of blessing. Check us out at www.evangecoach.com.


Jan and I have also gotten more involved in the church Jeff & Faye are members of. They have been very involved and in leadership there for many years. Jan & I now lead a Wednesday night small
group and I just returned from a tri p to Haiti with a team from the church. There is sooo much need in Haiti. But, we saw the Lord's blessing and hand at work there also!

The grandkid's continue to grow like blessed little flowers around us. Keilani just had her 5th birthday last weekend. We are absolutely loving living next door to them. We are so very blessed! The Lord also continues to bless us with good health. Praise God for his great love and mercy.

What a Summer!

Jan and I were away for more than seven weeks this summer. Jan FINALLY retired in June and we also celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in August. Soooo, we decided it was time to take a trip to Europe. Neither one of us had been there before, and I have a brother who lives in Germany that I hadn't seen in about 18 years. We spent a week and a half in Greece, then flew to Rome where we joined a tour group and spent the next 11 days traveling throughout Italy, Switzerland, France, and England. We then flew to Germany where we spent our last two weeks with my brother. As you might guess, it was a trip of a lifetime. We saw and did things that we never ever thought we would do. The following are just a few pictures of some of our highlights:

Grandchild #3

Hi all! Just wanted to introduce you to the newest member of the Quayle family. Jeff and Faye had Meigan Elaine Quayle on Thursday March 27th. She weighed 7lb 3oz and was 21 inches long. Grandma and Grandpa watched Jacob and Keilani while mommy & daddy were at the hospital. On Friday morning we took the kids to the hospital to meet their new sister. It was a fun but hectic time! Everything went well and they came home Friday afternoon. We are just praising the Lord for his grace and goodness. As you can see Meigan is a beautiful baby. Enjoy the pics!

Happy Holidays!

We are so thankful for all God's wonderful blessings this year! We hope the Lord has blessed you as richly as he has us. It has been an incredible year.

Jim got back from Egypt on the 9th of november. But, has spent much of the time since then recovering from exhaustion, jet-lag, and being sick. It was a trip of a lifetime though. Some of the highlights were:

- Seeing the great pyramids of Giza. They are even larger
than they appear in photos.





- Putting on programs, handing out candy and clothes, and
praying for people in two different garbage villages
(Yes, they live amid the garbage).







- Putting on a program and giving gifts to girls in an orphanage. They are isolated in a fifth floor apartment with no place to play.







- Staying in a resort city and snorkeling in the Red Sea.






- Seeing Mt. Sinai and the Monastery (St. Katherines) at it's base.









- Camping overnight in a bedouin camp in the middle of the Sinai wilderness.



- Visiting a ministry and school for Sudanese refugees.




- Attending services at a huge cave church
with beautiful carvings everywhere.




- And, taking a felucca ride
(an Egyptian sailboat) on the Nile.
