USA – Welcome home to Pr. Joe & Nellie Miller , November 28, 2018
Fond memories of May 2017, when Pr. Joe & Nellie Miller renewed their wedding vows with six other couples at Lyman Baptist Church. Joe had been pastoring with the Assembly of God for 47 years and they were preparing for their 50th wedding anniversary on that upcoming August 4th. A year ago, Joe & Nellie responded to the call of God and left the church family they had been pastoring, Sedro Woolley Community Church, and relocated to shepherd two small church families in eastern Washington, one on the Colville Indian Reservation and the other on the Spokane Indian Reservation. That season is now over for them and they will be loading the moving van on Dec 17th and moving back to Skagit Valley on Dec 18th and are in need of our prayers and support. They will tentatively be staying with George and Linda Henson, unless or until they can find other accommodations. Please pray for them as they enter this new season of their lives. We are blessed to have this faithful shepherd and his family coming back to the Skagit Valley to continue their ministry.
1) Pray that the seeds of faith they have planted in this last year will continue to grow and all the believers , including other pastors and leaders, will continue to be encouraged by Joe & Nellie’s teaching, example and encouragement.
2) Pray that they will have the support and help they need to pack up all their belongings and have adequate closure for any other issues that need to be completed before they leave.
3) Pray for a storage place for their belongings while they seek the Lord’s provision for a home for themselves and their grandson, Justin.
4) Pray for a home they can afford on their very small fixed income.
5) Pray that Justin will be able to find suitable employment to help out the family. Prior to moving, he worked for Walmart but was unable to resume that on the east side because they were too far away from the nearest store.
They will be at the parsonage the majority of the time as they prepare to leave and can be reached at their home phone: 509-315-2092. Joe’s cell phone is 360-630-1231 although reception if not very good. If you have any questions about possible storage or housing, you can also contact George at 360-421-8811.
