Dear Praying Friend,

In our last update we had a coloring contest for our future headers. The 38 entries we received are so much fun! Now we need your help to choose the winners! You can see all the entries and vote for a winner here.

This month has certainly been exciting for us and there's lots to share in this update. Here are four major blessings we're rejoicing in:

 
1) Ordination—On June 23rd I was officially ordained to the gospel ministry. God gave grace during the questioning. Everything was both a tremendous encouragement to us and a great challenge that we would remain faithful to the Lord our whole lives.
 
2) Support Increase—God has continued to increase our support, bringing us to 91%. In December we committed to leave this Fall for furlough replacement. Since then, He increased our support by 65% in 6 months. We are praying for the remaining 9% so that we won't need to return to finish deputation. God is good and we praise Him!
 
3) Last Major Trip of Deputation
We are excited about meetings in Maine, New Hampshire, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Canada in the next two months. We're most excited that this is our last big trip! Please pray for safety and that God will provide the remainder of our support during this time.
 
4) Safe Birth of Zachary Jason Arnold—The greatest blessing of these months has been the healthy delivery of our little son, Zachary Jason Arnold. We're amazed at the privilege of shepherding this little life. As we begin traveling again, God has already given everyone grace and good health.
 
There are simply too many blessings to share this month, and we are overwhelmed at the Lord's goodness. When He saved us from our sin and from hell, that would be more than enough to praise Him for all eternity. But when He constantly piles on these other great blessings as well, how can we not continually praise Him?
 
Thank you so much for your support and prayers.

Joel, Sarah, Jeremy, and Zachary Arnold
