Due to very expensive repairs that were needed on the 1991 motorhome that we were using as our transportation, we found it necessary to replace the vehicle.  It became obvious after a couple of estimates that the cost to repair and maintain would be more than the worth of the vehicle.
 
God is good and we know that he will provide the needed finances to satisfy the loan on the 2006 Ford Sherrod conversion van that we have just taken possession of.
 
Please keep us in your prayers as we continue the ministry that God has blessed us with.

Chosen for the HEAVENLY choir on 05-12-10
 
Ron was a great friend of KSQ.  He and Julie sang together as part of The Masters for four years and then owned their own southern gospel group for a couple of years.  Ron always had a song to sing, and loved the Lord very much.  He will be missed very much by all who knew and loved him.
