Saviour of All Fellowship
September 2005

Dear Friends in Faith,
     With heartfelt thanksgiving to the living God, Who is the Saviour of all mankind, we are sending out this newsletter once again. We are experiencing some changes in our situation here, but our pleasure and desire to speak of these things related to the glory of God and His purpose is unchanged.
     The meetings in Waterloo, Ontario on August 12-14 were well attended with timely reminders of God’s grace and purpose in Christ Jesus. We are now anticipating the Fellowship on September 17 from 11:00 to 4:00 at the home of Lou and Diane Klinger, 10770 Plains Hwy., Eaton Rapids MI 48827 (phone: 517-663-1560).
     Here at the beginning of this month, Tony is moving into a mobile home in town, and Dean is moving much of his library and other office items into his home. Yet we will continue for awhile with a partial operation here at the farmhouse where we have been now for over 20 years. However, when writing to us, it is probably best to add P.O. Box 314, as shown above, to our mailing address.
     It seems to be a good time for us to review our address list. We want to continue sending the letters out about 6 times a year but would appreciate a note from our readers letting us know if they would like to continue receiving it and verifying their addresses.
     We have lost two very close friends this summer. Leila Watts, of Kitchener, Ontario, was put to repose on June 19 at age 80. She was one, like Philemon, whose fellowship of faith became operative in her life with joy and expectation. Despite severe pain and suffering through the past few years she continued to hold fast to an appreciation of God’s grace that reached back to her early years. We join her husband, Harry, and all her family and friends, in sorrow for this loss, and in thanksgiving to God for the many good things He channeled to us through her life.
     Many of our readers will remember Clint Tenniswood, who, along with his late wife, Marion, often hosted one of our monthly Fellowships at their farm near Peck, Michigan. He was a brother of unusual good sense and genuine cheer, who rejoiced in the love and righteousness of God manifested in Christ’s death for all humanity. We are sorry to have to report his death in late August at the age of 91, but we look forward to the realization of our happy expectation along with him.
     We have heard from several friends in the areas devastated by hurricane Katrina and are thankful to know they were mostly spared from severe losses. Tony had already scheduled a visit with a group of believers near Mobile, Alabama, the second week of this month, and will be able to give a more personal report in our next newsletter.
     In his letter to the Romans Paul spoke not only about the fact that all are sinners, or “missers,” (1:18-3:20,23), but of the fact that “the entire creation is groaning and travailing together” (8:22). In both cases, he is not speaking in a tone of hopelessness, or even rebuke, as though we could make things otherwise, but to direct attention to what God has done and is doing about it. He spares not His Son but gives Him up for us all (8:32). That is what brings an end to sin and death and to the entire situation of corruption and travail which afflicts His creation.

Yours in God’s grace and peace,
Dean Hough and Tony Nungesser
