Greetings from Sisseton!
We are busy unloading our motorhome and packing and getting ready to leave for Nashville again. We're in the process of putting our motorhome at an RV consignment location in Minnesota. It's simply getting to be too much work for Larry to load and unload, hook up and un-hook up, etc.
We have had this motorhome for 11 years and have loved every moment in it. It has served us well as we've travelled from coast to coast. It has been our home away from home for about 8-9 months out of every year, and has been our office "on the road." It's hard to believe that we've been living in busses since 1965!
Larry said the other day, "Honey, this is getting to be too much after 55 years of working on busses to keep them going." So… "It's time!"
The music and sound equipment we have will fit in the back of our Yukon for our events moving forward. It will be interesting to break new ground in Tennessee and the surrounding states, especially when so many are interested in "entertainment" and we are "informers" of the Gospel. Anyway, God is good, and it will all work out!
I never have to worry about Larry with ministry, as he shares Christ with someone every day. When I was in the hospital, one of the nurses, Anna, took care of me for 5 days and on about the fourth day, after Larry had joked and talked with her and just had fun, he asked Anna if he could have 5 minutes of uninterrupted time sometime when she has a break. He told her he had something very important to share with her. She closed my hospital room door, jerked the privacy curtain across, looked at Larry and said, "Let's do it now!" He shared the simple message of the gospel to her and after a few minutes he asked her if she'd like to pray the sinner's prayer and invite Jesus in to her hart and she replied, "Oh yes, I really do." As he prayed the tears came down. Out the door she went, and 20 minutes later she came in the room, threw the privacy curtain back and triumphantly proclaimed with a smile, "I'm free! I'm free! Thank you."
A couple of days ago, Larry was talking to a business person on the phone, and it got to be a lengthy call, but he made a connection with this person and 45 minutes after a few jokes and connecting, he asked if he could share something very important that would only take about 5 minutes. She readily agreed and Larry shared the simple gospel and asked if they'd be willing to pray a simple prayer and ask Christ into her life. She said, "Yes, I have been wondering and thinking about spiritual things for days. For you to get me on this phone with all of the people who work with this company, it had to be God to know what I needed today." After she prayed, she just said, "Thank you, thank you, thank you…I really needed that." So, ministry goes on. Praise the Lord!
We had a great rally in Willmar, Minnesota on September 13. There were so many friends and former partners that came out. It was like a homecoming week!
It was thrilling to see what God did and afterwards we met with about 20 of our former employees at a Perkins and shared stories of when we were all on the road together. What a fun time!
Thanks Bruce and Polly for bringing us into Willmar A/G Campus Theatre for a wonderful evening of fellowship and ministry.
Larry and Gloria,
Thank you for the great night in Willmar! So many wonderful songs, soul winning preaching, and hilarious fellowship with lots of people that helped make the Lundstrom Ministry possible for decades was like a taste of heaven.
God bless you!

A week ago Sunday, we held a "Movin' On" rally in our home church in Sisseton, South Dakota. What a great time we had of music, ministry, humor, telling stories and touching lives. We had friends from North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Las Vegas, which made it so very special.
Thanks Marne for being our office manager for 20 years.
We are blessed with wonderful office staff so we can continue on!
We are heading back to Nashville for doctor appointments – we appreciate your continued prayers as we are still struggling immensely with the complications of the heart ablation. We are believing God for a miracle touch.
Thanks again – we love all of you!
