Marco and Lauretta Hannel Prayer Letter: A Full Schedule and an Answer to Prayer!A Full Schedule


After dealing with much sickness through April, God has given us many meetings in May! We had a wonderful time with Pastor Berry and his wife at Liberty Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, to start the month. I helped solve an air-bag issue on a bus there, and Lauretta enjoyed playing the piano and giving a testimony. The fellowship with Pastor Berry was very encouraging.

Next, we helped Valley View Baptist Church by taking their bus to the shop at Hyles-Anderson College to fix a few leaf springs. While we were there, God led us to visit Iglesia Bautista Fundamental in East Chicago. What an enthusiastic group of people with a heart to serve! We felt like honored guests in their growing ministry! I was able to help diagnose a problem with one of their buses and teach a teen Sunday school class. In the coming weeks, we will be in Arkansas and North Carolina again. Please pray for our safety.

Kids’ Rally

God blessed the Kids’ Rally in Olney, Illinois, at Sugar Creek Blain Church. We saw 6 decisions made and over 25 children come and be a part of the “Anchored in Christ” Rally. God gave us a great visit in their Sunday morning service as well.

Our Bus

After three years of praying about getting a bus to convert into an RV for our family, God led the people of Liberty Baptist to give us a bus. We are incredibly grateful and thrilled to use it for this ministry God has given us. Pray that we will be able to build it out soon to travel in.

Prayer Requests

• Salvation of our children
• Camp Meeting in Arkansas
• Wisdom in the building of our bus home
• More supporting churches
• Warren Storm’s open-heart bypass surgery on June 4

Keep the Buses Going,
