Dear Supporters and Praying Friends,
“To God be the glory, great things He hath done…” This has been our anthem for a long time, but especially in the last few weeks. God has certainly shown Himself “strong on our behalf”! We invite you to REJOICE WITH US!
I would like to begin by thanking each and every person who has prayed for our family and church congregation. We have FELT your prayers! I am very thankful for the kind emails, notes of encouragement, cards and letters that have been sent in the last several weeks. We even received a handmade card from a church in North Carolina, whom I have never corresponded with before, who gave a little offering for Easter to our family. WOW! Our family does not take these encouragements for granted! THANK YOU!
In March we saw 4 professions of faith! Hallelujah! I had the awesome privilege of leading a young woman to the Lord who had visited our church at the request of one of our New Converts. It is absolutely spectacular to see the excitement this has caused in the life of this dear servant of the Lord. The other three were teenagers who went to an ALL-NIGHT Teen Outing. God really worked in hearts that evening! One of our Youth Leaders was especially touched and gave testimony to the same in our 1st Quarter Business Meeting. Not only have we seen many souls get saved, but we have others who are under strong conviction. We are thankful for this.
If you have been following our prayer letters, then you will know that we have been under a great deal of strain about the need of adequate facilities of our own. I am glad to announce that GOD IS WORKING ALL OF THIS OUT!!! HALLELUJAH! As I write this letter, our church has passed the first of two hurdles concerning a conditional use permit for a store front facility here in Blair. This 2,300 sq.ft. space will meet our needs for now. God opened this opportunity up in a way only God can do! More info can be found on our church website (greatcommissionbaptist.org) concerning this facility. This is a HUGE answer to our prayers! Praise the LORD!
As we conclude this letter, I want you to know that I can go on and on about the many things that our Lord has done in the last two months. I just do not have the space in a letter such as this to put everything down. I would love to share it with you, so please give me call. Our family is doing well. We have officially completed our 2013-2014 school year! My wife is very happy!!! May Christ continue to bless you and your family!
