Dear Praying Friends, The last month and a half of ministry has been busy and at times discouraging. In July and August we had two missions teams with us. One was from Pennsylvania. The other was the See the Harvest Team that was organized by our mission board. Both of these groups were a huge blessing and help to our church and we are seeing fruit as a result.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has begun to impose … [Read more...] about January 2021 Update
I just finished reading an article from the Boston Globe about the conservative shift in my community. The author pointed out that Lawrence is an “overwhelmingly Democratic city” and I would agree with that assessment. The author goes on to point out the fact that the percentage of Trump voters went from 15% (2016) to 25% (2020). The author and those she interviewed, attributed this shift toward conservatism to Lawrence being “a city with a solid religious conservative base that has prioritized … [Read more...] about Election 2020: What’s the Problem
