Dear Praying Friends,
The last month of ministry has been very exciting. Several weeks ago I had the privilege to meet someone through Facebook marketplace. I met him at the church and he told me that he had been reading his Bible and had some questions. We met on a Monday evening and after talking for about an hour, Will trusted Christ as his Savior. That Wednesday Will brought a friend to church and asked me to talk share the gospel with his friend as well. Will’s friend listened but has not yet trusted Christ. Please pray for this man to trust Christ soon and for Will to grow in his walk with the Lord.
This month we had two local churches bring groups to help us pass out literature in our area. In two days we were able to distribute nearly 3,000 pieces of literature. From their efforts we had a Spanish speaking lady reach out to us. She had been looking for a Baptist church. I connected her with a Spanish speaking man in our church and she has attended two Sunday services with her children. We had been praying the Lord would allow us to begin offering services translated in Spanish. Oscar, a faithful man in our church, has been doing a wonderful job translating. We are expecting other Spanish speaking visitors soon. Please pray that the Lord would give me and Oscar wisdom as we minister to these families. Also pray that the Lord would bring another bi-lingual believer who could help Oscar translate. We would love to work out some sort of rotation between two or more translators.
Our church was also able to hand out over 600 invitations to church over July 4th weekend at two local fireworks displays. We were able to meet a lot of people and are praying that the Lord would bring fruit from this effort.
At the end of this month and the beginning of August we will have two groups coming from out of state to assist us in outreach. One of these groups is coming from Pennsylvania. The other group will be coming from all over the US with our mission board for the See the Harvest Trip. We are praying that the Lord would work in hearts and call some of these young people to serve Him in the Boston area.
Lindsey and the kids are doing well. Lindsey started school this week with Gabe and Ellie. Lindsey really enjoys the opportunity to homeschool our kids and so far the kids are enjoying it as well. Ellie has recently been asking questions about salvation, please pray for wisdom for Lindsey and I as we answer her many questions, and please pray for the future salvation of Ellie, Lucy, and Violet.
Please continue to pray for the many contacts that the Lord has given us. There are about a dozen people that we have developed relationships with who are still unsaved. Please join us in praying for their salvation.
