It was brought to my attention this week that our last two prayer letters (April 2018, and June 2018) were not posted to our website nor sent by email. I apologize for this and, other than just being busy in ministry here in Haverhill, MA, I am not sure how we missed this. Again we are sorry if you have missed these updates. However, we have sent physical copies of each update to all of the churches that we have been in during our deputation.
If you are a pastor, a church staff member, or you handle the prayer letters for your church and have not received our prayer letter by mail, would you please let us know so that we can be sure to get a regular updated to your church.
We are so thankful for those who support us through their prayers and are embarrassed that we have missed this. Please accept our apologies. We will post both April and June updates to our website so that you can know what has been going on in our ministry over the last few months, if you have missed it.
In the next couple weeks we will be posting another update on what the Lord is doing in our ministry here in Haverhill, MA. In the next couple of months, I (Nick) also hope to do some additional posts about what the Lord taught us over deputation. Thank you again for your continued prayer and support!
Below is our June 2018 update:
We have been very busy over the last couple of months. We have been in several mission conferences as well as Sunday meetings, as well as a family wedding. We are so excited to announce that we are done traveling for full time deputation!
We have been home for about a week now, and Nick has already preached in 3 nursing homes and handled the Sunday and Wednesday night services while Pastor DiGiacomo was away. We are excited to be getting involved with the church here and also to be preparing for the first church plant in Boston.
Nick has begun studying Spanish, and Lindsey plans to start this week as well. We are also looking into the steps we need to take for Lindsey to get certified in TESL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages), which would be another avenue to reach out to the immigrant community in Boston.
Last Saturday, Nick had the opportunity to have several individual meetings with people in a psychiatric hospital who had requested a pastor to meet with them, and at the end of one of those meetings a Catholic lady accepted Christ! She asked Nick, “Could you just give me some hope?” We praise the Lord that now she can look to the “blessed hope and glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ”. Please pray for this lady as she grows in her faith and that Nick would have the opportunity to meet with her again and start some discipleship with her. With her being in a psychiatric facility, it can be difficult to set up meetings. Please pray the Lord would work out the details for this to happen.
We will be traveling down for our mission board’s family fellowship week later this month, and the next week Nick will be taking the teens of the church to camp. Please pray for safety for these trips and that the Lord would work in the teens’ hearts.
Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support!
