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 through their prayers and are embarrassed that we have missed this. Please accept our apologies. We will post both April’s and June’s 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 April 2018 prayer letter:
Thank you so much for your prayers and support! We have stayed very busy with mission conferences and meeting these last two months. We had our first and probably only meeting of our deputation in Florida and we loved getting to experience some warm weather! We have been very encouraged by the churches that we have been in, and we are excited to be at 82%!
This puts us on track to finish up deputation at the end of May, while still fulfilling obligations we’ve already made to be at meetings in the fall.
In April, we have several individual meetings, as well as 2 mission conferences. In May we have several individual meetings and one mission conference. Once we are done traveling, we will begin working with the church here. Nick will be heavily involved in outreach in the downtown area of Haverhill, teaching weekly Sunday School classes, preaching 3 times per week in church and nursing home services. He will also be involved with the Vacation Bible School and Jr. Day Camp ministries. Pastor DiGiacomo will also allow Nick to be involved with counseling, pastoral visits, and discipleship. Nick also hopes to make it down to the area we will be church planting in on a weekly basis, to get to know the area and start forming relationships, as well as to keep an idea of what our options are for a building to meet in, as well as housing for when we move down there.
Gabe turned 3 at the end of February and had a really great birthday. Ellie is crawling now and pulling up on everything, and we think it won’t be long now until she is walking!
We would appreciate your continued prayers that the Lord would bring a family to come and assist in our church planting efforts. Please pray as well for safety as we travel. We have had some minor vehicle issues lately and would appreciate you praying that we would not have any more issues with our vehicle.
We are so thankful for how God has provided in so may ways during our deputation and cannot wait t get busy in ministry in Boston! Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
