Dear Pastors & Praying Friends,
Thank you for your prayers and support. We are continually amazed at your faithfulness and generosity. It is truly an honor to serve the Lord and represent you here in this part of the world.
God is continuing to work in the ministry in Northern Ireland. Northwest Baptist Church has visitors attend on a regular basis and the folks there are faithfully serving the Lord. Every time I talk with Pastor James Wilson, I am encouraged to hear how the giving has stayed consistent and the folks in the church are stepping up to help out with music, ministry, and outreach. I am looking forward to spending some time with Pastor James next week as we both will be attending a conference for church leaders here in England. Please continue to pray for the ministry there as the winter months can be especially difficult.
We have had another good month here in London learning, preparing, and evangelizing. We have put together survey reports for 6 of the 32 London boroughs: Barking and Dagenham, Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hillingdon, and Islington. You can view the reports on our website here. As we survey the various areas, we are making a note of places for potential church plants. This will be helpful research for the future as we seek to plant many churches across the city.
Recently, we were able to get 10,000 gospel tracts printed called “The Greatest News.” The tracts direct people to an evangelistic website where people can find the gospel, contact us, and sign up for Bible studies. Pray for God to work in hearts and bring forth fruit as we pass out these gospel tracts and witness to people.
During the month of October, I enjoyed preaching for my pastor friend Martin Wickens at Brimpton Baptist Church near Reading. At the end of the month, I also was able to preach for a group of Christians who meet a few miles from where we live in London but currently have no pastor. There is a real need here to disciple and train men to be pastors and church-planters.
Thanks again for all you do. If you would like to sign up for our weekly email updates, please click here to sign up. May God richly bless you all.
