We need a miracle! We are asking God to provide over $90k over the next 5 months! The reason is to purchase a church building for Northwest Baptist Church in Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland.
Over ten years ago, God led us to plant a church there. At that time, there were only two Baptist churches for over 100,000 people! On the West Bank of the River Foyle, the area where the church is, there are no other Baptist churches for around 75,000 people!
The city is where the modern-day “Troubles” started in Northern Ireland. Despite all the difficulties over the years, the city remains a growing, exciting, culturally rich, and strategic city. There are over 300,000 people in the immediate regions around Derry, and all of those are influenced in one or the other by what happens in the city.
Derry need gospel preaching churches that will remain there for generations. Planting a church there has felt like chiseling granite at times, but through it all God has proved that “nothing is too hard” for Him. God continues to work in lives and to bring people to Himself through the preaching of the gospel.
Though we have moved to London, the work remained in the capable hands of Pastor James Wilson, a local man from Co. Donegal. We continue to work closely with the church, and we are doing all in our power to help them take this final step toward becoming full self-supporting and indigenous.
God has already provided over $58,000 for the building project, and we are asking God to provide the rest before the end of 2017. All of the money that has already been raised has come from churches and individuals who gave as God prospered them. The largest single gift was $5000, so we are asking you to pray about doing something to help out with this project.
Thanks again to those who have already given. Thank you for praying. And thank you for caring about the spreading of the gospel through church planting around the world.
