This month, our church began supporting two British Missionaries: Evan Williams (Honduras) and Hannah Neilly (Overseas missionary helping with church-planting, evangelism, and discipleship). Hannah is a lady from Northern Ireland that we have helped to train for missions. She is currently raising her support in the UK but will also be available for meetings in the US (June & July 2016). To find out more about her, book a meeting, or support her, go to www.hannahneilly.co.uk or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just over a month ago, we received keys to our new house, which began the typical whirlwind of packing, moving, painting, setting up furniture, etc. We are very thankful that all of that is behind us now. God blessed us with a nice, comfortable home half a mile from the church. We are excited about using our home to reach out to the people in our community. Sunday night, we had a church fellowship at our house. It was great to fellowship together and enjoy discussing what God is doing in our lives.
Last Thursday, a young man named Bradley professed faith in Christ! He attended a youth meeting in the home of one of the families that attends the church. They asked me to bring a Bible message and a young man named Danny from Crossroads Baptist Church in Bromley to share his testimony of salvation. After Danny’s testimony, Bradley had some questions and later that night He believed on Christ for salvation! He said that God had been dealing with him since he attended a BBQ at our church last summer.
Thank you so much for praying for the building fund for Northwest Baptist Church. So far, God has provided $31,469 of our $75,000 goal. Please continue to pray about this exciting opportunity. I will be travelling over to Northern Ireland next week for a few days to start looking at potential buildings with Pastor James. We had hoped to have all the money by the end of last month, but we will continue to pray and trust God to provide the remaining funds soon. If you would like to give, you can send your check to our support address below and mark your donation: “Snode-NWBC Building.”
