God has been really blessing over the last couple weeks. We continue to have first-time visitors and visitors that are returning, so we are excited that the Lord is growing the church.
Also, on this past Sunday, we had a man named James join the church. James has been coming since January, and it was exciting to see him take this step of faith.
Teri and Grant have been quite sick, but thankfully they is doing much better as of last night. The weather here wreaks havock with people’s sinuses, so this time of year it can be quite annoying. Grant actually had to spend Monday night in the hospital due to a serious lung infection.
This past Thursday, we started our Bible institute, and the Lord blessed with eleven people coming out for the classes. The institute takes place from 6:30-9:30 PM, and we are teaching “Bible Doctrines,” “Baptist Distinctives,” and “Methods of Bible Study.” Tonight, is our second class of the Institute, and we are excited about even more students planning to come out.
God has opened a door to reach out to the young people at our local university. We are helping a group called the Christian Union at Magee University to reach out to the students. On Monday night, Sam and James helped give out tea and coffee and witness to the students. We are also having the leaders present their ministry to our church on Sunday, 9 October.
Please pray about a Creation meeting that we are helping to host on Tuesday, 4 October. We have a guest preacher from Creation Ministries International coming to talk about creation science, the Biblical account of creation, and some common scientific objections to the Christian faith. We are working in conjunction with some other churches in our city, and we are expecting about 100 people to come out to the meeting.
Below are a few praises and prayer requests. Thank you so much for all you do.
