Dear Pastors & Praying Friends,
We drove 5500 miles last month. The Lord blessed with meetings at thirteen different churches in the states of TN, KY, OH, IL, and WV. One of the new churches we visited voted to take us on for support which puts us at 83%!
We praise the Lord for how the work at Northwest Baptist Church in Derry, Northern Ireland is continuing on in our absence. I am so thankful for how God is using Sam Quinn and James Wilson. Both men have really stepped up and have done a great job leading the church. Recently the church had a special outreach for St. Patrick’s Day where they gave out gospel literature and tea/coffee on the street.
The church was finally able to get an official lease for the church building. This lease secures their current building until October 2015. They are working on getting a better sign and outreach plans for the year. Almost every week, the church has visitors. This is partly due to the fact that more people are visiting the city because it is the UK City of Culture for 2013. All year, there will special activities and events in the city that attract visitors.
Please pray for me as I prepare to take a trip to Northern Ireland and London on May 13-24. I will be visiting the church in Derry for a few days as well as surveying the city of London. We are praying for God to open doors for us and guide us to the area in the city where He wants us to begin. There are 32 boroughs in the city with populations ranging from 150,000 to 350,000 each.
I recently learned that London is home to the largest mosque in western Europe, the largest Hindu temple in Europe, the largest Sikh temple in the world outside India, and the largest synagogue membership of any single Orthodox synagogue in the whole of Europe. We are excited about reaching many people for Christ in this strategic city.
Thank you for your continued prayers. We are exciting about returning to the field on July 3rd.
– Travis & Teri Snode
