Dear Pastors & Praying Friends,
The highlight of last month was the licensing and installation service for James Wilson on August 11. The church building was full and several guests were with us. It was a blessing to have Pastor Sam Quinn, Pastor Lawrence Smyth, and Pastor Stephen Kennedy there to take part in the service.
James took up his position as pastor on this past Sunday morning, September 1. Please pray for him as he serves and pastors in a place that is quite resistant to the gospel. Also, please pray for him as he balances ministry with working a part-time secular job as well. Pray that the church will grow so that he can be fully supported as soon as possible.
On August 12, we packed our car full and travelled to London. The Lord gave us a good trip and allowed us to quickly find a nice home in the Borough of Greenwich. On August 20, we were able to move in and begin getting things set up.
The last weekend of August, I travelled back to Northern Ireland to be at Northwest Baptist for Sam Quinn’s last Sunday and a special Appreciation Service for him. Sam served with us for three years and was such a blessing. He definitely earned the respect and love of the folks in Derry. Please be in prayer for him as he follows God’s direction for His future.
After a few days in Northern Ireland, I flew to Sunderland, in northern England, to help my friend Alan Campbell with Reach, a special week of outreach and training for young people. It was a blessing to help train the young people, participate with them in street evangelism, and then preach each night on the great commission. On the final night, we had an evangelistic service with nine first-time visitors.
The Lord blessed us last month with another new supporting church, Lighthouse Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN. We praise the Lord that we are now at 93% of our needed support.
Thanks to all of you for your faithful prayers and support. We appreciate each of you so much.
