Pastors and praying friends,
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our family and ministry. We are so grateful for the many who sacrificially give and pray so that we can minister here in London.
Reach London – This past month the church hosted an event for young adults called Reach. This was a time of training in evangelism, discipleship, and missions where young people were trained in these areas and then put the things they learned into practice out on the streets. On the last night, from a hill overlooking our community, we prayed together for more laborers and fruit from the outreach efforts. I hope you will pray with us for more gospel workers here as there is an incredible need for disciple makers to impact this city.
Easter – We had a wonderful day celebrating the resurrection of Jesus with our church family. It was great to have a couple of visitors come along as well as fruit from the previous week of outreach.
Visitors – We were blessed to have Sherry’s parents visit with us for a couple of weeks. One of the difficulties of overseas missions work is time away from family, so it was a real treat for us and the kids to have that time together. We are looking forward to our missionary friends from Burkina Faso being at the church in a couple of weeks to speak at our missions weekend. We are also gearing up for a couple of church groups that we will have with us over the next few months. If you would like to arrange a trip over, please let us know.
Northwest Baptist Church – Last month I was able to make a trip over to Derry/Londonderry to visit Northwest Baptist and pastor James Wilson. This is the church that our co-laborers Travis and Teri Snode planted several years ago. They are now in the renovation process of their new property and we were able to help with some of the planning. Lord willing, I will be back in July to speak at the church in the new building. Please keep them in your prayers.
Lastly, we ask that you continue to pray for local men and women to be trained for ministry here. There is a real shortage of young people that are going into ministry full time. To see more churches planted/revitalised, we will need many more men trained. Please pray with us!
