2 Years of the church
The 2nd Anniversary of the church is coming up here in just a few weeks, and I am thankful for what the Lord has done to grow both me and His church!
Pray for our anniversary service coming up in a few weeks and the special things we have planned for that. They have prepared a skit and other ways to give testimony to what the Lord has done
“A’s” First Full sermon
The first opportunity for “A” to preach his first full length Sunday sermon will be this coming week and I know the Lord will use him greatly. Be praying for him as he prepares and delivers it. I am excited for them to see someone from the church step up like this, and display in another way that this is not just a foreign religion.
Another step we are taking as we go into our third year is the addition of more classes and Bible study groups. I will be start a class for new people. We have spent a lot of time establishing a strong foundation of teaching for people that have been coming up to this point, but we are going to split up so that we can have a class for newer people to get up to speed on the basic doctrine and direction of the church.
Additionally, we are starting another class that A will reach that will go a little deeper into some big important doctrines–about one doctrine per quarter.
Misc. – Interns, conferences, outreaches
We were also blessed to have a few missions interns come through to visit this past month as well. Nate Francis from our home church came through and Aiden came the following week. Pray for both of them as they are in these important preparation steps.
We finished another few weeks of teaching English as well and were able to meet and witness to several new people and have seen several new ones that are now attending church, so we praise the Lord for that.
We also have a regional meeting of our mission board coming up that we are attending. Pray the Lord would work and give direction as we learn and grow together in the work of missions.
