God is still working. Praise the Lord for all that He has done since our last letter! This spring semester at Hyles-Anderson College is going extremely well, as I am teaching missions courses, Bible courses, and a counseling course.
This time of the year, God has helped me and given me wisdom as I have helped several FBMI missionaries with their financial questions, some counseling questions, some relationship questions, some discipleship questions, and some church-growth questions. Also, two of the missionaries I serve, who are heading to the continent of Africa, have had their final Exit Interviews. What a joy it is to see one of them already on the field and the other waiting for his visa to be approved!
Even though the snow and the temperatures have fallen regularly in recent weeks, God has opened many doors to share the Gospel, and we have knocked on scores of homes. This past week I was able to give Michael the Gospel, and last week I was able to give Jeff and Martin the Gospel. The three eagerly listened but have not yet put their faith in Christ. Please pray that they soon will trust Jesus as their Saviour. On the other hand, Jose (father of 3), Chivangi (a teen), Jeremiah (a teen), and AJ (father of 2) all trusted Christ as Saviour while making visits.
On a phone call at the end of last year, I had the privilege to win a grandfather (Dan) to Christ. He went Home to be with Jesus just a few days afterward. Also, I got to lead a homeless man to Christ during the invitation at church and got to see another man get baptized. At the current time, I am discipling one man and hope to continue with others who have started but have not continued.
Even though our New Grace Adult Bible Class is still relatively small, God has brought many visitors since the beginning of the year, and we are trying to follow up on them. God has given me opportunities in the past couple of months to preach at Hammond Baptist Junior High, City Baptist High School, Hyles-Anderson College, and also the Spanish Bible Institute. God has used the Local Outreach Ministry for several college students to lead people to Christ in the Hammond area, and we have already had several visitors come to church from that ministry. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and your financial support.
