We have wonderful news to share with you! During the month of May, we received word of two new supporting churches! God has been gracious and kind to move in the hearts of the pastors and people. Thank you, Pastor Vanderpool and the people of Windsor Hills Baptist Church of Corona, California, and Pastor Lamb and the people of Landmark Baptist Church of Parkersburg, West Virginia, for taking part in the furtherance of the Gospel. Thank you to those who have been faithful in your support in prayers and in giving during this time. We do not take any of your giving for granted, because we are fully aware that some of you are giving by faith while unemployed (not working or loss of a job). Thank you for your sacrifice. “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” (Philippians 1:3)
May 1: As mentioned in the previous letter, we welcomed our baby boy Royce into our family. With God’s perfect timing, Royce was born on the same day my father was born, which made his name of more significance than before. My father’s dream car was a Rolls- Royce, so we named our son Royce in memory of my father, who passed away in December of 2012. Royce was born at 2:26 a.m., weighing just 4 pounds 11 ounces. By the grace of God, he has grown one or two pounds over his birth weight and is continuing to gain weight. Thank you for your prayers!
May 17: God opened a door for us to be with Pastor Jim Price at Vision Baptist Church of Leduc, Alberta, Canada. Due to COVID-19 and a newborn, Arianna stayed in the Prices’ home while I was part of the church’s livestream. We were able to share God’s ministry in Japan, and I shared a message for the morning service. In the afternoon, we had supper with the Price family and a church member.
May 29: Praise the Lord! We received Royce’s birth certificate. Next, we will be applying for a born-abroad form, and once the processing is completed, we will apply for a passport to return to America.
We normally are not specific with our prayer requests, but in this letter, we would like to share some requests. Please pray for a fast process with Royce’s born-abroad application and passport so we can return to the U.S. as quickly as possible. Also, because our family has grown, we have outgrown our vehicle. We ask you to join us in prayer that God will provide another vehicle before we return. Our vehicle is currently in Texas, and we will need a larger one to travel back to California. Lastly, we are praying that God will allow us to go on our survey trip to Japan this July and that He will give us the money to complete the remaining cost for our trip.
Please pray for:
2. Faster turnaround rate for Royce’s processing.
3. God to specifically meet our requests.
With God’s love,
Micah and Arianna Bull
