As we approach our 25th year as missionaries to England, our hearts are overwhelmed with all the kindness and blessings that have come our way! Your prayers are making a difference, as our ministry over here is strengthening. The foundational work in our city of Preston is established. Many residents know about the church, and thousands have been reached with the Gospel. We believe God is also using our influence to affect other areas for Christ, and it’s all thanks to years of faithful prayers and financial support. Thank you!
We Made It!
After much witnessing week after week, a recorded 211 people bowed their heads, professing their faith in Jesus in 2017. Our goal was 200 by the end of the year. Thank you for your prayers. Already this year 17 souls have trusted Christ, and 2 recently followed the Lord in believer’s baptism. This is even after an especially cold winter by English standards. It is so encouraging to see God at work in the hearts of our people and community.
Much was done over the winter to help our 106-year-old church building look great. Now we are busy updating and changing our website and multimedia. Ministry is a lot of work, with its many hours of sermon preparation and Bible studies with spiritually hungry hearts, but it is so rewarding . . . and there is this underlying feeling that the best days are yet to come! God is working, and we need to keep maintaining, reaching out, and helping more people find Jesus. God’s work is great work. Thanks for helping us to make it happen!
Jeremy (now 16) uses his piano skills for services and was a big help during our Spring Roundup. We had over 20 children attend and a great team spirit with our folks. Daniel is doing excellent work as a junior at Hyles-Anderson College. It looks like we will be attending a graduation next spring! We are also very pleased that Josh is working hard and doing great adjusting to life in the U.S. and as a freshman at HAC. Thanks for all your prayers, notes, emails, and financial help over Christmas and throughout the year. It’s a joy to serve God over here, knowing that you are with us over there. God bless you.
Yours for souls,
The Solt Family
