At the age of five in our home in Findlay, Ohio, I asked Jesus to save me. My parents gave me the privilege of being reared in a Christian home. I attended a Christian school until the sixth grade and then a public school until the end of my junior year. I was home-schooled my senior year.

In January of 1997, God called me to preach. In March of the same year, I went to Pastors’ School for the first time. It was there that God led me to Hyles-Anderson College to prepare for the ministry. During the spring semester of 1999 in my freshman year at college, I was privileged to hear Brother Mark Bachman preach in the college’s Missions Conference. Under his preaching, I surrendered to go to England as a missionary.

After graduating Bible college in 2002, Holly and I stayed in the Crown Point area until she graduated the following May. In 2003 Holly and I moved to Delaware, OH to work in the ministry of our home church, Grace Baptist Church. One year later we began deputation. In February, 2009, we moved to England and started Grace Baptist Church in north London in October of the same year.

In May 2016, Skelmersdale Baptist Church, called me as pastor. SBC has seen God open amazing doors for them. The council has given us a building for the cost of $1.75 a year! When we came there was 9 others in attendance, but since then God has grown His church amazingly. We are finishing a building project to expand our auditorium to accommodate over 75 people. We are excited about what God is doing and thrilled to serve these amazing people in the Liverpool area! Pray for us as we continue training nationals to start independent Baptist church across England and the world.

My life’s verses are Philippians 1:20-21  According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Justin Williams Prayer Letter: God Is Strong!

Justin Williams Prayer Letter:  God Is Strong!The Lord has taught me a lesson, a truth that has brought a renewed focus on Him. In Isaiah 40:27-31, we read a very familiar set of verses. I have heard many messages from this passage over the years, but I misunderstood the context. The Jews were given a promise to return to Jerusalem, and yet during the 70 years of captivity, they would begin to complain that their punishment should be over and/or God had forgotten them. God then reminds them of Who He is and the strength He supplies. The truth God brought to my heart is that without the captivity, the problem, and/or the punishment, we would never know what God can do. God uses the negatives (as we see them) for positives so we see how strong God is! Our God is so strong that the struggles in life are one of His ways to show us how great He is!

SBC celebrated its seven-year anniversary in September by looking back at what the Lord has done and looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us. God has given us a building and has provided an incredible opportunity to remodel the facilities. We took up commitments for the building repair; and, by God’s grace, we should be able to complete all the remodels before our target date! So far, over £3,700 (US$4,800) has been given in less than two months! Great is our strong God!

Several times a year, we travel to Liverpool One Centre, about 30 minutes away from the church, and serve in street ministry. Often several cars are needed to bring those wanting to be a part of this Gospel ministry. Hundreds of tracts, John & Romans, and church invitations are given out, along with publicly preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One of our men loves to serve in this ministry, and he and I often preach together. After both of us preached the Gospel, a man named John, who was living on the street with his family, heard us preach. The street is very wide in this area, with hundreds visiting the shops and mall in this area. John yelled across the street, “Would you come here? I want to know more about Jesus.” Heaven rejoiced moments later, as John trusted in Christ alone for His salvation! Praise God for His strength to forgive sins!

The Missions Month was an incredible time of renewing our vision for the world’s need to hear the Gospel. God blessed with an increase to our Faith Promise giving, and we are excited to partner with more missionaries! God’s grace has enabled His church to give.

Thank you for praying for my upcoming operation on my gallbladder. Your prayers have made a difference! I had an operation scheduled for late October, only for it to be cancelled by the NHS. I am still waiting for the operation to be rescheduled. God has strengthened, though, as I have not had a major gallstone attack since mid-September. Please continue praying.

Please pray for our Christmas service schedule and outreach time. We’ll be enjoying a Carol Service, a Candlelight Service, and a Christmas Morning Service, along with banquets and other activities. Pray that God uses this to see souls saved and the church strengthened.

My family and I pray that God blesses and strengthens your ministry in this Christmas season. Thank you for faithfully partnering with us in prayer and support.

Yours for the souls of England,

Justin, Holly, David, Jonathan, Nathan, and Samuel Williams
