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: His Tender Mercies

Justin Williams Prayer Letter: His Tender MerciesPsalms 145:9 says, “The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.” No matter who we are or where we are, God has been good to us. God has been so good to us throughout 2019. Thank God for His incredible mercies as we serve Him, reaching others with the Gospel.

November began with enjoying a Harvest Sunday, which is similar to a Thanksgiving service, where we praise God for the harvest He has provided throughout the year. During this service, we begin taking collections for Christmas hampers (food baskets) for struggling families in our area. The church rallies behind this with special offerings and a lot of non-perishable food items. Through this, God enabled us to provide six large hampers of food filled with turkeys, vegetables, and much more food. This has greatly opened the door for us in schools and other Gospel opportunities.

Later in November, Holly enjoyed taking ladies from several area churches, including SBC, for a scavenger shopping trip at an area mall. The ladies really enjoyed this, and other churches were encouraged through it. Pray for the Ladies’ Ministry, as God has been wonderfully growing this ministry.

December began with burdens and excitement. One of the larger families that started coming this year and were growing tremendously suddenly decided to leave the church. God turned a sad situation into a building and growing opportunity for me, my family, and the church. God used this unfortunate circumstance to bring unity and strength to young and older Christians alike. The spirit of the church is wonderful, and since then, God has brought families back, more visitors, and great opportunities to preach Jesus Christ.

One of the opportunities God gave us was to sing Christmas carols in three care homes (nursing homes). This was such a blessing, as we preached the virgin birth of Jesus and gave the Gospel. Some responded to the preaching and were gloriously saved! One of the men has started coming to our Sunday services with one of the nurses!

The Christmas services were blessed with visitors at each service, and some of the visitors were from invitations from church members. Pray for them as we follow up with the Gospel and discipleship.

Thank you for expressing your love for my family and me this Christmas season through cards, gifts, and encouraging emails. Your faithfulness this year in prayer, support, and love gifts has enabled us to serve our Saviour here in England. Our sacrifice together enables the Gospel to be preached to regions beyond! May the Lord richly bless this new year God has given us as we step out by faith to do more for our loving Redeemer and Friend!

Yours for the souls of England,

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