“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4) Well, we can say that the Lord has given us a host of reasons to rejoice of late. To see a lost soul come to the Saviour is always a source of rejoicing, not only here, but also in Heaven. Brody was staying with his grandmother for a few days when we stopped by to visit her. He allowed me to show him the Bible way to Heaven, and he asked the Lord to save him. We were definitely rejoicing when we left! Brody lives three hours away, but we are thankful the Lord let our paths cross that day.
We continue to see growth at Coastline Baptist Church, which is another reason for great rejoicing. A senior gentleman has started coming and never wants to miss the chance to be in services. Just this past Sunday, a single mum and four of her children were in the service. She plans to start attending regularly, although she lives almost an hour away. Another couple, parents of a lady in the church, just moved down from the mainland and attend faithfully. The church continues soul winning, and the Lord blesses. The church must move from its current facility by December; we are anticipating what the Lord is going to do, in light of recent growth.
Laura has been discipling a lady and plans to start teaching another lady in the new year, while the Lord has me teaching a short series of lessons on the history of our trusted King James Bible. What an amazing BOOK we hold in our hands! We just returned from Melbourne, where we attended a Baptist Fellowship Conference, and I preached at the third anniversary service for a local Baptist church.
We would appreciate your prayers:
1. That Brody will move to Devonport from Hobart, so as to enable him to attend a Bible-preaching church.
2. That the Lord would continue to bring new people to church as we seek out lost souls.
3. That Nichole, Thomas, Rex, Lois, Phillip, Bill, Leonie, and Rob would also get saved.
4. That the Lord would lead the church in our search for a new building.
My wife and I are also moving at the end of this month. Please note our new address:
49 Berrigan Road
Miandetta, TAS 7310
We cannot thank you enough for your faithful support over the years. Thank you especially for praying for us.
