The new year has begun, and we look forward to the Lord’s continued blessing on the work here in Tasmania. Pastor Westbrook has been teaching a series of practical lessons on soul winning following the afternoon service. Several people have participated in going down to the open-air mall after that to hand out tracts and present the Gospel. It is encouraging to see their eagerness to witness for the Lord.
At the end of January, five teens/young adults from the mainland spent a week with the young people from our church. Along with fellowshipping and enjoying the beautiful sights of the island, all of the teens participated in special music for the services, and one of the young men brought an amazing message on music. This was a wonderful opportunity for the young people (and us “oldies”) to encourage one another. (“That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.” –Romans 1:12) There are no like-minded churches that we know of in Tasmania.
We would appreciate prayer for the following requests:
o Continued prayer for Pastor Westbrook, as the vertigo is still a recurring issue
o To see more souls saved and in church
o For the Lord to soften more hearts to the Gospel
o The marriage on February 28 of Mitch and Chloe, a young couple in the church
o The Lord to work in the lives of some who have been struggling spiritually
We would like to praise the Lord that Laura’s health has improved significantly. She has an appointment with a doctor in Sydney in February to get further answers. Please continue to pray for her. We are so thankful for those who uplift us in prayer. Prayer is undoubtedly the greatest need for all of us.
Your ongoing support is appreciated far more than mere words can convey. Thank you.
Sincerely yours in the service of the King,
