During the month of May, we finished up our meetings in Montana, headed to South Dakota, and then traveled on to Wisconsin for a Missions Conference! We were able to go home to Michigan for about five days for one meeting, as well as to see as much family as we possibly could, and then we headed back on the road to Virginia and Louisiana! This month we were blessed to share the Lord’s work to East Africa with Lighthouse Baptist Church of Missoula, Montana; Emmanuel Baptist Church of Box Elder, South Dakota; Black River Baptist Church of Black River Falls, Wisconsin; Maranatha Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant, Michigan; Southside Baptist Church of Petersburg, Virginia; Bible Baptist Tabernacle of Minden, Louisiana; and Shady Grove Baptist Church of Bossier City, Louisiana!
While at Black River Baptist Church for their Missions Conference, all the missionaries and Pastor Jordan’s family went out from home to home throughout the town to hand out church invitations, along with the Gospel. While we were going from door to door, I had the privilege to speak to Leah while she was unloading groceries from her car. After talking with her for some time, I was then able to share the Gospel with her from my Bible. She admitted that she was not saved and needed to place her trust in Christ alone but did not want to make a decision at that present moment. Since then, Pastor Jordan has had one other opportunity to introduce himself and give her a church invite. Please pray with me that Leah will come to know Christ as her own personal Saviour and that Pastor Jordan will have continued opportunities to visit her and share the truth of God’s Word with her!
Toward the end of the month, our family was able to join Shreveport Baptist Temple as they went out soul winning. While we were out door knocking, we came to many homes that only spoke Spanish. We are very thankful that we had the chance to give them all a church invitation, as well as a Gospel tract, in Spanish! We pray that many of them will read the Word of Truth for the first time and come to call upon the Lord! We were also blessed to share the Gospel with a young lady named Angie and a gentleman named Markee. After sharing the Gospel with them, they both came to trust in Christ as their Saviour. Amen! Please pray that both Angie and Markee will now begin to attend church faithfully and grow in God’s Word!
Lastly, we want to praise the Lord and say thank you to the following churches for partnering with us throughout the month of May to reach the lost across East Africa: Lighthouse Baptist Church of Missoula, Montana; Southside Baptist Church of Petersburg, Virginia; Grace Baptist Church of Marrero, Louisiana; and Lake City Baptist Church of Polson, Montana! Thank you all for your faithful prayers and support. God bless you.
Your co-laborers for lost souls across East Africa,
Brandon, Ali, Jeffrey, Hannah, & Esther Heselschwerdt
