Brandon Heselschwerdt Prayer Letter: Great End to the YearWe trust you all had a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. Our family was able to enjoy some time with family and friends while we were home during the holiday season. It was good to see everyone before we hit the road again. Thank you all for your prayers and warm Christmas greetings.

We were blessed with two Sunday meetings this month. Our first meeting was at First Baptist Church of Laura, Ohio. I was blessed to present our ministry in the morning service, as well as preach during the evening service for Pastor Mowry.

We also were with Glory Baptist Church of Indianapolis, Indiana. On Saturday we were able to help with some decals that needed to be put on the church bus. After that we had the blessing of joining the church in caroling from house to house. On Sunday we were able to ride on the church bus and pick up those needing a ride for Sunday morning. In the evening service, I had the opportunity to present our ministry and preach. Thank you, Pastor Campbell and family, for your hospitality during the weekend and for the missions home we were able to stay in.

We also did some drop-ins throughout the month of December to try and get new meetings for next year. Would you please pray with us that the Lord would continue to fill in our calendar year with meetings and that He would guide us and use us as we travel. Please also pray with us as we aim to take a final survey trip to Kenya around August to get things in order and prepare for the big move! Lastly, we want to thank you for your faithful prayers and support during this year. We are now at 40% and are praying that by this time next year, we will be at the 100% mark and leaving for Kenya! Please pray with us toward this end, and together let’s see God do what only He can do!

May you all have a blessed New Year and shine the Gospel of Jesus Christ unto those in need.

Your co-laborers for lost souls across East Africa,

Brandon, Ali, Jeffrey, Hannah, & Esther Heselschwerdt
