We would like to open up our prayer letter by thanking the following churches for the opportunity to present Kenya, East Africa, in their services: Wolverine Baptist Church of Wolverine, Michigan; Bible Baptist Church of Central Lake, Michigan; Shreveport Baptist Temple of Shreveport, Louisiana; Grass Lake Baptist Church of Grass Lake, Michigan; and Walker Bible Baptist Church of Lansing, Michigan.
We kicked off the month of August with Wolverine Baptist Church and Pastor Springer. We were honored to pass out flyers for their kids’ Bus Ministry, as well as give out the Gospel! It was a blessing to share the ministry to Kenya and to preach for their afternoon service. From Wolverine, we headed to Central Lake, Michigan, to present and preach at Bible Baptist Church for their midweek service. Praise the Lord, they voted to partner with us immediately at the end of their service!
I was honored this month to preach for four nights at Revive Bible Church of Delton, Michigan, one of our supporting churches, for their revival meeting! It was a blessing to see God working through the services and to see the passion and unity of God’s people there! One young boy raised his hand for salvation during the invitation, and another young woman was baptized following the services! Pray that God will continue to work through the preaching of His Word and through Revive Bible Church!
Ali and I were thankful for a weekend getaway—just the two of us—to Shreveport Baptist Temple. Our parents watched our kiddos for about five days while Ali and I went to Louisiana and back to present our work to Shreveport Baptist Temple. I want to thank Loomis Park Baptist Church for loving on our kids while they were there with Ali’s parents! On our way back from SBT, Ali and I were blessed to stop at Widow’s Jar Ministries, Inc. in Indianapolis, Indiana. We were able to pick out many things that we will be needing over in Kenya, and it was all freely given to us! Thank you so much for those who donate and help out at Widow’s Jar; it truly was a blessing to our family.
Lastly, we want to say thank you to the following churches that have partnered with us: Bible Baptist Church of Central Lake, Michigan, and Central Baptist Church of Gillette, Wyoming! Praise the Lord, we have closed out the month of August officially at 80% of our needed support! Please pray with us that the final 20% will come in before the end of the year.
Thank you so much for your faithfulness in support and prayers. God bless you.
Your co-laborers for lost souls across East Africa,
Brandon, Ali, Jeffrey, Hannah, & Esther Heselschwerdt
