God has blessed tremendously. The majority of the churches that we have visited have already voted to partner with us. This will place us at 50% of what we need. We are looking forward to the last half of our deputation process.
Please pray for us. We are currently raising the finances we need to make a trip to Kenya the last week of February and the first week of March. We will be using that time to make new connections, do some ministry work in some remote villages, and start looking at housing.
I am grateful for how God has used our ministry over this last year. Over this past year, we have had the opportunity to lead 68 people to the Lord, as well as see 4 people surrender to the mission field.
A few weeks ago while out visiting, I knocked on a door. A man named Michael answered. At first, he was very irritated and reserved. After a few minutes, I had the opportunity to share the Gospel with him. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and asked me why no one had ever told him this before. I watched Michael bow his head and receive Christ as his Saviour. He asked me to come in and share the Gospel with his two sons, which resulted in both of them receiving Christ.
Soul winning still works; door-to-door still works. There are many people all across our country who have never heard the Gospel. Remember that the Gospel is only good news if people hear it in time.
In His service,
The Newton Family
