A few months ago, I asked prayer for Daniel and Elizabeth, a couple I had been able to lead to Christ. On November 12, they both followed the Lord in baptism! They are also planning to join the church in December. They have been together for four years and have a four-year-old son named Nathaniel; however, they have not been married. They want to do things right before the Lord, so they are planning to get married in December also! Daniel also attended several weeks of our soul-winning training course in October and November. Please pray for these converts to grow in and bear fruit for the Lord.
On November 26, Collins, one of our bus captains, brought a young man named Elvis, whom he had led to the Lord, to my Sunday school class. We visited Elvis the following Wednesday and did a Bible study with him to confirm his salvation and also to teach him about baptism. After talking with Elvis, I was able to talk with his girlfriend Priscilla. Priscilla trusted Christ as her Saviour, and both Elvis and Priscilla came to church that evening and also came on Sunday. Elvis followed the Lord in baptism last Sunday, and Priscilla has expressed her desire to get baptized this coming Sunday. Please pray for Elvis and Priscilla to grow in the Lord and do His will.
Starting in October, Pastor Speer began teaching an eight-week soul-winning training course for new soul winners at 8:30 on Saturday mornings. Over 40 new soul winners have attended the class! Eight of my Sunday school class members have come for the training. Please pray for them to become faithful and effective soul winners. Their names are Daniel, Simon, Samuel, Albert, Edmond, Patience, Sandra, Collins, and Michael.
Book on Purity
When I became the singles’ director at our church a few years ago, I had a burden to help our single adults walk in sexual purity. In the day and age which we live, so many young people are getting entangled in and addicted to sexual sins. I taught several lessons to our singles on the topic of sexual purity. This year I compiled the lessons into a book, and we recently had the book printed! The book is titled God’s Call to Sexual Purity. I also had the privilege of teaching through my book to our Bible college students in the month of October. I thank the Lord for all those who have been helped through the book already. If you think the book may be of help to someone you know, you can send me an email, and I will give you a digital copy.
