Spring has brought a lot of activity in soul winning and outreach. In March we began “Project Bearing Precious Seed,” where we have started distributing the books of John and Romans in booklet form to 20,000 homes. We divided the church into two teams, and we are having some friendly competition getting these John and Romans to people. The church people are having a great time with this, and almost 3,000 have been distributed. Praise our God!
Recently a man gave testimony that after receiving a John and Romans, he immediately began reading it in entirety. Others have contacted us as a result of receiving these wonderful portions of the Word of God, expressing their thanks and sharing how the Scriptures have been working in their hearts. Pray that God will help us with these divine appointments with souls that we may “preach Christ crucified” and risen again.
In March, we had a Soul-Winning Seminar that was a blessed and rich time of practical teaching on sharing the Gospel. We had a great number of people come, and more people are becoming faithful to outreach as a result! We took a group down to the Liverpool city center and enjoyed street ministry. Thank God for the freedom we enjoy in preaching the Gospel publicly. During this time, we met a man named Bob who had just been given a few months to live because of cancer. Although he didn’t get saved, he did take a John and Romans and promised to consider God’s Word. Pray for Bob.
A baptismal service is coming up on May 20. Pray for those who are scheduled to get baptized. They are excited about their family coming, and they are not saved.
Pray for Skelmersdale Baptist Church as more of God’s people begin sharing Christ with our community. SBC has the privilege of supporting missionaries around the world, but this does not negate the responsibility to reach our “Jerusalem” with the Gospel. “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Thank you for investing in us as we work to get the Gospel to every creature here in the greater Liverpool and Manchester areas.
Yours for the souls of England,
Justin, Holly, David, Jonathan, Nathan, and Samuel Williams
