My family and I are excited to be writing this letter from England once again! The move and transition have gone so well that my mind keeps racing back to what Job said, “. . . the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” The bumps along the way through this transition have been minor compared to the goodness of the Lord!
We have unpacked many of our things from storage that we had left here in Liverpool, but there are still some boxes left to sort through. We shipped a couple of pallets of the book of Romans, along with some personal belongings. Thanks to Directline Ministries in Ohio, we’re able to get some great shipping rates! In all of our belongings that we stored and shipped, we have found only one broken plate. God certainly kept everything safe!
Skelmersdale Baptist Church has been amazing! God’s people have stepped beside us and have put their shoulders to the plow. They have made us feel welcomed, loved, and encouraged. We feel very much at home here. It’s been an extremely busy couple of months already, and God has been working through the soul winning, leafletting (passing out tracts), church work days, fellowship dinners, building repairs, and so much more.
Alex, Stephanie, and their family started coming so faithfully shortly after our arrival. After a few visits, I came up to them after the service and thanked them for coming. They surprised me when they said, “We had to!” I asked them what they meant, and they replied, “We want to get saved and knew we had to come to find out how to get saved.” I took them aside and told them the Gospel story, and they were sweetly saved! Glory to God! Pray for them as they grow and for their family members they have invited for their baptisms in a couple of weeks.
Our UK address is:
1 Church Hill Road
Thank you for your faithfulness over these past few years. Without your prayers, support, and help, this would not be possible. We are excited to see what they Lord has in store for Skelmersdale Baptist Church, and we are proud to be a part of your missions family. We love you and thank God for you!
Yours for the souls of England,
Justin, Holly, David, Jonathan, Nathan, and Samuel Williams
