We are thankful for God’s mercies; surely they are new every morning! “It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23) We have clearly seen His hand of blessing upon His work here of late, for which we praise Him.
Church has been very full on Sunday mornings, and we have enjoyed having many visitors. Therefore, we have rearranged the auditorium to fit in more chairs, once again. Praise God! Our average attendance is up by about 25% on this time last year. We are also excited to have more members witnessing for Christ, both as a part of our church-wide soul winning and in their daily lives. As a result, we are seeing people come to Christ every month and often weekly. Praise God! The glory is ALL His!
Please be in prayer for my voice. Many of you know that I lost my voice completely and have been recuperating ever since. I was unable to speak above a whisper for quite a while and have not been able to preach for a month. Praise God that there is no physiological damage to my vocal chords; I simply have not taken good care of my voice. This Friday I will see the speech pathologist and get help. Please pray that I will be able to preach at least once a week by the end of July. Thank God for this trial. Not only has God used it to teach me so many things, but it has been good for our church also. We always learn more in the valley than on the mountaintop, don’t we?
