Ron Back Prayer Letter:  New Converts Excited About Attending ChurchGod is so good! Thank you for praying for our last requests. I am praising the Lord that I can announce that Ray and Zora, after six Bible studies, have trusted Christ as their Saviour! Please continue to pray for them, as the Devil is working to keep them away from church. We would also like you to pray that they get baptized.

We were also able to lead Donna, Mark’s wife, and their two children, Sabine and James, to trust Christ as their Saviour. Now the whole family is excited and attending church. It is so fun to teach new converts in Sunday school. They are happy and wanting to get baptized.

While out door-to-door soul winning, God was so good to lead me to a lady named Lana, one of the leaders of the Aboriginal groups here in Warragul. After about 20 minutes of conversation, she acknowledged she had no idea if she would go to Heaven. She sweetly trusted Christ as her Saviour. It has been a very exciting couple of months here. God has opened so many spiritual doors for us.

I was also able to find a custom rain-tank company, a local shop here in Warragul. I explained to the owner that we needed a baptismal tank. The man just nodded and smiled and then helped me figure out the dimensions. He said he would work on the price. About six weeks passed, and we had no contact. When I called him, he let me know they could make the tank for $600.00. Praise the Lord! He finished it in six weeks, and now we have a brand-new tank for baptizing.

With all these blessings, I am noticing how Satan has been attacking the Back Pack again. I have several churches continue to ask us what projects we have going and how they can help us financially. We have had several thousand dollars in car repairs and maintenance. I generally do not like asking churches for financial help, but we could use some help with these recent expenses.

We are happy that Pastor Frazier visited from Northside Baptist Church of Burnet, Texas. While he was here, he preached some wonderful sermons that were helpful to all. What a blessing it was to have a supporting pastor visit and bring a prospective future missionary to Australia. If any of you would like to visit us, we would be glad to have you!

Please continue to pray for our converts to be baptized and join the church, for more souls to be saved, and for more opportunities to give the Gospel. Please pray also for our family’s health and for God to provide for our financial needs.
