New Life Is Springing Forth
The last Sunday night of April God gave us a word that the “soil is rumbling getting ready to spring forth with new life”. On May 14 we had three people receive the gift of the Holy Ghost in a Bible study. New life is beginning to spring forth! Please pray that we will continue to see discipleship progress with them. We are grateful for all of our partners who are making it possible for us to see God’s vision for our mission field fulfilled!
May Preview Service
We held our third preview service in May. We were blessed to have a ministry team from New Life in Bridgeton, MO led by youth pastor Tyler Cummings. It was a great weekend of outreach, ministry and fellowship. We are very grateful for their hard work, powerful worship, and prayer. We had eleven first time guests at the service. One first-time guest was a man from a Bible study we had been teaching. He was baptized at the end of service. We are grateful to The Life Church for loaning us their portable baptistry for the occasion!
We are looking forward to the remaining ministry teams coming in to be part of our preview services. A team from Topeka, KS will be with us for our June 16th preview service.
May brought about the conclusion of our first year of homeschooling. Anna finished the fourth grade and Anthony finished the eleventh grade while also completing six college credits through Liberty University. Homeschooling was a unique challenge for us. Our children missed New Life Academy in St Louis on a daily basis. However, with the prayers of friends and partners, and with God’s help everyone survived!
Pray with Us
Please help us pray for the following needs:
- That God will continue lead us to hungry hearts that are receptive to the Gospel.
- That God will help us to be effective in evangelizing and discipling those we connect with.
- That God would prepare and send the needed Apostolic people to help us begin services.
- That God would provide a Spanish speaking team member.
- About whether God would have you partner with us for the needed funds for our equipment.
For the Kingdom,
