December 2018 Missions Letter

Baptismal Service & Christmas Service

We were able to have our first mission conference in November. We also had our mission board director, Jeff Bush, down to preach and to help give guidance as we continue here in the ministry. We also had a young lady, Karen, trust Jesus as her Savior just before the start of our midweek service! 

This month we have a baptismal service on December 16. We have over 10 people lined up to be baptized during this service! We will also have a special Christmas service on December 23. These are great opportunities to invite others to special services!

We have an opportunity to buy a building for Faith Baptist Church. It is only 5 blocks from where we are renting. We are praying God supplies what we lack.

Serving Together,

Patrick, Leslie, Lily, Piper, Ivy, and Isla Henry

  • Pray God provides the remaining funds needed to purchase a building for Faith Baptist Church.
  • Pray for our discipleship program, that we get more individuals involved.
  • Pray for the new families visiting Faith Baptist Church.
  • Pray for the individuals who are visiting the church to be saved!

Searching for a Building

We have been renting a building since we started the church. The rental contract will be coming to a close in the next few months. We are now searching for a building to buy for the church. We have some money saved up for this, we will not have enough to purchase and we are trusting God in this. Pray that God direct us with this opportunity!

Quick Update: Northern Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay

This weekend we are in northern Argentina, southern Brazil, and eastern Paraguay. These three countries meet to make a “triple border”. Faith Baptist Church will have their services as normal. A dear friend and Argentine brother from a sister-church will be preaching in our absence. We look forward to returning on Monday. I am praying that God use my absence to help a couple of guys rise up to help lead. Please pray this way with us.

Quick Update: Giving Thanks and Growing in Christ

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday! The King family (missionary family working with us) came over and we enjoyed a delicious meal of turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and even pumpkin pie! This weekend we will be continuing discipleship. Please pray that God continue to work in those being discipled. I am praying for more people to join in.

We will have a special fellowship after the Sunday evening service. This will be another opportunity to get to know those attending the church.

Please pray as we continue to look for a building. God is blessing in this endeavor and we are trusting Him!

Quick Update: A New Believer and A Possible New Building

We enjoyed the week with our mission director Jeff Bush. I learned a lot as we discussed topics from marriage, family, church planting, discipleship, and ministry.

Last night we had the pleasure of leading a young lady to faith in Jesus. She is a result of the english classes we had a few months ago. Ashley King, a missionary who we serve with, has been hosting a weekly classes with a group of girls. After we had the opportunity to explain what salvation is and how to be saved, Karen received Jesus as her Savior! I am thankful that God is working in the hearts of those attending the church. Please pray for her sister, who is attending the church on Thursday nights but has not believed on Jesus yet.

Last week we were also able to look at a building that is for sale that is just a few blocks from the building we are renting. This is a perfect opportunity for our church as we are growing and as we continue on in the ministry. Please pray that God will give us wisdom as we begin conversations with the real estate office and the owner of the property. We have money set aside for this purchase but I am sure we don’t have enough. All of this is in the hands of the Lord. Pray with us please.

We ask that you also pray with us as we set in motion the many things we have learned over this past week with our missions director. God bless you.
