Dear Pastor & Church,
Happy New Year!
We trust the new year has gotten off to a good start for you in this first month. 1Corinthians 1:9 says “God is faithful”. That tells us of the hope that Paul had as he wrote the church there. It’s also encouraging to read in those verses of “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” and of “the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Maybe this year will be the year!
It was great to hear from Bro Jacob up at the church in Birip where we were for a long time. Two people were saved last week. The church seems to be going forward spiritually but is in need of a building. Pray for wisdom to see them keep growing. Pray for guidance to guide them to do what they should do as they do their part. Lord willing we plan to visit them in a couple of weeks to help and encourage.
(1) A new work beginning in Tsak valley area near Wapenamanda. Pray for Bro Michael Saka and other preachers helping there. We went there repeatedly some years ago and had good response to tracts and preaching.
(2) Traveling safety as we take a family trip back up to these areas for 2 weeks.
(3) Christopher heading off to Bible college at Heartland BBC.
