New Faces And Friends


Guernsey town map1Our First Time Canvasing The Town

We spent the first few days this week canvasing the town with door hangers inviting people to our Friday Family Night.  In the two days that we canvased the town we were able to talk to several people and received a positive response. I even talked to one man who had helped with part of the construction on our church building. Another Man, Steve, stood and talked to me for almost thirty minutes and I was able to share the Gospel with him. We just wanted a chance to meet some of the people in our community in an informal way and we were able to do so around some snacks and board games. We had only had one visitor come to our activity but we had four new people in church on Sunday. Please pray that the Lord would continue to open up doors of opportunity in our community.

Our Sunday service was down a bit this week. We had 12 adults and 4 children and it was very encouraging to see four new faces. As I’m writing this update John Castle, the visitor at our Friday Family Night, is tuning our church piano as a favor for the church. The Lord has truly blessed our efforts and we trust that as we seek to do His will the work here will move forward.

A Little Camping Before Saying Good By

Because Becca’s cousin Christina was planning on leaving Friday night we decided that we had better spend a night camping at the Guernsey State Park before she left. So, on Thursday we did some hiking at the park and then spent the night there. It was a bit chilly that night but we slept just fine. There is so much natural beauty that is simply breath taking right in our back yard.

Please Pray

Here are some specific prayer requests that we have…

  • Please pray that we would be able to be a strong witness for Christ
  • Please pray for the spiritual growth of our people
  • Please pray for those who we have recently met
    • Steve – Salvation
    • Jamie – Salvation
    • Heidi – Salvation
    • John Castle – Spiritual Growth
    • Helene – Spiritual Growth
  • Please pray for wisdom concerning our Mortgage
