In the last few weeks we have been marveling at what God is doing. I’m not sure what is happening but it is clear that God is on the move. I am reminded of 1 Thessalonians 5:24 where it said,
“Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.”
God is beginning to do some amazing things that I want to share.
A Full House For Three Weeks
In the last few weeks we have seen a sudden growth in attendance that is unexplainable apart from God’s drawing. We have not had any special promotions or programs. A few weeks ago I mentioned how we had five first time visitors attend our services. That was followed by another week with a full crowd and more visitors. Then last week we had about twenty five adults and about thirty including children. It is not uncommon to have this size of crowd around Christmas or Easter, but God seems to be doing something. Several of the visitors have made plans to continuing coming and we are rejoicing in God’s work.
I have a hunch that God is beginning to bestow His blessings as a result of someone’s prayer. I don’t take lightly those who are praying for our ministry and it seems that God is beginning to break through. But don’t stop praying! Pray that those who are coming will respond in faith to Biblical truth. It would be counterproductive if people hear truth without responding.
A Full Size Van
With the amount of people that have been coming we asked Douglas Baptist Church if they had any more of the chairs that they had given us years ago, before my wife and I came. They were more than happy to give us some more but it wasn’t but a week after we asked that Pastor Phillips called me to inform me that their church wanted to give us a church van. We are very excited about using this in the ministry here.
