Dear Family and Friends,
We're excited to share with you all the victories the Lord has won this past month! God has blessed all of your prayers as new souls have come to Christ, at least 5 will be baptized in December, and Sunday morning Church attendance right about 100! Please pray for 2 women who have been saved and are wanting to attend more regularly and be baptized, but both have husbands who stand against God's work here. As I've mentioned before, resistance from lost family members has been a consistent problem here. We know however that the Lord can and will knock down the strongholds, please pray for this!
Please pray also for the spreading of God's Word through a Bible Institute here, which I've mentioned in the past as well. We're currently looking into the possibility of starting up on a part-time basis early this coming 2006. We're excited as some young men in the Church are eager to give their lives to preaching God's Word and other Church members have also expressed interest in studying the Bible more in-depth through such an opportunity! Pray that we will be an instrument of the Lord here in taking the Gospel to many lost people in many places, here in the Philippines and even in other neighboring countries as the Lord leads us!
I've attached a recent picture of Kristine and Joshua. We're all doing really well and want to thank you all for your faithful prayers for our family and everything you do for us here! We plan on sending out more new pictures next month of the family, people in the Church, etc. Until then, God bless you all as we too continue in prayers for each of you!
Yours in Christ,
