Great progress and testimonies this week on the CONNECTIONS MINISTRY.
I have received the first shipment of Bibles. I am still waiting for the 3 Essentials for Christian Living Books, the prayer cards and bags. I should have all of the supplies in by the end of this coming week. Then, we are ready to take to the streets and neighborhoods to begin the Bible Distribution effort!!
I am still receiving great testimonies from the phone calling effort that was made at Lindale Assembly. Several people are now attending on Wednesday nights and Sundays, as well as asking about how to join the church. I can't wait to put the next phase of ministry in action with them.
We are 2 weeks away from being able to start making visits with Imperial Valley and Alvin First Assembly. Everyone seems to be excited and ready to go out to tell people about Jesus.
Still trying to get some "traction' and organization in regard to Emerge Church. Please pray for this part of the effort.
Also, please pray for the people at Imperial Valley. One of the biggest challenges that we are facing, is the fact that there are no children or teenagers in their church. When we begin going out into the neighborhood, families will come, but we need to be ready with ministry opportunities for their children. Please pray that God will send more workers, specifically for what they need. They are also in need of help with renovating a portion of their building that has gone unused for several years. (Mold, mildew, etc.) I know that God has the provision for all of this, we just need to ask and listen.
We are also putting the finishing touches on a grant application that will help us to purchase more Bibles and supplies for the CONNECTIONS MINISTRY effort. Please pray for a favorable response.
Looking forward to next week's report.
