November 2012 Update

Dear Prayer Warriors,
“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thes. 5:18). This is the month of Thanksgiving (in the U.S., and last month in Canada) but every day should be a day of Thanksgiving for us as believers in Christ Jesus! We have SO much to be thankful for, daily, starting with our eternal salvation.
We are thankful this month for the following…
• We are SO thankful for the ladies and young people who have made decisions for Christ in the last month, and who are showing definite signs of growth in the Lord.
• We are SO thankful for the many opportunities God gives us to share His Word weekly here in Nicaragua.
• We are SO thankful for your faithful prayers and support all of these years!
• We are also SO thankful that even though the ECC Baptist Church still doesn’t have its own property and building, the church family keeps meeting together faithfully and are striving together to see the Lord’s work going forward.
• We are SO thankful that God has already provided the $1,000 for the “Friend Ship” ministry boat auxiliary motor through the sacrificial giving of a dear brother.
The main prayer needs we have this month are…
1. Please pray for God’s continued working in the hearts of the students and families of the Stilecroft Christian School where we and other ABWE missionaries are giving the Bible classes.
2. Pray for the ladies in the Bible study (led by Carmen and Desiree) who have made decisions for Christ. Please pray for others who still need to come to salvation in Christ.
3. Please pray for those attending the monthly Sunday afternoon “Vespers” and fellowship time held in our home, as many of them do not know the Lord as Savior yet. (Recent Update: Several made decisions for Christ on October 21st!)
4. We have urgent needs in our support and ministry fund accounts which are in deficit. Ministry opportunities are being affected. Please pray for the Lord’s provision for these needs.
5. Please pray for the Encounter with Christ (ECC) Baptist Church as they (and we) seek to raise the funds for a property and building. Please pray that they can find a good property soon at a good price. The church has been in existence for 10 years now, and has moved six times. They really need to have their own place of worship. They have sent eight young people to prepare for ministry, which has also been a financial burden for the church. In spite of this, they are saving as much as they can towards their own property and have saved over $20,000 now. Please help us with your fervent, effectual prayers for this urgent need!
Thank you once more, dear friends, for your faithful prayer ministry with us. It is another demonstration of God’s love and care for us. We pray His richest blessings on you.
