January began with a Vision Service, where we spoke of the new theme, “I Believe.” God has led us to preach and teach through doctrine this year. Pray that God will use this to establish new believers and perfect the saints.
The third lockdown is still in force. In-person services have been able to continue on Sunday mornings with livestreaming, and then Wednesdays have been livestreamed. One man contacted us after watching a service online. He got saved through a livestreamed service and came across our online videos. He asked about coming to church but had difficulty coming because of the distance from Preston, which is about 20 miles away. Our friend and fellow missionary, Dave Solt, pastors in Preston, and we were able to connect them both. This man went to their church, and he is growing in the Lord. Thank the Lord for using media to reach another soul for Jesus!
Holly turned 40 in February. The boys and I enjoyed the day with her and tried to spoil her. I thank God for the godly wife He has given me! She is truly God’s given helpmeet in marriage, family, and ministry.
Our prayer for visa expenses has wonderfully been nearly met. Since our last letter, $3,100 has come in or been promised. Praise God! Please pray for the needed remainder of $380.
For Easter Sunday, we are having two services: a 9:00 a.m. service and an 11:00 a.m. service. We are giving out 100 gifts for children that morning on a first-come, first-served basis between the services. We are sending out 10,000 tracts to cover most of Skelmersdale, along with digitally promoting the day. Pray that God brings visitors for both the in-person services and the livestream. Our hearts yearn to see souls saved through this outreach.
Thank you for praying and graciously giving to reach people with the Gospel here in the UK.
