Dear friends and supporters,

Thank you for being our co-workers by means of prayer and giving.

Last Sunday marked our third Sunday without an official meeting place, but our home is serving well as a replacement location. In fact, 43 people squeezed into our living room this last Sunday. We have temporarily delayed deciding on a meeting location as we deal with other pressing matters. Where we meet is actually a very important decision to be made. There are many things to consider. Please pray that God will lead our congregation to make the wisest decision. Pray that our decision will help us minister the gospel to the world that is in Boston.

Sunday was special for another reason, During the morning service, Will made it known that he has placed his trust in the Savior and is planning to be baptized. Several of us studied the Bible with Will over the last year, and, during a Friday afternoon Bible study recently, Will bowed his head and thanked God for sending Jesus to die for him. Will is a graduate student from China.

We have a major prayer request. The International Baptist Fellowship will have three International Thanksgiving Dinners on November 22, 23 and 24. All three of these dinners will be in our home, which will sit 25 at three tables. The Friday night and Saturday night dinners reservations are already filled, and the Sunday night is filling quickly. Pray especially for Deb, who is the chief cook and administrator of all three dinners. We will meet many new friends at these dinners. In fact, many of our disciples initially became interested in the Bible and God when attending this dinner.

We love you,

Bill and Deb
