Dear friends and supporters,

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

On November 17, 2013, the International Baptist Fellowship (IBF) became the International Baptist Church an orthodox Christian association (IBC). This last Sunday (December 8, 2013) the IBC closed its charter membership. Our charter membership consists of 34 adults, 18 of whom trusted in the Lord and were baptized while associated with the IBF. Over half of the IBC members were born outside of the United States. You may view the IBC constitution on the church website at www.ibcboston.org.

Sunday was a time of great blessing as we reviewed the work of God in our midst. We spent practically the whole day together, praying, praising, singing, learning, reminiscing, and, of course, eating. Our family members arrived early and stayed until late in the evening. It was a blessed day.

The IBF has ministered to many people on the way to becoming the IBC. Now, we are following our God given command to mentor our out of town disciples and to grow the IBC in Boston. We desire to obey God by ministering to the whole person in the whole city of Boston. By doing so, we hope to minister to the whole world outside of Boston.

We love you,

Bill and Deb
