Dear friends and supporters,
Thank you for being our co-workers by means of prayer and giving.
Please pray as the International Baptist Church (IBC) continues to squeeze the church family into the ministry home on Sundays. We now have a nursery (once a second floor bedroom) for our increasing number of infants and toddlers. Also, plans are progressing to provide basement seating for up to 10-15 congregants. By broadcasting the service to both the nursery and the basement, we may be able to provide room for up to 50 people on Sundays.
Our congregation is young, and many of our members are either starting businesses, beginning their careers, or still in school. Also, as young Christians, some are not yet accustomed to giving. As a result, the IBC needs time to develop before being able to afford a more user friendly meeting place. Pray for us.
Bible studies are increasing with multiple evangelistic and discipleship studies throughout the week. These include 5 on line studies with individuals inside and outside the country. Please pray for faith to come to those who are considering Christ and for growth to continue in our young disciples. The gospel is going out from Boston, but, in order to fulfill our calling, there are many obstacles that must be overcome. Please inconvenience yourselves in prayer for us.
The Lord willing, Deb and I will be traveling to China in May of this year. There are various opportunities for ministry that are best communicated privately, but, in order to make this trip, we are in need of $5,000.00. Some of you have already joined us in this gospel opportunity by giving. However we are still in need of over $4,000.00. Please pray for us.
If you are interested in our financial ministry needs you can visit our Supporters Website where you will find more information than you may have ever wanted.
We love you,
Bill and Deb
