Dear friends and supporters,

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

Over the last several weeks we have reviewed our God given opportunities for networking with the Chinese church for global church planting. Yet our Chinese congregation only represents one country of many located in Boston. We believe that God has brought the nations to cities like Boston so that Christians can obey Him by making disciples of all nations.

Cities are also places of great human suffering. Biblical ministry will not ignore the pain found in the city. Rather, biblical ministry authenticates itself by ministering to those who are the most needy.

A church which is successful in making disciples from all ethnicities found in the city and which ministers to all the human need in the city will be prepared to impact other countries with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This means that The International Baptist Church must succeed at joining the Savior in building His church in Boston. This is our greatest need. If we are to be a blessing to other nations, first of all, we need to be a blessing to Boston. God has enabled us to minister a bit to China, but the rest of the world in Boston waits.

These thoughts are actually firm convictions, which I am passionate about. Lord willing, in the weeks to come, I will explain why these things are so important to me.

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
