Dear friends and supporters,
Thank you for being our co-workers by means of prayer and giving.
On May 20, This Week in Boston ended with these words, “Lord willing, next week a major answer to prayer concerning Toby and Susan Stevens will be shared here.”
It isn’t the next week, but I do have wonderful news to report. As you know, we have been praying, asking God to help the Stevens raise their financial support. God is answering our prayer. Their support has dramatically increased. They now have approximately 90% of their financial support. Praise the Lord! It looks like they will be back in Boston in late summer and beginning a new church plant in the Cambridge area. God is doing His work in Boston, and it is our (all of us together, missionaries, financial and prayer supporters) great privilege to join Him.
Please continue to pray for Andy Scott, who is also raising financial support to join the Boston team.
We have on-going evangelistic studies with four individuals and the potential for at least four other studies. Please pray.
Also, please continue to pray that new relationships will form with the immigrant community of Malden. Two potential ways for this to happen is by means of English conversational class and cooking classes.
Please pray with us,
Dear Father, please help the International Baptist Church (IBC) join You in building a just, equitable, and righteous church in Boston. Please give the IBC wisdom to build, “the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth,” a place where every kind of person is effectively cared for, a discipling center that will equip individuals to start discipleship centers wherever they go. Please give the IBC wisdom to build a multi-ethnic church that ministers to the whole world in Boston (every ethnicity, university/college, rich and poor, sophisticated or simple minded). Help the International Baptist Church be a truly orthodox church in every good sense of the word. Without Your supernatural empowering, this will not be done. Make us into a church that is able to do Your will in Boston.
It is in the name of Jesus Christ that we pray,
