Sunday night Deb and I flew to Milwaukee where we met Steve Butler (North American Administrator of Baptist Mid-Missions). Together we traveled to Maranatha Baptist University in order to recruit church planters for North America. Maranatha actually has a Masters of Urban Ministries degree in their seminary. One requirement to earn this degree is the completion of a four month internship in Boston. Please pray that future church planters will enter the Urban Masters degree program and join us in Boston for our internship.
We have a wonderful blessing to share. Today we received news that a young couple in our church delivered their second child. Several years ago, this couple came to Christ through the ministry of the International Baptist Church. Since then, they have had more than their share of difficult times. They named their second child Isaac.
See you next week,
Bill and Deb
