Praise the Lord for His working that we have seen in the last several weeks! April was both a busy and an exciting month! I was preaching somewhere four out of the five Sunday’s. I filled the pulpit at two different churches the first and last Sunday of the month, and we had two revival meetings in between. We were privileged to be with the Calvary Baptist Church in Urbana, IL, for a half-week, and the Lord gave us wonderful services. On Sunday morning we had a college student from the Congo named Joseph who walked the aisle and told the Pastor he wanted to accept Christ as His Savior! Though he didn’t understand much English, he knew and communicated that he wanted to trust Jesus and he did. We learned he was a former Muslim who converted to some type of Protestant faith, but now he is born again! We heard many positive comments of the Lord’s working in other peoples lives as well for which we give all glory to God.
We then traveled to Lewistown, IL, and had a meeting with the First Baptist Church and Pastor Eric Sawyer. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know this group of believers, and I believe God was working in hearts there too.
On another note, I heard from a Pastor we were with in March that one of the men we shared the gospel with finally trusted Christ alone as His personal Savior! I know we are to just be faithful in sowing the seed, but it is such a blessing to see when God gives the increase in lives!
We are home for the month of May, and then off to a camp in Kansas in June. God bless each of you as you serve Him faithfully!
