God has been good to us.
Bernard, Benson, Logan and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ireland. We heard great preaching, had great fellowship and made great friends. We are very thankful that God opened the door for us to fly to Ireland for the men/boy's retreat. It was very good.
Our church supports the Layton Kelly family in Ireland. Layton was a drug addict whom God gloriously saved and called to preach. His family has opened a men's home to minister to addicts. God is doing amazing things in men's lives through his ministry. There were 20 men from his home there and several staff members. (There was an overall attendance at camp of around 100.) It was a blessing to hear how God is changing these men's lives. Please pray with us that God will open the door in the near future for us to start an addictions ministry.
While there the Lord confirmed in my heart His desire for us to purchase the property that has come available for our church. He has reinforced that in my heart today. Please pray for our church as we pursue this with all our hearts.
God gave us a great morning. A visitor from last week returned today and really enjoyed the service. I anticipate that she will continue to come. Please pray for God to meet her needs. I preached this morning on, "God Porters" from I Corinthians 9:22-30. God used it to stir my heart to fulfill the stewardships that He has given to me.
We have a very important week ahead of us and we covet your prayers. Pastor David and Valerie O'Gorman arrive tomorrow to minister to us this week. Please pray for .....
