Dear Pastor and Church,
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name.” Psm. 103:1 Its good to write to you again from the new work in Okc, Ok. Grace Independent Baptist Church. We are about to finish our third month and we are excited for what God has done. We are averaging 14, and have had five saved, and have baptized 5. All of these people were totally unchurched people. I was amazed this last Sunday to see the evidence of growth in the people as they ask and gave amazing insight.
We had 18 for our Thanksgiving dinner with 4 first time visitors. Wo of the men have joined by baptism, and we have 3 men who have been coming pretty faithful that I believe will be added soon. They are all excited to go out caroling with us on the 20th of Dec. and hand out cookie plates to people we have found as prospect.
Our first Missions conference will take place from January 1st -3rd. We will have the Keller family to Italy who we took on as our first missionary. As new converts, I’m amazed at their acceptance of Faith promise. The four adults we have baptized have all started putting in a little for missions already. I just believe God will bless them for getting involved early in their Christian lives.
Thank you for your prayers and support. God is Good!
For the Souls of Men, Rick Carter
