Dear Friends and Supporters,
We want to thank all of you for your continued prayers and support for our ministry. We would be nowhere without your faithfulness to what God is doing in the Riverside area and throughout Southern California.
After a few months of getting settled into our new home in Riverside, the last two months have seen us back on the road again. We had meetings in Wyoming, Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, and California in July and August. God continues to bless us with safety as we travel, and great favor with the churches we have the privilege of sharing our burden with. Several more churches have taken us on for monthly support, and we are now at 73% of the support we need.
We are very excited to announce we are working with Baptist Church Planting Ministry and Bro. Jeremy Rowland to help launch the church. Based on where we are with our support, we have a scheduled launch date of February 12, 2023. We praise the Lord for His mighty hand in all of this. In September Bro. Rowland will fly out to Southern California and along with myself, and my Pastor, we will survey the area for potential meeting places. We also have 25,000 custom-designed John/Romans booklets being shipped to us for distribution to about 90,000 people. This is going to be a great undertaking, but I am reminded of, and encouraged by, what 1 Corinthians 3:9 says, “For we are laborers together with God.”
We are also praying about beginning a Bible study in the month of November with those we reach in the area, whether they be saved or lost. We hope this will provide us with a core group of people we can begin the church with, along with a strong foundation when we launch in February.
