This post is both a praise and a request for prayer. Over the past couple months, the men’s outreach in Gales Point has been growing in every way imaginable. Tonight we had over twenty men and young men gathered together to explore whether you can tell if a person is a Christian simply by their fruit. They prayed for each other and debated this topic for two hours. For those of you who know the struggle we’ve faced over the years to get even one or two men to willingly attend or participate in any meeting in the church, you will agree that this is nothing short of an act of God.
Many of these men and young men seem to be lingering right on the edge of giving their hearts to Christ. Please please bathe these men in prayer. Pray especially for the upcoming men’s retreat on Oct. 21-23rd. Pray that we as missionaries and the church leadership will continue to be faithful and vocal witnesses and that we will not get in the way as the Holy Spirit does his work. Thanks!
Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?” For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.
