Dear Bro. Rhoades and Church,
“You don’t recognize me, do you?” asked a lady of one of one of our men.
“No, I’m sorry. Should I know you?’ he questioned.
“No, but I recognize you. I have passed you on the street three or four times, and you
always handed me a tract and invited me to this church. I came today and received Christ!”
This was one of the wonderful highlights of our church anniversary August 1st. We had record crowds in both our Saturday congregation and our Sunday congregation. We had a total of 110 visitors and 63 received Christ as their Saviour. It was a time of rejoicing for all of us and has inspired all of us anew and given us an even greater vision of what God can do.
We always expect wonderful things from God and He never disappoints us. During the month of July we had 23 saved, 3 baptized, and 7 transferred their membership to the church. MAny of these people also came because they were given tracts. Please pray with us that more of those won for Christ will follow Him in baptism. This is a veery difficult step for most of them.
We are always moved by your love expressed to through prayers and support. Each month we have renewed strength because of your faithfulness. Thank you for being a part of our ministry and the great things God is doing here. We know we can be here in the ministry because He uses you to help make that possible.
Love in Christ,
