Ministry Update

I'm really falling behind when it comes to blogging. I don't know maybe I lost interest, or maybe I'm too busy or maybe both, not sure. Anyways there has been some encouraging things happening. We are gearing up for our deputation March thru September. I have the bulk of our services scheduled, now we have to get all our pr material together, that will take some time (and money). The church has been growing. The last two Sundays we have averaged about 26 in the mornings. We have eliminated our 2:00 afternoon Sunday school class and Hannah is now teaching class on Sunday mornings while I'm preaching. She is doing a great job and the kids love it! It is working so much better that way.
I have about 6 people I'm discipling for baptism. I hope to have them baptized by the time we leave for the states. Pray for them.
We are still meeting with our other group on Saturdays. There are four converts there that we are working with as well. We would like to construct a metal roof hopefully this month, so we have a more permanent place to meet and we don't have to worry about rain.
God has been really helping us in our services. People are seeking God, many our testifying that God has really been changing their lives. One of the couples that got saved have quit their drinking, they come to church faithfully and have made a complete turn around, it is so exciting. Another couple are under conviction concerning adultery. They have lived together for eight years. Please pray for them. It is a real struggle. It is a hard web to untangle but God is definitely helping them. They have made good progress.
Hannah and Joseph are both doing good. It seems like every time we turn around Joseph makes another mess or breaks something. I guess that is normal for a two year old. He loves to help me with whatever I'm doing. He imitates a lot of what I do, it is so funny. He is growing so fast.
Thanks so much for all you do. We appreciate those of you who sent extra support during Christmas, for the cards and gifts and all the little special things you do. It means so much. Continue to pray for the ministry. It's growing and God is blessing. We are so happy serving the Lord in Honduras, we wouldn't want anything else!

We were wondering if you are doing any deputation services with the New York Pilgrims. We would be interested in knowing where.

Praise God for His goodness!!! Thank you for sharing on your blog. Children are such a blessing, and do such cute and funny things!! Joseph has such a good example to follow, so it's not a bad thing that he's imitating you!!! Keep up the good work, and may God bless you and help you during your time of deputation.
