We just finished a revival meeting in Michigan. I preached Thursday through Sunday. The people were very receptive and the Lord gave me liberty to preach. This church was started by Geoff Miller and his family in 2010. The attendance is already in the high fifties and they have a strong missions and church-planting emphasis. Judy spoke at a Ladies meeting on Saturday afternoon and made a hit with the women speaking on the subject of fulfillment.
Included here is an excerpt from a kind note I received from Pastor Miller today.
“Your fellowship, friendship and preaching of The Word was refreshing not only to me, but I believe also to our people. One of our men who was saved a few months ago and needs to identify w/ Christ in baptism called me yesterday and spoke of some of the details of your Sunday morning message and then confessed his need for baptism and also seeing the will of God regarding his participation in our door to door witnessing. Praise the Lord!“
Yes, I say, “Praise the Lord,” as well. Bible Baptist Church was a special blessing for us. Good preparation was given to every detail of the meeting in advance. I was reminded of a quote I heard from my friend Mark Jacobs: “Proper, prior preparation prevents poor performance.” It certainly was true in this case.
Judy and I are getting ready to drive to Temecula, California for the February GIBF Meeting. I ask you to pray that we will have a safe journey and that the opportunities that we have to minister for the Lord along the way will all be fruitful and helpful to the churches.
I Cor. 15:58
The Cytacki family is helping out as they are “between churches.” It is their goal to plant another church as a mission from Bible Baptist Church at some time in the future. Their son, Darryl, plays the piano in the services.
