October, 2017

Dear prayer partners,

Since our last prayer letter, the Lord has given us opportunity to  present NYC Muslim Missions in numerous churches.  In Iowa, we visited churches in Bussey, Des Moines, Corydon, Pleasantville, again in Des Moines, Ottumwa, Red Oak, and Osceola.  During that time the Lord also led us to Lincoln and Plattsmouth, Nebraska, and also to Kansas City.  We then presented at Loves Park, IL before returning east to churches in Colonial Beach, VA; Woodford, VA; Kings Mountain, NC; Chesapeake, VA; Havelock, NC, and Newport, NC.

Every single church has truly been a blessing.  Here are a few illustrations of God’s blessing through His people:  We were thrilled to present our burden in the church in Osceola, IA where my brother pastors and where my parents attend.  It was great to see my grandparents there as well that evening!  While in Iowa, we were blessed to be invited to a family fellowship week with Bethany Baptist Church.  In Omaha we had the opportunity to go to the university to visit the largest collection of articles and books about Afghanistan.  I was able to purchase a couple of items for preparing to learn the Dari language.  It was great to get to be at the church where my wife was raised (Windsor Baptist Church in Loves Park, IL)!  Passing through Indianapolis, we were surprised to see how many Islamic centers can be found especially in the northern half of the city.  Pray for Indianapolis.  It was also a blessing to get to be at our own church Emmanuel Baptist Church for missions conference.  When we were in an eight-day missions conference at Good News Baptist, we were showered with the church’s generosity. This included payment for our upcoming training opportunities next year, diapers and gas money.  Also, we were blessed with the opportunity to visit the Southwide Baptist Fellowship in Murfreesboro, TN.  Praise the Lord for the contacts he gave us when we were there for Tom Wallace representing Missions to Muslims Network.

It is exciting to be a part of missions conferences and to share our burden for the Muslims.  Churches around the country are excited about serving Christ and reaching souls for Him.  The Lord has been so good to us!  God’s people have encouraged us in many ways.  Also, we praise the Lord for those who have been able to partner with us financially in assistance to get us to New York City.  Praise the Lord for Bellingham Baptist Church and Harvest Baptist Church in partnering with us in recent months!

Please pray for safety as we travel, for us to be a blessing to the churches and for the Lord to connect us with the churches where He wants us to be.

Thank you for your prayer and financial support!  

Tim, Kristin, Anna Faith, & Jr.
