Peter Nilson, Kenya — Baptisms
Dear Prayer Partners,
Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.” 1 Thessalonians 1:3-4.
I hope you are doing well, especially during this trying time of the covid – 19 pandemic. My family and I are doing well, both spiritually and physically. The LORD continues to be faithful to us, especially during this hard time of the covid – 19 pandemic.
My family and I would like to take this high time to express our sincere appreciation, to each and every one of you, for coming alongside us in the ministry; so that together as one team, we may serve our Lord Jesus. Truly, serving together with you has enhanced the growth of the Lord’s work in Kenya. Thank you so much for partnering together with us in the ministry.
Also, I would like to let you know that our church family is growing both spiritually and numerically. Our folks are actively sharing the Gospel with the lost souls and inviting the unchurched to come and worship with us. We have a program in our church whereby the church goes to the villages to share the Gospel and to invite the community into our local assembly of believers. Through this program, we have witnessed the lost coming to Christ, and making commitments to become members of our local assembly of believers.
For this reason, many of these folks who have come to worship with us have requested to be baptized. The Lord has provided funds that we needed to build a baptistry of our own; therefore, we should be able to baptize them in the course of the next month. Praise the LORD.
Furthermore, we are raising funds to construct a multi-purpose building on the property of Tabernacle Baptist Church. This multi-purpose building shall be used for children’s church, Bible studies classes for teenagers, Bible studies classes for men, and Bible college classes for faithful men and women who are called to serve God in various ministries of the local church. This multi-purpose building shall cost us approximately $8700.00. We have received some funds toward this vital project, but we would like to be halfway to the needed amount before we begin any work on this project. If the Lord leads you to be part of this project, then you may send your financial gift, however small, to International Gospel Missions, 990 Calkins Road, Rochester, NY 14623.
Our desire is to establish a Bible college which shall be a training ground for future pastors and ministers of the faith. We have faithful men and women who are interested in studying the Word of God the way God wrote it. Our Bible college would be a place where such men shall find a place to intensively study the Word of God. Please, pray that the LORD provide funds needs to construct this building which shall be a great tool for what the LORD has called us to do. Thank you once more for your fervent prayers and support to us.
May the LORD our God bless you for your labor of love in Christ!
