Bro Martin, Julie, Jordan and Joy had a very busy Sunday. Jalisa has been in Delta Junction helping Sis Vicki Myrick with her newborn twins while Bro Jared is away for a little over a week. Jalisa will be returning to the family this evening via airplane. Please pray for her safety.
They had around 60 people at Hope Church on Sunday morning. Bro Martin preached a message about “Jesus, the Savior” with the points 1) The reality of sin 2) The ruin by sin 3) The rescue from sin. Bro Martin took his text from Matthew 1:21 "Thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” and preached one of the most direct warnings about sin that he had preached there. A number of people raised their hands, and one lady came forward. After praying she asked for a cd of the message to hear it "over and over all week."
Regina*, whom we shared about in last week's update, came back this Sunday and shared with Bro Martin, "It's worked all week. I've been trying to forgive my mother for 4 years, and couldn't do it. But remember last Sunday I did. It's been good all week.” We praise God for the work He has done in Regina’s* heart!
Bro. Martin is filling in on Sunday afternoons at a neighboring Pentecostal church while the Pastor is away on vacation. Bro. Martin shared a message on “The Fiery Trial of Faith” and several said it was just what they needed. They had a really good service and time around the altars.
Bro. Martin has been looking for a bus for easier transportation of the people to and from church. They found a reasonably priced one in the area. Before they can proceed further, Bro Martin needs to get his CDL license. He is planning to take the written test today. Please pray for God’s will to be done in this situation.
Thank you for your faithful prayers for Hope for the Home Ministries.
May God continue to bless and keep you, our dear friends!
