Dear Faithful Friends & Prayer Warriors,

Wewyn Garden City team

Welwyn Garden City GO Team

I headed out to Europe last Sunday evening for five weeks of ministry opportunities. 

I will be in Switzerland for about ten days to work with a friend who has invited me and several others to be a part of a group that will be involved in eschatological research for a book that he in the process of producing. 

After that I will be in London with a GO TEAM from Birmingham, Alabama to help with a church planting effort and then I will be in Scotland with a GO TEAM that will continue to help a church that we have been partnering with for the last four years.  Please continue to pray for us as we seek to obey the Great Commission.  We are told to go and win souls to, make disciples and to help multiply God’s church.

The three GO TEAM missions in June and July went very well.  We sensed an openness to the gospel that we have not seen before.  We have been partnered  with all three of the GO TEAM mission churches in the past and I believe that the seeds of the gospel in these communities are coming forth into fruition. 

We are working with ground that has lain spiritually fallow for sometime and often it takes a repeated effort of preparing the soil, planting the seeds, fertilizing the ground, watering and pulling weeds before we start to see fruition of the gospel.

I also believe that when God's people stand on the authority of His Word and step out in faith believing that He will produce a harvest of souls because He loves people and wants them to have eternal life.  I don't believe that the Lord has told us to go win souls, make disciples and multiply His church just to frustrate us by not blessing what He has told us to do!

Thank you for your partnership with us through prayer, giving and going. 

Your brother by His amazing grace,

Thank you for praying for the Emmanuel & Associates GO TEAMS this past summer and thanks to all those who trusted the Lord and joined one of our teams. Our GOSPEL OUTREACH TEAMS were truly blessed and also a great blessing to the believers at Minster Christian Centre in Cardiff, Prior’s Park Chapel in Tewkesbury and Headley Park Church in Bristol as they labored together for the salvation of precious souls.  There were many opportunities to share life changing truth with people as some indicated that they wanted to know Christ.  Hopefully many others are on the journey that leads them to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior!    
 

I have had many opportunities to share the gospel with many different people along the way.  On a flight to London I struck up a conversation with a young man who was born in Russia, raised in Israel and said that he was a Jewish atheist.  Upon his statement that he was an atheist and not religious, I told him that was glad that he wasn’t religious but to me life made no sense to me without God. He looked at me like he had never been challenged to think in this manner. We were able to have a short conversation but we had to part ways after we landed in London. I did give him a gospel tract that he immediately began reading as he walked away from me in the airport. I pray that he will come to know his Messiah and I hope that someday I will meet him again, if not here then in eternity. 

 
Are you equipped and always ready to share the hope that is within you?  Please pray for me to be ready and I will pray for you that the Lord might use us in the winning of souls for His glory!
