So what has been happening in Newport? About a month ago a man, whom we will call David, was saved! He promised us that he would come to church; but he didn't know when because he works a lot. When he first answered the door he didn't seem very receptive; but when my husband asked him if he wanted to know that he could go to heaven, he said yes. They sat there and he listened. We soon started to see tears running from his eyes. (If you knew David, you would know that this was not normal.) He prayed and asked the Lord into his heart that day. Two weeks later he came to church and brought his wife. They came back that evening, and the next Sunday, and the next Sunday evening (along with thier daughter and granddaughter). Well, to make a long; but exciting story short, David's wife prayed to recieve the Lord last Sunday and they both plan to be baptised soon. Isn't that wonderful! David and his wife (we will call her Abigail) have been experiencing a lot of heart-ache lately. He recently found out he has lukemia, he recieved a serious injury at work, they have some financial struggles, and their children (one of them and her "spouse" and child) live with them, etc, etc, etc. I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do in their lives.
It is great to be an instrument in God's hands to change lives and influence people.
