September Prayer Letter

September 2012

Dear Praying Friends,

I first met him over two and a half years ago and at that time he let me know that he would NOT be attending services at our church.  He was polite, but very firm on that fact.  I prayed for him but never expected to see him at our church.  Yet the first Sunday of this month, he walked in to services and brought with him a 71 year old friend! They are both lost but seemed to enjoy the services and promised to return this next Sunday.  It is amazing to see the power of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of sinners and how only He can draw them to Christ when we are powerless to effect any change!  Praise the Lord!

As another way to get involved in our city and open up more opportunities for personal evangelism, we are offering free English classes at our church building during the week.  We used this method of evangelism in Lithuania years ago and it seems to be bearing fruit already.  Many have called inquiring about the classes and two are coming this Sunday to register. 

Thank you, in advance, for your faithful prayers for this new ministry, for the new visitors and for the city of Lagos.  It is our honor to represent you here in southern Portugal.

Sowing the seed,

Mark Hale
