“So the wall was completed on the twenty-fifth of the month Elul, in fifty-two days. When all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations surrounding us saw it, they lost their confidence; for they recognized that this work had been accomplished with the help of our God.” Nehemiah 6:15-16
Dear Partners on “The Wall,”
Thank you for “standing with us on the wall” as the Lord uses all of us to build His church! It is a great work!!! Here are some recent answers to your prayers…
Earlier this month, Danelle & I had a wonderful time at the retreat in Clemson with Brian Bridgeman and the students. We looked at what the Bible teaches about our new identity in Christ and as members of the body of Christ (the church) and the impact that has on our lives. Please pray for Brian and his wife, Miriam, as they build young disciples. Pray too for these students to grow to be faithful workers on the wall for Christ.

Atlanta House Church
The saints in our church are learning how to support and encourage one another through life’s changes and challenges. “Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Danelle and continue to build into Abel and Francesca by reading the Bible with them weekly. They love it and so do we! Pray for them to become contagious Christians.
Worshiping the Lord together with songs
1. Clemson Ministry Pray for the students to apply the truth from our retreat by being more devoted to one another. Pray they would love students who aren’t Christians yet. Ask God to save many more.
2. Atlanta Church Pray for Abel & Francesca to love God and read His work daily. Pray for them to grow in their love for unbelievers - including their family.
3. Mother Please pray for my dear mother, Alice, who is turning 92 March 13th, and is scheduled to have knee replacement March 28th. Ask the Lord to keep her healthy enough to have the surgery, and for it to enable her to live without the pain and be more mobile. Thank you very much!
We are yours in Christ’s unfailing love,
Steve & Danelle
