2005 WCC Missions Letter

“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel.” Philippians 1:3-5
Thank you for your participation in the gospel through Woodstock Community Church missions. Your gifts have made it possible for us to reach thousands of people who are lost in darkness and sin with the good news of our Savior! We were able to send teams on mission trips to Ukraine and Honduras where they shared Christ with hundreds through English clubs and the health clinic respectively.

I was greatly encouraged last week to hear about Felix, a young Ukrainian student from our English club who got saved, who is going on as a disciple of Christ. My friend Masha, who also became a believer in my English class several years ago, said that Felix had shared some verses with her over the phone last week when she was going through a difficult time! Praise God for “fruit that remains!” John 15:16

Your gifts also made it possible for us to help Maria, a special needs child from Honduras, and to continue to proclaim the gospel through public preaching to hundreds of students at the University of Georgia. Let us pray for an even greater harvest in 2005!

May God bless you for your generous hearts motivated by your love for the lost!

Yours in our Savior’s love,

Steve Nelson
Missions Pastor
