Nelson Newsletter - March 2009

Running Camp plans crystallized during last week’s meetings with Alan Parish and the coach, Vladimir Fedorets. God is answering our prayers! The two camps will take place June 8-12 and 15-20. Please pray for the students to attend the camp that God wants. Pray for them and their parents to be open to the gospel. Pray that God would assemble the team of Americans to come and serve these students.
House Church continues to grow as the Spirit of God changes lives! Danelle and I are thrilled with the small group (13 people are involved) that meets in our home every Sunday. This past month two unbelievers, Victoria and Eugene, have attended our meetings. Pray for their salvation. Ask God to empower the believers to lay down their lives for others, and to start new house churches in their homes. We are asking God to bring revival here!
Kostia and I had an excellent time last Saturday talking about knowing God personally as we ran and walked in the park. We met through our English club several years ago and have become close friends. He is a lawyer whose father deserted them, his only brother died in an accident and his mother, with whom he lived, passed away last June. Kostia has shared with me his hardships, as well as his dreams. Please pray for God to open Kostia’s eyes to his need for Christ.

Additional Prayer Requests “but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God.” Acts 12:5
> Pray for the folks in our house church to multiply; lead others to Christ and make disciples.
> Please pray for our European staff retreat April 8-12 to be lead by God and building to all.
> Pray for Danelle and I to effectively disciple leaders. We are mentoring house church leaders.
> Pray for many new churches to begin as a result of our preaching the gospel in other cities.

Thank you for standing with us financially and prayerfully,

Steve & Danelle
