Nelson Newsletter–November 2014

“Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.” Ephesians 3:20

clip_image002The Rock Miami God did abundantly beyond what we expected with almost 200 attending our “Finding the Love of Your Life” seminar in Miami. Danelle and I were encouraged by their sincere desire to know God’s plan for relationships and marriage. We used Secure In An Insecure World as the basis for our two days of teaching. The church members, like Fernando and Lily pictured here, were most hospitable. We felt the love of Jesus through Alfred, Jerry, Freddy and all the saints! God is alive in Miami! They just celebrated 40 years of ministry this week. Pray for God to make many more followers of Jesus Christ and strong marriages throughout that city.


Pittsburgh Danelle visited her family the following weekend. God gave all of them some rich times of fellowship, lots of laughs (not a surprise if you know anything about the O’Tooles!), and much love. Thank you all for praying. Your prayers make a difference in eternity!

House Church Conference On Nov 21-23rd (this weekend!!!), our house church will join Larry and Corey Messer and their house church from Gainesville, Florida for a retreat near Savannah, GA. Matt and Jan Gordon from Gainesville, as well as Andrew Hendricks from South Carolina, will also attend. Please ask God to lead us together as we seek to know Him better and make Him known more effectively in our communities. We will spend time alone with God, enjoy our families, make new friends, and study His word together.


Grandson Isaac I finally got to meet our 9 week old grandson Isaac (his name means “he laughs”). He is beautiful! Here’s  a recent photo of the growing Shirley family.

Prayer Requests House Church Conference. (Nov. 21-23) Ask God to lead our time by His Spirit, to meet pressing needs, to transform lives and marriages, and for more laborers for the harvest in Atlanta and Gainesville. Please pray we would be encouraged and envisioned.

Thanksgiving with the Newtons. Danelle, Merry, and I will be in NYC with the Julie, Matthew, Jasper, & Dewey over Thanksgiving. Please pray that we would have a rich time, make some good memories, and all give sincere thanks to our great God and King for all His gifts!

Yours on His mission,

Steve and Danelle
