Dear Friends and Partners, We praise God for each of you! Here are some recent activities and answers to your prayers.
Atlanta House Church Baptism Last Sunday we celebrated Nathan Langley and Eric Morris’s eternal life in Christ with their baptism in the Chattahoochee. The water was cold but our spirits warmed by their obedience and love for the Lord Jesus. We celebrated with a cookout afterwards. My mother, Alice Nelson, graced us with her presence too! She’s on the far left of the group photo.
Riverbend Community Church Danelle and I had a delightful time in Columbia, SC a few weeks ago. We spoke to Riverbend about our ministry highlights, the most recent being our fantastic regional house church conference, and then Mike Bledsoe & the church prayed for us. We enjoyed meeting new friends and catching up with many others we have known since our years in Clemson. It was encouraging to see them faithfully following Christ after all these years. Praise God! We love you all!
Word Play (for Jerald Rush and all who like clean humor!) The Bible says, “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 May these help you smile today…
1. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering. 2. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery. 3. She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still.
Virginia Tech Conference Tony and Desire’ Pierson invited Danelle and I to speak to the students and the church November 7-8 about relationships. Please pray for us to rely on the Spirit to prepare. Pray for everyone to have teachable hearts and act on the truth they hear – to become more secure in Christ.
1) For Nathan and Eric to continue to obey Christ and for God to use them to make other disciples.
2) VT Conference – For God to use Danelle and I to meet the needs of all who attend the conference.
Your friendship and support bring us great joy!
Steve and Danelle
