“But Saul was going everywhere to destroy the church. He went from house to house, dragging out both men and women to throw them into prison. But the believers who were scattered preached the Good News about Jesus wherever they went.” (Acts 8:3-4)
Dear Fellow Ambassadors,
Saul persecuted the early church – binding them and hauling them off to prison. How did they respond? Did they give up? Did they run away in fear? No! They continued to preach the good news about Jesus as He had commanded them. Everyone, not just the leaders, were active in spreading the word. They were all ambassadors! Their love for God and for lost souls drove them on, even in the face of death.
What effect does Christ’s love have on your relationships with unbelievers? How can you be more effective in evangelism? Here are some ways we have spread the gospel through our church and ministry…
Tworek Wedding Thank you for praying for the wedding of Danelle’s niece two weeks ago. Kelsey and Eddie’s ceremony glorified Christ and the gospel was clearly presented. We also had many gospel conversations at the reception. Please pray for this new couple to continue to seek God. Pray for them to follow up people who had spiritual interest sparked from their wedding.
Atlanta House Church We are excited to report that all three of Eric and Sarah Morris’s children (in photo below) have made professions of faith in Christ and want to be baptized. September 9th we are going to lake for the baptism and a picnic to celebrate their new lives in Christ! “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT
Trip to NYC & Massachusetts. Danelle and I leave this Saturday for New York to visit our daughter, Julie, and her family. We will take our granddaughters, Jasper and Emilia, to my brother’s cabin in Massachusetts for 5 days. Ask God to give us grace to show them Christ’s love.
1. Eddie & Kelsey Ask God to help this new couple to find good fellowship, to grow in their faith, to strengthen their love for each other, and to have wisdom for raising Eddie’s two young sons.
2. Atlanta Pray for our church to be captivated with the Lord and His love for us. Pray that we would sincerely love unbelievers, build relationships with them, and boldly share Christ as often as possible. Pray too for the baptism, September 9th, to be especially meaningful to the three Morris children.
3. NYC Family Pray for Danelle and I to have quality time with our daughter Julie and her family from August 25-September 1st. We are taking our 2 granddaughters up to Massachusetts for 5 days during this time.
Thank you for faithful support!
Steve & Danelle
