Nelson Newsletter - May 2024


“When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”            Psalm 27:8

“And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”           Jeremiah 29:13


Dear Saints,

Atlanta House Church Our church has been seeking to know the Lord and deepen our relationship with Him through reading His word and acting on it. We are asking God to help us grow in our love for Him and people. We celebrate each person’s unique part in our seeking God. Barrie turned 71 this month! Recently, members have chosen verses about seeking God for us to read during the week. Then they lead our discussion on Sunday. We also seek the Lord through singing, the Lord’s supper, and praying for one another and unbelievers.

Three Hispanic men worked for us this week. Fernando (photo below), Saul, and little Fernando (that is what they called him), all wanted to read the Spanish version of my book, Secure In An Insecure World. Seguro en un mundo inseguro: cómo encontrar el amor de su vida. The next day, during lunch, we had a deep discussion about how to be saved and why we are eternally secure. It was refreshing to witness them seeking to know the Lord by asking sincere questions!

I also had an amazing conversation with Carter one day. He is a 17-year-old young man who is working for a lumber company. I told him how that I was proud of how hard he was working. Then I mentioned, What Is Better Than Free? Restoring the Lost Work Ethic. He said, “You wrote a book?” I went to my truck to give him a copy, but only had, Granddad’s Animal Adventures. I showed it to him and said, “This book is about how God is seeking to us. He wants a relationship with us.” Carter replied excitedly, “That gives me goosebumps! I have been seeking God! I left my friends who were a bad influence, and now I have four or five good friends who are helping me find God.” After glancing over the book he said, “My nine-year-old sister would love this book!” I said, “Here, please give it to her.” Pray for them to come to Jesus!


   Prayer & Praise

Fernando, Saul, Little Fernando, and Carter Ask God to speak to these young people as they read my book. Ask God to help them understand that salvation by grace and not by works.

Illinois & Virginia Churches David and Stephanie asked that we pray for Jeff, a member of the church in Portsmouth, who has some heart problems. They also asked that members of both churches consistently walk with God during the inconsistent summer schedules - consistently read the Word & be in fellowship.

 Our 49th Anniversary
Danelle and I celebrated by going for a walk, going to the movies, and out to dinner. We needed to stay close to home so that Danelle could assist in the birth of Merry’s baby.

Merry & Nathan’s Baby Praise God for a healthy baby girl! Thank you for praying for Merry and her baby, Emilia Alice Evans, who was born May 17th. Emilia shares a birthday with her 12-year-old cousin, Emilia Dewey Newton! Please pray for the Evans to seek God for grace to adjust to having a new-born along with their two young boys.  Thank you for praying for all these needs!

Seeking Jesus with you,

  Steve & Danelle
