Dominica Update

Support Ticker 66.28%
Dear Praying Friends, The Lord has blessed us with another year to serve Him and bear His precious, glorious, gospel which we have received. We are being challenged at our home church, Hampton Park Baptist Church, to be good stewards of the gospel. May God help each one of us learn more this year how we can better serve and share the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.

Praise
The Lord has opened the doors for us to share our burden for Dominica in over twenty churches so far this year. A family whose teen visited Dominica has told us they want to begin supporting us. Praise the Lord! God's blessings keep pouring in through the most unexpected ways. On my 45th birthday Martha informed me that our quiver was expanding.

I Thessalonians 2:4 But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts.
We rejoice to hear that our fellow believers at the Open Bible Church of Marigot continue faithful to the Lord. There have been some logistical difficulties with Axel and Nicky getting to every service due to some nagging transportation problems. Like every believer the folks at the Open Bible Church have their crosses to carry and temptations to overcome. Unlike our situation here in Greenville, South Carolina there is little encouragement once the church doors are closed. Every one of them face some opposition from family members and even demonic oppression. I know they will be strengthened by your prayers. The Lord is so faithful to our family and the faithful prayers of each one of you are a great encouragement to us. While Martha has not been feeling too well, as is to be expected (pun intended), the kids' home schooling has not suffered too much. Jamie is digging into her second semester at BJU. T.J., Stephanie, and Kimberly are just winding down their involvement in our church's Bible Quizzing program. Emily, David, and Daniel keep us hopping on our toes with endless energy. And Martha and I are enjoying almost every minute of it. Thank you for praying and giving to the Lord's servants. We love you, appreciate you, and thank God for your ministry to Him and to us. Joyfully Serving Christ,

Please keep Axel & Nicky Auguiste in your prayers as they continue in our shoes in Dominica which will be more than a year. They are expecting their first child. Pray for good health for Nicky and the baby and a safe delivery.
