Three months ago we had a spiritual renewal weekend in our church, and many of our people participated and were refreshed as we experienced the presence of God among us. The deacons of our church provided great leadership and many of our young men and ladies committed themselves to a deeper walk with the Lord. Since the Renewal Weekend, our church has been different. There is a greater sense of unity, more people volunteering to serve and a spiritual stirring among our youth.
The Lord is sending us young couples who are coming to Wilmer to become the spiritual leaders of the future, as they join with the other young couples in our church who are faithfully serving the Lord. It is exciting to talk to these who are coming and to hear how God has led them to Wilmer. I feel that we are on the cusp of some exciting things God wants to do in the church. This is a time when we need to pray and seek God’s direction as He leads us into the future.
This past Sunday we were privileged to see how God is working as we witnessed five new converts baptized, two professions of faith in Christ and several rededications to Christ. Pray for our workers and children who will be going to camp at Baldwin Baptist Camp next week. Be faithful to love others, talk with people about Christ and serve the Lord with joy--knowing that our labor is not in vain.
