WOW!!!! What a great finish we had to 2019. The day started off basically like any other Sunday with a few exceptions. We had some new banners up in different locations of the building with our theme for the year, United In Faith, some small journals, and new pens so that we could encourage everyone to work hard to have unity in the church in both our doctrine and deeds.
Things were going well when in the middle of Sunday School I notice a large group of people coming toward the community center we are renting. At first, I wasn’t sure they were coming to the church. I thought maybe they were going to the open air market just behind us. However, I noticed they were really over dressed to go to the market. Then all of sudden I recognized two people. A man and a lady that have visited the church a few times were in the group. They had been married the day before and came to church with about 20 of their friends and family that had came for the wedding.
Then Sunday night we had a special Christmas concert with Erica and our children and a gospel presentation that was presented by three of the young men in the church. You can see part of this on my facebook. Sunday night we had nine visitors. We are thankful for the Lord’s blessing on this special Sunday and are praying for and expecting great things in 2020.
Please continue to pray with us and considering making a gift to help us purchase a building. Yesterday the building we were in had no power because of an electrical problem, but there was nothing we could do, but adjust and move forward. We are thankful for the power of the Lord that was still evident. We have received three gifts in the last two weeks for a total of $1270 of the $100,000 that we are raising.
If you would like to make a gift and help Grace Baptist Church have its own property you can send all gifts to our missions agency, Macedonia World Baptist Missions at the address listed below:

As always thank you so much for your prayers and support. We are praying for you as well. We pray that this year will be the greatest year in your lives and churches and that you will see the Lord use you to do great things and to continue to send the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth.
