Deputation Report

We praise the Lord for the many churches that have scheduled a meeting with us to present our burden. At the end of August we arrived in Texas with 7 meetings scheduled over the next month. We have 15  meetings scheduled within the next 3 months. It has been an encouragement to hear many pastors and churches having a burden for church planting. Thank you for your prayers as we travel many miles! We are currently at 40% of our monthly support goal. Help us pray for 5 more meetings in addition to those we already have scheduled this year. 

Date Change for the Get-Acquainted Meetings
We had to make a change for the dates of the Get-Acquainted Meetings. We moved the Monday through Thursday meetings a week earlier. The starting date of First State Baptist Church will still be April 2nd. 

New Dates for the GAM:
Monday, March 27th - Thursday, March 30th

Pray for a Meeting Place

We would like to secure of meeting place for the new church to meet in. We have been looking at many different options over the last few months. Pray for the Lord to open the door. Here is the specific areas to pray for:
- In our target location
- In an affordable building
- In a long term situation (At least for one year)

The Need for a Local Independent Baptist Church in Wilmington

The Gospel Being Proclaimed in Wilmington
There is no doubt our country needs to see a renewed push for church planting! There are many areas in our own land where the Gospel has not been proclaimed in a very long time. During our time knocking on doors in Wilmington, our hearts continue to be stirred to think that so many have never heard to Gospel. 
A Local Church must be Established in Wilmington
What must be done? A local Independent Baptist Church must be established! Herein lies the answer to our nation's greatest need! Many people may get discouraged that our land is so far removed from God and His Word that nothing can be done. But there is no better time to start churches in our country than NOW! God is interested in doing a great work in the midst of turmoil and chaos. The Lord Jesus Christ will not use a political figure to make that change, but will use His churches.
Through First State Baptist Church
The work of God is accomplished through His local churches!
It is through this new local church that those that received the Gospel in Wilmington...
- Will be baptized
- Will be taught the Word of God
- Will be trained to accomplished God's work
- Will support missionaries home and abroad
- Will grow and mature as Christians
Jesus said, "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18)
This church is "the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth." (1 Timothy 3:15)

We are humbled to be called of God to be part of His Work!
