Monthly update and prayer request from the Knickerbockers. Church Planters to Wilmington, DE
Knickerbocker Prayer Letter
June 2016

The Lord is Providing!

We have had the opportunity to present in three churches in the month of June. We have also had two additional churches take us on for monthly support! Praise the Lord! We are currently at 27% of our goal. This summer we have a few meetings, and starting at the end of August we have a full schedule through the beginning of November. Please continue to pray that the Lord would provide the meetings needed to reach our goal in such a shore time on deputation. 

Being a Gospel Witness in Wilmington

Soul Winning
It is a blessing to meet so many people in Wilmington every time we go there to knock on doors. Overall it seems that many people are interested in knowing more about First State Baptist Church starting. It is a blessing to open the Bible with many of these folks that have never heard the Gospel message. It breaks my heart, but also challenges me when I hear someone say, "No one has ever open the Bible to me, and showed me how I could have eternal life." 

Visiting Contacts
In the last two weeks I have received two phone calls from Wilmington residents, interested in knowing where the church is meeting. I would like to start holding services already! We must ask the Lord to give us patience. In our minds we would like to start the church yesterday, but we have confidence in the Lord's timing. Two weeks ago, my friend Alex and I spent an hour and a half with a lady in Wilmington that had many questions about what our church was going to be like. After leaving I received a text from her stating that she was looking forward to the church starting. 

Bible Study Update
In the last two update letters, we asked you to pray for us to be able to start a Bible study with Ted. After several conversation with him, he let me know that he was no longer interested in having that Bible study. He had a difficult time letting go of Catholic tradition. Continue to pray that we would stay in touch with him, and that he would come to church when we get started.
