December Prayer Letter
The Knickerbocker Family to Wilmington, DE

Another Year to Serve the Lord!

We praise the Lord for the work He has done this past year, and we look forward to see what He will do in this coming year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our co-laborers, supporting churches, friends, and family that continually pray for us as we follow the Lord. 

Afternoon Services

The Lord opened the door for us to start services once a week on Sunday afternoons. 
Our First Sunday
On our first service on Sunday, December 11th we had a total attendance of 59, with 11 visitors from the Wilmington area. We are currently meeting every Sunday afternoons at 2 pm. In these last four weeks we have seen 23 visitors attend the services of First State Baptist Church. 
Continued Meetings
We will be having Sunday afternoon services every week until March 26th. April 2nd will be our official starting date with services as follows:
Sunday School - 10:00 am
Sunday Morning - 11:00 am
Sunday Evening - 6:00 pm
Wednesday Evening - 7:00 pm

Baby Melanie Knickerbocker
We thank the Lord for the blessing of another child. On January 4th, 2017 at 3:27 pm the Lord gave my wife and I the responsibility to raise another child for His glory. Justine is currently recovering well, and Melanie is doing well!
Just as the excitement and anticipation that comes with having a new baby, there is excitement and anticipation in the birth of a new church. Jesus said that He would build His church! We look forward to see what the Lord will do in this year 2017!

25,000 John & Romans

Pray that we would be able to get all 25,000 John & Romans out in the five weeks leading up to the start of First State Baptist Church. We will begin distribution on the last week of February. We are praying that through this distribution, people will come to know Christ, and that the Word of God will be read!
