Dear Family and Friends,
We want to thank you all for your prayers and financial support these last few months. We hope you are all doing well!
These last few months, Jacob has been traveling to raise support. Our support level is at 95%. We are praising God for His goodness towards us.
During the months of November, December, and January, Jacob travelled to 4 states and had the opportunity to present at 6 churches. These churches were a huge blessing!
As the month of January ends, we are officially done with full time deputation! It was a fun and rewarding experience, but now it’s time to get to work.
Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, Jacob has been doing Bible studies through Facebook and our YouTube channel for the Cocopah Teens and the Quechan people. We have a few watching but pray that more will do so. Lydia has been writing letters, contacting people, and mailing out devotionals and Gospel materials to the Cocopah ladies. Please pray for several who have relapsed into substance abuse.
We are hoping and praying that the Reservations will reopen soon. There are a lot of Cocopah contacting us about church requesting that we pick them up for service. Unfortunately, we are not able to pick up anyone for church until the COVID-19 cases on the reservation go down. This has been heavy on our hearts. Please continue to pray with us that they will reopen soon!
Also, keep our new church plant (New Haven Baptist Church Quechan in Winterhaven, California) in your prayers!
We want to specifically thank everyone who gave towards our building fund! We were able to raise over $50,000 for the purchase of the building and repairs. Praise the Lord! In two weeks, we should own a building!!! We can’t wait to see how the Lord uses this new church to reach the lost for Jesus Christ!
While starting this new work, we will continue working with the Cocopah Teens and assisting Pastor Veldhuis as well as having a Sunday afternoon service for the New Haven church plant.
For the ones who do not support us, we would ask you to pray about doing so. For those who are unable to support, thank you for being our warriors in prayer!
