Dec 2013 Prayer Letter
“Giving thanks unto the Father… who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” Col 1:12-14
Dear friends and fellow laborers,
We trust this season finds you rejoicing together with us as we remember the wonder of God freely giving us his Son for our pardon! The world may not know what they celebrate, but surely we do!
Due to the shortage of meetings this time of year, we were able to spend a few weeks in NY, visiting our home church. Several of our missionary families are in town at the same time, and we’ve enjoyed being able to get together with them. We also have been able to spend time at our “second home” in the Rochester area, Walker Bible Baptist Church. I mentioned in the last letter that I had a good witness with a family while visiting the bus route with this church, and while we were back in town, we found them here! They have been able to get to services most of the time since our meeting, which is excellent! Praise the Lord!
Speaking of our home church, we have officially moved into the new sanctuary, just in time for the Christmas concert! Through the generous gifts of many people, we finished the building for around half the typical building cost! This made a great visual illustration for Pastor Cammilleri to bring the message of Christ’s free gift to the many visitors we had at the concert.
Since I left my full-time job in June, we presented our ministry in 18 churches, covering about 11,500 miles. We currently have 21 meetings scheduled for next year, and are working and praying for 100. Also, we are still anticipating some support coming through after the first of the year, when everyone gets the new budget cycle going. Thank you all for your prayers and support!
Serving the King of Kings,
The Reed Family
