PLEASE BEGIN TO PRAY FOR KENYA CONFERENCE

Dear brothers and sisters, we cherish your intercessory prayers for the many upcoming opportunities to evangelize the lost and edify the saints of God. I have just completed a new workbook entitled ‘The Life That Glorifies God’. It is an exposition of John 15:1-9, which I will have the privilege to teach to over 600 pastors in Kenya, God willing. It is presently being translated into Swahili! Dianne and I are so very grateful for your love, your intercession and your financial support of the ministry, which our Lord has graced to us. Our prayer for you is that, “you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing him and being fruitful unto every good work”. Thank you precious friends for being co-laborers with us. Please know of our heartfelt love and gratitude.

Also, please pray for the many hurricane victims. Some of our dear friends and co-laborers have been affected by these storms. Also, we are excited and praying for the soon arrival of our new grandbaby in just a few weeks. Your

REDEEMED TO WORSHIP CONFERENCE IN BATON ROUGE

I want to share just one of the many opportunities of teaching in our own country, since our last newsletter. I was recently given the blessed privilege to teach the new and revised version of the study workbook entitled ‘Redeemed to Worship’. It was so amazing to see the church absolutely packed, with both the members and many visitors, for two ’45 minute’ sessions each evening! You can know that ‘God’s answered your prayers’ for this conference, through the personal testimony of the week from the heart of this precious pastor. Pastor Philip Guay of Providence Baptist writes, “ ‘ The Redeemed to Worship’ series could not have come at better time; both in the life of our church and in my own personal life as well. Bro. Ed took us on a guided tour, (all totally rooted in Scripture), of what it means for God’s people to ‘truly and acceptably worship Him’. God graced Bro. Ed with a special unction to preach the Word, throughout the entirety of those 11 sessions! The manifest evidence of the special presence of the Holy Spirit was keenly sensed by all. Many of both our congregation and visitors were under deep conviction and correction, as the biblical standard of a ‘life of authentic and acceptable worship’ was held high before us. The Spirit empowered my dear brother Ed in such a way, that the Word of God thundered from our pulpit each and every session! All of our people and the many visitors responded with a powerful demonstration of the love and appreciation for this servant of God. We look forward to the time when Bro. Ed can return to us, to take us through another one of his workbook series.”
