Dear Praying Friends,
God has continued to bless in many ways since the last update! I Just wanted to catch everyone up on what has been happening since the beginning of the year. God allowed me to have several opportunities to do pulpit supply as well as work with the youth at my home church in Dunbar Pa. Several of the young people graduated and we had a few new ones move up into the youth group.
Back in May, Karyn and I were finally married and it has been a wonderful two months of serving the Lord! Thanks for all your prayers and support throughout this time. We both officially joined Dunbar Baptist in Dunbar, Pa as our sending church following our marriage. Just a couple of weeks ago we were able to direct the VBS of our home church and see two children come to know Christ. Karyn shared the missionary story each night and I preached. The parents of one of our bus kids also accepted Christ for which we are very grateful! We also found out that there will be a new addition to our evangelistic ministry early next year Lord willing! Pray for a healthy little one in God’s will and that the young one will grow up to love and serve our Saviour! Unfortunately, the health coverage that we had arranged for will not cover her due to how soon this occurred, so please pray for wisdom regarding this situation.
Following our VBS, we went out to Troy, OH to assist that ministry alongside Evangelist Glenn Stevenson for the week. we had a good number of young people in the morning VBS and the evening teen events as well 25 or so people made profession of faith throughout the week. We were involved in the counseling as well as the program itself, and my wife led the games throughout the week. I also had the opportunity to preach to the Jr. Church on Sunday morning and my wife led singing that day. Throughout the week we helped invite teens to the evening event.
When we arrived back in Dunbar this past week, we had a deaf family visit the church that my wife and I had met several weeks prior in the park. She was able to interpret for the service and share the gospel with them. This was a direct answer to prayer!
Please pray for us that God would continue to supply meetings and we will be a blessing to churches wherever we go! It is a great joy to serve in evangelism and see young and old alike trust Christ. If there is any way we can serve you, please feel free to reach out to us, and we would be happy to help any way we can!
There is also a praise regarding our ministry, several people have chosen to support us through Dunbar Baptist Mission at our home church, so this will enable us to be a help to churches that don’t have the financial capability to have an evangelist for meetings. We are excited for the possibilities that God has! This has also been a direct answer to prayer!
Thank you everyone for your prayers, encouragement and financial support. The part you play in our ministry is a huge part of all that God is doing!
We have a few prayer requests:
- Spirit filling in everything we do
- Wisdom regarding whether we should purchase a travel trailer or not for our ministry
- we would like to take a missions trip soon. Pray that God would clearly lead us as to where He would have us to go and when.
- Pray for my wife as she carries our child and that the Lord would supply the needs.
- Pray that the parents who were saved will come to church.
Joyfully Serving our Risen Saviour,
Stephen and Karyn Wrachford
