Dear faithful praying and supporting friends,
We wanted to start out by apologizing for the long time in between updates. It seems that time slips by us before we know it so often. However, we are VERY excited to report on all that God has been doing and that we look forward to in the future. We only ended up with the one Vacation Bible School for the summer. However, it was a great blessing and joy to serve at Temple Baptist Temple alongside another evangelist couple. Throughout the week, there were a number of teens and young people who made profession of faith. We mostly helped with games and logistics, however, I was also able to preach on Wednesday to the adults in their regular Bible study and on Thursday night to the teens. We also saturated the area with fliers and invitations to the week of meetings. I was able to preach several Sundays doing pulpit supply as well as special events. All but one Sunday in September was booked. We praise God for providing meetings and for the lives that have been impacted for eternity!
While we were in Deleware, Karyn was also able to teach a children’s class on Sunday morning. I preached a men’s prayer breakfast on Saturday, and all day on Sunday was preaching as well.
Looking ahead, God seems to be opening more and more doors. There is one church who is prayerfully considering supporting our ministry on a monthly basis as one of their missionaries, so we will be attending their missions conference and sharing our ministry and the burdens that God has put on our heart for this ministry of serving various churches and reaching the lost abroad. Please pray for wisdom in presenting the ministry and for God’s clear direction. We are excited about our future in evangelism.
Last week, we were blessed to be at Riggles Gap Bible Church alongside Evangelist Dan Brubaker for their revival services. My wife and I were able to conduct the children’s services for the week. We had a good number of kids each night and praise the Lord for what He did! They seemed to be receptive and also worked hard to invite friends throughout the week. Dan also had tremendous services with a special salvation emphasis on Friday. Please pray for lasting fruit from this week of meetings.
Please continue to pray for the housing needs that we have and that God would clearly guide us as to what step He would have us to take. If there is ever any way we can serve your church, please as always feel free to contact us.
Joyfully serving our risen Saviour,
Stephen, Karyn and Israel Wrachford
