Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the work here in Norman. We are planning to begin Sunday morning services on February 14. Please be in prayer regarding this. We still could use some help with child care. We need help in other areas as well. We have plans to distribute flyers, door to door, on Saturday, March 19, two Saturdays before Easter. If you or someone you know would be willing to help us in any way please let me know. 

Some of the statistics from our work of the previous month are listed below:

Contacted approximately: 107
Discipleship: 16
Shared the Gospel: 13
Professions of faith: 5
Re dedication: 1
Benevolence: 1

Chris has started a small group bible study with two young men with a view toward discipleship. One of these young men came and played the piano for us recently. Chris also recently attended church planter training in Conway, AR.  We both were able to attend a local two-day evangelism conference.

This is just a thought on evangelism: Are you around people from Jerusalem or Athens? Do the people that you interact with have a Biblical background or a secular background? Do they know something about the Bible or do we just assume they do? Paul took a different approach with the people of Athens than Peter did in Jerusalem when presenting the gospel. We live in an ever changing secular society that for many have no understanding of the God of the Bible. The gospel doesn’t change but the method of delivery must. We must consider who we are talking to and adjust our method of approach accordingly.

Personal interest Stories: It is always exciting to meet new people and to be able to talk to them about spiritual matters. Here are a few of our encounters this month:

  • A 27 yr old young mother made a profession of faith
  • A 39 yr old father made a profession of faith
  • A 20’s young mother and her 20’s boyfriend both made professions of faith
  • A 19 yr old young lady made a profession of faith and her dad made a re dedication; I have been given the opportunity to start disciplining these two

As always, thank you again for your encouragement, financial and prayer support. If you are in Norman on a Sunday evening come and visit us. We meet at 5:00 p.m. at 724 Fairway Dr.
