It has been a very long time since I have updated my blog. Thank you to everybody who has hung tight with us despite the long layoff between posts. Things have been busy here at Bryant Pond Baptist Church. The Lord has given us good services over the last two months and we are thankful for that. In October we conducted "operation saturation" and were able to distribute door-hangar bags with John/Romans, Bible tracts and invitations for our church. We successfully canvassed all of Bryant Pond. We are trusting the Lord that He will use this in His time. At the end of October we hosted missionary Larry Strout. We have been supporting his ministry in Argentina for decades. Yes, you read that right, decades. He and his wife Melissa have been on the mission field since 1974. Their ministry is preaching the gospel, church planting and training up local pastors for those churches. Brother Strout is often asked when he will be retiring. His answer, "Well, we have another church we need to plant in...." what a great answer! He is not looking at retiring it, he is looking at re-firing it! This month we have been very busy doing some work projects at the church. We are now finished with our foyer and it came out very good. We are now praying about putting everything in order to begin the big work on the church building. Please continue to pray for us about these decisions. This work will literally cost tens of thousands into the hundreds of thousands of dollars for our church. It all starts with a good foundation. (kind of applicable to life...huh?) We are looking forward to hosting the December Plant and Root Maine rally meeting on the 11th at 7pm. We hope to see you there. Well, that is it for now. Remember, if there is ever anything we can do for you, please contact us at www.bryantpondbaptist.org God bless!
