Dear Praying Friends,
As this year is coming to a close, we are reminded that life is short. It is imperative that we spend it proclaiming the Gospel of Christ to a lost and dying world.
“For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”
I Peter 1:24, 25
We had an exciting summer with the New York Summer Evangelism Team. What a privilege to be able to give out the Gospel throughout New York City! Through much prayer and consideration, we have made some changes to the future of this ministry. This coming summer we will be starting the Urban Church Planting Experience: a six week ministry for young men who are called to urban church planting. This will involve 3 weeks of mentoring and meeting with church planters here in New York, and interviewing church planters from across the country. The last 3 weeks will be spent with the New York pastors gaining first hand experience in church planting, as well as the everyday duties of a pastor. We have had several young men express interest in joining our team this summer. Please be in prayer for God’s will concerning our team members.
We are looking forward to a great rest of the year. In November, we will be having our annual Fall Fun Fest, an outreach to neighborhood children and their parents. Last year, we were able to get in contact with several new families through this outreach. Please pray that we will see fruit from this labor again this year.
As we enter this time of Thanksgiving, we would like to say “THANK YOU” for your faithful prayer and support. The success of missions does not rest solely upon the missionary, but also upon those that are faithful in their support. We are encouraged to know that we have so many godly people who are praying for us. You all are such a blessing. Thank you! May God bless you as you continue to serve Him where He has placed you!
Daniel, Maggy, Havilah & Ian Klaus
