Praise Report: September has certainly been a month to remember! In our last letter, we shared the wonderful story of how we met Tom and his wife, Jo, in front of our church building one afternoon as they were looking for Pokemon. We invited them to come to church. Over the next couple of weeks, Tom got saved! Since then, we have been praying for Jo to be saved as well. This past week, while at the mechanic’s, Richie received a phone call from Tom, and he asked him to come by their house because Jo was ready to get saved. Immediately, he went and shared with her how to be forgiven, and Jo prayed to accept Jesus as her Saviour! Praise the Lord! Please be in prayer for their 18 year old daughter, Abby, to get saved.
On another exciting note, we held our first baptismal service at Ebenezer Baptist during a Sunday night. We were blessed to baptize two people—our son Briton, and a girl named Chloe. Chloe was saved at camp a year ago. Briton, on August 5, after the evening services, told us that he needed to be saved, and he prayed to accept Christ! It was an amazing service to say the least. With all the visiting friends and family, we had over 60 in attendance!
Project Update: Last month we shared in our letter a special project need to replace the plastic coverings for our stained glass windows. We are so excited to share that the finances were provided, and we were able to get the project completed. The difference is drastic. Thank you so much for helping meet this need.
The night after the baptismal service, our daughter Bella slammed the car door on her thumb and pretty much crushed it. After a few trips to the hospital, she is now on the mend. Please pray for it to heal properly. Also pray for our Harvest Celebration outreach event on Saturday, October 13th, and Sunday, the 14th. The schools allowed us to give close to 800 flyers to all their students to come. Along with that, our church family has been inviting everyone and anyone to come.
We are praying that many will get saved, and this will be an event we can build on for years to come.
Serving Christ together, Richie, Missy, Briton and Isabella Orrick
