Exciting News - Update!

Many of you will remember me requesting your prayers back in September and October (update here) concerning a good friend of mine serving in a militant Islamic country. I would like to add another update with some exciting news. Here is their most recent update: Dear Partners, We have some very encouraging news to share with you. First, we know many of you have been praying for our electrician. He has made a confession of faith, and will be baptized today! Please pray his wife and father will believe soon. Also, you have been praying for a man named Nurul. If you remember, Wes visited an Islamic school in November, and was able to talk with a group of about 20 men. Nurul was one of those men. When Wes returned a few weeks later, the head of the school would not allow him to speak with Nurul, and asked him not to return. At that time we asked you to pray that God would open a way for Wes to return to the school. Last week Nurul called Wes and asked him to come back! Wes will be going tomorrow morning. Please pray this will be a fruitful visit, and that the Spirit would break down many barriers. Please rejoice with us in these two requests. Your prayers are a big part of these two things coming about! Personally, please pray for us as we are trying to deal with many frustrations in a godly way. We desire to view our frustrations as blessings from the Lord, instead of looking at them as burdens. Praise the Lord for the salvation of the electrician! Let's pray for his wife (name unknown) that the Lord will open her heart as he did with Lydia (Acts 16:14). Also, if you have not known of this dear brother, I would like to ask you to join us in praying for him and his wife (Wes and Jessica). The Lord has been doing tremendous things in the past year, and God is working through the prayers of his people and the supplication of his Spirit to see the magnification of the glorious name of Jesus through the lives of his people (Philippians 1:19). Please remember in the two specific requests especially in the upcoming days (Wes' visit with Nurul and the Spirit's breaking down barriers). Thank you.
