My brethren, fellowcitizens, soldiers, and labourers in the Lord,
I trust this letter finds you all rejoicing in the Lord, and growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. We have been on the road now for several weeks, and marvel at God's care demonstrated though his people. He has met our needs every step of the way, and secured more praying friends for us and the ministry.
"I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning." Psalm 130:5, 6
Waiting. For those of you who don't know yet, we are waiting on the arrival of our second son. Christian Asher LeFevre is due December 16th. Please keep our family in your prayers, Hannah and the baby especially. Very soon Hannah will have to come off the road, resting until the baby's birth. Also, keep us in your prayers, as we have now applied for our Bulgarian visas. We have been informed that the entire process will take close to six months. This starts the countdown clock for our departure. Please pray for us, and help us believe for the support we lack, and for the finances required for a vehicle once we arrive in country.
"Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified." Psalm 140:16
Rejoicing. We have received word from our missionaries in country, that this last month saw one hundred new believers baptized. What a blessing to hear of former Muslims publicly and unashamedly professing their faith in Christ! Continue to pray for the work overseas, our believers, both new and old, and our missionary families laboring to convert the unsaved, and strengthen the converted.
"...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly…" James 5:16, 17
Praying. We would like to thank each and everyone of you for praying for us. Your prayers of faith, asking God on our behalf, and believing for the answers, have brought us this far. We earnestly beseech you to keep on praying and believing God for us. We are conscious that all that has been gained thus far, has been granted by prayer. And we are doubly conscious of all the prayer we will need as we begin this transition. The Lord knows what we need, and what we will need as our departure draws close. "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 18:19
May the Lord bless you all. You are in our prayers.
Because of a living Saviour,
The William LeFevre Family
