Thank you for your prayers. Skyler’s health is stable. Pray for complete healing. Having the immune system shut off brings other health risks. He begins studying Biblical Counselling in Berlin this fall. Samantha will be graduating from High School this Spring. It is hard to believe that our babies are growing up so quickly.
Gabi, who has visited our church for over five years approached me about the Lord's Supper. I responded that we offer that to members. The following week she asked about church membership and I walked her through the scriptural standard of baptism. She soon realized that her baby baptism was meaningless as it occurred before she repented and believed in Jesus. She then stated very assertively, "Then, I want you to baptize me." God's Spirit is at work! Pray for Gabi as we walk her through discipleship.
– I started teaching a chapel service at an area middle school on Mondays. I have been breaking “the Lord’s prayer“ down for the kids. It is ironic how many self-proclaiming atheists know this portion of scripture by heart, but have not the inkling what it means.
--Our little baseball team is starting to grow. Please pray for the seeds that we plant in these young hearts. There is a spiritual battle for the next generation.
--Our back-to-school teen night was a great success with a full house and lots of songs being sung around the fire. Please pray for these young people as we meet together one Friday night each month. A group of them have started a student Bible study at the local high school. Pray with us for these future leaders.
March for Life in Berlin – I marched with Joachim Focking in Berlin at the March for Life. The darkness of the counterdemonstrations is very revealing. Our Society is so polarized. The spiritual battle lines are all too clear at such an event.
We are gearing up for the Reformation Festival. The end of October marks our 10th year of participation. It has provided many a soul-winning opportunity and established our church’s presence within the Wittenberg landscape.
Please pray for wisdom as we will be needing a new car in the future. My hope is that it will hold for another year or two. We have enjoyed the savings that our natural gas car affords and would like to stay with that fuel, but finding the right car is difficult as our car is no longer produced. It would also be nice to not have to go into debt for a newer vehicle.
Thanks so much for your support!
Paul, Chelli and the Sudbrock Kids.
