Pray for the Bennetts in Australia as they with God's help and for His glory are seeking to establish: Western Plains Baptist Fellowship, and Gilgandra Baptist Fellowship as New Testament Baptist churches.
Dear Prayer Partners,
Psalm 119:135 "Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes."
C. H. Spurgeon in the Treasury of David comments on this verse "Oppressors frown, but do thou smile. They darken my life, but do thou shine upon me, and all will be bright. The Psalmist again declares that he is God's servant, and he seeks for no favour from others, but only from his own Lord and Master. "And teach me thy statutes." This is the favour which he considers to be the shining of the face of God upon him. If the Lord will be exceeding gracious, and make him his favourite, he will ask no higher blessing than still to be taught the royal statutes. See how he craves after holiness; this is the choicest of all gems in his esteem. As we say among men that a good education is a great fortune, so to be taught of the Lord is a gift of special grace. The most favoured believer needs teaching; even when he walks in the light of God's countenance he has still to be taught the divine statutes or he will transgress." Oh God, "Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes."
During the months of October and November we will be showing in Gilgandra the videos, A Thief in the Night, A Distant Thunder, Image of the Beast, and The Prodigal Planet. The dates they will be shown are the 6th and 20th of October and the 10th and 24th of November. Handouts will be personally given out plus a couple of posters will be placed in store windows. Pray for the unsaved who we trust will attend that God’s Spirit will work in their hearts "repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ." Acts 20:21.
When there is a fifth Sunday in a month we have a combined service in Dubbo with the Gilgandra fellowship. Phyllis brought Jeanette, who is mentally slow, with her the fifth Sunday in September. Jeanette too is an aboriginal and usually attends the Assembly of God in Gilgandra. She is not saved and after the service asked to keep the Bible we gave her to use during the service. This brings us to two requests. One, please pray for Jeanette’s salvation and Two, the need for inexpensive King James Bibles. These would serve a two fold use. One, they would be placed on the table for those first time attendees to use during the service and two, as a gift for those who do not have a Bible.
Please continue to pray for the following people who have not yet trusted Christ as Saviour.
1, Bob and Elizabeth - He is Uniting Church and she is Roman Catholic
2. Reg - Church of England
3. Mark - nominal Roman Catholic
4. Robyn - Roman Catholic
5. Peter and Celina - practicing Roman Catholic
Each of these have received one or more gospel tracts. Remember, James 5:16 "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
Before we close we want to remind you to send your financial gift to: Bible For Today Baptist Church, 900 Park Avenue, Collingswood, New Jersey 08108. They have been so gracious and you will want to see the new receipt they send acknowledging your gift. It is maroon and blue with our photo on it. Quite impressive! We once again thank you for your faithfulness in praying and giving. Psalm 126:3, "The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad."
Your Servants for the cause of Christ,
David and Pam Bennett
Mark 16: 15 "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
