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 Friends in Christ Jesus,
Nahum 1: 7 "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him." Matthew Henry in commenting on this verse said "The same almighty power that is exerted for the terror and destruction of the wicked is engaged, and shall be employed, for the protection and satisfaction of his own people; he is able both to save and to destroy." Hebrews 7: 25 "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them."
Autumn is here and the weather is almost perfect for walking the neighbourhoods and doing letter box tract distribution. Praise the Lord for this freedom! We do not have a new gospel to tell but continue to proclaim the old fashioned Bible gospel of, "how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15: 3, 4. Charles Spurgeon said "I cannot agree with those who say that they have 'new truth' to teach. The two words seem to me to contradict each other; that which is new is not true. It is the old that is true, for truth is as old as God Himself." Isaiah 55: 11 says Godís Word "shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
We would ask you to continue praying for the salvation of Mark, Ian, John, Bob and Elizabeth, and others we personally give a tract to (which includes clerks who serve us in stores etc.). Also remember to pray for the spiritual growth of Jim and Margaret, Jon and Lynne, and for us.
In mid - April the antenna at WAR FM went on the blink and it took two weeks to obtain another one and get it up and running. We therefore missed two Friday and Sunday programmes. Now we are back on air! As far as if any one is listening to our programmes we know that some Seven Day Adventists listen for they brought several of their Adventist books on prophecy into the studio for David to read a few months back. Well, after the new antenna was installed and our first Friday back on air, a lady we had never met before walked into the WAR FM building. Pam left the studio to greet her and was with her for almost half an hour. After the lady left and Pam came back into the studio she informed me the lady was from South Australia and was travelling around the various states visiting pastors. She had made contact with all the pastors in Gilgandra but me. She informed Pam she would be attending our services that Sunday. She had given Pam a copy of SATURDAY OR SUNDAY? WHY NOT ASK GOD? She told Pam we were all heading to the same place but she desired for me to read this paper and wanted my input that coming Sunday. The title and content of the paper immediately gave what denomination she was but I took this as from the Lord and prepared a message for His people on why the Lordís churches gather for worship on the first day of the week. The lady never showed up to hear my "input" but I presented the message from Godís Word that Lordís Day. The message was a help to Jim and he asked for a copy of the notes as he said he is sometimes asked that question as Gilgandra has quite a few Seven Day Adventists. The Lord does bring some interesting people into our lives, doesnít He? When we lived in Sydney we often had a Roman Catholic Brother visit our services. He said he agreed with us that salvation was by grace through faith alone but he liked the outward ceremonies associated with the Roman Church. He eventually left the Roman Church but joined the high church of England as a Brother. He would not let go of those outward ceremonies! God does bring some personalities into oneís life that makes it interesting, doesnít He?
It was also in April that we had the monitor to our desk top computer go up in smoke. David was setting at the desk typing some work when he heard a sizzling sound and looked up to see smoke coming from the top of the monitor (which by the way was not caused by his typing too fast). Fortunately we also have a lap top so the work needing the use of a computer was not put off. Now we must make a decision whether to spend the funds for a new monitor or not. So far that decision has been to wait.
A big thank you to those who remembered Davidís sixty second birthday. Davidís birth isnít listed anywhere (as far as we know) as an historical event but the 14th of April was an eventful day in history. It was on the 14th of April 1865 that President Abraham Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theatre by John Wilkes Booth. It was also on the 14th of April, in 1989, that the 1,100,000,000th Chinese was born and sadly most of those to this day have never heard the gospel! There is no charge for that little bit of knowledge.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support and Godís very best as we;
Serve the Saviour with you,
David and Pam Bennett
