Lonnie Blount March 2014 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,
We’re rejoicing about our preparation trip! I’ll be in Bancroft, Ontario for almost two weeks in April, which will include preaching for two Sundays. We’re begging God’s power for this trip, especially as I preach on Resurrection Sunday. We’re also asking Him to open doors of soul winning, visitation, encouragement, and preparations in starting the new church. I’ll be ministering and praying with a precious core of God’s people who have for many years been longing for an independent Baptist church in their area. Additionally, we’ve scheduled a meeting with a well informed Canadian Pastor who will be advising us on the legal matters of living and ministering in Canada. I’m prayerfully anticipating a fruitful time in the Lord with these dear Canadians. We appreciate you joining us in praying for this important trip!

Along with those who have already committed to helping us with this new work, others have expressed a keen interest in being a part as well. Because the closest independent Baptist church is nearly two hours away, these people are particularly hungry for such a church. Please pray that God will continue to prepare the hearts of the thirsting souls of this needy, predominantly Catholic area.

In June we’re planning to start a Bible study, which will become the basis for the new church. Starting a church in Canada can be particularly complex. In fact, it can take upwards to a year to officially register a church with the Canadian government. We’re praying that God will expedite this process. But in the meantime, we’re seeking God’s wisdom in using all possible means to reach souls for His glory. Please pray that God will pave the way for the establishment of His church in His perfect time.

As we make final preparations to go to Canada, we need seven additional supporting churches. Because of the high cost of living in Canada, we definitely could use more support. However, we’re going full steam ahead in our move to Canada and prayerfully trusting God to meet our needs! Please pray that God would lead others to be a part of reaching the unreached of Canada.

We’re grateful for your enduring friendship, faithful prayers, and generous support. It’s our honor and joy to serve the Lord together with you. May He richly bless in His harvest fields.

Because He Is Worthy,

Lonnie Blount
