Peter is working to plant biblical churches in Germany. Throughout the week, he is teaching, preaching, and evangelizing in the streets. Peter is a member of the Reformed Baptist Church in Wetzlar (Hessen). He is married to Priscilla, and they have two young boys – Josiah and Elias.
Dearly and highly esteemed partners in the gospel: I thank you for taking the time to read this report; I am very grateful for your support and your intercession on our behalf. I truly appreciate your faithfulness in remembering us before the throne of God. Now it is my joy to inform you about the work on the mission field here in Germany.
We praise our Lord for the way He is working in our midst. A handful of people would like to be baptized, and even more would like to become members of our church. I visited some of our people in their homes, and I am very pleased to hear them say that the Word of God is changing them in a mighty way. They are growing in their love for Christ and their hatred of sin. I am also thankful that we are welcoming new visitors every Lord’s Day.
While we are experiencing these joyful developments, we are also experiencing a bitter thing: a couple who is not in membership, yet very dear to us, has left our fellowship. Please pray that we might learn through sad moments like these. Pray for all of us. Pray that we will be able to constitute a gospel-centered and Christ-glorifying church in Frankfurt. May I also ask you to pray specifically for us as we seek to find a more fitting place to meet?
I continue to train a group of trustworthy men in the spiritual disciplines. It is good to see their spiritual growth and their increased understanding of what it means to have a true burden for the lost. Please pray for these men, as we hope to ordain elders and deacons soon.
Our efforts to reach the lost continue. This month, a wonderful family from our church plant joined me to share the gospel on the streets of Frankfurt. They were truly shocked when they realized how resolutely people reject the good news. Please continue to pray for our ongoing street evangelism. Please join us in praying that God will cause the growth of all gospel seeds that have been planted throughout Frankfurt. We long to see fruit for Christ’s name’s sake.
