Dear churches and friends,
As always, I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers and financial support. Our monthly support is down somewhat, but the Lord is faithful. “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” (Hebrews 13:5-6) We picked up a new supporting Churches along the way for which we are thankful. Bro. Donnie Burford and South Irvine Baptist Church South Irvine, KY, have added me on for support.
Another year has begun. Time seems to fly faster all the time. It is just a constant reminder that with every passing second, we are closer to the Lord’s return.
Trinity Baptist Church is now meeting in its new building next to the Rene Green Children’s Home. It is a very nice building, and we can have all services including our Bible studies. Many people from different countries that are visiting Thailand come to our services, and we thank the Lord for that! If you follow us on Facebook, you have probably seen pictures of the Bible studies that we conduct on Sunday and Wednesday mornings.
I have been having some medical problems that required to go to the emergency room one night for some treatment. They wanted me spend the night in the hospital, but I chose not to do so. I have been having some issues with my legs, also. I ask that you pray for our health that the Lord will continue to grant us the ability to do the work He has called us to do.
Bro. Gordon & Nancy Downs
