Preaching in Antigua

For the past couple of days, it's been a blessing and joy to be with and serve the saints of Antigua and the Eastern Caribbean Baptist Mission, led by good brother and friend Pastor Hensworth Jonas.

The weekend began with a leadership banquet on Saturday night. There were three services on yesterday, with a delicious dinner between the morning and evening services.

The people here are well-taught, hungry for the truth and the word, and growing more and more evangelistic. Beginning with last evening's service, the fellowship of churches are committed to hosting four evangelistic services through Wednesday night. Last night we began with Eph. 2:1-10. Tonight, D.V., it's Romans 1:16-32. Tomorrow, Romans 3. And Wednesday, perhaps John 3:16 or Romans 5.

The people here have worked really hard to be sure family and friends are included in the services and their prayers. Between the circuit of three churches, average Sunday morning service is somewhere around 400. Yesterday attendance was 842 people, many needing to hear the Good News. Pray that the Lord grants lasting and abundant fruit!
