Dear Friends at Assembly Care,
Isobel and I are grateful for the time we were able to spend with our younger son Tim and his children in August. It was quality time during which the Lord made it possible to have spiritual input into the lives of the children. While with them I was asked to say a few words at the Memorial Service for a friend whom I had the privilege of leading to the Lord some months ago. As a result of sharing how my friend had come to Christ I learned that the ladies of his wife’s Bible study group had been praying for him for years. They were overjoyed to hear he had come to the Lord even if it was at the very end of his life. It was a real illustration of how the evangelist in very often the final link in the chain which leads someone to faith in the Lord Jesus. To God be all the glory.
Last weekend I was preaching in one of the Vancouver assemblies. The Lord’s presence was truly felt as the word of God was being preached. The Holy Spirit was working and some people who are grappling with significant challenges spoke of it being the Lord’s word for them. Also the young married man who came to the Lord the last time I was with this assembly is continuing to grow in the Lord. Again, all glory to our wonderful Lord.
Our men’s Bible study has resumed and seven men met with me yesterday. They all testified to the fact that our times together is proving significant in their spiritual growth.
Yesterday morning we met with our Advisory Board. We were able to rejoice together in all the Lord is doing as well as discuss and pray over some deeper issues relative to the ministry the Lord has given us.
Thank you again for your prayerful support which, as we keep saying and saying from our hearts, means more to us than you will ever know.
“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you”.
Clayton & Isobel,
