What a Joy it is to serve Our Lord! The last few months the Lord has been so good to us, on November 23 at 1:34 am My wife delivered our 6 lb. 5 oz. son Malachi Keith Ballinger, and what a blessing he is. Soon after we hit the road with meetings in, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland and for this we thank God!
I just want to share our prayer with you about the islands, as many of you know we have been praying for the Souls in the islands of the Grenadines; Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau and Union and it is our goal to reach these islands with the Gospel.
I want to share with you in this letter about the Island Of Bequia.
Bequia has a population around 6000 with only one Baptist church, the islands is divided, the north side has Gospel light Baptist Church where we had the opportunity to spend 10 months working with Bro Keith Blalock preaching, visiting, doing Bible studies and many other ministries. The church is growing and faithful under the leadership of a national pastor and we praise God for this.
The south side of the Bequia has no Baptist church and the folks there are unable to come to church on the north side. You say is there a need? There is a need because the devil has planted his churches on the south side and the folks there are Lost and undone without Christ, many have been lied to, saying you have to do this or do that to be saved, but we know that It is only by Christ and the finished work on Calvary that a Man can be saved.
So we ask you this Month will you pray for the south side of Bequia? Will you pray that the Lord will prepare their Hearts for the Gospel and will you Pray that God will Raise our support so that we can go and reach these islands with the Gospel.
David, Mckenzie and Malachi Ballinger
