U.K. General Secretary Nigel Kissick sent in an extensive update including the following about he and Charis’s ministry:
As we look back over the past year, we are thankful to The Lord for all His goodness, guidance and provision, and we can truly say that He is faithful.
We are thankful to him for each one of you who prayerfully and practically remember us and the work of the Mission.
We are also so thankful the Lord for the many openings to share about the work of the Mission and for the interest as Nigel has shared in mid weeks, missionary meetings and Sunday Services and other opportunities to present the Saviour who alone can change lives.
Nigel was invited to speak at a two week Gospel Mission back in October. Ballee Baptist Church had organised the Mission in Cullybackey College. Many from the church were proactive and invited friends, family, colleagues and neighbours. It was encouraging to sense The Lords presences and to know that folk were praying with expectant hearts. Since that Mission we know of a man trusting the Lord and only in the New year he passed away, as we write this update the old hymn comes to mind, ‘Life at best is very brief like the falling of a leaf, like the binding of a sheaf, be in time’.
As we look forward into 2018 we have a good number of engagements planned, whether here in Northern Ireland, in the South-West of England or later in the year in the city of Liverpool. Also at the end of 2018 the GMSA General Council has invited Rev. Paul Acheson and Pastor Ian Wilson to travel out to Chile to be the main speakers to our international missions conference, we would be leaving on the 27th December 2018 and returning on the 8th January 2019, please join with us in prayer for Gods provision and His help to be given to these men who will be speaking on twelve occasions to the Missionaries.
Again be assured your support in any way does not go unnoticed, we are truly grateful to everyone of you who
stand with us as we endeavour to make the work of our Missionaries known throughout the UK and Ireland.
Please check out our GMSA web page and while there look for the Southern Sentinel Blog were you will
find constant updates with the work and our workers.
