Hughes News #65

"Tie your shoes and pray for the Hughes"

Dear Friends,

We now have a pulpit for our meeting place!  Early in January David sketched out a design and later picked up the necessary lumber.  One day we constructed it (and a white board stand) and another day sanded both items.  David then applied the stain and lacquer and we are now using it.

This past month I designed a sign for our church.  I should be able to pick up the vinyl banner this Wednesday.  We will hang it on the outside wall of our rental.  There is much the sign can’t do, but it can help people find where we meet as well as make our ministry’s presence known to the many people who go by the building.

We have had two English classes so far.  The first week nine individuals showed up, and the next- twenty!  Nearly everyone who has come is a beginner, making it easier for the lessons to benefit the majority.  We are discussing how to help those who are more advanced.  Since we don’t want to simply influence their intellectual lives, would you take a moment now to pray for opportunities to spiritually influence them for our Savior?

In about a month and a half a friend who is also endorsed by All Points will be joining our team in Soroca.  (Here is a link with her information.)  For now, we ask prayer for Sarah as she makes final preparations, and for our team here as we seek to help her through the transition.

In His service,
Jacob and Viola Hughes

For Prayer:
1. ESL ministry- both class itself and the souls who come
2. The lost to be saved and believers to be encouraged
3. Wisdom to balance ministry and long-term housing plans

For Praise:
1. A pulpit and (coming soon) a sign at our meeting place
2. Good attendance at first two English classes
3. People met when looking at housing options for Sarah
