October 2012 Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

September was a very fruitful month for us. We were privileged to be a part of 2 missions conferences and 7 other scheduled meetings in FL, OH, and VA. In September, we saw 1 new supporter and 2 more churches commit to support our ministry. We were also able to book 4 additional missions conferences and 9 other meetings in AL, IN, MI, PA, and NJ. While doing door to door visitation with my home church, I had the privilege to witness to a lady named Wendy. She invited me inside to also witness to her children. As she prayed to receive Christ, I heard her son begin also asking the Lord to save Him too. Praise God! He still saves souls!

Last month, we celebrated Lila's first birthday! It was good to see family and friends at her birthday party. Lila has really become a social butterfly. It seems that every place we go, she is determined to make friends with everyone. Somtimes she helps open doors for conversations which turn into witnessing opportunities. One morning, after we prayed for breakfast in the breakfast room at a hotel, the breakfast attendant began talking to us. In just a few minutes, we were able to tell her why we are going to Nicaragua and use that as an opportunity to share Christ with her.

Thank you for all of your prayers this last month. During our last conference of the month, the church voted to begin supporting us in October. That was a huge encouragement to us. Over this next month, please pray for the following:
     1. That God will help Wendy and her family grow in Christ and join the church.
     2. That God will go above and beyond in enabling churches to support new missionaries.
     3. That God will help us to be an encouragement and blessing to the churches we are in this month.
     4. That God will continue using us as witnesses for Jesus Christ!

In Christ,

Jeremy and Michelle Blanz
