McKeen Sunday

 It was McKeen Sunday last week at West Rockport Baptist Church. Dan proclaimed, "Reasons Not to be Ashamed of the Gospel," found in Romans 1:16 and 17 in the AM service. Later in the Evening Service Kevin spoke on, "Where is Your Treasure?" from Matthew 6:19-21. It was a blessing to share the day with friends and family.

Diana is returning to West Rockport for the Church's 8th Christmas Candlelight Dessert as the speaker December 3rd. Please pray the Gospel will be clear and those in need of a Savior will respond to God's call for salvation.

Milton with his family is making bi-weekly trips to Borja, Ecuador in our absence. Pray for effective ministry and economic provision as he makes these trips.

Darwin and Nelly need your prayers to be encouraged as they lead in Chaupimolino. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Chaupimolino, Ecuador to be faithful to the Lord and to their families.

We have one church visit scheduled in December on the 2nd. We have some informal meetings planned prior to Christmas to reconnect with friends committed to Crossworld's ministry to the people of Borja, Ecuador and surrounding areas.

Bringing God's Love to Life

"Bringing God's Love to Life" has been the theme of our Crossworld Ministry presentations as we travel in November. We began at Calvary Bible Church in Derry, NH. Six ministries around the globe were represented at Calvary's annual missions conference.

 I personally enjoyed hearing from Yoshito Kato, born and raised in Tokyo, who along with his wife and family began Word of Life from nothing in Japan. Last year his wife passed away with cancer and a week later the great earthquake hit northern Japan, and a tsunami destroyed 270,000 houses and 20,000 died or were missing. Yoshito has organized students and staff to northern Japan to help tsunami survivors each weekend, They give hot meals and also distribute Bibles and tracts. He reports the ministry is going very well in Japan and the need for salvation of Japanese people is great.

Last week we joined the fellowship at Kennebec Valley Baptist Church

 Sunday Nov. 18th Liberty Baptist Church was our destination.

We have communicated with some of our Ecuadorian friends this week. Even though some have faced hardships they remain faithful to the Lord. Please keep your Ecuadorian brothers and sisters in the Lord in your prayers. Please pray they will maintain their love for the Lord so that others will come to know Jesus and receive Him as Savior.
