I speak of these blessing not for myself but for the glory of the Lord; as the Apostle Paul told the Philippians in Phil 4:15-17. In verse 17 says “Not because I desire a gift; but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.” To all of those that have supported our ministry, we want to say “thank you.” All of these things souls saved and more were added to your account. It is because of your prayers and giving that we were and are able to travel and help.
I do not know what may unfold in 2015. Our prayer is first for the Lord’s return. We also pray for more souls to be saved, churches started and churches helped. Primarily we will also be focusing on continuing our deputation. We are currently at 40% and still have a ways to go before being fully supported. So, in addition to that, we are sending a team of soul winners back to Staten Island for the one year anniversary. We are also looking into helping a church planter with a new church in Zephyrhills, FL. starting later this year.
For an update on the new church in Staten Island, this new Church is doing great! It is now averaging 25-35 in attendance each week. If you have seen in our videos that are on our website, you know that the store front where they are meeting is not that big. Pastor Wilt has had to knock down a wall to make room for more chairs. We praise the Lord for the wonderful growth of this new church.
Please continue to pray for the Holtslcaws for traveling mercies as we cover the east coast. Please pray for many souls for our labor. Please pray for our work in church planting. It is our desire that much fruit will be added to your account. Please consider supporting our family financially though your local church missions program. May we all pray, give and go until Jesus comes.
In His Service,
Dr. Timothy Holtsclaw
Director of Church Planting
