We have great news! Greater Vision has grown in its membership and the Pearson have grown in its family numbers! Mrs. Perason will be having another Pearson baby. Our newest member is due December 18th. We are excited and very thankful for God’s grace to bless us with baby number 5. Please pray for a healthy baby and mother. Any suggestions for names are welcome.
More good news is God has blessed us in our worship services through our community outreach. We have seen an increase in visitors in both Wednesday Bible study and Sunday service.
We have hit a snare at our mission house, ministry always brings wars. The snare is a liquor store preparing to move in next door to us. This will bring unwanted problems such as panhandling and drug-dealing in front of our mission house, also the alcohol use in our community will only increase, and with us being so close we with the business. We have brought these issues up to our neighbors within the building but as of now the business will open in a informed the landlord that if the problems grow quickly we will give her a two months notice and seek a new location. Please pray that either it doesn’t come to the point of moving out, or pray that God will give us another place to move into. Whatever way it goes and wherever God leads, our mission is the same, to plant the Lords Church. Wherever God desires that to be, we are resolved to fulfilled the great commission. Pray for us as we fight the good fight. Our “Your life matters” next event is quickly approaching, please pray as we seek to give out a 1000 book bags with gospel tracts within them. We are also in need of school supplies for the event. If you are interested in giving, contact me at 513-373-2478.
Our desire to be full time has grown rapidly as the mission opportunities have grown. I used to think I could do this mission and work a full time job but the two continued to conflict with each other. Me and Tiara are currently putting together a plan too be full time in ministry by 2023.
Our plan to be full time includes an increase of deputation. With our Sunday services and Wednesday services being a great blessing to many visitors, we don’t want to miss too many of them, so pray for us as we try to visit churches to share our burden only one Sunday a month and during Sunday evening services. Pray for safety and open doors as we seek support.
Please pray for us as we need wisdom in our finances for the mission, and the support of our monthly needs as a family. Currently approximately 40 percent of our support goes to the store front, utilities, insurance for church van, etc. to become full-time we need 1500-2000 dollars more support. We are also praying and looking for a cheaper place to host our Bible studies, which could help us with our full-time income.
We are currently putting together a separate spreadsheet report for our finances, for all our supporting Churches.
Finally, thank you, thank you, thank you to all the churches who are holding the rope for us while we are in the pit fighting for souls and fighting to plant the Lords church. We love you and we pray for many blessings over you all.
