A Brand New Church
Have you ever been involved in the birth of a church? It's a very exciting thing! We went to downtown Vancouver this morning to help distribute tracts in anticipation of the opening of Urban Community Baptist Church, in the heart of Vancouver. There were 105 people from 6 different independent Baptist churches there to help, and we blanketed the downtown area with gospel tracts. My spot was just outside a major skytrain terminal, and I was able to put tracts in the hands of dozens of people this morning. Many people refused them, many took them and stuffed them in their bags, but I was blessed to see quite a few people open them and begin reading. God has promised that His Word will not return void - Isa 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Please pray with us for the people of downtown Vancouver, and drop by UCBC's website and let Pastor & Mrs. Beliveau know that you're praying for them!
