Jim shares that the Lord continues to bless the Presbytery of the Midwest in many ways and the Presbytery will have to be divided again in the near future. One of the most exciting developments over the past few yearsis the way God is providing the mission works and churches with wonderful places to worship and expand ministries. One churchworshipped in a public facility for nineteen years before they were able to build a beautiful new building of their own.Another church used public facilities for twenty years and has recently been able to purchase anolder building and reconstruct it for many newprograms. And the stories like these continue. Jim shares, “we realizethat, as many have said, ‘you don’t need a building in order to worship God’. However, it sometimes helps to have a building to teach people the truth ofthat statement. We continue to praise God for his provision of worship facilities that at one time seemedimpossible to consider.”Continue to pray for the Presbytery’s growth and the faithfuloutreach of God’s people there.
