The mission work is seeing a good number of visitors every Sunday, and they’ve even had to order more chairs! Though it’s sometimes hard for Jason to catch all visitors before they leave, he’s thankful for a warm and welcoming congregation that does their part. The members of Trinity are also faithful to invite others to church. One church family recently had conversations with three different people about Trinity, and one of them decided to come for a visit. Another example is an undergrad student who is not yet a member.

Bill and Margaret Shishko RHM Bill Shishko asks you to rejoice with Harvest Church in East Haddam, Connecticut. On February 8 this group was recognized as a mission work by the session of Westminster OPC in Hamden. Please be in prayer that the Lord would give opportunities for gospel conversations during Harvest Church’s outreach at Celebrate East Haddam, a local fair to be held on Saturday, April 27, and that through those conversations the Lord would send new people to worship and bring them to a decided faith in Christ.
