Dear Faith Baptist Church,

Thank you so much for your prayers on our behalf.  We are eagerly anticipating April 1st as we will have our Grand Opening Sunday service on that date!  The Lord has provided a space in the public high school for us to rent.  We are transitioning our Bible study group to meeting on Sundays in that space on March 25th, so that we can see how things work out and what may need to be changed before our Grand Opening.  

We have been busy purchasing needed items since we will have to carry everything in and out of the school every Sunday.  The Lord has provided funds for a small trailer which will greatly help in this process!

We are praying for 50 people from the community to visit Emmaus Road Baptist Church on April 1st.  We would covet your prayers with us on this matter, and we look forward to telling you what God has done!

As a personal prayer request, we have had two major issue with our house and we are in the process of replacing our furnace and our roof.  There are a lot of details that go along with this, and we are in the middle of preparing for Grand Opening, so there is a lot going on at our house!

Serving the Lord in "da Bronx,"

Dear Faith Baptist Church,

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and financial support on behalf of our family.  We are excited to finally write to you from our mission field!  We were able to purchase a house in the Bronx on June 12th, and after about a month of necessary renovations, we moved in on July 15th!  We have been busy unpacking and settling in, as well as completing some of the renovations.  

 

The house which God blessed us with is in an ideal location for reaching our target neighborhood of Kingsbridge in the Bronx.  We have a large living room where we have started holding Saturday night Bible studies at 7 p.m.  Please pray for increased attendance and for people to be saved.  We are studied the book of John.  The house is two doors away from a public elementary school, and we look forward to holding a Bible Club for the children on our patio when school resumes this fall.

 

The Lord has allowed us to meet many of our neighbors and other people in our neighborhood.  We are building relationships with them and many have been invited to our Bible study.  We are continuing discipleship classes with the gentleman who was saved this past spring.  Pray for his family to follow him in salvation, and for his continued growth.

 

We are also pursuing several leads for possible meeting places for Sunday services.  Please pray that God will lead us to the right facility and for the price to be affordable!

 

In Christ,

Ben & Andrea Hamilton

Dear Faith Baptist Church,
We want to thank you for your continued financial support and prayers for our family. We are on the doorstep of beginning the church plant in the Bronx! The Lord graciously allowed Ben to be ordained in December. Since that time we have been busy building a church website, ordering tracts, designing and printing invitations, and preparing for individual Bible Studies.

We plan to begin a group Bible Study as soon as the Lord opens the door for our family to relocate to the Bronx. We have signed a contract on a "fixer upper" house on the edge of our target neighborhood. It is a short sale, so we are learning a lot about waiting on the Lord's timing! Please continue to pray for a smooth purchase process if this house is indeed God's Will for our family.

We are attaching an example of one of our invitation cards. Also, we emailed a copy of a new family picture in November. We noticed on your website that the last prayer letter you have posted is from May 2016. We want to verify that you have been receiving our prayer letters and communication. (Last prayer letter was sent in December 2016, along with a Christmas card).

Please let us know if you have received these items. Thank you for your prayers!

In Christ,
Ben & Andrea Hamilton

Dear Praying Friends,

May 24, 2016

We just wanted to send out a quick update to let you know where we are in our home search. Last Friday, we viewed a house which we think will be perfect for our family and ministry in the Bronx. We made an offer, and it has been accepted. We believe this home is the Lord’s will for us, and we can already see answered prayer.

Please continue to pray for God’s clear guidance and working as we enter the contract stage of buying this home. If it is not God’s will, we want Him to close the door firmly. We are overwhelmed at the process, but we are learning a lot and trusting the Lord to complete the process in His timing.

We are scheduled to depart for the west coast on June 20th, and there is much to be done before we leave! Please pray for wisdom and God’s speed.

A picture of the house is below (it is the house on the far right, semi-attached). This home has three bedrooms upstairs with generous closets (to Andrea’s delight). There is space in the master bedroom for Ben to have a small study. The main floor has a half-bath, and a living room, kitchen, and dining room (from front of house to back of house). There is a small backyard which our kids believe comes with a puppy! The basement offers another bathroom and a room which we may use as a guest room or storage room. There is also a laundry “closet” in answer to our prayers for a washer/dryer hookup! There is plenty of room for beginning with a Bible study in our home until we can rent a commercial. This home is very close to the center of our target area, and we were able to get a good price. If you have any other questions, we would love to answer them!

In Christ,
Ben & Andrea Hamilton
