Prayer Letter January 2023

The Hendricks Family




January 11, 2023

Dear Partners in the Lord's Harvest,


         We pray that each of you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. My family had a blessed time together at Christmas. We have news that we are going to be GREAT Grandparents this year. Our oldest Grandson, Samuel and his wife, Amy are expecting a little boy around June (we can’t wait to meet Nickolas). Thank you to all who sent extra offerings, gift, messages and cards to Becky and I.  We are so thankful for your care for us.

             The Prison Services are moving right along and somewhat back to normal. We have had 2 good services already this year with men getting help. Pray for Brother Ian Danner as he is helping me now and wanting to get more involved, Praise the Lord. We need more helpers in the field.  Will you pray? Will you go? I am only going to get back into 4 Prisons right now because of traveling overseas has opened back up this year and needing more help. Pray for Laborers.

                         Brother Keith Phelps and I left for Dominican Republic December 10 - 17. We had a good trip. We dedicated the new building for Brother David Jean. That day we had 4 women and one man saved. To God Be Glory. We had a special fellowship after the morning service. What a blessing to see what God did in a years time.

             We visited several of the Churches that have Bible Students studying the curriculum Brother Keith helped them to obtain. We went to observe the class and try to be an encouragement to the men. It was a blessing to see men training for the ministry. We pray that they will continue to study and when finished, step up to plant more Churches for God’s glory.

                       We visited one School this trip. We were able to give the Gospel in 5 classrooms. In the 2 older students classrooms we gave each student a Spanish Bible, (Thanks to those of you who helped with shipping them there), in the 3 younger students classes, we presented the Gospel and gave each of them a coloring book in English that gave them the plan of salvation. Many asked the Lord to be their Savior. When we were preparing to leave, several women came to the car and were writing their name and phone number in Brother David’s Bible. I ask him when we left what was that about. He said, “Preacher, they had a Director’s meeting at the School today, all these ladies are over different Schools and they ask if we could come to their School when we return to Dominican Republic. God is opening more doors, hallelujah.

             Pray for Becky and I as we leave for Trinidad, January 14 - 21. We will be preaching for Brother Praymand Marajh, at Bible Believers Baptist Church that week. Pray that God would enable us to help his people and that we would see souls saved.

             Pray for my son-in-law, Sam Hardy, he had a scan done this week and they have found two little spots that are where he had the Glioblastoma removed a year ago. They are not saying for sure it is cancer right now but are going to watch it. He is having trouble walking and has fallen several times this week.  My daughter says that because of this he would not be able to take more chemo so they have some hard decisions to make in the coming days.

             We are planning several trips into the Islands this year as the covid restrictions have been lifted. This year looks to be a busy year of ministry. Thank you to each of you that have helped in the past with these expenses. The cost of travel, like everything else has risen but God is faithful. Please help us pray for the needed funds as we travel in the work of the Lord

             As we close, thank you again for your support of our ministry. If I can come and give an update on what God is doing, please give me a call. Some have already reached out to us this year to come and preach and update them on what God is doing. Thank you.
