Greetings from Riverton, Utah!
As Thanksgiving approaches, I wanted to express a deep gratitude on behalf of my family. Because of your faithful support and prayers, we have been able to do more than we had anticipated. God has sustained us as you have sacrificed and supported us this past year. Words will not be able to express or communicate how much we are thankful for your part here in the Salt Lake Valley.
Since launching on Easter Sunday, almost 7 months ago, we have seen God do exceeding abundantly above all that we could have ever thought. We have averaged 100-145 each week, have had 2 baptisms and our children’s program has grown 50+. Many come each week who do not profess Christ, but they are coming and we know that His Word will do the work in drawing them to Himself. There is still much to be done as there are still less than 2% of Evangelical Churches here in the Valley.
I am still coaching volleyball to bring in more support for our family and God continues to open doors for Gospel conversations with the players and fellow coaches. I will be coaching a U17 National Team this season and will be competing in 3 tournaments. As you pray for these opportunities, pray that God would bring them to Gospel Hope. Many of them have mentioned their desire to visit.
A huge change that will be taking place is the platform we are using to accept support and contributions. Gospel Grace Church is changing their platform, and we as a team felt that it would be a good time to transition your support over to our website. I know this is a little bit of a hassle, but this will relieve Gospel Grace from having to facilitate the support that comes in and hopefully will be easier for us as well. I hope you will still consider supporting us. If so, here is how you would proceed with giving. I know this will take a few moments, but what you would need to do is to delete the giving through Gospel Grace and start through Gospel Hope.
Here is the link for online giving: https://www.gospelhoperiverton.com/church-planting
If you would like to mail your support in, here is the address for you to do so -
Gospel Hope Church
P.O. Box 1434
Riverton, UT 84065
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Gospel Grace will be switching out their platform in December. If you would be able to make that change, we would greatly appreciate it. You are a huge part of what God is doing. Paul said in Philippians 1, “we thank God in every remembrance of you always with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel!”
We love you and hope you enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
