August 2017

Dear Friends,

This summer has been a combination of joy, sadness, celebration, and a very busy schedule. It is always sad to see families move out of the city and away from our church, but we rejoice in the impact that God has allowed us to have in people’s lives.

Back in July, Denise received word that her mother was very sick, so she and Kaylee rushed to Panama City, Florida where she was able to be with her for her last few hours before her mother went to Heaven. Makenzie, Chloe, Cade & I then drove to Florida for the funeral. Because we left for Florida so quickly, we had very little time to prepare for the services that we were going to miss. Oscar, one of the faithful men in our church, preached in both Sunday services. We are very happy to report that not only did the services go well, but we had guests in both services and two people trusted Christ during the invitation! It is amazing to see God working in our church, and it is one of the greatest joys of our ministry to see people in our church discover their spiritual gifts, and then use them for the Lord.

Vacation Bible School was really special this year! It was my desire and prayer that we would specifically focus each session on the gospel. Pastor Dan Frost, along with some friends from the Northside Baptist Church in St. Albans, Vermont, helped us and a number of kids trusted Christ as their Savior!

Just last week, we resumed our Saturday discipleship classes. We are thankful to have more people signed up for this semester than ever before.

The struggle in the Big Apple is real, the challenges are great, but our God is greater! Thank you for your continued prayers, encouragement, and support. Thank you for not only your prayers for our ministry, but specifically for our family. It is our privilege to represent you in the Bronx.

In His Service,

Ken Baker

begins March 8th at Sight and Sound Stage in Lancaster, PA. Journey back through time and relive the golden splendor and pride of ancient Egypt, the poverty and oppression of the Hebrew slaves and the humble, broken man that God raised up to become their deliverer. Sign up if you would like to go as a group; we need 15 or more for a special rate with the meal. Date will be forthcoming sometime in June.
