Richie McDonnell – November 24, 2013
Greetings! God is doing incredible things here in beautiful Santa Barbara! Last week, God added John to our number through baptism! John is a freshman at UCSB, whom I met on the second day of this Fall semester. He has been coming around ever since, and after studying the Bible for several weeks, John came to the conviction that he was never Biblically converted to Jesus! John is very zealous and has already brought out his roommate – who is now studying – to Bible Talk and church!John’s baptism gives the Santa Barbara Ministry a
solid foothold at the incredible UCSB Campus!

Lastly, I am very encouraged and inspired by all the hard work and faith of the Santa Barbara disciples through hours of tagging, selling personal possessions, and personal financial sacrifice to give to our 3X Special Missions Contribution! With only 16 disciples, we gave over 4X for our Special Missions Contribution – all by the grace of God! Please keep praying for us, as Lord willing, we will be sent out in January to become the Santa Barbara International Christian Church!
