God has worked in tremendous ways this summer! We are so thankful that He allows us to be a small part of His big plan. God opened the door and allowed us to serve for the months of June and July at Hoosier Hills Baptist Camp in Dillsboro, Indiana. The Lord put together a tremendous staff that made a huge impact on many lives. I (Kyle) was able to serve as the assistant director, running all of the games and leading the music. Tressa served as a camp secretary and also ran the camp snack shop among many other duties. It was a stretching summer, but certainly worth it. We saw a little over 1000 young people attend the camp and had 101 professions of salvation! We serve a big God, that does great things.
As camp came to a conclusion, we asked the Lord to clearly show us what His next step for us would be. We found comfort in knowing that we were in the middle of God's will but were unsure what God had next. God answered our prayers emphatically! He opened the door for us to travel for a month and a half with a missionary family that is on deputation. The Birkholz family (www.thebirkholzfamily.com) are missionaries to Honduras, and friends that I had met at camp many years before. They invited us to travel with them as they visit churches in Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to meet pastors and make contacts for potential meetings!
We are excited to announce the official launch of our ministry website: www.kylegilstrap.com. Make sure you check it out as we strive to update it regularly with new photos and what God is doing for us!
Please continue to pray for us as we are launching out on this new and exciting adventure! Pray for travel mercies as we will be driving a great deal in the next month and a half. Also, pray that God will supply meetings in His time. We are patiently waiting for God to open those doors as He sees fit. Most importantly, pray that God will lead us to those who are in need of Salvation!
Thank you for your continued prayers and support as we travel and preach and pray for revival!
