Well what a crazy past two months it has been here in Victoria. I will speak more about that under the Australian Highlights section, also our furlough plans under the Family Section. It is November and we are slowly coming out of stage 4.5 lockdown.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click the link below. The Eckels - October 2020

We are on our 26th week of Covid-19 lockdown and our 6th week of having 8:00 p.m. curfews.  I am thankful that during these times we can still meet as a church online.  I have been doing live streaming Sunday morning and evening services.  Our mid-week service is held on Zoom so we can see everyone and pray together.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click on the link below.

Our last prayer letter we were able to have our 11th anniversary as a church together, that has now been 14 weeks ago.  It is hard to believe and frustrating as we are not able to fellowship together as a church.  We are still staying busy with Livestreaming Sundays and mid-week zoom meetings.  We are grateful for being able to continue services during the Covid crisis.

It was smaller than usual considering we were just a few days from not being able to meet all.  We managed to stay under the 100-limit required by law at the time and God was gracious as we held our 11th anniversary with just members and some faithful attenders.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click the link below.

Ministry Highlights:  Apocalyptic headlines are everywhere we turn in our media.  The media is even using Biblical terms in describing these events in our world.  What a reminder that God's word is true.  Signs of the times are everywhere reminding the believer that Christ will soon return.

The Eckels Family – November 2019

Souls saved, baptism, new members added unto the church.  This is what has highlighted the Westside Baptist Church in 2019.  We started off 2019 with several families leaving us and discouragement in the church.  I am reminded that the church is the Lord's not mine.  Our theme was "God is Faithful" and we strived as a church to just be faithful and let God build His church.

We continue to press on growing here a little there a little.  We see visitors still coming and some come from soulwinning.  We have a new family that has been coming that was reached through our Soulwinning ministry.  Peter, his wife and child have been attending faithfully as well as Simon a man whom I am discipling.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click the link below.
