Growing up in a Marine Corps family, I often moved to new places.  But I considered Jacksonville, NC to be “where I grew up”.  At age 16, my family settled in Greensboro, NC.  As a 21 year old marine, lost, empty, and looking for purpose, I knew I needed to find God.  I stumbled into a place called Charity Baptist Church where I was saved in January of 1995.  Within a year, I had answered God’s call on my life to preach.  I also found my wife, Misty, there.  God has opened many doors for my family and me to serve Him.  I was the superintendent of Malachi Boys School, a home for troubled boys.  From there, I became an assistant pastor at Amazing Grace Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Howard Owens.  God then lead us to pack up and head to Hyles-Anderson Bible College. 

It was at Hyles-Anderson where I nailed down the location God would have us start a church…Jacksonville, NC, the home of Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base.  I pastored Coastline Baptist Church for 13 wonderful years.  I thought I would die serving God in Jacksonville.  Once again, however, God had other plans for my family.  We have surrendered to go start as many churches as He will allow us on the island of Puerto Rico.  I can’t wait to see what God has in store for our future!

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter: Another Year of Serving God

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter:  Another Year of Serving GodFamily

Well, another year of serving God is behind us, and a new year of service and blessings are ahead. I hope you are looking forward to 2019. It is going to be a wonderful year.

Soul Winning

I had many opportunities to present God’s love this month. I was also privileged to preach several times. I am still amazed every time I stand to preach that when God called me 23 years ago, I could not stand in front of one person to speak without being scared to death. God has a way of changing us . . . if we are simply willing to be changed. What a mighty God we serve.

I was privileged to share the Gospel with a young man in Maryland. He was diagnosed with many mental issues from his childhood and had struggled with life. After many questions, he was gloriously saved.

Travels

We have been to several churches this month, mostly local. I preached a Faith Promise Missions Conference in Maryland. Their Faith Promise giving increased by 15%. God is so good. Next month we are headed to Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

Special Needs and Prayer Requests

● Pray for safety as we travel and raise support.
● Pray that we will learn Spanish.
● Pray for the people of Puerto Rico.

Sincerely,

Jon R. Wrightson
