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: We’ve Been All Over the Place This Month!

Jon Wrightson Prayer Letter:  We've Been All Over the Place This Month!Family

The Wrightson family is doing great. Little Annabelle is growing so fast; thank you again for praying for her and Misty. God has been so good to us. Trying to keep the kids caught up on school has been challenging during travel, but they are working very hard. Daniel turned thirteen this month; thank you to all of you who sent cards to him. Now we officially have four teenagers and a six-month-old baby—that sounds a little crazy!

Soul Winning

I was able to preach while in Virginia, and after the service, I had the privilege of leading a lady to the Lord. Leeanne was raised in church but had left a few years back, and she was struggling with life. She trusted Christ as her Saviour! There is nothing that brings hope and strength more than trusting in God’s love. I was also privileged to preach in Michigan, and a young man named Jadin trusted Christ as his Saviour.

Travels

We have been all over the place this month. It started with Pastor Nash in Tennessee. Then we were able to stay with a family that once attended Coastline. The Tummers family royally spoiled us! I was asked to preach at their Wednesday Bible Study. Next, we were in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. While in Michigan, we saw snow almost every day. Please pray, as I will be flying to Puerto Rico in March to meet with Pastor Daniels at Calvary Baptist in Carolina, Puerto Rico.

Special Needs and Prayer Requests

● Safety as we travel and raise support
● That we will learn Spanish
● The people of Puerto Rico
● Repairs on our home

Sincerely,

Jon R. Wrightson
