“The wheels on the deputation truck go ’round and ’round, ’round and ’round, ’round and ’round”—or at least that’s how this past month has felt while traveling, as we traveled over 8,000 miles to present East Africa and increase in partnerships. Through all the travels, God was faithful and blessed us with fruit.
We started in North Carolina at Bailey’s Grove Baptist Church. We were privileged to present our ministry to East Africa to them. From there we traveled to Richmond, Kentucky, to be a part of soul winning on Saturday and their services on Sunday to present and teach at Faith Baptist Church. We then traveled from Kentucky to Gilbert, Arizona, for a midweek service with Desert Gateway Baptist Church.
After Arizona, we found ourselves in Wyoming for two meetings. Our first was with Cornerstone Baptist Church in Laramie, Wyoming. We had a wonderful time of fellowship with everyone there. After the evening service, we were blessed to see a Truck Stop Ministry with one of the men in the church! Our second meeting was with First Baptist Church of Cody, Wyoming, and Pastor Fisher. We had a wonderful time of fellowship, and we’re thankful for the opportunities to present to the students of the school there, as well as to preach the midweek service. We also had a chance to go hang door flyers, which the kids loved doing while racing each other from door to door. While catching up on laundry at the local Laundromat, I invited a young woman to church. Praise the Lord, that Wednesday night she attended the church service and was able to meet Pastor Fisher. Please pray that she will continue to attend at First Baptist Church of Cody.
Our last meeting before arriving back in Michigan was in Galesville, Wisconsin, at Berean Baptist Church, where we were blessed to present and teach Sunday school. From there my wife and I were privileged to be a part of a Servants’ Retreat on Mackinac Island with many other couples. I want to say a big “Thank you” to Pastor Rogers and Berean Baptist Church of Adrian, Michigan, for allowing us to attend. The best part of the Servants’ Retreat was when my wife and I were able to see one young man named Chris come to know the Lord as his Saviour after giving him the Gospel.
Our last two meetings for the month were Drummond Island Baptist Church and Northstar Baptist Church. Thank you to both of these churches for allowing us to share the need of Jesus across East Africa.
Lastly in our letter, we want to praise the Lord for officially bringing us to 35% of our needed support. Thank you for all of those who have been faithfully supporting us, even through these difficult times, as well as our new partnerships that have come alongside of us in order to reach the lost across East Africa with the Gospel. Thank you and may God bless you.
Your co-laborers for lost souls across East Africa,
Brandon, Ali, Jeffrey, Hannah, & Esther Heselschwerdt
