We sure do have a big God! This past month Liz and I were blessed to spend two weeks in the Appalachian area of our great nation. We started at Pastor Marshall Wolverton’s church in Lehighton, Pennsylvania, for their annual missions conference. It was such an amazing opportunity to be there. Pastor Wolverton and the people were wonderful. The scenery made our jaws drop daily. Overall, I would say that we got the royal treatment! To top it all off, on the last night of the conference, all the missionaries who attended were voted on and accepted for support. After the conference we stayed in a prophet’s chamber for a few days in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, right in the heart of Amish country. Again, it was beautiful and well worth a second trip. During our time there, I was able to go soul winning with the interim pastor of our host church and lead a lady named Sherry to Christ. The funny part is that she was hard of hearing, so I had to speak very loudly and animatedly to get through the plan. It must have been a sight for the neighbors, but she was sweetly saved that night!
The next leg of this month’s journey put us in West Virginia. On Saturday we had the privilege of going soul winning with Pastor Dennis Morrello in Huntington, West Virginia. The Lord blessed again with a soul saved. His name was William Sloan. I encouraged him to come to church on the bus the next day and to make a profession of faith and get baptized. I could only hope that he would because we would not be presenting our work at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Huntington until that evening. On Sunday we presented the work to Pastor Travis Bradley and the folks of the Providence Baptist Church in Charleston, West Virginia. They were such a sweet church, and we greatly enjoyed our time with them. That evening we went to Pastor Morrello’s church to present our work there as well. It was then that my soul winning-partner told me that William did in fact come to church, make a public profession, and get baptized in the morning service! Hallelujah!
We came home to North Carolina for a while to head to another meeting. While on our way home from church, the Lord laid it on my heart to witness to a man to whom I was giving a jump for his dead battery. Right there in the CVS parking lot, Charles trusted Christ for salvation! Cha Ching! To top off the amazing blessings for the month, we went to our scheduled meeting at New Testament Baptist Church in Gibsonville, North Carolina, and got another blessing—they voted to take us on for support before we ever got to the church! Pastor Ken Jackson allowed me to present and preach that night. How about that? God just outdid Himself at every turn this month. We look forward to the next.
We also look forward to what the Lord will do through the two additional partners we picked up this month. Continue to pray that we will get the meetings we need. We are earnestly praying for July to be filled. Pray for more souls to be saved on our travels.
His servant and yours,
