February was another busy month serving the Lord on deputation! Even with the leap day, it felt as if God packed it full of His wonders and blessings! From new godly friendships that were formed and more opportunities to spread the Gospel to the love of Christ being showered on us, there was no mistaking that God’s hand was all over our month of February!
Our travels continued in the Southeast, where we attended the Missions Conference at Liberty Baptist Church in Strasburg, Virginia. The fellowship was full of joy and laughter, and their heart for missions was evident! From there, we journeyed back to Georgia to stay in the missions house that was so graciously offered by Faith Independent Baptist Church and began to attend meetings around the area. That Wednesday, we dropped in at People’s Baptist Church of McDonough, Georgia; and a week later, they notified me that they were taking us on for financial support! What a surprise! The next Sunday, we were able to attend Solid Rock Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia. Having known the pastor and his wife from college and having many connections, we experienced such a time of sweet and Christ-honoring fellowship with them and their church family! We also had the privilege of attending the Alabama-Georgia Conference and being able to hear Dr. Bob Gray II preach the Word of God. Being able to see some wonderful missionary friends while there was an extra bonus and blessing for our family! We were then able to schedule a meeting for the following Sunday with the host church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Whitesburg, Georgia, where we were able to present our burden for Australia. From there, we traveled up to Pineville, North Carolina, to be with South Charlotte Baptist Church for their Missions Conference. We enjoyed getting to minister to the Christian school, the nursing home, the Children’s Ministry, and the senior saints. At the conclusion of the meeting, the church took a vote and voted to support us! We ended the month in Jacksonville, Florida, at Temple Baptist Church and had a wonderful time of preaching and fellowship!
We would like to welcome our new supporters for this month: Peoples Baptist Church of McDonough, Georgia; South Charlotte Baptist Church of Pineville, North Carolina; and Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Whitesburg, Georgia. We are so thankful for those who have chosen to partner with us in reaching the lost of Australia! Please continue to pray as we book more meetings, travel to more churches, and seek to spread the Gospel of Jesus!
Your servant in Christ,
