We were able to return to our home and sending church and help out in the completion of the reconstruction following the fire we faced in January 2013. It was a joy to see our church family, to labor alongside them and the pastor in restoring the building, and to attend the first Sunday services back in the church building.
On Sunday, September 22, we attended Inner City Baptist Church in Mt. Ephraim, NJ with Pastor Anthony Garris. The Lord has allowed our church to support Brother Garris as he plants churches in the Camden area, and we were excited to present our ministry to the church. It is amazing to see the full circle as these new church plants are beginning to support missions!
This past week, Pastor Venable invited us to take part in our home church’s mission conference. He graciously allowed us to preach, teach, and sing (along with staying in his home) during the week. On Sunday, September 29, Faith Community Baptist Church commissioned our family as their missionaries to the Dominican Republic. We are so thankful for a pastor and church who take care of their own and who prayerfully and financially support us as we do the work God has given us.
Also, praise the Lord for another supporting church! We appreciate your prayers, and we know God is faithful to hear and answer our prayers!
