On Wednesday, August 20, Grace Community Baptist Fellowship in Ramseur, NC invited us to come and present the work at their midweek prayer meeting. It is always a joy to speak about the work in the Dominican Republic as well as preach. Pastor Greene was a gracious host, and the children of the church had many great questions about the DR.
On Sunday, August 24, we headed for our first Georgia meeting in Rutledge. We were excited to meet Philadelphia Baptist Church and Pastor Love. Tim was able to teach the adult Sunday school class as well as preach the evening service. Our hearts were encouraged and challenged also by our host family who were veteran missionaries to Japan for many years.
On Sunday, August 31, we drove to Lexington, NC to be with Currytown Baptist Church. It was refreshing having a time of fellowship with Pastor McDaniel and his family. At the end of the evening service after presenting the ministry, the church voted to take us on and had a time of prayer around our family at the altar.
It is truly a blessing to travel on the deputation trail as we have come in contact with and befriended many fellow believers all along the east coast. We are at 58% support with two more churches coming alongside us financially in the past three days! Praise the Lord!
