After a few weeks off following the birth of Elena and holidays with family, the Germanos began the first Sunday of 2015 with a Mission Sunday in East Bend, NC. Mt. Bethel Baptist Church and Pastor Watts invited us to join them for this exciting day on their church calendar. We enjoyed the opportunity to teach in Sunday school and testify of what the Lord has done in our lives. It was a joy to hear Dr. Scott Caudill share from the Word of God in both services.
On Wednesday January 7, Stephanie and I celebrated four years of marriage! It was great to reflect on what God has done in our lives, and we are so thankful that God brought us together. I am blessed to have a wonderful help meet by my side as we seek to accomplish what the Lord has for us!
From January 8-9, we made our way down to Wilson, NC to participate in the end of the mission’s conference at Trinity Baptist Church. Pastor Renfrow and the church made us feel right at home. We were thankful for the privilege to present the work in the Dominican. As always, our hearts were blessed and challenged from the preaching of the president of World Wide, Dr. Danny Whetstone! We received word today that the church is partnering with us in the DR!
We are rejoicing in what God has done throughout our deputation. We are now over 70% of our needed support along with several new churches that have voted to begin financial partnership with us this month! Our outfit and passage fund is now in the final stretch at over 90%! Thank you so much for your prayers. We would ask that you pray with us that we would be able to move to the Dominican Republic this coming summer!
