On Wednesday, April 22, we made our way to Springfield, TN to participate in the midweek prayer meeting at South Haven Baptist Church. Pastor Gagliano and the church family made us feel very much at home. We enjoyed the song service, and Tim was able to present the work and share a message from God’s Word. At the conclusion of the service, the church voted to immediately take us on for support!
From Friday to Sunday, April 24-26, we took part in the mission conference at Grace Baptist Church in Alpine, TN. It was a refreshing weekend to spend with Pastor Copeland and this wonderful church family. We were blessed to sing specials, teach, preach, and give our ministry presentation. We also enjoyed hearing Dr. Whetstone, our mission president, powerfully preach from the Bible.
On Wednesday, April 29, we were warmly welcomed in Welcome, NC at Lighthouse Baptist Church. It was a blessing to fellowship with Pastor Varnadore and his family before service as well as get to know the congregation. Tim, as always, enjoyed sharing the work and Word of God.
On Saturday and Sunday, May 2-3, we headed back to southwest Virginia to attend Chilhowie Baptist Church in Chilhowie, VA. Stephanie was able to take part of their annual spring ladies banquet and hear the director’s wife from Reformers Unanimous share with the church. On Sunday, we were encouraged to hear the director of RU, Brother Burks give the messages. We were able to set up a display, sing in the morning service, and share the ministry. We look forward to returning to the church in July to celebrate the wedding for Tim’s youngest brother!
We are looking forward to observing Mother’s Day in the coming week. We are grateful for our godly mothers! I am also so thankful for Stephanie, my faithful wife and mother of our children, who travels with me on the deputation trail and the journey of life. God has greatly blessed me with an amazing help meet!
