On Wednesday, July 1, we drove across the James River to join Central Baptist Church in Yorktown, VA for their midweek service. We had a great time of fellowship with Pastor Charles and his family before the service. We enjoyed singing, presenting the work, and preaching about the ministry of the New Testament. Pastor Charles contacted us in the following week informing us of their financial support!
After having the opportunity to assist Stephanie’s dad in his church’s Vacation Bible School, we headed to Reidsville Baptist Church in Reidsville, NC on July 22 for the Wednesday night prayer meeting. Dr. Carter graciously allowed us to present the work and give the message to the congregation.
On Sunday, July 26, we took part in our last deputation meeting at Cornerstone Baptist Church in North Chesterfield, VA with Dr. Stan Bennet. We were honored to participate in their annual mission’s month by giving testimony, presenting the ministry in the Dominican Republic, and preaching about our message to give to a lost world. During the afternoon, we had a wonderful time with Sister Elba, a Dominican lady in the church, who made us a delicious Dominican meal! At the closing of the evening service, the church voted to partner with us prayerfully and financially! Our hearts were so blessed in this final meeting!
We are at 99 1/2% of our needed support! We are truly amazed at what God has done – to Him be all the glory! Lord willing, we will be posting a year/deputation in review video later this month, and we will let you know as soon as we finish it. We are asking for prayer in the following areas:
- Visa application
- Wisdom in packing and other last minute details
- A good and restful time with family and friends before we depart
Thank you so much for your faithful prayers to God on our behalf! We serve an awesome God, and we minister alongside great co-laborers in this work that God as given all of us as we share His gospel message!
