Family Week for WWNTBM and Meeting at Trinity Baptist Church

photoWe had the privilege to attend Family Fellowship Week for our mission board from June 17-20, 2013 at Memorial Baptist Church in Ocala, FL. It was a joy to meet many missionaries serving with our board along with the board members. Also, we had a small college reunion with some of our fellow missionaries the Browns, Knickerbockers, McElreaths, and Rebekah Pari.

Afterwards, we were able to spend a few days with my sister and her husband in St. Petersburg, FL before we traveled to our next meeting. We visited North Gainesville Baptist Church on Sunday morning before heading to Trinity Baptist Church in Milton, FL to present the work and preach. We enjoyed the fellowship with the church and with Pastor Paul Woody, who served as a missionary to the Dominican Republic for 8 years.

Father’s Day meeting at Pleasant View Baptist Church

We had the privilege to be at Pleasant View Baptist Church in Eden, North Carolina with Pastor Torrey Easler. We enjoyed the opportunity to share our testimonies in Sunday school, present the work in the morning service, and preach in the evening service. We enjoyed the good fellowship with Pastor and Mrs. Easler and the church family. This week we are in Ocala, FL for family week with World Wide New Testament Baptist Mission and Memorial Baptist Church.

Mission’s Conference in Smithfield, VA and Future Plans

     It was a joy to attend the mission’s conference at the church where I was raised! Calvary Baptist Church and Pastor Gray have been such a blessing to us throughout the years. We were excited to see old friends as well as meet new faces. The growth, sweet spirit, and enthusiasm among the congregation was very encouraging. We were able to preach, sing, give testimonies, and present the work throughout the week. It was also a pleasure to minister with Gabe, Susan, and Benjamin Eiben, missionaries to Micronesia who served with us at Calvary and are serving with us with WWNTBM. We praise the Lord that the church exceeded their faith promise goal and added us to their missionary family.  On a personal note, we were blessed to stay with Tim’s mom and dad during the conference and enjoy their fellowship…and home cooking!

Praises:

We are currently at 13% of our needed support!

Prayer requests:

We covet your prayers as we will be finishing our work at Faith Community Baptist Church in Downingtown, PA to begin full time deputation in June 2013.

First Mission’s Conference – March 24-27, 2013

First Mission’s Conference

Wphotoe had the privilege of taking part in our first ever mission’s meeting this past week. Pastor Hall and Delaware County Baptist Church in Havertown, PA graciously invited us to join them in their annual mission’s conference. The pastor and people of the church were so friendly, kind, and giving. We were able to share our testimonies and present the work on Sunday evening, and we were able to sing on Monday night. It was good to be able to meet some of their missionaries who are sent out of area churches to the Spanish people in Philadelphia, to the people of Mexico City, and the president of Atlantic Coast Bible College. Also, we enjoyed spending time with Anthony and Brenda Garris, missionaries supported by our sending church to the people of Camden, NJ.
