After a few weeks of no meetings, we were very ready to be back on the road traveling! Our first stop was at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, Pastor Jason Gaddis. After attending Heartland Baptist Bible College and Southwest for four years, it was weird to be one of the "special guests"! We had a great time spending the day with them during their Mid-Summer Missions Sunday. It was such a blessing to be around old friends and church family!
Our next stop was in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee at Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Ayres. After presenting our ministry on Sunday, we helped out with their Vacation Bible School all week long. It was such a great time, and the Lord truly blessed with seeing five souls saved. James and I both had the opportunity to lead a young person to the Lord. The young lady I led to the Lord, Maria came back the next day with her cousin. She said to me, "Can you tell her how to get saved too? You explained it so well to me and I thought you could help her understand what saved means." It was such a blessing to hear that. She was so excited to tell her cousin about salvation and she truly understood. Praise the Lord!
We finished off the month in Lewisville, Texas at Liberty Baptist, Pastor Dick Webster. We had a wonderful time getting to know Bro. Webster and his wife for the couple of days we were in town. He was truly an encouragement to us! Missions has a special place in his heart as he too was a missionary, and his children also serve on the mission field.
As August is upon us, we look forward to staying busy! By the end of this month we will be Alaska bound! We appreciate your prayers as we travel. The Lord has truly blessed and taken care of us as we serve Him on the road of deputation! We can't say enough, how amazing is our God!
