Prayer Letter August 2021
Hello Supporting Friends and Family,
It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone. August was a good month for us here in Georgia. We are thankful for all the Lord allowed us to do.
In August we continued to work with Pastor Wayne Cooke at Believer’s Baptist Church. We were able to lead the music and continue outreach into the community. It was a great month at Believer’s Baptist as there were many new visitors. Please pray with us that the Lord would continue to grow the church and souls would be saved.
At the beginning of the month, I had the opportunity to preach a 5-minute message in the Spanish ministry at Vision Baptist Church. I am always thankful for the opportunity to preach God’s word.
Update on Tom:
Last month I mentioned prayer for a man named Tom that I met while door knocking. This man was against going to church, but he agreed to meet with me at a coffee shop to study the Bible. I was able to meet with him the second week of August for a Bible study. Tom was attentive and asked many questions as I showed him the gospel and many great scriptures. I believe that Tom is lost and trusting in his own works for his salvation. Tom did not get saved on that day, but I know that he heard the gospel and knows how to be saved. I also gave him a Bible so he could read on his own.
Since then, Tom closed the door for further Bible study. Although this is disappointing, I am encouraged to know that God can still work in his heart. Tom heard the gospel. Now it is up to the Lord to continue to work in his heart. Please pray for Tom that he would be saved.
The last weekend of August, Christen and I were back in Tennessee. I had the opportunity to preach for a Youth Sunday service at a church in Sweetwater, Tennessee. We are very thankful for the opportunity to minister in this way.
While we were back in Tennessee, we were also able to spend time at our home church, Woodlawn Baptist Church. It was great to see our church family again and be with them in service. While we were there, we were also given the chance to sing with the young people of the church and our family.
Thank you for all of your love and support. We know that we could not do all of this without great friends and family.
Pray that we would continue to grow and receive all of the training and preparation that we need for the foreign mission field.
Pray for us as we continue to work with Pastor Wayne Cooke at Believer’s Baptist Church. Pray for church growth, community impact, and salvation of souls.
Pray for Tom and his salvation.
Pray that the Lord would give us more opportunities to share the gospel with those around us.
Please continue to pray for us as we continue to seek where the Lord would have us to serve overseas.
