Prayer Letter July 2021
Hello Supporting Friends and Family,
Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. Christen and I had a great month of July. We began the month with the opportunity to travel back to Tennessee. We were able to celebrate the 1st birthday of my brother’s son. We had a great time with many friends and family members.
On Sunday, July 4th I had the opportunity to preach at two churches: Grace Baptist in Harriman, TN and our home church; Woodlawn Baptist Church in Lenoir City, TN. We had a great time seeing our many friends in these two wonderful ministries.
During the month of July, I began working with Pastor Wayne Cooke of Believer’s Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, GA. This small church was about to shut its doors, but the Lord saw fit to send Pastor Cooke who began working to revitalize the church. My wife and I were given the opportunity to work closely with this ministry as we continue to prepare for the foreign mission field. Pray for us that we can be a blessing to this ministry and see souls saved.
At the end of the month, we were able to attend the Let’s Keep It Simple Marriage Retreat with Vision Baptist Church. We really enjoyed the retreat! Pastor Wayne Cofield of Whitfield Baptist Church in Dalton, GA was the main preacher for the conference along with Bro. Austin Gardner and Dr. Jim Roberts.
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, Sanousy, Preston, and others that I was able to witness to and connect with this past month. Pray that I will get more chances with these men and that they will be saved.
Please continue to pray for us as we continue to seek where the Lord would have us to serve overseas.
We are thankful for the many great friends we have met over the years. Grace Baptist Church with Pastor Jacob Griffith has been a great blessing to us. I am thankful we were able to be at this wonderful church on July 4th.

We are very thankful that we and about 30 other couples were able to attend the Let's Keep It Simple Marriage Retreat. It was such a blessing to learn and be encouraged in marriage.
