The president of our mission board, Danny Whetstone, was the main speaker for the conference this last week in Cayce, SC. We thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship, the food, and the uplifting meetings at the Gantt Street Baptist Church.
"What matters is not what people think we are but what God knows us to be." - Danny Whetstone
North Stonington Baptist Church was our first destination for this year. This church building was built in the 1800s. It was a joy for Julie and I to hear about the history of this church and it was an honor to present our ministry before the members of it. We praise God that the cause of Christ is advancing in this community and we are especially encouraged to witness the enthusiasm of God's people for the cause of world evangelism.
The Lord gave us a blessed Christmas with Julie's family. We had many opportunities to give our testimony to Julie's extended family members who asked us what we did for a living. We are grateful to God for the opportunities to plant the seed of His precious and eternal Word in their hearts and minds. Please help us pray that the seed of God's Word would not return void. Pray also for Julie's father, Philip, that he may have the joy of leading some family members to Christ this year.
For the first time in my life, I drove a snowmobile. It was a lot of fun. We also helped Julie's father with some house renovations. Julie had a great time picking out verses to write on the wall as a way to impact the lost family members that visit on occasions.
