We have had a spring season on the deputation trail! We know your prayers have helped us to have successful and safe travels. We have been many miles, but have not had any incidents on the road. Praise the Lord!
We enjoyed an excellent conference in Big Spring, TX with the Trinity Baptist Church. Their missionary closet was a special blessing. We were able to pick out many helpful items that we needed. Mark got a new suitcase as his Goodwill special needed to be replaced. They chose to become ministry partners in prayer and support!
We just finished another great conference with the Mt. Lake Independent Baptist Church of Oakland, MD. We enjoyed the times of food, fun, fellowship, and great preaching. These dear folks also decided to partner with us!
We always enjoy the opportunity to meet fellow believers and make new friends at each church. We are excited to begin a true connection of fellowship with these two new supporting churches!
Getting the Word Out
One exciting event was the gospel literature blitz on Saturday morning. All of the missionaries and many of the church members split into two teams to distribute gospel literature. We each had half an hour to canvas our assigned neighborhoods. There was a friendly competition to see which team distributed the most tracts. We had opportunity to speak with several people that were outside enjoying the excellent weather. Sadly our group lost the competition, but we passed several hundred tracts giving many people a chance to read and understand the gospel!
We look forward to the opportunity to do the same in Suriname, the field where God has called us!
