May 2020 Update
Our last in-person meeting was on March 22nd. Since then we have enjoyed presenting and preaching for several churches through live and recorded video. Several churches sent offerings even though our meetings had been cancelled or done over the internet. We are very grateful for all those who have reached out to us at this time and have been a blessing to us. We also had two new churches begin supporting us this month!
These “stay at home” weeks have not been idle. In addition to all the video preaching I have done for churches in America, I am still preaching a video sermon every week for Downham Baptist Church in London. I keep in touch with the folks there quite regularly and I am always encouraged with their faithfulness. Please continue to pray for the believers there to be strengthened and for opportunities for them to witness.
Several other projects have come up that we have been able to help with at our home church and mission. We have helped with a special missions program for young people ages 8-18 called the Our Generation Army. It is a special club they can join that challenges them to live out their faith and develop a vision for the world. I’d really encourage you to share this with the young people in your church.
Also, we helped with a 36-hour Share-a-thon last weekend to raise money for land for the Our Generation Training Center, a training program for future missionaries based out of our home church. The Lord blessed by helping us to raise over $105,000! We just need another $120,000 before the end of June to purchase the land which will house the training center and Vision Baptist Mission offices. If you’d like to have a part in this special project, you can send a check to Vision Baptist Missions and mark it “Center for World Evangelism” or go to worldevangelismcenter.org/give.
We are also doing quite a bit of planning and preparation for when we return to the UK in August. Please pray for wisdom.
