Dear Pastors & Praying Friends,
We have finished our fourth month of furlough. It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun!
We had nine meetings in the month of December in the states of Maryland, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Most of them were with supporting churches. It never ceases to amazes us how faithful our supporting churches are. It has been nearly nine years since we have been to some of them, but they are still praying for us and supporting us.
During December, Teri and I were able to go away for a few days to a cabin in North Georgia. This getaway was provided by some kind friends at our home church. The last two weeks of the month we were in the Mobile, Alabama area visiting with Teri’s family. It was nice to preach at my father-in-law’s church and to visit with them over Christmas.
We finished out the year at the annual Our Generation Summit. We try to promote this special missions retreat every year, so it was nice to be able to attend it in person. God worked in a powerful way with many people surrendering their lives to missions. Over twenty missionaries were present, and I believe that many people went away greatly challenged!
I am very excited because Missionary Chris Waye and I will be in Northern Ireland from January 9-15 visiting the folks at Northwest Baptist Church, teaching a class on discipleship, and encouraging the folks there. Please pray for God’s continued blessing on the work there.
Enclosed is an invitation to a missions camp hosted by our home church at Fort Bluff Camp in Dayton, TN. This is a very unique opportunity to have a summer camp with a missions emphasis. Many missionaries will be there teaching young people in high school and college. For more info go to visionbaptistmissions.com.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Please pray for souls to be saved in Northern Ireland, for the church to grow, and for God to raise up laborers. Please pray for health, safety, and provision as we travel. Please pray for God to help us raise an additional 20% of our support while we are in the States until July of this year.
Thank you so much. May God richly bless you in this new year.
– Travis & Teri Snode
