We were blessed to hear from home this week! A young man from our route asked the Lord to save his soul! Andrew is a young father that has attended church with his family for a few years now. His wife was saved and baptized last year so it has been such a blessing to see this family come to Christ.  This is what it’s all about folks! Keep inviting people to church, keep reaching out to the world and let Christ work in their hearts. You never know who is listening! 

Rescue the perishing, duty demands it; Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide; Back to the narrow way patiently win them; Tell the poor wand’rer a Savior has died.”

It was one of those mornings…we had traveled several hours the day before and arrived at our hotel late. The kids were full of energy and I was doing my best to keep up. :) The three of us finished our breakfast at the hotel and started to leave when a lady approached us. She told me it had been a treat to watch the kids enjoy their breakfast. She then asked where we were from and I told her we were missionaries to the Philippines.  She smiled, “Thank you so much for what you do! We’re Baptists and we love how God is using missionaries around the world!” I took the kids back to our room and realized that I completely forgot to get Chris his breakfast! I ran back downstairs, a little flustered. This time the lady’s husband approached me. He said, “Are you and your husband missionaries?” I smiled, “Yes, sir.” He reached for my hand and gave me a one hundred dollar bill. I stood there in shock. I didn’t know these people. We weren’t even in church! This was a morning I was just trying to survive. My eyes teared up as I thanked this couple for being a blessing!  Here I was in a hotel in Texas when the Lord brought this dear couple across my path. God let me know I was on His mind, even when I wasn’t expecting it.

fbbc_church-God has blessed us with a wonderful church family! We enjoyed being with them again last week for their annual missions conference. Being there during this special time brought back so many memories. I remember when I was just a teenager staring at my faith promise card, wondering how much I should give. My first faith promise pledge was just 5 cents a week. It wasn’t much but God used it to grow my faith. Over the years my faith promise has grown and God has always provided so that I could give.  Malachi 3:10 “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse…and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”  That verse has been so true in my life! I believe God has blessed me and my family because one day I decided to give to missions. Not because I’m special, but because as a 15 year boy, I decided to prove God. And He has never failed me.  Step out Christian and watch God do the impossible!

I just want to take a moment to praise the Lord for providing our needs! When we first made plans to return to the States, one of our biggest concerns was a vehicle. Before we even arrived in the USA, God answered our prayers in a miraculous way! Our home church, under the leadership of Pastor Kohl, provided us with a brand new vehicle! We were blown away by God’s goodness and the care of God’s people. We have been so blessed by the support and love of our home church.  In our short lives, we have been privileged to see God do some amazing things and we are so thankful!

Psalm 150:1-2~Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
