Mary Alice Fox just reminded me that her pastor in Gastonia, NC will be traveling to Slovachia to speak at the AGM (Annual General Meeting) for our missionaries in that area). The Hatchels will be leaving in the morning. Rev. Jeff Long and his daughter left today. I think Bro. Jeff is the main speaker. Pray for them and all the others who will be working with the missionaries and MK’s next week. Thank God for the volunteers who go to all the regional AGM meetings to minister as medical staff, counselors, VBS workers, etc. Pray for safe traveling for all involved. The Hatchels will travel tomorrow.
Nancy Pledger sent an email saying two young men, Logan McConathy and Dakota Byrd, from FBC in Natchitoches will be volunteering in Romania. Isn’t it wonderful how God makes so many connections in our lives? I think it is a reassurance that many Christians are willing to go and do what they have learned at church and through Bible study. When Christians make themselves available to pray, give, and go they must be prepared for the assignment the Lord gives them. Thank God these two young me were willing to do more than just pray and give.
Thank God for the many youth and adults who gave love, time, and talents to make VBS possible this week. VBS doesn’t just happen! The VBS director this year was Judy Fowler. Please express your appreciation to her and all the others who made VBS possible. Pray for each family touched by VBS. Pray for the VBS efforts in other churches in the coming weeks.
