While we were waiting for God to provide a church to send us to Argentina, we visited a few churches to present our work. Our main hope in those visits was to see if God might provide a sending church. Churches we visited during this time were Calvary Baptist Church of Three Rivers, Michigan (June 2015) and Calvary Missionary Baptist Church of Livingston, Tx (December 2015).
We visited Nevill’s Chapel Baptist Church on April 3rd, 2016 after our last Sunday in Moss Hill, TX.
Walnut Street Baptist Church of Hillsboro, TX had us come out the following Sunday, April 10th.
That night Nevill’s Chapel called us to let us know they voted unanimously to sponsor us as Missionaries to Argentina. You can read more about our sending church in our previous post entitled – A Sending Church!!!
We left our children with grandparents in Hillsboro, TX and traveled to North Little Rock, Arkansas for the World Mission Seminar. We spent a very information packed two weeks learning from many veteran missionaries and pastors with special classes thrown in for the ladies. There is always something new to learn. We highly recommend everyone that has any heart for mission work to attend one of the seminars.
After the seminar ended Friday afternoon of April 22nd, we traveled back to Hillsboro, Tx to pick up our children and very early Saturday morning we loaded up in our Suburban and headed on a 4 hour trip to Hermleigh, TX for their district Ladies Auxiliary meeting and Mission Rally. Scott was given a moment to speak during the missionary share time at the meeting.
After the meeting ended we drove to Lubbock, Tx, checked into our hotel, and enjoyed pizza and games at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza with Bro. Monty & Sis. Terry Hilliard.
We visited Quaker Avenue Missionary Baptist Church the next morning for their services. We set up a table with information about Argentina and our new prayer cards. Then Scott spoke to one of the youth classes with Hannah, Jonathan, and Elijah. After Sunday School he gave our presentation and sermon after the morning worship service.
This coming Sunday we have an appointment at Mt. Sylvia Missionary Baptist Church of Mt. Pleasant, TX and that evening we will be attending Nevill’s Chapel again to officially move all our church memberships there.
We have exciting times ahead. We are working on our first monthly newsletter so join our email list if you haven’t already to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
We want to thank everyone for praying for us. God is moving in mighty ways. Now we’re trying to tie up all our loose ends and make more deputation appointments.
Right now we are starting local deputation on the weekends and then going into full time deputation in August.
Please continue to pray for us that we get through this transition as quickly as possible and that we raise the prayer and financial support we need to move onto the field in Argentina.
