Jonathan’s Impromptu Sermon

Sunday night, after the service at Cornerstone in Roswell, New Mexico, we enjoyed an ice cream fellowship. We also enjoyed an impromptu sermon from Jonathan on the life of David from 1 Samuel. 

Below are some pictures from the evening and a video of Jonathan’s sermon.

Resurrection Sunday 

We had a busy Sunday this Easter. Sunday morning we visited Grace Baptist Chapel in Albaquerque, NM. Scott played his viola along with the other musicians in the services. 

After the services we took our traditional Ressurection Sunday family Easter picture. This was our first Easter without our eldest son, Joshua. He is going to school at Texas Baptist Institute-Seminary.

We really enjoyed our time at Grace as we parked there and were able to enjoy several activities from various ministries they have to the community.

Then Sunday afternoon we left Albuquerque and headed to Roswell, New Mexico to attend Cornerstone Baptist Church’s evening service. Cornerstone is currently seeking a church to help them organize. We were blessed by their fellowship and are praying with them for God to provide what they need.

I will do another post about our time at Cornerstone. 

Navajo Nation, New Mexico 

Towards the end of the first week of April we drove from North Little Rock, Arkansas to Two Grey Hills, New Mexico. We left Thursday evening and arrived late Friday night. 

It was a long windy drive but we made it in plenty of time for the Four Corners Fellowship of Churches hosted by Two Grey Hills Missionary Baptist Church and their Missionary-Pastor Rusty Denny.

That Sunday morning we enjoyed worshipping with Two Grey Hills. The ladies blessed us with singing a special in the beautiful Navajo language. 

We enjoyed visiting with the members after the services. So many friends who have visited Two Grey Hills for short mission trips have asked about different members. 

Bro. James (pictured below) has had some health problems but is doing better now.

Bro. Nelson enjoyed trying some of our Argentine Maté. He tried to get some of the others to try it but they weren’t convinced. 

We had a really good time and were blessed to see the work God is doing there. 

We also got to see their beautiful new building that can be seen for miles around the area. It’s a beautiful large white building that isn’t hidden in the area.

World Missions Seminar

March 27 – April 7 we attended the World Missions Seminar hosted by Faith Missionary Baptist Church of North Little Rock, Arkansas. The first week was directed towards sponsoring church/ missionary relationships, money management, hosting missionaries, etc. 

The second week’s lessons were directed with the missionary in mind covering topics on deputation, cultural adaptation, culture shock, language acquisition, family life on the foreign field, Church planting, inter-personal relationships, Biblical conflict resolution, etc.

Bro. Lynn and Sis. Brenda Raburn did an excellent job putting the Seminar together and arranging all the wonderful speakers during the two weeks.
