CHURCHES IN SOUTH AFRICA FLOURISHING We praise the Lord for the incredible reports we get from South Africa. It thrills our soul to see God using the men and women that were raised up over these past 4yrs in South Africa. Pastor Stefan sent me a voice message just the other day letting me know of young men he is discipling. He would really appreciate you praying for them - Jan, and John Luke. Also pray as they should be having a baptismal service for 5 people real soon. Continue to pray for Pastor Stefan and his family as they serve the Lord leading Grace Baptist Church. There are so many wonderful servants of God in this church.
GOD ANSWERING PRAYER GIVING US NEW PARTNERING CHURCHES We have had some great meetings this month. We started off at Cherokee Valley Baptist Church in Ringgold, GA. We were able to report in to this church that has supported us for many years now. It’s always a blessing to fellowship with Pastor Ridley and this church body.
We then attended Vision Baptist Church’s Missions conference. I was honored to preach the first night. This is a missionary loving, sending, and supporting church. It was great being with teammates, and hearing great messages by other missionaries such as Kevin White to Bolivia. You can hear the messages at https://visionbaptist.com/.
We were also at Linwood Baptist Church in LaFayette, GA. Pastor Jon Alverson was kind enough to let us come by and say a few words in the service. He preached a great message and gave us a kind love offering to help us on our way. We hope that they will be able to partner with us as we head back to South Africa.
We then headed up to Mattoon, IL for a revival at Bible Baptist Church, Pastor Ryan Hayden. To be honest this was my first time ever preaching a revival meeting. We had a great time with the Hayden family. Pastor Hayden’s wife is from our sending church. We actually got to eat at the original Burger King which is in Mattoon (Clark’s favorite burger joint). They treated us with great hospitality and we hope we will be able to partner together for the gospel in South Africa. I believe we will see this family in South Africa on a mission’s trip soon!
We followed that conference up with a missions conference at Zion Hill Baptist Church in Greenville, SC. Pastor Danny Moore is the pastor here. We have known him for a looong time but this was somehow our first time being in his church for an actual meeting. We had a FANTASTIC time. The fellowship, the other missionaries, and hospitality were truly refreshing. We hope to be able to partner with Zion Hill Baptist Church!
This past weekend we were with Ebenezer Baptist Church in Ringgold, GA, Pastor Joe McEntire. We had a great meeting here. We heard a great message in the am service and were privileged to speak in the evening service. This church is close to home and seemed very receptive to the message. It seemed like there is a good possibility of this church partnering with us for the gospel in the near future!
We are super thankful for how God is answering our prayers for new supporting churches before we head back to South Africa next year. Please pray for that if you don’t mind. Again, let me say if you know of a church that would have us in between now and April of next year to help raise new support please let us know. We still have dates available.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and support! Doing Our Reasonable Service,
Kevin, Corli, Clark, Hudson and Lana Hall
