February Prayer Letter

February 2017

Dear Soldiers of the Cross,

We hope you are enjoying these snowy wintery days and that God has a flaming fire blazing in your soul. Even in the mist of coldness and deadness we can still rejoice over the good things of God: WHY?  We are looking unto our Savior and not to the things of this world. Psalm 121:1-2 “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.”

The Lord is still opening many doors of opportunity for us to share our Native missions burden with other churches. I feel God is touching the hearts of his people in these last days to get the blessed Gospel to the lost and dying world. Please keep us in your prayers that we will stay the course in getting the Gospel out to as many as we can before his return.

Share-a-Thon 2017 was a GREAT success with all budgets met for WGCR 720 AM Radio – 94.9FM and also WGCR.net. We praise God for touching the hearts of his people to come together and fulfill this worthy outreach ministry. We enjoyed a tremendous week of preaching, singing, eating and great fellowship with the saints of God. Let me put it this way, we had Heaven on earth. GOD DID IT. Please take the time and tune-in and enjoy these resources God has given us.

Time is getting closer to our summer missions project for 2017. Lord willing, our first work day will be May 22nd, on the Fort Hall Reservation near Blackfoot, Idaho. We are building a fellowship hall on the reservation at the Faith Baptist Church where Bro Joe Copley is missionary / pastor. Please make your plans to join us and put your hand to the plow for the glory of the Lord. I have said this and will say it again, a mission-minded church will say, “Bro, we will pray for you,” but a mission-hearted church will say, “What can I do to help? There is a difference.  Which are you? We have a block of rooms held at the Best Western Pocatello Inn, 1415 Bench Rd, Pocatello, Idaho  83201, Office: 208-237-7650, Fax: 208-238-1355. The rate will be $85 + tax. Please call them and secure your rooms before April 24th. We realize that not everyone that would like to come and work is able to, but we do ask that you and your church consider helping with the construction supplies. You can send your financial support to Faith Baptist Church, C/O Pastor Joe Copley, 243 N University Ave, Blackfoot, ID 83221, or you may want to send it through the Native American Mission Fund Ministries (NAMFM), 3232 Hendersonville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768. We also have an account for this project set up at the Lowes store, and if you would like you may make your contribution there. The escrow account # is 604409WBQDL04147 and the project name is Faith Baptist Church. Looking forward to seeing you there or hearing from you.

As We Labor for Christ,

Gerry & Sheril Locklear
