Dear Soldiers of the Cross,
We trust you are doing well and enjoying this beautiful spring time weather. We left from a snowy season to a very wet season. We have had record rainfall in our area but praise the Lord, the Lord is in control of each drop and we will not receive one drop more than he wills.
We had a great opportunity to attend Home Missions Meeting in Englewood Colorado in March. God met with us in a special way through the Preaching, singing and fellowship of the Saints. There were over 50 Missionaries present in the meetings and a host of other Pastors.
We had a true Revival brake out at our home church, (Hoopers Creek Baptist Church) and it lasted for almost 2 weeks. The meeting was not called for, it just happened. We thank the Lord we were available to attend most of it. We had 6 saved and many revived.
For those of you that will be joining us on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona for our building project on the 13th of May, please take the time and review our dress code while we are there. We have an invitation to this Reservation and Strong Hold Baptist Church, and we must be respectable guests. We want to present ourselves as “SAVED” Christians in word, deed and lifestyle.
|1.||Dress modest as Christians.|
|2.||Remember warm days and cool nights, so dress accordingly.|
|3.||Men: casual dress, polo shirts, jeans and khaki pants, etc. for church services.|
|4.||Ladies: jean, khaki and other type casual skirts or dresses, casual shoes.|
|5.||No clothing with inappropriate language or signs.|
|6.||Bring only KJV Bibles.|
We ask that you keep each one traveling with us in your prayers, that God would be pleased to give us all a safe and trouble-free trip and the work prosperous. Also pray that God would give great liberty to all, in witnessing for him.
If you would like to help financially with this building project you can send your support to the Native American Mission Fund Ministries (NAMFM) and mark it, to the Strong Hold Baptist Church Project. The mailing address is 3232 Hendersonville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768.
