Deputation is officially underway and we have “hit the ground running”. Our first meeting was this past Sunday at Tabernacle Baptist Church in Wilson, NC with Pastor Joe Shakour. After the morning service, some of the men gathered around us and prayed that God would bless our ministry in Arizona. We were blessed by the outpouring of love that we were shown at this church. It was truly a wonderful way to begin our journey to Arizona.
Ray had the opportunity to preach at a missions conference this week at Wayside Baptist Church in Hillsborough, NC with Pastor Brad Williams. It was great to be challenged in missions and have the opportunity to meet other church planters.
It is humbling and uplifting to our spirits to see God begin to provide for our needs without us having to even ask anyone besides Him. We are amazed at all the details that He is working out for us as we take each new step of faith. We look forward to sharing some of these details soon.
- Safety of travel as we head to Hilliard, Fl next week to do a week long revival at First Avenue Baptist Church. Pray that God would prepare hearts even now.
- Pray for Robin’s health. She has had pleurisy for about 3 weeks now and it is still persisting. She developed this inflammation around the lining of her lung following bronchitis and it causes her much pain.
