Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1
Before missionary service I worked full-time in a commercial bakery, disinfecting floor drains and sumps. For two years, I handed out Gospel tracts for any special event. In July 2014, I quit for the mission field. I have not seen any co-workers since.
During a recent midweek service, our prayer group leader asked about a co-worker from that time. She remembered a tract I gave her at work over 4 years ago. The leader told me she received salvation and now attends church with her kids.
Serving in Mongolia from July 2014 to June 2015, we handed out tracts every Saturday, and separately during the week. On average, three times in two months a visitor would come to Straight Paths Baptist Church with a tract. This year I learned of a visitor who got a tract from us, and now takes salvation lessons. God’s Word prospers where He sends it (Isaiah 55:11), and He will make Gospel tracts part of your testimony.
On June 3, 2018, we visited Union City Baptist Temple, in Union City, Tennessee, our last stop before service in Africa. I preached, and Judy taught the ladies’ Sunday School. We thank Pastor and Mrs. Tony Keeton for their time and fellowship. Like many churches we visited, we are encouraged by the expansion at Union City Baptist.
Pray for souls in Africa (June 27 to September 4); Ulen, Minnesota (September to October); and Peru, Maine (November to December); as we assist pastors in these locations. Pray also for meetings.
