It’s always so wonderful to be in your hometown. I love to reminisce and think of all the memories that reside here in the town I grew up in. It’s also wonderful to see all the people that have truly made an impact in our lives! We have been very blessed to see many friends and family this week back in Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and Burlington area.
We, of course, always enjoy sweet time with Hannah’s family every time we are in the Winston-Salem area. We enjoyed some sweet fellowship with Hannah’s grandparents before they headed south again to Florida. We also enjoyed time with Hannah’s parents, and her Aunt Mendy and Uncle Gray (never got a picture). 🙁
We thoroughly enjoyed worshipping on Sunday morning with our sending church, Calvary Chapel Fellowship, and worshipping Sunday evening in Union Grove Baptist Church, where Hannah grew up.
On Monday, we were excited to travel to Burlington for the day. We were able to see our dear friends, Jeremy and Tiffany, and even get to see our wonderful MAG team. We are always so encouraged to see all of them.
This sweet couple was my youth pastor/youth pastor’s wife my last two years of high school. These two have truly invested in my life and continue to! They are the ones who encouraged me to pursue full-time ministry and spend at least one year in Bible college (Word of Life). Tiffany was the one who encouraged me to wait patiently for a Godly husband. I’m so thankful for them and words could never express the love I have for them. We loved sharing our ministry with them and it was wonderful seeing them.
The rest of the week we had various appointments with individuals, pastors, and churches. I wasn’t able to get pictures with everyone. We were so thankful for all these opportunities! A lot of the people we met with have pledged to support us monthly. We were even able to visit Piedmont International University, where it all began for us, and see a lot of our favorite professors.
We were given the opportunity to share our heart and passion in a Spanish small group. David did most of the sharing in Spanish, but I did get to share some in my broken Spanish. I can’t wait to be fluent like him! 🙂
We came home from Winston-Salem on Friday and enjoyed some down time in Shelby. On Sunday, August 16th, we spoke in the morning service at Drury Dobbins Baptist Church in Ellenboro, NC. Our wonderful friends, Chris and Amanda Hensley, invited us to come share. Chris is the pastor of this wonderful church. The congregation was so warm and welcoming towards us. They even had a potluck lunch after the service. The food and fellowship was wonderful!
We enjoyed sharing our heart for Honduras. This church was very giving and are eager to get involved in our ministry.
Our Upcoming Schedule
Sunday, August 23rd- Ivanhoe Baptist Church in Wilmington, NC
Sunday, August 30th- Open
Sunday, September 6th- Zoar Baptist Church (Home Church in Shelby, NC)
Sunday, September 13th- New Ground Church in Danville, Virginia
Our schedule is constantly growing and changing. We have numerous individual appointments throughout each week and are thankful to share with others about how they can be involved. If you’d like to hear more about how you can be involved in our ministry, let us know! 🙂
Monthly support level continues to climb as we take on new pledges weekly! Right now, our monthly support is at a steady 44%, but it really is more than that once all our pledges come through. We have numerous families and churches that are in the process of taking us on, and we are patiently waiting.
1% of needed support = $50.00 a month.
We also have supporters doing anywhere from $10.00 on up. Would you consider doing a dollar a day =$30.00 a month?
Would YOU help us pray that God would continue to help us reach the 50% milestone? Will YOU get involved in helping send us to Honduras?
