July-August 2016 Prayer Letter

Dear Pastor, Church Family, and Co-laborers,

      Greetings in the wonderful name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we trust this letter finds each of you enjoying the many blessings of our wonderful Saviour! The Lord truly has blessed our family and we are grateful for His goodness unto us!

            We started out July preaching a youth camp for Calvary B/C of Amory MS. The Lord blessed this week and we had a wonderful time trying to encourage these fine young people to follow the Lord with all their heart! From here we traveled back to be at Craggy Correctional where we had a young man call on God for salvation! The Lord has blessed our ministry at this facility over the years, and recently we received news that one young man that had came to our services had gotten released and went to a local church, got saved, baptized, joined the church, and is attending services faithfully! It is a joy to know that God is changing lives and using these men after they leave the facility! This is fruit that abounds to your account. Then we were at Yancey County Jail for our regular services there. We were able to conduct five different services and saw four men call on the Lord for salvation! We also were allowed to be at the Buncombe County Jail several times in July and had two men ask the Lord in their hearts during our services there. The Lord also allowed us to preach in a missions revival at Faith B/C in Greenville GA. This was a wonderful week and we greatly enjoyed all that the Lord did during this meeting. We ended out the month of July at another youth camp in Marion NC with the fine people of Harvest B/C. The Lord blessed this camp and we had a wonderful time in the Lord!

August was a very busy month as well, with services back at Craggy Correctional, Buncombe Jail, and Yancey County Jail.  The Lord blessed in each of these services and many were encouraged in the Lord! Please pray for the men in these facilities that we minister to on a regular basis. It is our desire that they not only accept the Lord as their saviour but also grow in their faith and continue to serve Him in the days ahead! We also were blessed with the privilege to be a part of revival services at Oak Grove B/C in Flat Rock NC and Windom B/C in Burnsville NC! We are very thankful for all that the Lord done in these churches and are thankful for the opportunity to be used of the Lord! As we close out the month of August we are preparing to start another year at the public school teaching the character lessons. This will be our sixth year in the school and we ask that you help us pray that God will do great and mighty things there this year.

             Our youngest daughter, Emily, is having some health issues and the doctors are not sure what is going on with her! Please help us pray about this situation. This has been a very hard time, especially for her. Please ask the Lord to touch her and give the doctors wisdom. Also, pray for us as we travel and do the work God has called us to do. We have a very busy schedule in the days ahead and we are asking the Lord to do great things.

 If anyone would like for us to come by and give and update or just share what the Lord is doing just let us know and we would love to come by. We have some Sundays open during the next couple months and we are praying that the Lord would fill those dates. Thanks again for all you do for our family. May the grace of our precious Lord be with you all.                                                                                                                                                            

        There Is Hope,

                      Todd, Missy, Abbey, & Emily
