October 2023 — Ministry Update

The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

John 6:33

This year’s golf tournament honoring our friend Stan Sherlin was a huge success thanks to the many sponsors and golfers! It was so good to see old and new faces this year and we had such a beautiful day! We also want to thank our many volunteers who helped us make this a great day: Leigh and Jimmy Blackwell, Katie Woodard, Dexter and Patricia Watts, Craig Clement, Nicole Pinkham, and Drew Wood.

This year’s proceeds will be used to build three churches in Northern India. We are excited to once again partner with Jiwan our ministry partner in India and to help the churches in that area. This year we raised $25,000! We are excited about getting these projects started and seeing the Lord bring many into His kingdom through these new churches!

Jeff leaves soon for Cuba with a team from Centerpoint Fellowship Church in Prattville close behind. They will be taking in much needed supplies and sharing their stories as the opportunity arises. I will be taking a team from Thorington Road Church in Montgomery on November 2. Many of you have responded by donating bread machines, and I and our Cuban friends are so thankful! For as long as I can and for as long as I have machines to take, I’ll make it a priority, because as Yunior told me, “It saved our lives.” If we can help other brothers and sisters in Cuba provide bread for their families it’s worth it. Thank you!

Then we’re going to have to take a break and get Jeff’s knee replaced (on November 15). Pray for the surgery to be successful and for a speedy recovery. No one really looks forward to these things, but it is necessary to keep him out doing what he loves!

We tell you over and over again how vitally important your work is in helping us reach the unreached, but we really can’t thank you enough. Your support and encouragement mean so much to us. If you pray, give, or go, YOU are a part of fulfilling the Great Commission. We need you more than ever to continue Teaching, Reaching, Equipping, and Comforting the lost and hurting for the sake of the Gospel. Would you consider a year end gift to help us continue the mission in 2024? There is a lot to do and people need Jesus!

Thank you for TRECing with us,
