Prayer Letter August 2018

Not in Vain …

(1Cor 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Given a chance, the evil one will put blinkers on our eyes to veil this great truth: our “labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Our Lord Jesus taught the parable of the Sower and the Seed in Matthew 13. Of the four types of soil spoken of, only one of them produced fruit. How discouraging! Has it ever seemed to you that much of your labor in your life is fruitless? Never let your train of thought take you down that slippery slope. Take God at His Word!

Thank you for praying for Linda. She had two major medical tests done this month, and neither one indicated anything serious. She was very relieved at this news. There are a few minor issues, but nothing to worry about, praise His holy Name!

Please do remember Rock of Ages missionary, Bro. Richard P., in your prayer time. He is undergoing chemotherapy treatment, and the side effects are hindering his ability to be as effective as he usually would be as our Georgia State coordinator.

Our labor was not in vain as we ministered in Whitworth Women’s Prison this month. Linda was not able to go because the paperwork for renewing her badge got hung up in the system. This was a big disappointment for us, but the Lord blessed in the services. Several of God’s children received help for their Christian walk, and 28 ladies made a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. In Florida, I labored with Bro. Tim M. at Northwest Florida Reception Center and Okaloosa Correctional Institution with three precious souls receiving Christ. Four men were saved at Haralson County Jail, also.

I preached a Wed-Sun revival meeting in Glennville, GA, this month at Lighthouse Baptist Church, where Bro. Rusty Wooten is the pastor. I believe many of God’s people got some help in their Christian walk. Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you, Bro. Wooten!
