21 Jul Newsletter from Pastor Randall Moody – Second Quarter 2020
Dear Family and Friends,
Proverbs 29:22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
For many, it seems that their world has been turned upside down. Reasonable thought has given way to anger and emotional strife in our nation and we, as Christians, are forced to be involved.
We are blessed with the reality of eternal life and a home in heaven with our Saviour and God. This is where the local church comes in, to preach the truth to a lost and dying world.
We are thankful to be able to continue the process of helping new and struggling churches who are in the process of building or remodeling buildings. It is imperative that we do not fail in the continuation of the work that God has given us to do. The hurt and anger of our world must be met with the love of God and the gospel message.
April and May had two of the New Testament Church Planting families, the Crouches and the Badalians, down in southern Mississippi, helping Heritage Baptist Church with the construction of a 40 foot by 80 foot addition. When completed, this new pole-barn style addition to their existing building will contain a bedroom and living room/kitchen area for visiting missionaries. Two additional bunk room areas can sleep up to 18 additional guests. The main part of this new addition will be a training area, allowing the church to teach missionaries some basic skills such as welding, plumbing, wiring, auto maintenance, and other skills they can take to their new field of service. With 90% of the interior framing done and all the exterior work completed, the church plans to finish this construction in the winter of 2021.
Another New Testament Church planting family, the Finleys, found themselves in Landis, North Carolina helping Pastor Brad Jenkins with a much needed remodel of the church sanctuary there. This project is ongoing and will most likely be finished up over the summer months.
Drew Needham and others have been busy in Iowa and Nebraska.
Thank you for your faithful support of our work families and loan program.
In Christ, Randall Moody
