17 Jul NTCP 2nd Quarter 2017
2 Corinthians 8:14 But by an equality, [that] now at this time your abundance [may be a supply] for their want, that their abundance also may be [a supply] for your want: that there may be equality:
It is truly amazing to see how God uses people to help other people. All of us know the church is made up of individuals, but what a joy when thousands of individuals join together to assist churches through New Testament Church Planting.
All of our builders have been very busy throughout the country. Major projects are in various stages of completion in Missouri, Texas, Alabama, and Pennsylvania.
Another reason for the verse I chose is to share with you what the Lord has been doing in the area of repurposed building materials. With the help of Brother Paul Pritchard, who is director of Preach Evangelistic Ministries, we have been able to secure over $100,000 worth of materials for future use in church buildings.
PEM is a ministry of Wilson Creek Baptist also and through it we have acquired two properties with much storage space. One property is a former lumber yard that we are trying to determine the best way to utilize for storage. Like most churches we have been greatly blessed by God but must wait until He gives direction and supplies all that is necessary to do His will.
The other property has one building that is 58,000 sq feet. It is located in Seymour MO, which is a 40 minute drive from our church location. The building is being converted from manufacturing to ministry. This property is primarily used for housing and training missionaries. As well as apartments, offices, and classrooms, there is also space for preparing, crating and shipping scripture and bibles to be sent to missionaries around the world.
You may think this is not what NTCP is about but seeing the potential for storage and also a place for church planters to become better equipped in the future puts it all in focus.
Please pray for all of our workers as they faithfully serve. The summer is truly the best time to build but brings the stress from the heat.
More exciting than what God has done, is looking forward to what He is going to do.
Thank you so much,
Pastor Randall Moody
