Dear Prayer Partner and/or Supporter:
|All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: –2 Timothy 3:16
Nancy and I are doing well and enjoying each other more every day. We are rather excited and filled with anticipation on how our heavenly Father is going to lead in this seeming final chapter here on planet Earth. We cling to Proverbs 3:5-6, our two verses we have attempted to live by through our married life. We have seen our Father’s leading and intervention along the journey and are always excited that our Father is in control. We are not retiring from IGM but redirecting our ministry as IGM Missionaries, helping in the transition, in promotion, and working with those unable to come to the USA.
I traveled with our new Director of IGM, Lex Reed, to the islands of St. Vincent and Grenada. Our objectives were to meet the pastors and direction has been established. Like any country, there are struggles and challenges that need to be addressed to enable the spread of the Gospel. We were able to meet Pastor Garnet Samuels and learn about his new ministry. We also visited Pastor Sampson George and his son who are pastoring a church. They are adding on to the church building a needed addition. After our visit to St. Vincent, Lex Reed and I were off to Grenada. Pastor Anderson Gibson met us at the airport along with his wife and 3-year-old son, “AJ”. We had a lot of discussion concerning his plans and goals for those who attend the First Baptist Church. They are seeking to purchase additional land and need our prayers. Presently, Pastor Gibson is the only pastor with IGM in Grenada. Also, we were able to meet the two widows, Beulah Roberts and Evelyn Williams. Both ladies were doing well! Then we met with one of our former IGM pastors to see his church building that was being built when the Psinases were working with the Grenada pastors. Dr. Reed and I were able to see some of the history of the two islands. These trips provide information and knowledge to provide accountability to those who support IGM church planters. We were very excited over the three IGM pastors that we visited. Now Dr. Reed will have a greater grasp of these three ministries.
During our trip to St. Vincent and Grenada, we came face to face with several children with the most inquisitive minds taking in their surroundings. They were riveted in on their surroundings and increasing their knowledge. It came across my mind that we never stop learning and growing in knowledge of our Lord Jesus.
Please keep praying for us as we keep moving forward for our Lord. The month of November is full of meetings. Our first meeting is at the Bald Eagle Baptist Church, Port Matilda, PA for their 187th anniversary. Then we continue our travels to see IGM missionaries and family. We will be traveling close to 3,000 miles. Thank you for supporting and/or praying for us.
