Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
Thank you so much for all of your prayers over the past few months. The Lord has been so faithful to me (II Tim. 2:13). Here are a few of the blessings:
The greatest blessing I received was getting engaged to Teri Smith on January 17, 2022 (Prov. 18:22). Our wedding is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2002, in Stone Mountain, Georgia. You are all invited to attend the wedding and a special reception at the Carrollton Baptist Temple on Saturday, July 27, 2002, at 3 p.m. Teri is excited about going to Ireland, and I hope you all can meet her soon.
Financially, the Lord has provided for my school bill, deputation expenses, and other needs. He prompted a fellow missionary to give me a very nice laptop and printer for deputation. He provided a car so I could get a good-paying, flexible job. The Lord has also provided free accommodations for me and Teri to stay on our honeymoon. God is so good!
The Lord has also blessed me as I have begun the process of calling pastors. We have been able to schedule several meetings and are trusting God to give us more.
I have also been privileged to preach and teach the Word of God many times this semester at college. Several young people have made professions of faith. Please pray especially for a young man named Shane Grimes.
I am reminded many times that this work is a spiritual work (Eph. 6:12). It cannot be done in the flesh. Please continue to pray for me and Teri as we begin the work that God has called us to do.
Yours for souls in Ireland,
