Missionary Meeting – Feb 2016

Recently, some of our church planters gathered at the Missions Office in Laurel. The meeting was opened with a wonderful devotional thought presented by Bro. Harold Floyd. Bro. Floyd also serves as one of the committeemen on the Missions Committee. His devotional was timely and encouraging to all. We enjoyed a wonderful time of sharing and fellowship, as well as, prayer and Bible study. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work with such a fine group of men. Here are a few of the highlights of our meeting:

Clinton
Bro. Danny Bartlett shared that they received approval from the Architectural Committee on their plans. Now they move to a hearing of the Zoning Committee and then, to a vote by the Clinton City Council. Please pray that the city will approve their plans so that we can purchase the subject property and get started building. He also shared a story of a lady he led to the Lord, recently.

Caledonia
Bro. Bob Burch shared that Caledonia has welcomed 13 additions, recently. He said that Caledonia was going to have their first Vacation Bible School this year. Mrs. Vicki Bruce will be directing it. He said they will be welcoming youth groups or churches who would like to come and participate as a mission project. This would be a wonderful opportunity for a church to invest in missions and at the same time get good training for their youth. If you are interested in helping, please contact Bro. Burch at 601-323-2795.

South Forrest
On June 9-11 South Forrest Baptist Mission will host Evangelism Explosion Training taught by Dr. Phillip Attebery, Dean of the BMA of America Theological Seminary. Missionary Sidney Farmer is coordinating this training and encourages all who might be interested, to contact him for early sign up at 601-596-1004. Bro. Farmer said that they will be offering training for young people from 4th grade and up.

Batesville
Dr. Kenneth Pollock shared about the excitement of the new mission work between Oxford and Batesville. He said that last Sunday they had an attendance of 18 which was a record for this new mission which has only been officially holding services for a few weeks.

Diamondhead
Bro. Wesley Martin shared about their recent outreach event in which they passed out Bibles to parade attenders in Diamondhead. Bro. Wesley and his wife, Holley are expecting their third child and are also making plans to sale their home and purchase in the Diamondhead community. Please keep them in your prayers.

Sumrall
Bro. Phillip Burns shared a good report of progress of discipling folks. Most of the folks being discipled are new believers. In addition to this, they continue their search for land in the Sumrall area.

Burnsville
Bro. Elliott shared how some of his folks are stepping up to the challenge of soul winning, while others are eagerly asking to be trained. They are still trying to finish some work on their parking lot.
