Betty and I once again wish all of you a very special Merry Christmas. I am in my brother’s house in Tennessee with David and Stephanie Young and 6 kids, my parents and two sisters are on their way over. We will be here until about 1 and then drive to Georgia to be with my mother in law and Betty’s family.
I just wanted to tell you that we love you and thank God for you.
I thank God for the chance to pastor Vision Baptist. I thank God for the opportunity to work in the Our Generation Training Center. I thank God for so many good pastor friends.
Thank you all for your notes, your kind words, your gifts from food, gift cards to money. I do not deserve the kindness shown us.
I also wanted to thank God for some very special pastor friends right now. Thank God first for Pastor Wayne Cofield of the Whitfield Baptist Church. We have been friends for many years and he has been a constant friend. We love you guys very much.
Thank God for Charles Blackstock and the Lighthouse Baptist Church. No more loyal and kind a friend any where. We wish you and yours as well as the Cofields a very Merry Christmas.
I think of Derik Lawrence and the folks from Victory Baptist Church for their friendship. I have greatly enjoyed our friendship this year.
I thank God for all of our missionary friends all over the world. I can’t name all of you but I love you and thank you for your service.
I thank God for my wonderful 4 children and their families. 21 of us in all-what a blessed family.
I thank God for the students and staff that God has given me at Vision and the Training Center.
I thank God for those who helped started the church. You have been a great blessing and I hope that you feel that your hard work has paid off at least in part.
I really want to give special recognition to our missionaries today that are serving God from our church in different parts of the world.
Mark and Amy Coffey-as you know the Coffey’s are out raising mission awareness and support for national missionaries that leave their country and travel to other countries carrying the gospel.
Chris and Andria Gardner-our missionaries in Peru, South America. They will be returning to the field on February 4th so we only have a few days left.
Travis and Teri Snode serving right now in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. He is serving in two new church plants.
Mark and Natasha Tolson now raising support as missionaries to China.
We are a blessed church and I just wanted to tell you that we love you and are praying for you.
Have a wonderful day. Merry Christmas!
