Dear praying friends,
Well, we are 26 days away from full-time deputation! God has been so good to us this month, it’s definitely been a busy one. Here are some of the things we are thanking Him for:
Meetings: Even though we are only part-time until September, we have been in 5 meetings since our last prayer letter! 4 meetings have been in GA, and 1 in NC. What an honor to be able to represent the need for a Gospel preaching movement in Spain.
Calendar: Thanks to God’s provision at work, I have been able to devote at least 40 hours a week to scheduling meetings for the next two years. Yesterday was pretty exciting as we hit the 50 meetings mark! Even though we are just at the beginning stage of fund-raising, it’s been amazing to see how God has a plan for us every step of the way, as He opens doors.
Support Level: We had two churches take us on for support this month! That brings us up to around 7% of our needed monthly support to live and minister in Spain. 7% May not seem like a huge number, but considering we are not even officially on deputation for a few weeks, we praise God for a great head start.
Hudson Taylor once said “God’s work done in God’s way will never lack for God’s supply”, and we have seen that true in our own lives, and look forward to seeing Him provide! We don’t consider ourselves to be anything special, or even that we always do everything exactly right, but we know that God wants the people of the world to know His glory, and this is His plan for our lives, not our own.
Prayer Requests: Please continue to pray that God will open the right doors for us, that we will be a blessing to the churches we are in to encourage them to stay excited about what God is doing in world missions. Please be in prayer for the works in Spain, that God will grow them for His honor and glory. And finally, please continue to ask God to send forth laborers into His harvest, in Spain and the rest of the world.
Yours for His Harvest,
Scott and Melissa Newton, Vision Baptist Missions
