Right now, Wade and I are building our marriage foundation and enjoying each other as we do. We are praying and waiting for God to lead us to where He wants us to go and work with His people. Wade and I both know that we needed this time of building, waiting and praying before we get into the mission field.
This is my time of rest, refreshing, and adjusting to the new life that I have with Wade. I have many things to adjust to and I know that it will take some time. I am taking my time as I go through adjustment and enjoying it in the process. Wade is very supportive and understanding about it and I thank God for him on that.
As we are building our marriage, praying and waiting, we are helping in the church here in WV. We were asked to be in-charge of the Missions in our church (Boothsville Methodist Church). The Pastor (Michael Richards) asked us to be on the Missions Board, and we agreed while we are here in the US.
Being in-charge of the Missions, we started to invite everyone that is involved in any form of outreach to join us in the missions department. We then started a prayer group that will be praying for the Pastor and the ministries of the church, especially God’s leading.
We also starting a discipleship group for those that are willing and wanted to do any outreach ministry. The plan is to have a local missions conference this year, and to have a national missions conference next year. These program is help people focus and makes them aware of going or doing missions locally or internationally. Basically to mobilized them to get involved in outreach and missions work.
A couple of the outreaches that the church is been doing for years is the Potato/Banana drop and feeding lunch to the college students at Fairmont University, in which the church is working together with the Wesleyan Foundation Center. There’s much potential in these ministries and we are thinking of ways on how to use these outreaches effectively to share Christ truth and love.
Please pray with us as we work alongside with the Pastor here, and mobilize the people to get involve in missions. Pastor Mike’s heart and vision is about mission and we pray that we can be of help to him at this time as we wait on God.
