Our country needs the gospel! Thank you for all of your lessons, encouragement, and focus on keeping the main thing the main thing. Your brother in Christ, Billy Dickson
Josh and Amanda King are related to Jason Swindle, one of our members. He has been talking with them for a while. While their baby was sick after birth, we reached out to them. Jason recommended they watch our livestream, and they have been watching for a few months. Jason finally asked for an in-person study. They did the one-study approach Bobby Bates lesson and wanted to be baptized. We met them last Sunday at our building. Paul Swindle baptized them and they have been attending at Valdosta. I believe they will place membership here. Jason was a part of our seminar. God is so good.
This is report from Isaac Rice, an MSOP graduate.
Hayley Kuch (23-years-old) had been looking for a church for the last several years. She spent time with Mormons, Baptists, and most recently, Pentecostals. She had been attending a Pentecostal church for about a year and a half at the time of our study. Hayley and I had known each other through shared employment several years prior. She agreed to a Bible study as a way to hang out while I was visiting home. In three days, we had completed all three lessons and she insisted on being baptized immediately though it was 10:30 p.m. when the study finished, and she was baptized fifteen minutes later in a nearby creek.
Madeleine Sprik (19-years-old) came from a Baptist family. More open-minded to hearing other’s views than is typical for a Baptist in the Tennessee area, she agreed to a study. We did the first two lessons over the phone. For the third, a classmate and I met her halfway between Memphis and Nashville in a tiny town called Bucksnort, in the restaurant portion of a gas station. There she accepted the gospel, being baptized at the local congregation a few minutes down the road. A few weeks later, I asked her out. We have now been dating for about ten months. Since then I have also used BTTB to teach my mother, and she has finally accepted the truth concerning instruments in worship. This had been a fight for seven years. Thank you.
I know many of us have been overwhelmed by COVID and distracted by political elections. It can be exhausting and discouraging when our focus is on the affairs of this world. My plea and prayer is for Christians to focus on our on mission (Ephesians 3:9-10) and turn our congregations into soul-saving bodies. Evangelism works in this nation when we are willing to work it. If you want more information on how to enroll your congregation to be trained in the art of soul-winning, please contact Rob@housetohouse.com or go toevangelism.housetohouse.com.
