As many of you know, after selling our house on the river we lived in a small one room apartment while looking for a house. The house hunt did not go well, so in July 2015 we broke ground on a new home in the Oak Creek sub-division of Seguin. In January we moved in to our beautiful new house. God has been so gracious to Reva and I throughout this transitional period of our lives. We are blessed beyond measure and give HIM all of the glory.
As we enter into a new year we reflect back with great excitement over what God has done through this ministry in 2015 and look forward with enthusiasm abouit what He will do in the days ahead. Preaching is my passion and God has really opened up the opportunities to preach all across South Texas and in churches of all size. We, as a family and a ministry, are blessed to be in a position to respond to any size church, no matter their ability to give financially to our ministry or not. Through the donations of ministry partners like you, when God calls, we go. Thank you for your prayers and financial support throughout the year.
Through our scholarship ministry we were able to assist four individuals in carrying out their Macedonia call during 2015. These individuals shared the gospel on four different continents and through their missionary efforts hundreds of people came to know Christ Jesus in a personal, life changing way. It is a blessing to be a part of their ministries.
In 2016 we look forward to being able to assist others in getting to the mission fields. We are blessed that our preaching schedule is filling up and the opportunities of service abound. We're excited about our working relationship with the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention as we ministry to churches all over South Texas. Our primary mission through the SBTC is to Encourage Pastors, Serve Churches and Assist Associations in carrying out the Acts 1:8 mandate. Recently, a something new has been added to our SBTC ministry. I'll now be an initial responder to disaster related emergencies in my geographical area of responsibility. Anytime a community wide disaster (such as tornados, flooding, hurricanes, wild fires, etc.) occurs, I will respond to perform initial evaluations and make recommendations to our Disaster Relief central command for immediate volunteer relief response. We always pray our volunteers are not needed, but every year Southern Baptist Disaster Relief teams respond to multiple calls for assistance.
Again, thank you for your continued prayers and financial support. Without you the extent of our ministry would be limited. We appreciated your ministry partnership.
