Encouragement to our children

Mark on November 2, 2010

In October we had the opportunity to present our ministry at Bethel Baptist Church in Savannah, OH.  We enjoyed our time there as we shared in Sunday School, taught children's church and presented our ministry.  We enjoyed meeting many wonderful people.  We had a great time with Pastor Bouquet, his wife Sherry and their children. 

The church did a wonderful thing to encourage our children.  They know children of missionaries do a lot of traveling and can be overlooked when visiting churches.  But the people of Bethel Baptist Church shared encouraging words with our children and they went the extra mile by taking up a special offering just for our kids!  We were joyfully surprised. And our kids were incredulous.  After the shock wore off they began to think about it and assumed they would receive a few dollars.  When they received their money in the evening service, they were excited to find much more than a few dollars.

Thank you, members of Bethel Baptist!  Thank you for your generosity and for taking the time to care about our children.  It is an encouragement to them and something they will remember for the rest of their lives.  Thank you!  Praise the Lord!
