Words From Our Director
We’re starting a new month. 2021 is half over. It seems like time flies anymore. This month I had my first meeting with a representative from the International Missions Board, Dr. Jamie Work. Dr. Work came to North Carolina and in one day he met with Dr. Wilburn of the Brushy Mtn. Baptist Association, then to West Jefferson to visit Rev. David Blackburn of the Ashe County Baptist Association before meeting up with me for a dinner meeting at Mazzini’s Italian Restaurant in Elkin. I am so glad Dr. Work took time out to call on me!
I know some of you have had Bible School while some of you have not yet. I was blessed to attend one night at Fairplains Baptist during their Bible School. It was a blessing to sit under the teaching of my friend Rev. Mike Church. Mike is always a blessing!
Pastors and Deacons we are planning a meeting Thursday, July 29th at Mountain View Baptist Church at 7:00 pm. I hope you will put this on your calendar to attend. Mitch Calloway will be our guest speaker. Mitch is a long- time friend and the onsite coordinator for the Baptist on Mission project due to the earthquake damage in Sparta. Mitch has his own personal ministry, Stone Throw Christian Ministry, which he may talk about, also.
Steve and Wanda Call, Landon and Sherry Hicks and myself made a pilgrimage up to Shatley Springs this past month. We all had a GREAT morning of food and fellowship. I am so thankful to Wanda and Sherry. Like I told them, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT YOU TWO GIRLS!” I’m the face you see visiting your church and writing to you in the signal. Wanda and Sherry do so much behind the scenes working for our association that goes unnoticed. I would like to just say “Thanks” so much girls and I love you in the Lord!
Bless you all.
