August 2015 Report
May the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well-pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever.
We want to first apologize to Faith B. C., Wauseon, Ohio for failing to thank them last month for their gracious love offering to me. We really appreciated it and we felt bad when we caught the mistake.
We were really excited when we received a check for a $100.00 from the Rollynsburg B.C., Talcott, WV. And that they are going to support the Mission for that amount each month. This is the church where the 65th Mountain State Missionary Baptist Bible Conference was held. We are most thankful to the Lord for them.
Those who receive the mission report by mail did not receive this information. I forgot to add in the report that the EDDM’s (mailings) went out on Monday July 27th. I finally was able to get ahold of someone in the Cleveland, Ohio office. They will be my contact from now on. We sent out 1,176 pieces. That takes care of the 4,400 residents in West Jefferson. Our next mailings will go out to the London, Ohio area until we cover the 9,000 residents there. Please pray for this endeavour.
Sister Maxine Green was told that she will never be able to walk again and that she will have to be in a wheel chair from here on out. We ask that you would please pray for her and Brother Marvin; they are having a time of it.
We are checking into some property that has been brought to our attention and there is one particular corner lot that would be the ideal place to put a church building on. We hope to find out something this week.
I will be preaching at our home church tomorrow for the Wednesday evening service, it will be nice to see all the folks there again.
Please pray for our people here at the Mission, getting older is troublesome for some, but the Lord is blessing!
Love in Christ Jesus,
Roger D. Reed
