Have you ever wondered what God was up to behind the scenes? We have! And we have some exciting news to share with you regarding our future!
Most of you probably know by now that our family has moved to Brewton, Alabama. We’ve traded life in the inner city for life on a dirt road in the country. Through this transition we often asked God, “What are you doing?” The door closing for our ministry in Atlanta was undeniable and the door opening in south Alabama was undeniable as well. “Why Lord would you take a family with a passion for the inner-city poor and lead Bobby to become an associate pastor and Tamitha to be the children’s pastor of the Pineview Church?”
As He always does, God has been faithful to show us His grand plan that we could never have envisioned on our own.
During the past few months doors have been flying open for us to nurture our growing call toward world missions. The amount of invitations to lead crusades, seminars and teach the local ministers in various developing countries has been overwhelming. We have prayerfully considered all these opportunities and have decided to take the leap of faith and commit to three of these opportunities and trust that God will provide financing for three mission trips this fall to Ecuador, Jamaica and Kenya.
Ecuador – August, 2007
We have been invited to visit the Church of God Seminary in South America and participate in urban mission training program. Training and working with local urban leaders will also be a focus. During this visit we will be teaching seminary level Urban Missions sessions, visiting with various church leaders and discussing current urban strategies, and training future missionaries in their preparation to go to the unreached people groups around the world. We are very excited to share what we’ve learned in ministry with these individuals who have burdens to return home and reach the lost of their cities across the world.
Jamaica – October 9 – 15, 2007
This is our 3rd annual trip to the mountain village of Claremont to work with a local church’s outreach ministry. (see our report from last year on the back) This year, we will again lead a massive outreach to the children of the area. Our theme this year utilizes sports – specifically soccer. In addition to the Kid’s Krusade services, we are arranging a sports fun day where we bring in professional players to teach the children soccer skills. If you can donate any soccer equipment or other items that would be a blessing to these children, please let us know. We also need donations of school supplies for this trip.
We would love for you to join us on this trip! If you are interested in joining us on this trip to Jamaica, please contact us immediately for more information. The deadline for signing up is July 15. The cost is approximately $900 per person which covers all expenses.
Kenya – November, 2007
As only God can do, He orchestrated our meeting a lovely missionary couple who has served in Kenya for decades. They have invited our family to come and lead classes at their Bible school which trains local Christians who have a desire to start a new church. I am sure you are well aware of the many trials that Africans face due to the overwhelming poverty and disease. These men and women are offering the hope of Christ to the people of Kenya and we are honored to be invited to share our passion with these individuals.
During this trip, Bobby will teach seminary level Bible courses. Tamitha will lead various children’s outreach programs to both evangelize the nearby children as well as train the students of the Bible school. Jonathan & Jordan will use their clown ministry to share the gospel in a beautiful and unique way that transcends all cultural barriers.
How you can help
Mission work is a partnership. We are able to go and do the work of the Father only with the financial and prayer support of you all.
In order to travel to all three locations and ship ahead the supplies needed for the various outreach projects, we need to raise $12,000. That seems overwhelming to us, but we know that God is able to provide for His work to be accomplished.
- We ask that you prayerfully consider sending your financial contribution to our mission fund.
- Please consider joining us for the trip to Jamaica. It is an amazing opportunity that will change your life.
- Contact us if you are able to donate any soccer equipment or school supplies that can be shipped to Jamaica.
- Most importantly, please remember us in your prayers that God will continue to guide and protect us in our endeavors for Him.
Bobby, Tamitha, Jonathan & Jordan
