The month of April was a tremendous time of celebration for our association.  Here’s a summary:

  1. Over 20 of our churches and over 150 different volunteers worked together to bring focus to the cross and the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ during Easter week by walking crosses across the county.
  2. We ended our walking of crosses with a wonderful Hallelujah worship service at Runestone Park on Good Friday evening.
  3. Our combined Brotherhood meeting at Heavener First was a big success as over 100 men showed up to enjoy fried catfish, good music and great preaching!
  4. Freedom ’14 continues to drop the balance of our loan lower and lower.We are now around $336,000.00.Since March of 2012, the balance of the loan has dropped approximately $100,000.00.

God is blessing us in tremendous ways.  Now we enter the month of May with the excitement of graduations, school vacations, mission trips and of course church camps.  I hope you’re planning on taking part in something this summer to glorify your Savior.  If we all work together we can make a difference for the kingdom of God, but it takes us making a decision to step outside of our comfort zone. 

I have to tell you.  When I think of what Jesus did for me on the cross, it motivates me to want to do something to show my love for Him.  I have a hard time understanding how anyone can really come to grips with God loving us so much and yet not step out and be a part of working for Him. 

No one in our association can use the excuse that there’s nothing to do.  Besides individual church mission trips, we have associational mission trips planned this summer for India, Mexico and Colorado.   There is something for everyone.

What really is strange though is when I hear people say, “Why are you going to all of these places around the world and in other states when there is so much to do right here at home.”  I would allow that statement to have some validity if the people who are saying it were actually taking part in some sort of mission at home.

Most of the time when we hear complaints about missions it comes from people who can’t tell you of a single time in their life when they went on a mission, even in their own backyard, much less anywhere around the world.  

Just think about it.  2014 could be your year to become an Acts 1:8 Christian.  I pray you do.

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
