July 2021

 

Dear Friends and Fellow Disciples,
It seems that life is getting back to a sense of freedom of movement and life without a mask! YEAH!  We are free to move about the commonwealth and most other states without restriction. I know I am excited to re-engage in missions and outreach as well as just being able to visit people and see guests at church.
In June, Cindy and I were able to attend the Annual Meeting in Nashville, TN along with 15,000+ other church leaders and members. It was great to travel and see people worshiping the Lord and hearing from great preachers. And our summer is just beginning. As I shared with you in a recent message, Cindy and I are combining our vacations with some kingdom mission work.

After the service on July 11th we are leaving for Forest City, NC to work with our friends David and Susan Johnson. They met in the Air Force, from which David retired around 2014. I was honored to give the benediction at his retirement ceremony. In asking me to participate he stated, “I am asking you to pray so that you can pray the gospel to some of the leadership in my command!” And that is exactly what I did! They have started F.A.I.T.H.Way Ministries. This dynamic couple was able to purchase a farm in Forest City with a few buildings. They hope to renovate the farmhouse for a missionary furlough house, they are building housing for five to ten children as a foster home or group home, and they are renovating a barn into a discipleship and retreat center. We are going to be there three days, to be available to help them however they can best use our skills. I am so excited to see these dear friends and to assist them in their vision to build the Kingdom of God in the hearts and minds of men and women and boys and girls through providing a safe and loving environment to know and grow in Jesus!  You can find out more about F.A.I.T.H.Way Ministries at their website, faithwayministries.org.

In August Cindy and I will be celebrating two significant anniversaries on the same day. August 9th will be the 35th anniversary of our wedding as well as the 20th anniversary of our being in full-time ministry. As we look back on the years of joy and struggle, victories and defeats, challenges and blessings, there is nothing we would rather do than give God the glory by being on the mission field for that date. God has blessed us with a wonderful opportunity with Teams 4 Medical Missions (T4MM), John and Linda Heater.  We will join them in Jamaica, August 6th thru the 16th for outreach, back-yard-Bible club, sports ministry, a disciple-making seminar, ministry networking, and on August 15th, I will be preaching at a local church in Jamaica. One of the desired outcomes of this trip is to see the ministry setting where T4MM regularly operates, as an information gathering experience for Restoration Church. I hope that we can assemble a complete team from our  membership to participate on one of their regularly scheduled mission trips in 2022. You can find out more about T4MM at their website, www.t4mm.org.

We are seeking to raise financial support for the trip in August. Our total expenses for flights, in-country travel, meals and lodging will be approximately $3,500. If you feel lead, and would like to join us on this mission through financial support, you can make a tax deductible gift to Restoration Church with the designation, “Adult Missions – Aug 2021”. We will be giving updates through our church Facebook page throughout the summer.
Please pray for us as we prepare and participate on these Kingdom ventures this summer. We are excited to be able to travel and invest our time to the glory of our God and King proclaiming the good news of salvation, power to resurrect lives, and the gift of His Holy Spirit to those who believe in the name of Jesus!
In the bond of Peace,
Pastor Mike
