Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,
     If you did not get to attend our Fall Annual Meeting you missed out on a blessing. We were hosted by Lebanon Baptist Church and Dr. David Whitlock. The ladies put on a wonderful meal for us that day. I would like to say, “Thank you ladies of Lebanon Baptist for your generous hospitality”. Everything was very nice and we appreciated your service to us. Blessings to all!


      We heard several good reports from our meeting. It is always good to hear from Sunrise Children’s Services and the Kentucky Baptist Convention, but we also got to hear from some of our own churches and the ministries that are taking place around the world. Yes, you heard correctly ministries that are taking place around the world through our local churches. Preston and Kim Price continue to do work along with some of the members of Stewart’s Creek Baptist Church in Malawi, Africa. Preston and Kim both have put forth a lot of time, prayers, and their own monies to keep this work going. Preston has purchased a lot of equipment trying to help these people start up businesses that will produce an income for them and give them a little more stable life. Now that they have the equipment the problem is they have no monies for the materials needed to build the projects to sell. Preston appealed to us as individuals and as churches to partner with them for one year. Is it possible that you could donate financially to help out this ministry for one year? Whatever you can give would be helpful. I always tell my congregation that God can always use your quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies. Save your spare change and donate it to this cause for one year. God will bless you and them for it.


      Cheryl and I along with our team from Kentucky WMU have just returned from Swaziland, Africa. This was an eleven day trip. Four days we spent much of it traveling. Seven days we spent from sun up to midnight working. God used us to minister by taking Baptist Global Relief Buckets to those in need. This time we only had four buckets to deliver. We did have two professions of faith that came out of those four deliveries. To God we give praise! Most of our trip involved Discipleship Training. The ladies of our team led women’s conferences teaching about Women on Mission and how to develop their work in Swaziland. My partner George Chinn had emergency surgery before we left so he was not able to be with me. I taught church leaders conferences helping them to learn more effective ways for evangelism and church growth. God blessed me to preach at two churches during this week and also at a Christian High School of 469 students. We passed out homemade jump ropes, bubbles, pillow case dresses, shoes, ties, and wooden crosses. There is still much work to be done there. At Velebantfu Baptist Church where I preached on Sunday – Tuesday of our week is a congregation that is excited and ready to get there church building finished. They have their concrete block walls of the building up and hopefully in January 2019 they will have the roof put on it. We took enough money on this trip that they are getting the windows made. Still more money is needed to finish this work. It is estimated that another $12,000.00 is needed to finish the church building. Pastor Lizwe Siabndze and his congregation our truly hard workers for Jesus Christ. Keep them in prayer and if you feel led then help support the building of this church.


      Lastly, it is with sadness that I share with you the passing of Dr. David and Lori Whitlock’s son Harrison. Please remember this family in your prayers especially as we enter into the holidays. Blessing to all!


Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
