Village Missions Gut Check

This gut check also causes me to examine whether I am fully convinced that God has more for Village Missions to do. The next years will be difficult years for us. As director, will I have the “courage, character, or determination” to do what needs to be done? It will be a “gut check” for all who say they believe in keeping country churches alive, requiring much more “courage, character, and determination” than in years past. It will require people to pray earnestly and give sacrificially.

God has been blessing here in some very special ways. A young couple asked me to marry them. In our first session together I shared the gospel with them, and they both trusted in Christ as their Savior & Lord. One Sunday in June, we had a church picnic and baptism. Fifty people attended and […]
