This past month, we were blessed to be helped by a mission team from Clayton Baptist Church in Clayton, GA. As the teams before them, these men generously gave their time to serve us as we continue the lengthy process of renovating our new building. They were also a tremendous encouragement to us during their time here! ...
It’s a joy to sit down and “count our blessings” this month - of course, the cornerstone of those blessings is our salvation in Christ Jesus, then followed by the Lord’s provision of such wonderful partners like yourselves, who make all we do here in the Mountains possible - THANK YOU!! Leslie and I hope this letter finds you well. Please never hesitate to let us know now we may be praying for you and your family - it would be an honor to come alongside of y’all in prayer!!...
What a great time we had this past month as we had our second largest outreach ministry since coming back from Covid. We were blessed to host a community Easter celebration party, including the sharing of the Gospel, food, egg hunt, prizes, etc., 90 percent of which was all outside!! We had about 300 people participate and many seeds were sown for the sake of the Kingdom!!...
One of the blessings we enjoyed this past month is pictured above. It may not seem like much, but what you're looking at is actually the first time we've had an organized music team in our church that wasn't visiting from out of town! We also have 2-3 more people lined up to add to the team in the next few weeks. Until now, it has just been our music leader playing his guitar on stage. We praise God for the way he's allowed us to build out this ministry!...
Well, Covid-19 has finally hit Bruce Outreach Center in January 2021!! It is making its rounds, but praise God, as of the writing of this letter, there have been no hospitalizations or deaths!! Also, Leslie and I are praising God that as far as we know (unless we were asymptomatic), our family has not yet been impacted by it. Please pray for us as we navigate through these choppy waters, and as always, we will be praying for you and your family and church through these challenging times!!...
It’s been a little while since we last wrote to you. Please don’t mistake our lack of correspondence (the last letter was in September) for a sense of complacency or taking our support team for granted. That is not the case at all. Things have just been crazy here, as y’all know, with this whole Covid-19 issue. Our plan is to get back to regular letters every mon...Keep Reading

This past Saturday, our church gathered at the new church building to have a prayer meeting. Although we don't yet own the building (we're hoping to close on the property in a few weeks), we wanted to make sure we are proceeding in a prayerful manner from the very beginning of this significant undertaking. In fact, we as a church have designated the entire month of Novembe...Keep Reading
You may remember that last month I shared with you the exciting news that our offer of $300K to purchase a church building had been accepted. I then requested prayer that the process of purchasing and renovating the building would go smoothly and that God would provide all that we needed both financially and with extra hands to help us. ...Keep Reading
