Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
We are excited to announce that we have recently purchased tickets to China for the Goforth China Tour! The Goforth China Tour is a survey/vision trip of China lead by my wife and I and will serve both as our own survey trip and a survey trip for a handful of students who are considering missions in China. The dates for the trip are locked in for Saturday, June 29, through Wednesday, July 10, of this year. While my wife and I are no strangers to South China, we plan to spend at least the first two years on the field in North China. This trip will allow us and a group of students to survey this part of the country and see how others on our Vision For China team are doing there. We are excited for this opportunity to briefly return to China and see the great need in the northern part of the country. Please pray for this trip! Pray that the Lord would use it in our lives to help us prepare to return to the field and pray that the Lord would also use it to raise up more laborers to GO!
We praise the Lord for a great month of deputation in April with eleven meetings, and we are excited about the eleven churches we are scheduled to be with in May. Lord willing, we will be able to present China in churches in MS, FL, GA, AL, TN, MD, PA, KY, and NC. Additionally, we will spend a five days in the middle of the month in NC for Vision Baptist Missions’ yearly orientation. This will be our third year to attend and we are looking forward to this time of encouragement, preaching, and training. Please continue to pray for us as we travel and present China. Pray that the Lord would use us to be a blessing to the churches we present in and that He would bless us with partners in the mission.
