Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,

     Over the last month and to this day we have been having some exciting things going on in the Central Baptist Association. I want to thank Temple Baptist Church for hosting our Annual Spring Meeting this year. We had a wonderful meal and meeting that I think God truly blessed. We got to hear from Wayne Myers a former International Mission Board Missionary to Swaziland that spoke to us and educated us about God’s work there in Africa. Wayne also shared with our children and youth that evening bringing some of his collections from Africa for them to see and learn about. Please continue to keep the people of Swaziland in your prayers and the missionaries that are at work in Africa sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.


     Children’s Missions Day was held at Woodlawn Baptist Church March 17th with approximately twenty something children attending and about twenty adults. A fun filled time was experienced in learning some new songs, telling jokes, and preparing to go to The Village of Lebanon Nursing Home and The Springfield Nursing Home and Rehab to share with patients in song and laughter. I know the group that I went with was well received as they ministered to the patients.


     The Kentucky WMU Annual Meeting took place in Frankfort at Buck Run Baptist Church April 6th – 7th. Prayer Walking was done at the State Capital by many who attended including some from our own Central Baptist Association. Cheryl Hatfield was honored for having served the last four years as Kentucky WMU’s Development Specialist. She has now passed the torch on to Cathy Chinn from Hartford, Kentucky who serves the next four years. Jennifer Butler from Woodlawn Baptist Church was elected to serve on the Kentucky WMU Executive Board for the next four years. Bro. Terry McIlvoy pastor of Rockbridge Baptist Church was commissioned as a Mission Service Corps Missionary through his work with The Way Home.


     Reach Out Central Baptist Association was a wonderful success. On April 21st several people met at Woodlawn Baptist Church for a time of prayer and then went out into the communities to pass out information of the upcoming Block Party and Revival. About 800 homes was visited and information given about these events. There was also several times in which people were ministered to through prayer. Because of this great effort and much more advertising through Facebook, the newspapers, radio, and announcements in our churches there were between 300 and 400 people who attended the Block Party at Graham Memorial Park on April 22nd. I want to say thank you to all those who helped out during the Block Party and also in the promotion of it. A lot of Christian seeds were sown during that time.

     We still have some more events yet to take place over the next few weeks. Please be praying, promoting, and planning to attend the Association Revival at Woodlawn Baptist Church April 27th – 29th 7:00 PM each evening. Please sign up and plan to participate in the Bible Read-A-Thon in Springfield April 29th – May 3rd. You can register online at https://www.templebapt.com/. The National Day of Prayer Service will be held at the Old Courthouse Steps on May 3rd 12:00 Noon. This year’s theme is Unity. I do hope to see you there.
Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
