Director of Missions Notes

Dear Friends in Christ,

     One of my biggest dreams has come true. Cheryl and I got to go to Israel. We got to work at the Jerusalem Prayer Center and every day of our journey we prayed over the land and the people. It was a wonderful trip and God blessed by allowing us to see many of the historical sites while we were there.

     We were in Jerusalem during the time of Ramadan. Thousands of Muslims were there from around the world. Jerusalem is the religious center of the world. There you will find Jews, Muslims, and Christians that all have their religious sites inside the city gates. We prayed at the Western Wall (Better known as the Wailing Wall) along with many rabbis who are still looking for their Messiah. Just above us was the Dome of the Rock. This is a historical site for the Muslims. They believe that it is the place where the prophet Muhammad ascended into heaven.

     One of our most blessed moments was praying on the Mount of Olives. You could just feel the presence of God and at the same time feel the sadness because of all the lost people. I want to challenge you to pray like you have never prayed before for God's will to be experienced in this world today. People are lost and don't even know it. May think they have the right answer to eternity and salvation, but they are not even close. Pray for the salvation of souls.

     Vacation Bible School is one of our greatest evangelism tools we have. Use it to your advantage. Prospects come from VBS every year. Pray and follow up with visits and then pray some more.

     Brookhaven Mission had a free yard sale June 15th. There were approximately 35 people who visited finding many good items they could use. We served free hot dogs, water, and chips. God blessed us with some good opportunities of ministry and planting gospel seeds. I believe we have some adults that will be joining us on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM for prayer and devotion.

     God is so good! My prayer is that He will bless you and your family with the richness of His love. Blessings to you all!

Sincerely in Christ,
Bro. Jay Hatfield
