Dear Friends and Co-Labourers,
 
Cassie and I greet you in the name of our wonderful Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are so very grateful for your faithful prayers, your financial support, and your friendship. We could not do what God has called us to do without you.  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.  
 
Most churches have begun to at least try to resume somewhat of a normal schedule of services since the start of the worldwide pandemic.  Therefore, Cassie and I have been very busy with missions conferences and special missions Sundays.  It has been such a blessing to see pastors realize the need to keep world evangelism in front of God’s people even during these unprecedented days.  The work of God must go on!  There is no time to waste!  Truly the hour is late, and the need to reach the world with the Gospel has never been greater!   Our hearts have been blessed to hear of many churches doing even more for missions recently than they have ever done before.  To God be the glory!  Thank you, Pastor, for your burden and vision as well as your determination to “keep the main thing the main thing.”  Only eternity will reveal the extent of your efforts as you lead God’s people to do more for missions. 
 
Recently, I had the joy of preaching a missions conference at the Sumter Baptist Temple of Sumter, South Carolina, where Brother Mike Westmoreland serves as the Pastor.  What a great few days!  The first night of the meeting while preaching out of John chapter six,  I reminded the SBT family of the little lad that gave his little lunch to the Lord.  I also reminded them that just as God used that little lad’s lunch in a mighty way to feed the multitude, God can and will use our “little lunch” as well.  The very next night of the meeting a young lady by the name of Valerie, with her dad standing by her side, gladly told me that she had made the decision to give her “little lunch” to the Lord.  Hallelujah!  After the service that night, several other teens lined up to tell me the same thing.  Another told me she felt that God had specifically called her to serve Him in missions!  What a blessing to actually see real missions revival in the hearts of God’s people.   Thank you, Pastor Westmoreland and SBT family, for your passion for world evangelism.  My heart was both encouraged and challenged as a result of our few days together. 
 
I also want to thank you again for praying for the software transition for our home office that I mentioned in my last prayer letter.  Please continue to pray for this need.  Our MWBM missionaries are much too busy with their own ministries for them to have to even remotely be concerned with getting their monthly suppprt in a timely manner.  If all goes as planned, this new software will enable us to serve our missionary families even more effectively in the days to come.  Our office staff has worked tirelessly on the behalf of each MWBM family and have determined to continue to do so.  I never cease to be amazed at their level of commitment to what our home office must do on a daily basis in order for each missionary family to remain busy on their prospective field.  I am challenged daily by their faithfulness.  Thank you dear friends!  You are doing a wonderful work for the Lord! 
 
In closing, Cassie and I would ask that you join us in prayer for safety as we travel. We have missions conferences planned as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida within the next quarter.  Most importantly, we desire and seek God’s touch to be used in a mighty way to “fan the flame of world evangelism” in the hearts of God’s people.  With your help and by God’s grace, we therefore continue by faith.   
 
For the sake of souls,
Dr Scott Caudill

Dear Friends and Co-Laborers,

As always, Cassie and I greet you in the name that is above every other name, the Lord Jesus Christ.  As we correspond this quarter, it is with a deep sense of gratitude and praise for literally thousands of miles of safe travel and many opportunities to share the Gospel while on our way.  It has been our joy to represent you and your church family while traveling abroad and at home for the cause of Christ.

The highlight of the quarter was the blessing of being part of our Macedonia European Church Planter’s Conference in Rothenburg, Germany.  Within just twelve days, Cassie and I traveled through seven countries, stayed in two missionary’s homes, and spent three days with our European missionary families during the conference. 

Upon arriving in England, it was our joy to spend a few days with Brother Jonathan and his wife, Mrs. Natalie VandenHurk.   They are being used of the Lord in a mighty way at the Calvary Baptist Church in Peterborough, England.  I was amazed to see God bless their services during the Lord’s Day when we were with them.  I preached Sunday morning, Cassie taught the children’s Sunday school during the afternoon, and we were thrilled to hear Bro. VandenHurk preach the Sunday evening service.  What a day we had!  We left greatly encouraged after having spent time with this great couple and their church family.  

From England, it was on to Germany where we met with nine MWBM missionary families serving in Europe for the Church Planter’s Conference.  Dr. Roger Baker, MWBM’s European/Middle East Field Director, did a wonderful job planning and preparing for the conference.  I know each family was blessed and encouraged as we all spent time together around the things of the Lord.  I truly believe each family left challenged to stay the course for the cause of Christ. Cassie and I both taught classes during the conference and greatly enjoyed spending time with the missionaries.  We were encouraged as we visited with them and got a better understanding of their burden, their passion, their struggles, and accomplishments.   The Lord is using this group of people to spread the gospel to Europe, but more laborers are needed!  Would you consider joining them as they seek souls for Christ?

After the conference, we joined Bro. Jeremiah and Mrs. Lindsay Cooley along with their daughter Ruth, at their home in southern Germany.  On Sunday, we traveled with them into Liechtenstein where they hold services each week.  This is a closed country, but the Cooleys are spreading the gospel there.  It was our joy to meet a young man Bro. Cooley led to Christ just recently.    I am convinced God is going to use the Cooleys in a great way in Liechtenstein.

If not for your faithful prayers and support, we could not have made this remarkable trip.  Our hearts are burdened more than ever for the great need for Christ to be preached around the world.   We send to you sincere thanks for your generosity and sacrifice in getting us to Europe. 

The need is great, but the laborers are few.   Let us each one heed Christ’s plea to pray the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth laborers.  Also, consider visiting the mission field yourself to be an encouragement to your missionaries.  If you were on a foreign field, what a tremendous blessing it would be to you to receive a visit from someone who cared for you and sought to spur you on in the work of the Lord.  At Macedonia, we would love to help you get to the field in any capacity you feel led to go. 

Please join us in prayer for Dylan, a young man I had the privilege of witnessing to recently while we were on the road.  Everyone everywhere needs the gospel!  It is our great joy and honor to be your ambassadors for Christ!

Since returning from Europe we have resumed a busy schedule here in our home office and on the road.  Truly the hour is late, and the need is great!  Therefore, with the help of the Lord as well as our co Labourers we continue by faith. 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott and Cassie Caudill

Dear Co Labourers,

Cassie and I greet you as always in the name which is above every name, the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is only through Him that we have the hope of eternal life.  It is only through your faithful prayers and financial support that we can serve Him to the greatest extent.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.  We count it an honor to labor alongside of you for the cause of a world that stands in need of the Saviour.

First of all we want to thank every church, as well as every individual that helped us financially with the cost of our trip to Europe for our Macedonia World Baptist Missions European church planters conference coming up in the month of July in Rothenburg, Germany.  We are so glad to be able to report to you that between what Cassie and I have saved and what our supporting churches and individuals have given, every need has been supplied!  To God be the glory!  We also plan to attend church services with MWBM missionaries Jonathan and Natalie VandenHurk (England) as well as Jeremiah and Lindsey Cooley and family (Liechtenstein) while in Europe.  Needless to say we will be traveling many thousands of miles within the almost two weeks we will be out of the United States and therefore would certainly appreciate your prayers for safety.  I am convinced that only eternity will reveal the fruit of our efforts together as we make this trip.  Thank you for allowing us to represent you and your church family while in Europe and abroad.  Rest assured that is a task that we do not take lightly.

Since our last prayer letter, Cassie and I have “fanned the flame of world evangelism” in New York, Maryland, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, as well as our home state of Georgia.  Week after week, while traveling literally thousands of miles we count it all joy with your help to do what God has called upon us to do.  We have also been very busy here in our home office preparing for orientation and training June 18 through 21.  Lord willing, we will have the largest number of missionary families this year that we have had in several years.  Our executive board has also been busy.  Recently, they have approved two new missionary families to Argentina, one family to Peru, and another family to be a part of our USA church rescue ministry as well.  Every time God raises up another family I am reminded that He is still in the business of calling and separating His people for the work of world evangelism.  My prayer is that He would raise up even more as we approach His soon return.  We are not only praying to that end here at Macedonia, we are laboring to that end as well.  Let me encourage you to take out a map and take a good long look.  There are needs everywhere!  People need the Gospel!  Will you go?  Just remember MWBM can help your local church get you there.

Out of all the wonderful things I have spoken of in this quarter’s letter, I believe the best would be to mention the two precious souls that we have seen saved in meetings as we have traveled.  After all, that is really what the ministry is all about: souls!  Souls that Jesus died for!  Souls that He longs to use each of us to reach with His glorious Gospel.  Because of that, and for His glory, we continue by faith.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Caudill

Dear Co-Laborers,

We greet you in the wonderful name of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Cassie and I trust this letter finds each of you well and busy in the service of our wonderful Lord.
 

The past few months have been very busy, but also full of the manifold blessings of God. Recently, at our annual Macedonia Conference hosted by Dr. Chris Haizlip and the Calvary Baptist Church of Statesville, NC, we were blessed to see two people trust Christ as their Saviour. As a result of that, we were reminded yet again of the world’s greatest need, which is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please join us in praying that God would raise up laborers for His harvest. Truly the night is coming when no man can work. We have recently had two different interviews at our home office of potential MWBM missionaries and are excited about those that God will call in the future to take the Gospel to the world. Yes, we rejoice in those that have been saved, but at the same time, our hearts are broken for those who have yet to hear the Gospel. Therefore, we continue to go, to pray, to give so that other souls might be reached for Christ before it is eternally too late.

We also praise the Lord for traveling mercies. Cassie and I have “fanned the flame of world evangelism” recently in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Illinois, and of course, our home state of Georgia. There is no way that we could continue to do that without your faithful prayers and support. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

We also wanted to praise the Lord for answered prayer! I was blessed to have some much needed     surgery in November. I’m doing much better now and am on the road to a full recovery. Also, after over a year on the market, our house in Covington has finally sold. We look forward to moving closer to our home office so that my work there can be more efficient in the days to come. Will you help us pray that the Lord would lead us to the very place that He would have us to live? Thank you so much for joining us in prayer.

Finally, we are currently at about 75% of our needed support. We look forward to the day when we are fully supported so we can do more effectively what God has called us to do. In the meantime, we thank you again for your prayers and financial partnership. Truly, we thank God for you and for your fellowship as we continue to labor together to reach the world with the glorious Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Sincerely for souls,

Dr. and Mrs. Scott Caudill

February 2015

Dear Friends and Fellow Laborers in the Gospel,

I hope this latest update finds each of you well and joyous in the service of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Cassie and I thank the Lord not only for the privilege of serving Him, but for the opportunity to partner with each of you in this great endeavor of reaching the world with the glorious Gospel of Christ by planting Independent Baptist Churches through local churches just like yours.

The last few months have certainly been busy to say the least. Upon writing this letter I thought that I would look back in my date book to the very first Sunday of May 2014 that Cassie and I began full time deputation. From that Sunday to the last day of December of 2014, I have preached 122 times in 67 different churches. Through it all, the thousands of miles, the many different churches and faces, the Lord has been so good to supply our every need. We are currently around 45 to 50% of our needed monthly support for which we are tremendously grateful. We are hoping to raise the additional 50% by the end of the year so that we will be able to spend more time at the home office. Whereas I realize that fanning the flame of world evangelism in churches across America will always be a part of the job that I love, I also have a personal goal of physically being on the mission field at least once a quarter to help and encourage our MWBM missionaries around the world. In order for that to become a reality I must first raise the needed monthly funds to do so. Therefore the additional support is our greatest need at the current moment. Will you please make that a matter of prayer?

Another great need we face is to raise awareness for monthly support for our home office at Macedonia. If MWBM is not a part of your monthly missions budget let me encourage you to log on to www.mwbm.org and watch the eight-minute video explaining the tremendous need. If you or your church could partner with us as we serve our church planters around the world I’m sure that much fruit would abound to your account. We look forward to laboring with you in the days to come for the cause of Christ.

Cassie and I are excited to be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on February 24. We give the Lord glory for the past 25 years together, and we trust Him to use us in an even greater capacity in the days to come.   Until He comes it is our desire to be busy in His service for His glory.

We were reminded what serving the Lord is all about a few weeks ago at a meeting in Salisbury, NC. when a   12-year-old girl by the name of Tahlia trusted Christ as her Saviour. It never gets old friend. The Gospel still works! Jesus still saves! God is still good! Therefore, we will continue to do what He has called us to do with your help. Thank you so very much for your continued prayers and financial support. Rest assured the Lord is working through you to make a difference in this world for the cause of our wonderful Lord. Keep up the good work for God! Cassie and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely,
Dr. Scott Caudill

November 2014

Dear Friends and Co – Laborers,

Greetings to each of you in the lovely name of our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. Cassie and I hope that this letter finds each of you well, and busy in the service of our wonderful Lord.   First of all let me begin by saying, “Thank You” for your investment in our ministry. So many of you have given both prayerfully and financially and it has enabled us to continue to do what the Lord has called upon us to do. We can’t even begin to tell you what your faithful support has meant to us.

We’ve just finished up sixteen straight weeks on the deputation trail participating in missions revivals, special “Missions” Sundays and presenting the work of Macedonia World Baptist Missions. We’ve traveled as far west as Vancouver British Columbia, as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida. I’m happy to be able to report that fruit abounds to your account as a result of it as well. Just a few weeks ago while preaching on the thought, “One Sinner” out of Luke chapter fifteen a fourteen year old young man named Aaron walked the aisle, knelt in the altar and was gloriously saved by the good grace of God. Praise the Lord! There is more fruit abounding to your account as well. Within the last few weeks we’ve approved three new missionary families that will eventually be planting churches in Nicaragua, Haiti, and Europe. I certainly praise the Lord for answered prayer and would encourage you to continue to pray that God would send forth laborers into His harvest. Truly the hour is late, and the need to reach the world has never been greater.

When you pray, please remember to pray for our safety as we travel, an increase in our monthly support as we continue on deputation, as well as the touch of God on our lives. More these days than ever before we realize that without Him, we are absolutely nothing. There is also a tremendous need for an increase in the monthly support of our home office here at MWBM. Please make these things a matter of prayer. For more information about the great need of MWBM log on to mwbm.org and read the “Do You Know How Much We Need You” page.

Again, we can’t thank you enough for your faithful support. I trust that each of you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas season. I look forward to meeting each of you personally soon. Until then, God bless.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. and Mrs. Scott Caudill
