Dear Co-Labourers and Friends,
Cassie and I greet you in the name of the Lord Jesus!   We also praise His good name for the privilege of serving Him alongside of our co-labourers.  Thank you for your prayers.  Thank you for your faithful support.  Thank you for being our friends.  We count each of you as precious gifts from God. 
The Bible says in Michah 5:2, “But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little amoung the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.“  We often talk of the second coming of the Lord, and we certainly should.  However, I think we ought to remind ourselves, especially this time of year that the greater majority of the world has not heard of His first coming.  I trust throughout this Christmas season each of us will remember the actual “reason for the season.”  God’s Word teaches us that Jesus was born to die, so the world through Him might live.  It is that Gospel message as well as the command by our Saviour to take it to a lost and dying world that compels us forward and causes us to press on.  Thank you again for being a part of this great missions endeavor. 
I often say now that our Lord’s great commission has not been canceled!  Cassie and I have been as busy this fall as we have ever been.  We have had missions conferences as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida.  God has been so good to not only grant us open doors and traveling mercy but also to allow us the privilege of seeing churches determine to do more for missions in spite of being in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.  It has been absolutely thrilling for us to see pastors and church families determine to “keep the main thing the main thing”.  Our office staff has certainly been busy as well. 
Recently, we have just finished orientation with three new MWBM missionary families that are headed to South Africa, Guatemala, and the great state of Idaho.  What a thrill to have a part in helping their local churches and pastors get them to their prospective fields and then sustain them while they are there!  Would you like to be an extra special blessing to some family just getting started on deputation?  If so please let me know, and I will be more than glad to put you in touch with them.  Also, our office continues the work on the software transition that I have been asking you to pray about as well.  The hours of training have been long, and at times the task has seemed overwhelming.  However, I have never been more pleased with how the staff has worked together to make this needed change.  I give the Lord glory and ask that you might continue to help us pray for this great need.  Our MWBM families are depending on us. Recently, while soul winning with the Calvary Baptist Church of Waterloo, Iowa, during their missions conference, a couple from the church knocked on the door of an elderly man who proclaimed to be an atheist.  He wanted nothing to do with the couple, or the Gospel they had come to share.  Oh how my heart broke!  I was reminded that day that there are no atheists in hell. He may choose not to believe here, but he will believe there.   We must continue to try and reach them with the Gospel now!  The Gospel always has been and will continue to be the power of God unto salvation.  Therefore, for God’s glory and by His grace, Cassie and I will continue by faith.  
For the sake of souls,

Dr Scott Caudill
