Dear Friends,

                As Cassie and I enter into this Christmas season, we do so with grateful hearts.  The Lord has been so gracious to allow us the privilege of partnering with local churches in order to reach the world with the Gospel.  We certainly have a message to share with the world, don’t we?  Jesus was born to die, so that we through Him might live.  It was for that very reason the angel told the lowly shepherds in Luke 2:11, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for allowing us to be a part of your missions family.  I am convinced that only eternity will reveal the true value of our partnership together.  Thank you for your faithfulness!

Many of you are aware of the fact that our Pastor, Dr. David McCoy, went home to be with the Lord recently.  My how it broke our hearts to learn of his passing!  We will miss him every day while looking forward to seeing him again soon.  Please continue to remember his wife, Ms. Trish, as well as the rest of his family.  Our sending church, Peoples Baptist Church of McDonough, Georgia, has called Dr. Thomas Satterfield to serve as our Pastor.  We love the Satterfield family and are so grateful God has given them liberty to accept the call.  We are trusting the Lord for great things in the days to come.

The fall has proven to be one of our busiest times of the year.  Many churches use a harvest theme and schedule their missions conference during this time.  What a blessing it has been to see churches follow the faith of their pastor and determine to invest more than ever in reaching souls that Jesus died for with the Gospel!  Our travels to “fan the flame of world evangelism” have taken us to New York, Indiana, North and South Carolina, and of course our home state of Georgia in the last two months.  We praise the Lord for every mile of safety He has so graciously provided.  Thank you for praying for our safety while on the road.

Another highlight of the quarter was our bi-annual MWBM conference hosted by the Zion Hill Baptist Church of Greenville, South Carolina, where Brother Danny Moore serves as the Pastor.  Pastor Moore and the church family did an outstanding job hosting the conference, and it proved to be a blessing to all that attended.  Cassie and I enjoyed every moment of fellowship with the thirty five missionary families that were there.  One of the greatest blessings of the conference was seeing a young lady saved! She was invited by the missionary wives to attend one of the morning services.  You never know how far an invitation to church will go.  Because someone cared enough to invite this young lady to church, she heard the Gospel and was gloriously saved.  To God be the glory!

Since our last prayer letter Cassie and I were blessed to be able to lead two people to the Lord.  While we rejoice in the opportunity to help local churches get their missionaries to the field, there is nothing like personally leading others to the Lord.  Just a few weeks ago after sharing the Gospel with a young father in Indiana, what a blessing it was to hear him call out to the Lord and ask Christ to save him.  Cassie led a young lady to the Lord after a recent service in North Carolina.  What a blessing as well as a specific answer to prayer.  It is a joy to know that God is still in the business of saving old sinners.  We like to remind ourselves often, world evangelism does not begin across the sea, it begins across the street! Remember, there is someone that only you can reach; will you?

In closing we want to thank you again for your faithful prayers and financial support.  Jesus said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”  Truly the hour is late, and the need has never been greater. Therefore with your help and by God’s grace, Cassie and I will continue by faith.

For the sake of souls,

Dr. Scott Caudill
