Dear Friends and Co Labourers,

Again, Cassie and I greet you in the wonderful name of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.  As I begin to ponder His many blessings over the course of the last two months, one of my favorite portions of Scripture comes to mind.  Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”  We are so humbled by the opportunity to serve our wonderful Lord in the capacity in which He has called us to do so.  It is only by His faithfulness we are able to continue.  We’re also thrilled to labor together with you in order to carry out God’s will to reach the world with the Gospel.  Only eternity will reveal the true worth of our efforts together.  Thank you.

These past few weeks have been very busy to say to the least.  Since our last prayer letter we have interviewed church planters headed to Honduras, the Philippines, as well as the great state of Texas.  I have had the privilege of visiting with two of our church planters in the state of Montana and to again see the need first hand for Bible believing churches in the Western USA.  In the month of June, I plan to travel to Nebraska as well as New Mexico in order to try and be a help to more of our church planters.  Would you please join me in prayer for traveling mercies?  Certainly a world at its worst, needs a church at its best!  We have also been in a different church every week since our last letter “fanning the flame of world evangelism.”  As a result of that, we have been blessed to see churches increase their faith promise missions giving as well as develop an even greater vision to reach the world with the gospel.  It is only through your faithful giving and your fervent prayers that we are able to continue.  From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

We do have a very special prayer request this quarter.  Lord willing, in July of 2018, should the Lord stay His coming, we will be making a trip to Europe with Macedonia’s European Field Director, Dr. Roger Baker.  God has put it on Dr. Baker’s heart to have a European conference in Germany in order to meet with and encourage as many of our European church planters as possible.  Currently, MWBM has 11 families serving in Europe and the Middle East.  Cassie and I would love to accompany Dr. Baker during the conference.  As you can imagine, the cost of such a trip is very expensive.  Currently we can expect to pay as much as $1500 a person just to get there.  However, we are firmly convinced if the Lord wants us there, He is able to provide to that end.  If you could help us pray that God would help us meet this need we would appreciate it very much.  We will certainly do our part knowing that God has promised to do His.  He is able!

Beyond a shadow of a doubt the highlight of our travels since our last letter came on a Wednesday night at the Eastside Baptist Church in Mebane, NC, when after I finished preaching a ten year old girl named Cayleigh knelt in the altar and asked Jesus to save her soul.  Praise the Lord! God is still in the soul saving business!  Therefore, with joy in our hearts, we continue by faith.

Serving Him with gladness,

Dear friends and co-labourers,

Cassie and I greet you again in the wonderful name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  It is always a joy to share news of fruit abounding to the account of those of you that pray and partner with us on a regular basis.  God has used each of you this quarter to supply our every need for which we are tremendously thankful.  Several churches sent special Christmas gifts in the month of December for our family.  Therefore, from the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you.  You have been so very gracious and kind.      

Over the past few weeks our office staff has been working diligently to provide our missionaries with the tax documents required by the IRS at year’s end.  As you can imagine, this is a monumental task when you consider we have over 120 families that require this service.  Since becoming the General Director of Macedonia World Baptist Missions, I have come to appreciate our home office staff more than I ever have before.  Their passion for what God has called upon each of us to do for our missionary families is contagious.  This year Macedonia celebrates 50 years of partnering with pastors, local churches and missionaries to get the Gospel around the world.  Only eternity will reveal the true worth of our efforts together. 

Many highlights come to mind as I think back over the course of the last few months. As a result of your prayers and financial support Cassie and I have traveled literally thousands of miles in order to “fan the flame of world evangelism.”  We have been blessed as well to see thousands of dollars raised through the faith promise missions giving of God’s people through their local church.  However, the greatest highlight of the quarter would have to be our trip to visit Macedonia World Baptist Missions church planters Jason and Heather Lowe serving on the island of New Providence in the West Indies.  Since 2006, they along with their children Audrey, Ian, Aiden, and Ethan have given their lives to reach the Bahamian people for Christ.  Having planted the Beacon Baptist Church there, they continue to see souls saved and lives forever changed by the power of the Gospel.  As I preached on Sunday morning to a full house, one young lady having been convicted of her need to be saved trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour.  At that very moment I was reminded yet again, the Gospel never has, nor will it ever lose it’s power!  It truly is as Paul said in Romans 1:16, “…the power of God unto salvation…”  I was also reminded that God is still calling men to plant churches and reach people for His glory.  As a result of the Lowes being obedient to our Lord’s command to take the Gospel to the West Indies, a young lady heard the truth of God’s Word and was gloriously saved!  I wonder how many more could be reached with that same Gospel if we would just get busy doing with the Gospel what Jesus commanded us to do with the Gospel.  Where there is a creature, God intends for there to be a preacher!  

In closing, Cassie and I ask that you would please continue to pray for our safety as we travel.  We have several other missions trips planned this year for which we trust the Lord to provide the funds.  Therefore, we continue by faith.

In His service,
Dr. Scott Caudill
