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,

Dear Friends and Co Labourers,
Proverbs 27:1 says, “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”  As I prayed about the first paragraph of our next prayer letter this was the verse that kept coming to mind.  I believe if the worldwide pandemic has taught us anything, it has driven home the truth of Proverbs 27:1.  Is it not amazing how quickly things can change?  At the same time, what a joy it is to know that our wonderful Lord never changes!  Just this morning during our daily devotions here at our home office our West Indies field director, Brother David Fenley reminded us of Malachi 3:6a where the Word of God says, “For I am the LORD, I change not;…”   The world is a much different place than it was just since our last prayer letter.  Things have certainly changed.  However, our Lord remains the same.  His cause and His work continue and therefore so do we.
From the bottom of our hearts Cassie and I thank you for your friendship and your prayers as well as your faithful financial support.  Some of you have been kind enough to send extra financial support during this time for which we are so incredibly grateful.  Just like other missionaries, we have had several weeks of meetings to cancel, and God has used you to help meet our needs.  We never cease to be amazed at the goodness of God and the generosity of His people.  We are so blessed to be able to call you our friends.  Again, Cassie and I thank you.
I am pleased to report that the services our home office provides for our Macedonia missionary families have not wavered over the course of the last few weeks.  Our office staff has gone the extra mile to assure each family that our labor for them would remain unaltered during these unprecedented days.  Many of them have been quarantined with small children for weeks.  Others have had to put ministries on hold in order to comply with local officials’ stay at home orders.  The least our office staff could do for our missionary families was to assure them that we would be here to help any way we could.  We have maintained regular office hours since day one of the pandemic.  It is no small undertaking to handle the finances of every Macedonia missionary family, yet our staff has continued to do so without interruption. Beyond providing the daily services we offer our missionaries, our office staff has continued to implement a new software accounting system.  This alone has resulted in many extra hours of training, planning, and preparation.  Therefore, let me say again what I have said many times before,  I praise the Lord for those who are willing to labor behind the scenes, often overlooked or even thought of, in order for the missionary on the field to continue to focus on the work that God has called them to do.  It takes all of us in our place and doing our part for the cause of Christ to advance.  Thank you MWBM office staff!  It is an honor to labor alongside of each of you.
Throughout the course of the quarantine time I was reminded there is always something that can be done to reach others with the Gospel.  Recently Cassie has been burdened personally to reach our neighbors in our own community.  Having realized that world missions does not begin across the sea but rather across the street, she proceeded to spend a great deal of her quarantine time writing each neighbor personally.  Having acquired each of their personal mailing addresses she not only sent them her letter but also a tract which included a very clear presentation of the Gospel.  I was thrilled by her initiative, but I was also challenged by it as well.  That just goes to prove that “waiting” time never has to be “wasted” time.  Remember friend, there is someone only you can reach with the Gospel.  Will you?  If not you, who?  If not now, when?
The work goes on!  The King’s business requires haste!  Have you planned your missions Sunday or Missions Conference yet?  Chances are your church family will only be as excited as you are to reach the world with the Gospel.  Truly the hour is late, and the need is great!  Therefore, with your help and by God’s grace Cassie and I continue by faith.
