Dear friends and co-labourers,

I Corinthians 15:58 says, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”  What a joy to know that our labour for the Lord and His great cause is not in vain.  I am convinced that only eternity will reveal the true worth of our work together to reach the world with the Gospel.  From the bottom of our hearts Cassie and I thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support.

Whereas the month of December slows down quite a bit for us at least as far as traveling is concerned, this January and February have been some of our busiest months to date.  I have found that many churches who have a desire and drive to reach the world with the Gospel utilize the first two months of the new year to emphasize missions in their church.  Therefore the Lord has filled our calendar with mission’s Sundays and mission’s conferences as well.  Week after week, mile after mile, praying, preaching, and preparing to assist the next pastor and church family focus on world evangelism is what God has put in our hearts to do.  It has been absolutely thrilling to see the Lord move upon the hearts of His people not only concerning giving but also going themselves as well.  In fact, I have been amazed at the number of interviews we have had with new missionary candidates just since our last prayer letter.  We have met with missionary families that God has called to take the Gospel to Ecuador, South Africa, California, and Northwestern USA, as well as an international ministry reaching mariners based out of Norfolk, Virginia.  It has been such a thrill to meet these precious families who have willingly laid their lives down in service for our wonderful Lord.  I look forward in the days to come to working with their sending churches and pastors in order to help them do what God has put in their heart to do.  We also make it a matter of prayer weekly here at our office that God would raise up more labourers for His work.   Truly the harvest is great, but the labourers are few.  Who will go that the world might know the Saviour?

Our staff has certainly been busy here at our home office as well.  Of course every new year our office works diligently to prepare the necessary tax forms for every MWBM family.  This alone constitutes hours and hours of labor for our office staff.  I am careful to mention that, because quite honestly it is a part of missions that very few people ever think about.  However, it is a job that must be done in order for the missionaries to focus on their work.  Therefore, I want to thank our office staff here at Macedonia that work diligently to take this load off of the sending church, pastor, and missionary.  On top of that, our staff has been training for months now in order to implement a new computer and accounting system which should go into effect April 1.  Would you please join us in prayer that all will go well with this transition?  Our missionaries and their works are depending upon it.  We certainly would appreciate your prayers for these needs.

In the month of July 2020, Cassie and I plan on attending Macedonia’s next European Church Planters Conference with our European field director, Dr. Roger Baker.  It is looking like the conference will be held in Germany again this year.  Would you please join us in prayer concerning the trip?  The plane tickets usually cost around $3000 for the two of us, and then there is lodging to consider as well.   In the past God has always provided for these needs, and we believe with all of our hearts that He will do the same this time as well.  Where He guides, He will provide!  Thank you for praying with us for this need.  It is certainly our heart’s desire to be a blessing to our nine families labouring for the Lord in Europe and the Middle East.

There are many highlights I could mention over the course of the last quarter, however one stands out among them all.  Cassie and I had a wonderful “World Missions Sunday” in January with Pastor Alan Sinclair and the wonderful people of the Berean Baptist Church of Ellenwood, Georgia.  What a blessing after I finished preaching Sunday morning to see a teenage boy walk the aisle and trust Christ as his Saviour.  I am glad God is still in the business of saving old sinners!

We could not do what God has called us to do without you.  Thank you for letting God use you.  Thank you for your faithfulness.  Thank you for labouring with us.  Because of the cause of Christ and with your help, we will continue by faith.

Dear Friends,

Cassie and I love this time of year!  Of course, to the world that does not know the Christ of Christmas personally, it is just a time for gifts, glitter, and get togethers.  However, to those of us that know Him as Lord and as Saviour, it is a wonderful time to reflect upon the greatest “mission’s outreach” in the history of mankind.  The Bible says in Galatians 4:4-5, “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”  The greatest gift that has ever been given is the gift you and I who are saved offer to “whosoever” every time we share the Gospel.  It is the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  It is our heart’s desire to be soul winners every day of our lives.  The great God of glory has put in our hearts to share the same Gospel that has changed our lives with the rest of the entire world.  Therefore as we have said so many times before, thank you for laboring with us.  It is only through your faithful prayers and support that we are able to do what God has called us to do.  Only eternity will reveal the true worth of our labor together.

Shortly before my friend Dr. Stinnett Ballew passed away, he challenged me to keep a record of the money that was raised for missions during the mission’s conferences that God allowed me to preach.  Having felt led of the Lord to do so, Cassie and I set a goal of having at least a small part in raising over one million dollars for world evangelism in 2019.  Having prayed, labored, and traveled literally thousands of miles this year, we have not only witnessed that goal being met but far exceeded by several hundred thousand dollars.  To God be the glory!  Although we realize it takes much more than just finances to get missionaries to the field, we praise the Lord for the faithful giving of God’s people.  Truly it takes each of us doing our part in order to reach the world with the Gospel.

Over the course of the last few prayer letters, I have told you about our next mission’s trip to Burkina Faso.  We have planned and prepared two years for this trip. We purchased our round-trip tickets ($4200) and got all the shots required ($400) to get into the country.  However, as much as it breaks our hearts it appears the Lord has shut this door to us for now.  Less than forty-eight hours after purchasing our airline tickets, we received an email from the U.S. Department of State with a “Do Not Travel Advisory” for the country.  Just last week fourteen people were shot and killed in an attack on a church in eastern Burkina Faso.   We sought counsel from our Pastor as well as Brother Keith Shumaker, missionary to Burkina Faso, and have decided to postpone the trip.  Please pray that God would continue to give direction as we pray about our next trip.

On a better note, the forty-third annual Macedonia Conference was held this year at the Calvary Baptist Church of Statesville, North Carolina.  The Pastor, Dr. Chris Haizlip and the staff of CBC did an outstanding job preparing for the meeting.  They were very gracious hosts.  There were thirty-one MWBM families present during the conference, and it proved to be one of the greatest we have ever had.  Our hearts were both stirred and challenged to do more for the cause of Christ than we have ever done before.  We also prayed together that God would call more men to preach and more families to the mission field.  Truly the night is coming when no man can work. Will you go?  Will you pray?  Will you give so that others can go?

In closing, let me say again thank you very much for your prayers and faithful support.  Several of our supporting churches have sent gifts for Christmas for which Cassie and I are so very grateful.  However more than anything, we appreciate your prayers and your friendship.  It is because of that as well as the faithfulness of our wonderful Lord that we by the grace of God will continue by faith.


For the sake of souls,

Dr. Scott Caudill
