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.  
 
Sincerely, 
Dr. Scott Caudill

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.

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Caudill

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.

Dear Fellow Laborers,

The psalmist encourages us in Psalm 68:3…”But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.” We have much to rejoice over as God’s children! Our names are recorded in heaven; our souls are safe in Jesus; our sins have been forgiven; our future is bright! Cassie and I are also rejoicing over the privilege to serve Him on your behalf as your missionaries. He has been so very good to us. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for your prayers and financial support.

You may remember at the first of the year Cassie and I set a goal to have a small part in helping churches raise one million dollars for World Evangelism in 2019. World Missions Sundays, Missions Conferences, Faith Promise meetings, Special Missions Offerings…we have been keeping track of the money churches in these kinds of meetings have raised to send the gospel around the world. Thus far, with four months to go in the year, our records show that faith promise commitments and missions giving have totaled $825,000. We still have several missions conferences and special Sundays to go. Therefore we are continuing to pray the Lord will help us reach and exceed this million dollar goal. Of course, this is a result of many hours of travel, prayer, and preparation, as well as your faithful giving and partnership with us in this ministry. Thus far in this quarter alone our travels have taken us to NC, SC, AL, FL, TN, VA, and GA. We could not do this work without the faithful prayers and giving of churches like yours. Please know we are doing what we can do to make sure that fruit abounds to your account, our great God is being magnified, and His great plan to reach the world with the Gospel is being carried out.

We would like to say a special thank you to Heaven Bound Baptist Church and Pastor Jimmy Settle of North Wilkesboro, NC, who received a special offering to go toward our travels to Africa and Europe next year. We are saving now to purchase airline tickets to go to Burkina Faso, West Africa, in January to visit our MWBM church planters, the Keith Shumaker family. We expect these tickets to cost around $3,000. We also have a scheduled meeting in the Netherlands to take part in a church planters conference with all of our European missionaries in July, 2020. I have asked our office staff to set up an account to put back money to prepare for the expenses for these trips. Please join us in prayer that the Lord would help us as we make plans for these visits with our missionaries.

Recently while in a missions revival in Crestview, FL, Cassie was able to share the gospel with a young lady who worked at the hotel where we were staying. Please help us pray for Donelle that she would receive the help she needs from the Lord. Also, as our travels allow Cassie is now volunteering periodically in Bible clubs in the public schools. She is able to share the gospel each week with elementary school children. Pray for fertile ground in the hearts of these youngsters and that they would receive Christ as their Savior.

In closing, please know that we are trying to be a faithful witness for our Lord everywhere we go. I often say world evangelism does not begin across the sea… it begins across the street. Each Christian should endeavor to reach their neighbors, friends, and family for Christ, as well as give to send missionaries around the world to every mission field. It is only with your determination to do so that Cassie and I are able to continue by faith.

 

For the sake of souls,

Dr. Scott Caudill

Dear Co Labourers,
 
To God be the glory, great things He has done!  Cassie and I write with exciting news since our previous letter.  Over the course of the last quarter our Executive Board has been very busy.  We have approved new missionary families to the Southwest as well as the Northwest USA.  Another couple has committed to be a part of our “church rescue” ministry and assist struggling churches across America.  In just a few days we will be interviewing another family that has filed application to take the Gospel to China.  These are exciting days to say the least; days in which we have been reminded that God is not through calling His people to very specific fields of service.  It is our joy here at Macedonia to labor alongside of these sending churches and pastors in order that others may hear the same good news that changed our lives.  Praise the Lord!
 
We have had the busiest spring since our service began with Macedonia.   Week after week, while staying in close contact with our home office, it has been our joy to travel from state to state as ambassadors for world evangelism.  God has granted safety over the course of thousands of miles of traveling for which we are grateful.  He has also given us souls for our labor.  Recently, while soul winning during a mission conference at the Freedom Baptist Church of Fayetteville, NC, where Brother Paul Worley serves as the pastor, I had the privilege of leading a seventeen-year-old young man to the Lord.  What a joy!  I am also praying for another man I met that week by the name of David.  David was so kind to allow me to share the Gospel with him; however, he has yet to respond to it.  Will you please join me in prayer for David?  The greatest need right now in David’s life is his need of a Saviour
 
We also want to ask you to be much in prayer as Cassie and I plan two separate missions trips in 2020.  We are not sure at this point if she will be able to attend both; however, our plans are to be in Africa in  January, as well as Europe in July of next year.  Currently we are saving as much as we can and trusting the Lord to supply the finances in order that we may purchase the airline tickets.  The Lord is able!  He  has reminded us of that time and time again.  In fact, we want to personally thank Pastor Travis Blackwell and our friends at the Westside Baptist Church of Spartanburg, SC, who have been so very gracious to send monthly support specifically designated for travel.  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.  God has been so gracious to us through His people.  We do not take that lightly neither do we take it for granted.  We are determined to be good and gracious stewards of the support that God gives.  We have set up a separate travel account here at the office as we plan for the trips I have mentioned next year.  We sure would appreciate your prayers for safety as well as for the financial need to be met.
 
Five years ago last month, Cassie and I left the pastorate after twenty two years in order for me to serve as the General Director of MWBM.  It would be absolutely impossible for me to share the names of all the people that God has used to assist us in doing what God has called us to do.  However, let me say to each of you yet again, thank you.  We love and appreciate you all and count it an honor to labor alongside of you for the Gospel’s sake.  Therefore, in light of the great need of the world, we continue by faith.
 
For the sake of souls,
Dr. Scott Caudill

Dear Fellow Labourers,
 
Cassie and I greet you in the name which is above every name, the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are honored to labor alongside
of each of you to reach the world with the Gospel.  I often think of how God could have chosen any number of ways to impact this world for the cause of Christ, yet He has chosen to use both you and me.  Therefore, if we are to make the greatest difference for the Lord, we must see the need to labor together.  Paul wrote in I Timothy 3:6-7, I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.  Some of us may plant, others may water, but only the Lord can bless our efforts together to the point that a harvest is produced.  We pray for that and are honored to labor with you to that end.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your prayers and financial support.
 
Since our last prayer letter our travels to “fan the flame of world evangelism” have taken us to Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and our home state of Georgia.  Of course, when I say, “fan the flame of world evangelism,” I am not just talking about special meetings and opportunities to preach, I am also talking about being soul winners ourselves.  Cassie and I remind ourselves every day to be “soul conscience” everywhere we go.  Throughout the course of our daily lives we continuously come in contact with people that Jesus died on the cross to save.  Please help us pray that God would use each Gospel tract and each Gospel presentation that we give to take root in the hearts of the people that hear it, thus resulting in precious souls being saved for God’s honor and His glory.
 
Cassie and I are also asking the Lord to use us to play a small part in helping local churches raise one million dollars this year for world evangelism.  Thus far, every Mission’s Sunday and conference have resulted in an increase in faith promise giving.  Praise the Lord!  An increase in mission’s giving means more missionaries getting to the field and more churches being planted, thus resulting in more people hearing the Gospel message.  Of course, giving is just one way we can reach others with the Gospel.  We were very pleased this quarter to be reminded that God is still calling people to go themselves as we approved another missionary to South Africa.  We are convinced that God is still calling men and women to the mission field!  Whether it be across the street or across the sea, each of us have been commissioned by our Lord to take the Gospel to whosoever we may meet along life’s way.  Here in our home office we pray daily not only for our Macedonia missionaries on the field, but also for God to burden many more hearts to surrender to do whatever God would have them to do to reach others with the Gospel.  Certainly, the Lord Jesus said it best when He said in Luke 10:2b, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.  Please join us in prayer this quarter that God would raise up more labourers for His harvest.
 
Again, thank you for partnering with the Caudill family in your prayers and financial support so we can continue to do what God has called us to do.  In May of this year, we will mark five years since leaving the pastorate to become the General Director of MWBM.  We are firmly persuaded to believe that the best is yet to come.  Therefore, we continue by faith.

For the sake of souls,

Dr. Scott Caudill
 
 

 



December 2018

Dear Friends and Co Labourers,

Paul wrote to his beloved friends at Philippi in Philippians 1, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,…”  Paul shared the kind of relationship with the believers at Philippi that caused him to thank God for them every time He brought them to his remembrance.  Today, Cassie and I feel the same way about each of you.  As a result of your faithful prayers and financial support we are able to continue doing what God has called us to do.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

We are thrilled to be able to partner with you to reach the world with the Gospel.  Just since our last letter, our travels to fan the flame of world evangelism have taken us to Utah, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and of course our home state of Georgia.  Not only have we had the privilege of helping churches with their missions outreach through missions conferences and special Sundays, but also we have had the opportunity to share the gospel on numerous occasions along the way.  I want to assure you that both Cassie and I realize that world evangelism does not begin across the sea, but rather across the street.  Would you please join us in prayer that the seed of the gospel that has been sown will take root and produce fruit in the hearts of those to whom we have witnessed?

I have been preaching a message lately that I have entitled, “Being a Blessing to America.”  Throughout the course of the message I place special emphasis on the great need of reaching our own country with the Gospel.  Recently while preaching in NC, a young man who had surrendered to missions but was still praying about where to go, approached me to tell me that God had burdened his heart that night to reach America!  Praise the Lord!  That, ladies and gentlemen, is beyond a shadow of a doubt the hope of our great country.  Again, while preaching that same message at another church, we were amazed at the number of people that asked us afterward how they might support church planting here in our own country.  Of course, it was our joy to tell them.  We praise the Lord for what we see the Lord doing along the way.  God is not through calling men to the mission field or using those who desire to be a help and a blessing to missionaries to get the job done!  Truly, we are labourers together with Christ as the Bible teaches us in I Corinthians 3:9.  Each and every one of us can and should have a part in reaching the world with the Gospel.  Will you pray?  Will you give?  Will you go?

We have also been very busy here at our home office in Hoschton, Georgia, as well.  We have departure interviews scheduled with church planters headed to both Argentina and Nicaragua, with more to come as missionaries reach their targeted support level while on deputation.  We have also interviewed, and Lord willing, will be approving a national church planter in Venezuela, with another interview scheduled with a missionary to Brazil.  This is an answer to prayer for which we are tremendously grateful.  Please join us in praying that God would raise up even more labourers in the days to come.  Remember Jesus said in Matthew 9:38, “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

By the time many of you receive this letter Christmas time will be upon us.  Cassie and I want you to know that we consider your friendship and partnership with us as a precious gift from God for which we do not take for granted or lightly.  Therefore we thank you and wish each of you a very Merry Christmas.  As a result of our wonderful Lord’s faithfulness through each of you, we continue by faith.

 

For the sake of souls,

Dr. Scott and Cassie Caudill

September 2018

Dear Friends and Co-Laborers,

As always, Cassie and I greet you in the name that is above every other name, the Lord Jesus Christ.  As we correspond this quarter, it is with a deep sense of gratitude and praise for literally thousands of miles of safe travel and many opportunities to share the Gospel while on our way.  It has been our joy to represent you and your church family while traveling abroad and at home for the cause of Christ.

The highlight of the quarter was the blessing of being part of our Macedonia European Church Planter’s Conference in Rothenburg, Germany.  Within just twelve days, Cassie and I traveled through seven countries, stayed in two missionary’s homes, and spent three days with our European missionary families during the conference. 

Upon arriving in England, it was our joy to spend a few days with Brother Jonathan and his wife, Mrs. Natalie VandenHurk.   They are being used of the Lord in a mighty way at the Calvary Baptist Church in Peterborough, England.  I was amazed to see God bless their services during the Lord’s Day when we were with them.  I preached Sunday morning, Cassie taught the children’s Sunday school during the afternoon, and we were thrilled to hear Bro. VandenHurk preach the Sunday evening service.  What a day we had!  We left greatly encouraged after having spent time with this great couple and their church family.  

From England, it was on to Germany where we met with nine MWBM missionary families serving in Europe for the Church Planter’s Conference.  Dr. Roger Baker, MWBM’s European/Middle East Field Director, did a wonderful job planning and preparing for the conference.  I know each family was blessed and encouraged as we all spent time together around the things of the Lord.  I truly believe each family left challenged to stay the course for the cause of Christ. Cassie and I both taught classes during the conference and greatly enjoyed spending time with the missionaries.  We were encouraged as we visited with them and got a better understanding of their burden, their passion, their struggles, and accomplishments.   The Lord is using this group of people to spread the gospel to Europe, but more laborers are needed!  Would you consider joining them as they seek souls for Christ?

After the conference, we joined Bro. Jeremiah and Mrs. Lindsay Cooley along with their daughter Ruth, at their home in southern Germany.  On Sunday, we traveled with them into Liechtenstein where they hold services each week.  This is a closed country, but the Cooleys are spreading the gospel there.  It was our joy to meet a young man Bro. Cooley led to Christ just recently.    I am convinced God is going to use the Cooleys in a great way in Liechtenstein.

If not for your faithful prayers and support, we could not have made this remarkable trip.  Our hearts are burdened more than ever for the great need for Christ to be preached around the world.   We send to you sincere thanks for your generosity and sacrifice in getting us to Europe. 

The need is great, but the laborers are few.   Let us each one heed Christ’s plea to pray the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth laborers.  Also, consider visiting the mission field yourself to be an encouragement to your missionaries.  If you were on a foreign field, what a tremendous blessing it would be to you to receive a visit from someone who cared for you and sought to spur you on in the work of the Lord.  At Macedonia, we would love to help you get to the field in any capacity you feel led to go. 

Please join us in prayer for Dylan, a young man I had the privilege of witnessing to recently while we were on the road.  Everyone everywhere needs the gospel!  It is our great joy and honor to be your ambassadors for Christ!

Since returning from Europe we have resumed a busy schedule here in our home office and on the road.  Truly the hour is late, and the need is great!  Therefore, with the help of the Lord as well as our co Labourers we continue by faith. 

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott and Cassie Caudill
Ps. 28:7

Dear Co Labourers,

Cassie and I greet you as always in the name which is above every name, the Lord Jesus Christ.  It is only through Him that we have the hope of eternal life.  It is only through your faithful prayers and financial support that we can serve Him to the greatest extent.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.  We count it an honor to labor alongside of you for the cause of a world that stands in need of the Saviour.

First of all we want to thank every church, as well as every individual that helped us financially with the cost of our trip to Europe for our Macedonia World Baptist Missions European church planters conference coming up in the month of July in Rothenburg, Germany.  We are so glad to be able to report to you that between what Cassie and I have saved and what our supporting churches and individuals have given, every need has been supplied!  To God be the glory!  We also plan to attend church services with MWBM missionaries Jonathan and Natalie VandenHurk (England) as well as Jeremiah and Lindsey Cooley and family (Liechtenstein) while in Europe.  Needless to say we will be traveling many thousands of miles within the almost two weeks we will be out of the United States and therefore would certainly appreciate your prayers for safety.  I am convinced that only eternity will reveal the fruit of our efforts together as we make this trip.  Thank you for allowing us to represent you and your church family while in Europe and abroad.  Rest assured that is a task that we do not take lightly.

Since our last prayer letter, Cassie and I have “fanned the flame of world evangelism” in New York, Maryland, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, as well as our home state of Georgia.  Week after week, while traveling literally thousands of miles we count it all joy with your help to do what God has called upon us to do.  We have also been very busy here in our home office preparing for orientation and training June 18 through 21.  Lord willing, we will have the largest number of missionary families this year that we have had in several years.  Our executive board has also been busy.  Recently, they have approved two new missionary families to Argentina, one family to Peru, and another family to be a part of our USA church rescue ministry as well.  Every time God raises up another family I am reminded that He is still in the business of calling and separating His people for the work of world evangelism.  My prayer is that He would raise up even more as we approach His soon return.  We are not only praying to that end here at Macedonia, we are laboring to that end as well.  Let me encourage you to take out a map and take a good long look.  There are needs everywhere!  People need the Gospel!  Will you go?  Just remember MWBM can help your local church get you there.

Out of all the wonderful things I have spoken of in this quarter’s letter, I believe the best would be to mention the two precious souls that we have seen saved in meetings as we have traveled.  After all, that is really what the ministry is all about: souls!  Souls that Jesus died for!  Souls that He longs to use each of us to reach with His glorious Gospel.  Because of that, and for His glory, we continue by faith.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Caudill
