Dear Friends and Co-labourers,

Cassie and I trust this letter finds each of you well and enjoying the manifold blessings of our wonderful Lord.  Has not the Lord been good to allow us to serve Him?  We rejoice in the opportunity that we have been given not only to serve the Lord, but to serve Him alongside of God’s wonderful people.  We truly are labourers together for the cause of Christ.  Thank you for your faithfulness in praying, supporting, and giving so that Cassie and I might continue to do what God has called us to do.

Since our last prayer letter we have been in churches in North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Nebraska, Mississippi and New Mexico.  We are very grateful for traveling mercies and for more opportunities to “fan the flame” of world evangelism.  We constantly pray for the Lord to open the doors that He would have opened and have absolutely been amazed to see Him do so.  Recently while preaching at the Midwestern Jubilee, at the invitation of Macedonia church planter Andrew Schank and the Great Commission Baptist Church of Blair Nebraska, a teen-age boy named Justin was gloriously saved by the good grace of God.  It never gets old seeing people pass from death unto life having responded to the Gospel.  We have also been thrilled to see the Lord stir the hearts of His people in giving more than they have ever given before by faith in order to reach the world with that same gospel.  Oh what a thrill it is to see the Lord work!  September through November is our busiest time of year for missions revivals.  Will you please help me pray that God would use us in a very special way during these meetings?  From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your prayers.

As a result of your prayers and financial support I was also blessed to be a part of Macedonia’s Southwest Orientation in Waterflow, New Mexico.  Pastor Don Chitty, missionary to the Navajo Indians, and Pastor of the Open Bible Baptist Church there was a very gracious host to say the least.  Brother John Beck (Macedonia’s Southwest Field Director) did an outstanding job leading the classes as well as moderating the services.  I believe our church planters in the Southwest were both encouraged and
enabled to stay the course for God in their various works.  I could not have been a part of that very important and needed week without your help.  Thank you!

In my last letter I mentioned that next year Cassie and I plan to travel to Europe in order to be a part of a conference being planned by our European Field Director, Dr. Roger Baker.  Currently, MWBM has 11 families serving in Europe and the Middle East.  I believe God has put it in our hearts to be in some of their churches, visit with them, encourage them, preach to them and try our very best to be a blessing to them while there.  Some of our supporting churches have asked about helping with the expense of the trip.  What a blessing!  Thank you so much.  The airfare for the two of us currently is about $3000.  Then of course there is lodging for a week to ten days we have to plan for as well.  Needless to say the cost of such a trip is very expensive.  Therefore, I have asked our secretary here at the home office to set up a travel expense account for the European conference in July, 2018.  This is a step of faith.  I am firmly convinced if God wants us in Europe in July of next year, He is more than able to meet the need.  I assure you this is not a frivolous request on our part, but rather a real need.  I truly feel this trip will enable me to be a more effective General Director for the cause of missions in Europe and even the world for God’s glory.

In closing I rejoice in the wonderful 43rd annual MWBM conference recently hosted by the Corinth Baptist Church of Loganville, Ga.   During this meeting Macedonia celebrated 50 years of assisting local Independent Baptist Churches service their missionaries.  Thank you Pastor Tommy Foskey and church family for going out of your way to be a blessing to the over 30 MWBM families that attended the conference.  As a result of your encouragement, as well as the many that labor with us, we continue by



Serving Him with gladness,


Dr. Scott Caudill
