September 2019

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
