We asked you to pray for us in our Japan Missions Trip to Nagoya, Japan, and we are grateful that many did!
A blessing received upon returning home from Japan was a note of appreciation from Pastor Tim Melton. He outlines many of our labors and may Jesus be praised for whatever we could do for Jesus’ Kingdom. This letter reflects also the answer to the prayers of many.
Dear Pastor Recker and members of Heritage Baptist Church,
Thank you so much for all you and the mission team from Heritage Baptist Church did for us. We really appreciate your diligence, hard work, and wonderful spirit.
You all helped us distribute about 7000 meeting announcements to homes in our area; you helped with our friend party which everyone loved including the first time visitors; the ladies planed and executed the games, craft, and snacks for our children’s meeting; the men helped in our basket ball challenge though the turnout was not what we had hoped; you did a wonderful job of testimonies, special music and message during our Sunday School and Sunday service and were a great encouragement as you fellowshipped with the members and visitors afterwards during our BBQ potluck meal; you helped us clean out and organize the shed which needed to be done for a long time; you helped us paint the deck and it now looks amazing; you spent hours cleaning and getting the camp facilities ready for children’s camp next week; you folded hundreds of our church brochures in preparation for distribution; and you did a great job on the yard work.
You all were a blessing to us in so many ways: a help, an encouragement, an example, a testimony. You went above and beyond to make sure not only that you were not a burden to us financially but that you were an immense blessing to us in that area.
You were organized, prayerful, Biblical, and above all sought to glorify God in all situations.
Though each member had their own unique strength, you complimented each other to accomplish every goal in a way that reflected well on the Lord and Heritage Baptist Church.
We can’t thank you enough for being a great blessing to us. May the Lord bless you as you have blessed us.
Your servants for Christ,
Tim, Kim, Bekah, John & Hitomi
To God be the glory!
In Christ’s Love,
