Grace Baptist Church
Last week was a blast at Grace Baptist Church in Newport, NC. We were there for their anual missions conference, and the Lord really blessed! We met many wonderful families, and made some friends! Many of the families we spoke with had served in the military in Japan, and it was interesting to hear about their experiences there!
We praise the Lord for all the work that went into the conference. Each day, members of the church would volunteer their time to make delicious meals for all the missionaries. We would also like to personally thank Georgia and Jess who opened their home to us, and even gave up their master bedroom for our comfort! We thank you for your sacrifice and are humbled by your generosity!
Throughout the week we were able to meet with Pastor Eborn and learn from his experiences as well as many of the staff members. Bro. Miller, had some great advice on culture shock and adjusting to life on the foreign field!
Grace Baptist has a radio station that broadcasts through many states, reaching tens of thousands of people. I am grateful for the opportunity to talk about Japan! If you would like to listen to their Christ honoring radio station you can do so by visiting their website at www.fbnradio.com. You can also listen to my plea for Japan, that aired last week, by clicking Will Hill to Japan FBN.
Dawn got saved!
We were able to go on visitation during the days of the conference with many of the men of the church and fellow missionaries. On Friday I was able to speak to a Catholic woman named Dawn. I began to talk to her about how my mom grew up Catholic and had many doubts about where she would go if she died. That struck a cord with Dawn, and she listened intently as I shared The Gospel. I saw tears begin to form in her eyes. I asked her if she understood what God had done for her, and if she would repent and turn to Christ. Right then and there she prayed accepting Christ as her Savior! Praise the Lord there’s still power in the Gospel! Please pray as Dawn grows in the Lord!
Hi Bro. Hill,
It was great getting to meet you and your family and having you at our church for the Missions Conference. Thank you for the work you do and your willingness to serve Him. We will be praying for you and your family as you prepare to go to the field.
Hey Will and Rebelle! We enjoyed having y’all here so much last week! It was a pleasure getting to know y’all and having help with our bus route! God bless you both as you prepare for Japan.
