SUMMERDALE, Ala (BNC) — “A group of 35 people (adults and children) traveled over three hours on an uncovered trailer pulled behind a tractor on roads that many would consider impassable just to hear the Gospel preached. They came knowing there were no beds to sleep in. Some slept in tents, others slept in the church building on the floor, and some slept under the trailer on the ground, eager to hear the Word the next day,” states Terri Robertson of Northport, AL.
Terri was a team member of 13 Christians who traveled to Guyana, South America, February 24-March 17, 2014, with Jerry O. Davidson to conduct seminars with the church in Yupukari and Lethem, and a campaign for Christ in Sand Creek Village.
Team members participating in the mission effort were: Front L-R: Terri Robertson, Hazel Rands, Carolyn Johnson, Roger Comstock, Director. Back L-R: Jerry O. Davidson, Bryant Evans, David Paher, John Langham, Gene Johnson, Mark Jamieson.
Roger Comstock reported the campaign finished with 15 baptisms and 35 restorations while team members conducted 193 Bible studies.
Jerry Davidson will be leading another mission campaign into Guyana, June 23-July 7, 2014. For more information contact Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a teenage girl, I prayed to marry a preacher. I knew no one who was desiring to be a preacher but each night I knelt by my bed and prayed, “Lord, if I am capable of being a preacher’s wife I would like to marry a preacher. If not, just let me marry a Christian.” God answered that prayer for me. Our local preacher, Jerry Humphries, preached in two gospel meetings that summer and invited a young man from Alabama Christian College (now Faulkner University) to preach in his absence. He brought his girlfriend with him so that took him out of the running. But when I learned they were coming back in a week or so, I asked if they didn’t have some fine young man they could bring down and let me meet. The girl thought for a minute, snapped her fingers and said, “Old Doug.” Old Doug and I have been married 54 years and have two children and two grandchildren. All our children are faithful members of the church. God is so good. I love Him so.
