The Hendricks Family July 6, 2019
Dear Faithful Supporters and Praying Friends:
Greetings once again in the Name of Jesus our soon coming King. I trust you all had a great Independence Day here in the USA. We spent time with family and had a great time ourselves.
During the last two months, in the prisons, we have had one Revival at Lincolnton Correctional. We were able to serve snow cones to the entire Camp on Saturday morning of the meeting. It is always a blessing to see the men act like kids for a little bit and smile and make statements like, “Preacher, I have not had one of these in so many years.” As we are leaving, many men every year will say, “Thank you, Preacher for loving us.” We had a good meeting with men on the altar each night and one man getting saved.
In the other Prisons and Jail services, we saw four more men asking God to save them. In one of the camps recently we had a Sergeant follow us out to the car and we thought we had done something, when we got there, she said thank you for helping my Inmates. She came in at the end of the service and two men got saved. She said, “I could feel the power of God”. Then she said, “Can I pray for you”? WELL GLORY. We stood there together as the Sargent prayed for us. What a night!
We left for the Philippines on May 13-25. It was a great trip. We spent the first week preaching a family camp for Brother Johnny Lim. We had a great time with them on the Mountain. The second week, we were in Ormoc City in Leyte. Again, preaching a family camp with my Pastor, Jerry Taylor. We had a great meeting there with over 700 in attendance. The second day, 9 young people surrendered to full time Christian service. Please pray for them. The last night of the meeting over 20 persons were saved. TO GOD BE GLORY! Every day in both camps, the alters were used. God’s people getting help and souls getting saved. Thank God for the privilege to serve HIM.
During this time our Missionaries from the Islands are coming in and we will be carrying them around to churches the next few months. Pray from them as they present their Ministries to the Churches during these days.
Also remember our annual Jubilee will be at Heaven Bound Baptist Church at 428 Costner School Rd. Bessemer City, NC 28016 on July 22-26. We would love to see you there. The evening services begin at 7:00 pm. And Tuesday through Friday the morning services will begin at 9:30 am. with Pastor Jeff Faggart, teaching on Missions in Baptist History. A lot of good preaching and fellowship, hope to see you there.
We have one more trip planned this year. We will leave for St. Vincent and Bequia, August 17-31. There will be 6 of us this time: Brother Chip & Angi Stowe, Brother Rob & Pam Abernethy and Becky and I. We will be doing Vacation Bible School during the day and preaching at night. Please pray for this trip for God’s provisions, protection as we travel and power as we minister. That souls will get saved and saints will get help.
We packed four barrels yesterday to send to St. Vincent and Bequia. They contain Bibles, New Testaments, Tracts, Sunday School material and supplies for the VBS. Thank you to each one of you that stepped up and helped us with this project.
In closing, let me say that we are so grateful to be a part of your Mission outreach. If I can assist you in any way, please, let me know. God has been so good to Becky and I all these years. Thank you for your love, Prayers and support in our Lord’s ministry. We desire fruit that abounds to your account.
We are in the planning stages for VBS next year in possibly two different Islands. Pray about going and helping us it will forever change your life. Pray for more laborers in the field there is so much to do but so few to go.
Your Missionaries in His Service;
Joe & Becky Hendricks
