Dear Faithful Supporters and Praying Friends:
Lamentations 3:22 “It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.” As I write this letter, Hurricane Dorian is on our coast. Just over a week ago, we were in St Vincent waiting on it to pass over us, and I can say God is good to us. Thank God for His mercy.
We have had our regular services in the Prisons and Jail these two months. We had 5 men ask the Lord to be their Savior, Praise God. We have two more Revivals in the Prisons this year; one in October and one in November. Please pray for these meetings as well as our regular services. I am thankful for the men that have helped me in the Prison as I have been traveling. Thankful for faithful men.
The men have all returned to the Islands. We had a great Jubilee again this year. We traveled many miles again this year carrying them to meetings. Thank you to every Church that had them in while they were here. I also want to thank everyone who carried some of them around this year. It took a group effort by many men to get them all to their meetings and back. THANK YOU FOR HELPIING.
We just got back from our trip to St. Vincent and Bequia. We had a great time with our men there. We spent the first week in Bequia with Brother Timothy Mitchell and Gospel Light Baptist Church. Brother Chip preached for him Sunday morning and we both preached for Him in the tent.
We had VBS in the mornings. Each morning Brother Rob and Pam taught the class while Becky and Angie took care of the crafts. Brother Chip and I helped keep the kids in line. Brother Timothy and Syprian were in charge of the game time.
We traveled back to St. Vincent by boat on Saturday morning where Brother Claudius Harry met us and we went to his place to begin week two. During this week hurricane Dorian came through and hindered us for two days. Praise the Lord only wind and rain and the Island was spared damage by the storm. We had VBS only three mornings and services in the evenings due to the storm. I had the privilege to lead two boys to the Lord one night when Brother Chip preached. To God be Glory.
We also gave out school supplies to each child at the end of VBS at both places, thanks to your giving. We were asked by Brother Harry to come back early next year to help him start another Church. We are hoping to help him with this need and we could use a few more men to help canvas the area. If you are interested, let me know. Brother Harry is 82 years old and has planted 7 churches. He said, “I want to plant one more”. I hope to help him. We need Church Planters. Will you pray? Will you go?
We are already looking for tickets for trips next year. We hope to be in Haiti around Jan. 20- Feb. 3. We have our Jubilee in St. Vincent next April, along with several other trips. Next year looks to be busy. We want to do our best for Him. Thank you to all who have given and prayed for us as we serve the Lord, we desire fruit that abounds to your account.
If we can assist you in any way, please, contact me and we will help in any way we can. God bless you as you serve Him.
Your Missionaries in His Service;
Joe & Becky Hendricks
