Dear Church Friends and Family:
Here we are just barely into another year and God is blessing us so much! We have been having some really good numbers in our Sunday School classes, the youth group continues to grow, the men’s and women’s ministries are active, the clothes closet has seen an increase in customers, the Sunday night activities have been strong, and our worship services keep getting better. I want to give God the glory and thank Him for how He is moving and working in the hearts of you, the members of Iola Missionary Baptist Church.
With all these blessings we must keep and eye on the evil one because he does not want us to be active and productive for God. I ask that you keep steadfast in prayer and constant communication with the Father so that His Holy Spirit will intercede for us and protect us from the prince of lies. Join with me in celebrating these remarkable times God has given us at IMBC.
I would also like to thank God and thank the congregation for the wonderfully loving spirit that you show to Lisa and me. We are so grateful for your generosity and compassion towards us that normal "thank you"s do not seem enough. We pray that God will continue to bless all of you with His measures because we know that He is always more giving than we deserve.
