October Newsletter 2018

Uncovering the Purpose of God

I believe that every one of us has a calling on our life. That calling is in our spiritual DNA. That calling is not just for preachers, but to every person to fulfill a specific plan.  Adam was to be fruitful and multiply; Eve was to be a helper; Abraham was to be a great nation; Moses was to bring God's people out of Egypt.
  • John Wooden, former UCLA basketball coach said, "Do not let what you cannot do, keep you from what you can do".
  • Don't confuse your occupation with your purpose. Don't assume your job is your purpose. It can be a part of it and useful, but we need to look beyond just our skills. William Carey-missionary said, "My business is to witness for Christ, I make shoes to pay my expenses".
  • Don't pursue something that you hope to have and neglect your true purpose. You can be sincerely wrong.
  • Wrong attitudes can defeat your purpose. Timing and seasons are important to our purpose. We need discernment.
  • Don't focus on your purpose at the expense of your personal relationship with God. Purpose will come out of your personal relationship. Everything we need and our calling is found in His presence. Seek the Lord and spend time with Him.
I find so many people wandering in their lives. No destination. Wandering is a curse! Stop going in circles and focus your life towards Jesus. Allow Him to guide you into your reason for living.

This month the message is titled, "Worship from a Sinner". I love this story from Luke. A woman called a sinner, worshiped the Lord in a meaningful way. Sometimes we become more religious than real. We need to set aside our traditions and allow ourselves the opportunity to worship the Lord with all our heart!

Mission News

Most of you are aware of the devastation that has taken place in Florida and South Georgia from Hurricane Michael. I have many friends who are struggling. I have already been able to send $800 to help buy needed supplies. I can help organize teams and distribute money, if you would like to help with this need. 

There are just a couple of spots left for someone interested in joining us in January to see the Holy Land. You must make a decision quickly and let me know if you are interested. You can download a full brochure from my web site.

Michael McCarty and I travel to Cambodia and China on October 29. We will meet with many of our missionaries that work in Cambodia, rescuing women and children from human trafficking. It is an honor to be able to encourage these heroes as they serve so selflessly. We have about 32 missionaries that work in different areas of ministry, but all work for the same cause. Please pray for our retreat that the Lord will bring peace and hope to these precious people. We will then visit Doug and Jenny McGee (The Starfish Project) in Beijing, China. They have been long term missionaries with us and have done phenomenal things in China. Thanks for your prayers and support as we make this long trek around the world.

Upcoming Schedule

  • October 28: Abundant Life Church, Mt. Juliet, TN
  • October 29-November 8: Cambodia/China Mission Trip
  • November 18: Faith Family Church, N. Augusta, SC
  • December 2: New Covenant Church, Starkville, MS

The third annual Reignited Men's Event-The attending men and I had a wonderful time in Toccoa, Georgia. We spent several days together sharing the Word of God, praying for one another, and enjoying life together. So thankful for the relationships the Lord has given me through the years.

Ronald's Remarks

I am so thankful for the life God has given me. I have great friends and enjoy the fellowship they give. The last couple of months has been extremely busy, but productive. I want to say thank you to all of you who take time to read this newsletter and keep up with our travels. I appreciate your prayers and financial support. These are important days to be involved in Kingdom life. Don't allow insignificant things to keep you from pursuing your destiny.
Now is the time and You are the one who can make a difference. You can partner with us to reach out to the people around the world. We can't change everyone, but we can make a difference in at least one life. Who knows how many that person will touch?
