The summer is in full swing here on the Mississippi gulf coast. Our good friends Joey and Julie Gilbert are here again ministering to countless folks in the area through sister churches. Their dedication to the Lord and His work continues to amaze me as they have poured years of their lives into our community for the cause of Christ. Their crew from Georgia have been busy doing Vacation Bible Schools, sports camps, and just loving on people in the name of Jesus. May God be glorified through their efforts and may the gospel take root for long lasting fruit, to the praise of His name.
As pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church in Monticello KY, Tommy Floyd led multiple teams to Lakeshore following Hurricane Katrina. His folks did an amazing job at building numerous homes in our area. They also worked on our new church building. We can not thank them enough for their service for the glory of God.
Bro. Tommy now serves as director of missions for the Pulaski Baptist Association in KY. His heart for missions continues to shine through. This week he is leading a team from their association to serve in Port Arthur, TX. They spent the night with us here in our bunk house this weekend as they travel to their mission trip destination. What a joy it is to partner with such mission minded people for the cause of Christ.
