We loved being with the people at Victory Baptist Church in Macon, Georgia. Pastor Kenny Hamm was a particular blessing to us. Although we desired to serve them, we definitely left feeling like the ones who were being served. Being a recipient of the people’s generous giving was a tremendous encouragement to us.
It was exciting to see God work in the hearts of believers and unbelievers alike this week. Several adults, teens, and children each made professions of faith in Jesus Christ alone for their only hope of salvation. We praise God for His gift of salvation! Matt and the team enjoyed some great time with the teens each night before the service. Wednesday night, they met an hour before the service for some human foosball and broom hockey. There was some intense competition! Monday and Tuesday night, there was a big push to bring visitors with a churchwide “pack a pew” night. It was encouraging to see so many folks inviting coworkers, neighbors, family members, and friends to hear the Gospel.
Each morning, one of the guys spoke for school chapel at Victory Baptist Academy. Praise the Lord that on the last morning, a little boy trusted Christ as his Savior! The week after we were in Macon, we found out that a man and a student trusted Christ. We all just need to be faithful seed planters and waters...God is the One who gives the increase. Praise the Lord we can rest in the work that He does in people’s hearts.
It was a privilege to partner with Pastor Kenny Hamm and Victory Baptist Church & Academy. We praise God for the work He is doing and will continue to do in Macon, GA. For pictures from the week, check out our Facebook page.
