Re: Ministry Update from Evangelist David and Joy Corn
God has given us a great end to our spring meetings this year; the last two months have flown by! We were privileged to serve in all new churches with wonderful pastors, and we enjoyed making new friends! We had a great Magic and Morality Rally at Camp Creek Baptist Church in Cornelia, GA with Pastor James Lyons in April. God opened the door for assemblies in two public schools, one Christian school, and three after school Bible clubs. We praise The Lord for 20 souls saved that week!
The next week we took some time off to celebrate our 3rd Anniversary!! We were able to enjoy a romantic getaway for a few days and reminisce over the wonderful things God has done in our lives over the last three years. We are especially excited about the new blessing God has decided to entrust us with; we cannot wait to add our little boy, Carson Levi, to our family come August! We would appreciate your continued prayers for the baby and for Joy as we have a particularly busy summer ahead, and she plans to travel all the way up until the birth, Lord willing. We will take a few weeks off in August to prepare for the baby, but we would like to stay together until then if at all possible.
The month of May had us traveling all over! We drove all the way to Byron, MI where we had a week of Revival Services with Pastor John Ashley at Antrim Baptist Church. The youth pastor, Pastor Josh Middaugh, is a good friend I interned with for 3 years; we enjoyed some great fellowship with them. The Lord gave us quite a few visitors throughout that week, and we had six saved!
The next week was also a Revival week with First Baptist Church of Prudenville, MI. We enjoyed meeting Pastor Stockwell and the sweet people of the church there. Sunday morning a visiting family came for the first time and 2 of their teenage children accepted Christ as their Savior! We praise The Lord for the 3 other souls that trusted Christ that week, as well.
From there we drove all the way back to Texas, where we rested for 1 day and then flew to FL for the Soldiers of the Cross Youth Conference at Lock Haven Baptist Church in Orlando. Pastor Stockton and the faithful people there did a tremendous job hosting this conference that about 10 other churches participated in. We praise The Lord for the opportunity of being part of that great rally!
We flew home from that conference, did our laundry, re-packed, and headed out two days later for Catalina, AZ! This was the first of our summer meetings. We started with a Friday night Youth Rally and then a week of VBS with Pastor Kurt Kramer and Open Door Baptist Church. God blessed tremendously with a high day of 65 and 25 saved for the week! Praise God!
We drove back to Texas, where we started a VBS at our home church, Christchurch Baptist Fellowship, yesterday. We have already had 17 saved! We would appreciate your prayers for this week, as well as for all of our upcoming meetings this summer. We will be doing 3 summer camps and 7 VBS weeks! We are excited to see how God will bless!
We do have major answer to prayer we would like to share with y'all! We have been praying for some time about getting a larger trailer so our kid(s) could have a bedroom. We wanted it to be a nice enough trailer that we could raise a family in for possibly the next 15-20 years. A few weeks ago, God miraculously provided everything we wanted and much more! We are overwhelmed by God's goodness! Thank you for praying!
Your faithful prayers and support are such an encouragement to us! Thank you for joining with us as we serve our Lord in full-time Evangelism! We are so grateful for your prayers and friendship!
