Sunday October 13th we were ministering at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Elkhorn. Paul Vawter is the pastor of local church ministry and he and his family were out of town visiting family. I taught Sunday School on a lesson on the The Harvest. During the AM Service Carole provided special music, and I shared our DVD and a report of our ministry as well as preaching for the service.
It is a special privilege to have our son ministering in pastoral ministry in the state. Paul has been here a little over two years at Emmanuel. I was able to take him through my pastoral ministry mentoring course last year and it is great to see him showing real wisdom and fruit in his ministry.
In the past couple of years God has led several younger men into pastoral roles in the state. We still have several churches that are looking for a shepherd to lead their flock. Pray that God will lead the right man to each ministry.
