Preparing for the Destins’ Visit

From Pastor Greg:

As most of you know, the Destin Family (Willio, Neecole, Abigail, and Gabrielle) will be with us at RCG this Sunday, Aug. 6. As we have the privilege of partnering with these dear folks for the advancement of Christ’s gospel in Haiti, please make plans to join us in both the morning and evening. Willio will be preaching from Psalm 20 in our morning worship service, his sermon entitled “Prayer for the Battle”. In the evening at 6:30pm, the Nevins family is hosting a dessert pot-luck with the Destins. Willio and Neecole will be sharing more detailed updates about the Lord’s work in Haiti, and there will be rich time for fellowship, Q&A, and prayer (not to mention significant amounts of ice cream as well!). Your presence and interest will be a great blessing to the Destins, and also help strengthen our collective vision of how God is working in other places like Haiti.

God’s will regarding how local churches should minister to missionaries like the Destins is clear:

5 Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, 6 who testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God. 7 For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth. (3 Jn. 5-8)

Regarding the Destins, as a church we strive to fulfill these exhortations through regular prayer and our monthly financial support. We also pray they’ll be encouraged through their time with us this Sunday. If you have a desire to bless the Destins through a financial gift beyond our monthly giving as a church, please feel free to do so this Sunday. A simple card with cash would probably be most encouraging to them. You could either give this to them directly, or we’ll have a basket at the Nevins’ home on Sunday night to collect cards.

Looking forward to sharing in what the Lord has for all of us on Sunday – the best day of the week!
