Wyebrook Missionary Baptist Church

October, 2018

 

Dear Church Family and Friends of Wyebrook,

 

Thank you very much for your support of our special 50th anniversary celebration. Many of you helped in so many different ways. I have been very encouraged to see you “step up.” Whether you helped on the work day or independently on another day, special projects throughout the spring and summer, set up, serving or tearing down your extra effort is appreciated and the Lord takes notice of that too!

 

Psalm 40:11 reminds us, “By this I know that thou favorest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.” As I look back over the past 29 plus years I have been here and looking back at the history of the church I have seen many ups and downs and though we as a church may have been down we have never been out. God’s favor has triumphed over the difficulties we have faced! That greatly encourages me and I hope it does you also.

 

I am reminded what Jesus said in Matthew 16:18 “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter: and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Certainly Jesus was not talking about the building or Peter, but himself as the Church’s cornerstone and foundation. To me that reminds me Jesus will be faithful to his Church no matter what! Our church is living proof of that.

 

Blessed we are way above any measure! May we keep counting our blessings, naming them one by one! Giving thanks for what the Lord has done and continues to do.

 

Blessed and Dependent upon the Master,

 

Pastor Perry

 

PS I think the Lord is just getting started with us at 50!
