Dear Brethren and Friends of Baptist Faith Missions,

The Lord has given us a varied and enjoyable month. Our granddaughter, Virginia McGary, the youngest child of Lynn and Ross McGary was married in Maryville, Tennessee. They invited our son Paul to officiate the Ceremony.

(Lynn and Ross worked with exceptional children and youth Nashville Tenn., and in five other States. Lynn suffered with cancer. After three operations she was told they could not operate any more.)

Virginia was nine years old when Lynn realized she did not have long to live. She asked the Lord to let her live until Virginia was the age of 16. God granted her that request. Ross, her father, passed away two years ago.

At the wedding, we rejoiced to see so many of our family members and friends who attended the wedding.

We are living with Paul and Wanda Clermont, Florida. We are attending an active Missionary Baptist Church that is about five minutes from our home. Our son, Paul and his wife, Wanda, purchased a house and invited us to live with them. Wanda’s  widowed mother, Willa, also lives with them. She and her husband were missionaries in Eastern Kentucky for many years.

Paul is still active in the work in Brazil.  He makes trips there about every three months.  The Tabernacle Baptist Church is active in new works and presently are building a new building in the center of the city.

There are several churches here in central Florida that have a monthly Fellowship Meeting. We have enjoyed attending and fellowship. Brothers Doug King and George Sledd attend and we are thankful for their dedication and love for BFM. We thank all of you our faithful partners in His work. We love you and thank you.

Your missionaries,
John A. and Alta Hatcher
