Dear Brothers and Sister,

Judy and I just returned from the Annual Thanksgiving Conference held in the facilities of New Hope Baptist Church, Dearborn Heights, MI. The folks from Grace Baptist Church, Wyandotte, MI, and New Hope worked together seamlessly to provide unforgettable hospitality and meals. We thoroughly enjoyed the time with you folks and were greatly blessed by the communication of God’s Word through the speakers.

As we returned home, we received the news that Jean-Luc Veuillet, a faithful member of the church in Tournefeuille. France, was in the hospital being treated for a torn carotid artery. Jean-Luc is a faithful believer and leader in the church. He and his family help in teaching and music ministries and are a source of great encouragement to the whole church. We would appreciate your prayers for this man of God.

We continue to hear good news from our home church in France. The church has an internet site for our church body only where the members can speak to one another sharing news, prayer requests and blessings. Judy and I are able to keep up with what is happening there and they can get first handed news from us.

I am scheduling meetings with churches in the USA between now and the end of January. We would love to come to your church to tell about the work in France and/or share what God has placed on our hearts that might help your church serve where you are. It is our desire to do whatever we can to be a blessing and glorify God. Contact me at jmhatcher@aol.com if you would like for us to come to your church.

Thank you for your faithful support and prayers.
Your team members,
John and Judy Hatcher

Missionary Update: John & Alta Hatcher on Furlough from Brazil [December 2014]

Missionaries John and Alta Hatcher have served the Lord in Brazil since 1955, planting over 70 churches that are still in existence.

December 1, 2014

Dear Brothers and Mission Partners,

Each day as I think of how God has used our family, I thank Him for the Grace and blessings He has poured out on this unworthy person. I thank, you, dear friends for your faithful prayer and financial support through the sixty years God has used us in Brazil.

Also, Alta and I praise God for the wonderful children He given to us. We desired to have eight children, but we had only five. Like the five we have, if starting over, we would want at least eight. We praise our Lord for how He has and is using them and their dear wives and families in the Harvest of Souls.

The Annual Baptist Faith Missions Thanksgiving Conference at New Hope Baptist Church of Dearborn, Michigan was a great one. The messages were excellent, and the love and warmth of the pastor and people were wonderful. Thank you, Brother Adkins and the people of New Hope and others who helped!

On the way north to Dearborn Heights, we visited Emmanuel Baptist Church in Bellbrook, Ohio where Brother Darrel Messer is the pastor. We thank them for their love and generosity.

The work in Brazil is going well. Here we are trying to make more copies of “MEET THE HOLY SPIRIT” in book form and on CDs.

God bless each of you.

We thank you sincerely in the Name of our Lord Jesus.

John and Alta Hatcher

Dear Friends,

Blessed be the one and only true God and father, our Lord Jesus Christ. The Scripture says, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” It is reassuring to know our Heavenly father is aware of our every need and has made provision on our behalf. The Word is forever reminding us that: Yes, we can trust God, for He is looking out for us.

The beginning of the month was focused on the Missions Conference in Dearborn Heights – hosted by the New Hope Baptist Church and Pastor Terry Adkins. We — my parents, mother-in-law, Wanda and I — left Florida for Michigan looking forward to a great conference. We divided the trip in small increments so as not to wear everyone out. We stopped to visit our great friends in Georgia, Curtis and Katie Samples; and, as usual, had a wonderful visit. We then went to Mayfield in western Kentucky and visited with my wife’s family and attended Wednesday evening service at Trace Creek Baptist Church, where my mom-in-law is a member. From there we took a longer two-day break in Lexington.

Sunday we were blessed to be at Emmanuel Baptist Church with Pastor Darrel Messer. Dad spoke in the Sunday School hour and I spoke in the morning worship. We are so blessed to be with Pastor Messer and his wife and are so grateful for their kindness and supportiveness. On Sunday evening we visited Grace Baptist Church with Pastor Mark Pyles. We had a great opportunity to share what God is doing in Brazil. We saw pastor emeritus, Paul Kirkman, a friend of many years, who also served faithfully as director of Baptist Faith Missions.

The Missions Conference was blessed. All the messages in song and the preaching were uplifting and an encouragement to take the gospel across our street and around the world. The beautiful and wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord – God in the flesh – died, was buried and on the third day arose from the dead, and is life eternal to all who believe. This Salvation is graciously given by the loving God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be the Lord throughout all eternity.

We pray for you that your remembrance and knowledge of our Lord, the only true God, may abundantly increase in wisdom and discernment, that your trust and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ may be steadfast always, and that the love of his Holy Spirit may fill and overflow in your every word and action, with thanksgiving to God though Jesus Christ our only Lord and Life.

Love,
Paul and Wanda
