Life has certainly been full of firsts lately! We have had our first missions conference, our first website, and this is our first prayer letter. It is amazing to see how the Lord blesses those that follow Him. We just participated in a missions conference at our home church, Good News Baptist Church, in Chesapeake, VA. We had a blast! The Lord taught us so much through the preaching of Dr. Whetstone as well as the kindness of the people. At the end of the week I had my ordination counsel and on Sunday the church voted to ordain me.
Sarah and I are learning that the beginning of a ministry is quite an exciting time in which we are able to see the Lord work in miraculous ways! It is also a time of intense work! Please be praying that the Lord will help us to establish a firm schedule in our daily lives as we adjust to full time ministry. Also, please pray that as we begin to call pastors that we will be able to quickly fill up our meeting slots! We are excited to see how the Lord will work as we begin our ministry.
Until the islands are His,
Josh and Sarah Wagar
