Baptist International Missions, Inc. P.O. Box 9215 Chattanooga, TN 37412 Non-Profit Organization U.S. POSTAGE PAID Permit No. 88 Chattanooga, TN RETURN SERVICE REQUESTED We are on the web continued from page 1 Pastor Threlkeld reports that on Grand Opening Sunday April 29, 2012, after all the preparation, “We nervously awaited the arrival of the crowd, not really knowing what to expect, while trusting God for the increase. We were amazed as 118 people filed in. There was a sweet spirit in the services as the Good News Trio from Virginia and a temporary choir led by missionary Mark Liedtke (BIMI to Belize) ministered in music. Jeremy Rowland presented the need for church planting in America followed by a message from Dr. Jeff Amsbaugh, pastor of the Grace Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia. BIMI's Reseeding America Assistant Director, Brother Bob Larson gave the charge to the new church and I was privileged to preach the main message entitled Glory in the Church from the third chapter of Ephesians. At the end of the day, we were pleased to baptize a husband and wife, Brian and Melissa. Forty-four returned for the evening service.” Pastor Threlkeld adds, “The Grand Opening was the culmination of numerous activities, but it is only the beginning for New Haven Baptist Church. We believe that God can accomplish much through a people that are fully dedicated to serving Him. We are so thankful to BIMI and our director, Dr. John Bailes for all his godly guidance to South Haven Baptist Church and Pastor Gagliano, our supporting churches, and everyone that has prayed for us over the past year. We love you all and we desire your prayers as we move forward for the cause of Christ in Summerville, Georgia.”
