Friends and family,
I’m sorry for not being more diligent in keeping you informed of the progress with Mountainview Church. We have not given up or changed directions or become discouraged! We are waiting! And it’s very hard! I know God is working and moving behind the scenes and is preparing us spiritually for what is to come and we are trying our best to be patient and wait on Him. We know it will do us no good to get ahead of Him and so we are trying to learn from these sometimes difficult experiences. I wish things would progress faster, but I know His plan is perfect and there is a reason for the timing as it is.
As you know we would like to sell our home and get moved into the area before we begin trying to nail down a meeting place and begin meeting, but that is taking longer than expected due to the current market conditions. We do have a contract, but it is contingent on the selling of their house in Tallahassee, so please pray that all will work out soon. We are so looking forward to getting started.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support and please continue to lift us up in your prayers daily, praying that we will be sensitive to God’s will and that He will bring together the right group of individuals to help us move forward and carry out His perfect plan so that in the end He might be glorified.
I’d also like to invite you to Mt. Signal Baptist Church, located on Old Highway 280 in Chelsea, for a “Give It All Away” revival with all offerings going to the new Mountainview Church. Brother Kevin Hamm, Pastor of Gardendale Baptist Church along with Mark Harrison and Nelson Hannah, also of Gardendale, will be the guest speakers. The time will be 7:00 P.M. on September the 30th, October 1st and 2nd. Please make plans to attend and be praying that souls will be saved and that God will be glorified. I want to say a special, heartfelt thank you to Brother Leonard Irvin and Mt. Signal Baptist Church for all their hard work, support, encouragement, and prayers and may God richly bless them all for their efforts.
Pastor Grady Covin
