I am in South Texas for the month of January going on the Light for the Lost tour of the district. I had the privilege of attending Sunday School and morning service at Humble First Assembly of God yesterday, missions emphasis Sunday. Pastor Milton Pool has such a great missions heart. When all the necessary preliminaries were over, we partook of communion, saw a special missions video, and listened to interviews with church members who had gone on missions trips, Pastor Pool only had 5 minutes left to preach a missions message. And he gave me 2 of those 5 minutes to thank the Church for their faithful support, and give an encouraging report on how God is providing healing for Raynan as a result of prayer.
When the economy got tough and the missions offerings did not come in, Pastor Pool took the money from the general fund to make sure that the missionaries did not come up short on their support. God has honored his faith, and they are once again “in the black”, doing more for missions than ever. Praise God for pastors like Milton Pool and churches like Humble First Assembly!
