I’ve visited several pastors in each of our local associations in the last few months. I believe that I can safely say that we all are praying and looking for God to do some great things here in Oklahoma. Jesus said, “The field is white unto the harvest but the laborers are few. Pray ye the Lord of the Harvest that He will send forth laborers unto the harvest. We need to remember that He is in charge of bringing the laborers. Our job is to pray and then be there to support and work with those that God brings to the work. We’ve got to keep on praying! I’ve revised our missionary application and I’ve had one already request one. Be in pray for this young man. I’ve been told of others that are thinking and praying about helping plant churches in Oklahoma. Be in prayer that God will bring those who He desires.
I visited with Bro. Doug Brewer last week and he showed me an area of the Oklahoma City Metroplex that is growing at a great rate of speed. It is an area that we need to pray about.
If you haven’t already looked at our new website, bmao.org, then you need to do so. Bro. Carl Barnes has done a great job of putting it together. Several folks have already contacted him with changes that need to be made about times, telephone numbers and the people who hold different offices in their churches. It’s a great way to get your church name out on the internet. A lot of those new folks moving to your area, don’t use the telephone book to find your church, they use the internet. Make sure that they’ve got the right information.
