Sharing 20schemes with Musella Baptist Church

We had a really rough week last week (we'll probably share more on that later), and this week started off bumpy, as well. But God has a way of bringing encouragement at just the right time.

On Monday, we received an invitation to share the ministry of 20schemes with Musella Baptist Church here in Georgia. The pastor, Joe McDaniel, and his wife, Cynthia, are friends from many years ago and graciously invited us to join their church family for one of the best South-in-your-mouth Wednesday night suppers you've ever seen, followed by a sweet time of prayer and digging into the Word.

Jeff was able to not only share what schemes are and what the goal of 20schemes is, but he also shared about the schemes of Satan to deceive, divide, and dissuade -- as well as the remedies God provides through devotion to Christ, denial of self, and discernment in life. While the work of planting churches in the schemes of Scotland may look a little different from church planting in the states, the message remains the same: Satan is the destroyer, but Jesus is the Savior.

This is one of the best parts of our role with 20schemes -- sharing the gospel of Christ and the ministry of 20schemes with our fellow believers in the local church and seeing them get excited right along with us. May the Lord raise up many partners to invest in His Kingdom work in the schemes of Scotland.

By the way, we are continually updating our schedule; be sure to check it out and contact us about speaking at your church or at an in-home fellowship. And if you'd like to receive our monthly newsletter, you may subscribe here

  1. It was such a joy and pleasure to meet your family yesterday! It is so encouraging to see people living out the Great Commission no matter the cost. My husband and I are praying for the Jackson family and the ministry of 20 Schemes. We look forward to seeing what God continues to do through this ministry!
