Hathcocks’ prayer update excerpts

Greetings from Springfield.

We were encouraged by the Lord this week. Darrel had a great trip to New Orleans with many divine appointments. I am in awe of God when I think about the people that he brings into our lives and the opportunity we have to share Christ with them. Darrel was also encouraged by the men who have been faithful to share the gospel year after year like our friend Frank. He is around 80 years old and has a unique gift of recognizing which country people are from, and he also has tracts in so many different languages. He is faithful to continue to talk with people and share the good news.

We are thankful for how God is providing for Arianna’s future studies at the University. We found out that she is a National Merit Scholar finalist and will receive a scholarship. She told us earlier that if God wanted her to go to Dallas Baptist University that He would provide. We are blessed by God’s provision and her faith.

We were also blessed to participate in an amazing discipleship conference which was such an encouragement to us and a reminder to go and make disciples. We are thankful for more tools and practical information about helping churches make disciples and how faithfulness to this task can have a great impact in reaching the lost. We were also blessed by how God through our church family blessed our children while we were gone. We are thankful! Yeah, God!

Please pray:

  • The seeds planted during Mardi Gras would bear fruit in the lives of those who heard and received the truth. The Holy Spirit would convict their hearts to obey what God has shown them.
  • We would be attentive and obedient to the things that God reveals to us. We would see who God wants us to invest our lives in while we are here in Springfield.
  • Churches and pastors would catch a glimpse of the things that God can do through a disciple-making church. They would commit themselves to making disciples.
  • Many of the students we know are struggling with the question, “What is God’s will for my life?” Pray that they would keep their eyes on Him and that they would see the next step and walk in obedience. God would give them peace. 
  • Wisdom for my doctor as I go for a physical and investigate some lingering issues with my back. I am trusting God to show us the best thing to do.

Thank you so much for your prayers!

One of God’s servants,
