Whiteville, North Carolina


Victory Baptist Church

February 16-21, 2019

Lots of relationship had gone into our week in Whiteville, NC with Pastor Gary Ledbetter and his wife. Will and Christy have known pastor for severallllllll years now. It was a sweet reunion! We pulled into town during a crazy rainy time, so we had to dance around the mud as we unloaded and set up the trailers.

We started our week with a Sportsman Banquet for the church families. We had over 8 or 9 different meats—from chicken to rabbit to squirrel—in addition to a bunch of sides! We enjoyed an evening of eating, playing some fun competitions, and hearing a short challenge from Will.

From preservices to main services; from the teen services to the children’s program; from meals with the church to canvassing around a few schools for a dodgeball outreach…we loved the people of Whiteville. The team put on an Ultimate Dodgeball tournament on their last night in town and were excited to see a handful of guests come out from receiving flyers (!).

It was exciting and humbling being able to share the gospel to some folks who may have never heard it clearly presented if at all! Thankful for the church teens who attended; thankful for the guest teens who participated; thankful for the Lord giving us such an opportunity to have fun, fellowship, build relationships between the teens and the local church, and to just love on the people there!

Thank you, Victory Baptist Church, for allowing us to come alongside you all for a week! We are encouraged by your faithful ministry in your love for the Lord and your love for the people He has placed around you.
