Most of you know by now that I have resigned as the Director of Missions  here in the French Broad Baptist Association. I want to thank each local church, all the pastors and every member of our churches for giving me the privilege of serving you for the last two and a half years. It has been my honor to worship with you and fellowship with your Pastors. My final day at the Association will be August 11.

As Carole and I begin a new part of our journey with the Lord, we pray that the local congregations of this county will come together in one mind and one accord that God may use you to reach the lost and disciple the saved all for your good and His Glory.

We will not forget you, nor will we cease to pray for you. I would ask you to do the same for us.

May God bless you mightily each day until that day when all of God’s children gather with Him around the Throne.

To Him be all Glory, all Honor and all Praise.

Pastor Walter Ponder
