Newsletter

 June 28, 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thank you for your continued support and for all the prayers! We continue to be busy with traveling and meetings. Since the last newsletter, we have been to several states, and have been in Spirit filled meetings. Praising GOD, this year alone we have seen at least 30 people make professions of faith. By God’s grace we have been able to help knock on doors with several churches. We are still praying for revival. Looking forward to meetings and when God decides to show up and show off. It is exciting to be a part of HIS plan. Each of our needs have been met. I am thankful to be a part of God’s plan.
We will be in Maine for about 7 weeks, helping to plant 2 churches in the state. We have been busy this week knocking on doors, handing flyers out for the tent meetings, and new churches. We have seen several people have a little excitement about what is going to happen in their community. We are looking forward to helping with Vacation Bible Schools later this summer as well.
In May, before leaving NC, we blew the head gasket on the van. God has supplied all the needs, and hopefully next week, we will have the new motor and transmission in and the van going again. As we pulled into the first church in NY for the year, our brakes went out on the motor home and thankfully it has also been fixed. The cost of those repairs was about $450.00. 
We are still in need of a newer motor home, with a diesel engine, and an enclosed trailer to be able to haul the tent and ministry items. We have a special prayer request for something for about the end of August/beginning of September. Pray that God will touch hearts, and God will give the increase.
We have some openings if you could use us in a tent revival, revival meeting, conference, or special service for the year, please let me know. We will be in the following areas: June/July/August-ME, and NY; September-TX, WV; October-NC, AR, and MS; November-AL, and FL. Please let me know if you’re interested.

Because of Christ,

Evangelist Gary Hawkins

Dear Praying Friends,

It’s with heavy heart today as we write this. We need urgent prayer. In our last newsletter, we said our van was being fixed. However, it is not the case. We are in a dilemma. We put in a motor and transmission, and when we got it back, the motor would still get hot. We believe that the head gaskets blew. Now, we still owe $900.00 on this vehicle. We are just praying and seeking God’s will. There is a van here that we could have for $2,200. This is 2 years newer than ours. We need prayers, but especially we need money at this time. We have a mechanic that has done over $1,500.00 work for free, but says he needs some money to fix the next problem because he has spent a lot of hours and his job has been forsaken. The parts and labor is estimated to be $2,000.00. We are asking all churches, pastors, friends to help us get this need met. We have been without our own vehicle for over 2 months. God has supplied, but we need our vehicle back. There’s lower milage and the transmission is in better shape than the old one. If you’re interested in sending a check please send it to Jeremy Raymond, 2385 Dexter Rd, Dover-Foxcroft, ME 04426. Any questions, please call me at 336-624-6406.

Because of Christ,
