June Mission Teams

Greetings from Las Vegas! The work of Redemption continues as we are building relationships with individuals and families here in the city.

We have two mission teams coming to assist in the work of Redemption Baptist here in Las Vegas the later part of this month. We have a team coming from Longview Point Baptist Church from Hernando, MS and a team from Crosspointe Baptist Church from Millington, TN.

Please pray for these teams as they move through neighborhoods praying and conducting surveys. Pray that they would encounter "Families of Peace" who would be willing to participate in or host a home Bible study in the coming days.

We are grateful for their willingness to come and serve in the work here with us in these exciting days!

Serving Him,
Neal and Barry

March Mission Teams Update

Redemption was blessed to have two mission teams with us in March to assist us with our ongoing effort to identify individuals and households that may have an interest in establishing home Bible studies leading to house churches.

We had teams from Jones County Junior College Baptist Student Union and Hernando Baptist Church Student Ministry Team.

These two teams were able to knock on 1,197 doors and through this contacts we were able to identify 41 individuals our households that would like more information about starting a bible study in their homes.

Neal and Barry will begin follow-up with the 41 in the coming days. Please pray that we will be able to connect with those that God is calling out to be a part of the Redemption Baptist Network of house churches.

Spring Break Mission Teams

We are excited to have a mission team from the Baptist Student Union at Jones County Junior College (Ellisville, MS) and a team from Hernando Baptist Church (Hernando, MS) in Las Vegas with us this week.

These spring break missionaries, totaling 24 in number, will be assisting us in surveying a community in Spring Valley near Southern Summerlin. They will also be joining in ministry projects with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission as well as Broken Chains, a ministry with the homeless here in LV.

We pray that these efforts will honor God and offer us opportunities to connect with the hurting and lost people of the city.

Please pray for all that these teams will be a part of this week!

Praying and Meeting

We have been praying for the days that we are now living in....we are connecting with the community around us and seeking for additional ways to begin building relationships. Neal and Barry are seeking to secure jobs to supplement income through substitute teaching positions in both public and private schools as well as some retail opportunities.

We have met with some of our core group individuals and further cast the vision for what is in store with Redemption in the coming days. We have established a transitional stewardship team to oversee the finances of Redemption.

We are looking forward to having our initial Bible study on February 13(updated date) as we get underway. We may be starting a second group within the month.

Continue to pray for Neal and Barry as they seek to communicate the vision and strategy for Redemption. They will be participating in an evangelism workshop on February 9 and the missions conference "Hope for the World" at the end of the month at Hope Baptist Church.

A word of praise - The Tweedys have a renter in their home in Hernando for at least a year. A major answer to prayer!

If you have an interest in being a part of our prayer network, please sign-up here on our blog or call Barry at 702.306.7524.

End of Week 1

Well, we are at the end of one week and almost have everything in place in the house. We have new bank accounts, but still have much to do with job interviews, drivers licenses, car tags, smog inspections, car insurance, renters insurance....whew, but all is well! We are so thankful to a Mighty God for His call and His provision. Excited to see all that He is going to do in the coming days.
