Last week was very bitter-sweet. No, not because it was the last week of 2014. No, last week was very bitter-sweet because it was the last week that one of my best friends and I would work together in our current ministry positions.
For the past sixteen year, Clifford Suddeth and I have worked hand in hand at Mile Straight Baptist Church. Clifford served as our Executive Pastor & Youth Pastor, while I served as Worship & Children’s Pastor. He joined the staff in 1998 & I in 1999. We have served through some great times and we have served through some hard times, but through it all he has remained a great friend and a faithful servant of God.
So how could this last week of us working together be sweet? Well, I am glad you asked!
This is why – Clip, Mary & Isaac Suddeth have answer the call to “go into all the world” and become missionaries. Just how awesome is that!! They will primarily be serving in Latin & Central America.
For the past several years, Clip has had a heart for discipleship and to reach & teach those who know Christ but don’t have a full knowledge of HIM.
There is an incredible need to teach and disciple pastors, and God has given us the opportunity to be involved in His kingdom through this ministry. We are honored to serve God by serving pastors, their families, their churches, their communities, and ultimately the world.
Clifford Suddeth, II
As much as I am going to miss working with Clip and having Mary & Isaac around, I know that God has some great work for them to accomplish for HIS glory.
I am asking you to pray for them as they begin this incredible journey! To find out more information about what they are doing, you can visit www.thesuddethfamily.com.
