31. Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32. (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
August was one very busy but very productive month. It’s been one year since Gulf Coast Baptist Church commissioned us and sent us out as missionaries to Costa Rica. God has proved Himself more than sufficient time and time again in miraculous ways. We are currently at 72% of our needed monthly support and have commitments from several more churches and individuals. We have set aside the funds that we need for moving-at least the funds we know about. We have had every single need met for housing, finances, health, and fellowship. God as He promised has met all our needs and then some as we have not received a paycheck from our business, McCoy Construction Services, since December 2018.
Missionary support comes in many forms. We have been eye witnesses and experienced these things personally this year more than ever before. We did none of these things in our own strength or power. To God be all the glory and praise.
- our house without a realtor

- two work trailers, shed, mountain of tools
- majority of furniture & house hold items
- rock crawler Big Whitey.
That’s a lot folks!!! Most of these were sold to brethren in our home church. We know for a fact God’s people are praying and we know for a fact God’s people are giving. Giving is not always money. We get help with our newsletter every month. We get taken to dinner. We have people watch our kids. We have people help us pack every time we move to a different temporary house. We are in our second temporary house. Thank God for these two families for that type of giving. We have people repair our car when the tire separates or the water pump goes out. We truly thank God and every single one of you that does anything to help us in this process.
Our hope is to be headed to Costa Rica full time by February 2020. In August we were in 10 different churches. Had the privilege to present the ministry 4 times and give an update to supporting churches 2 times. Our kids and grandkids got to go to VBS together at Fishermen Baptist Church in Bon Secor, AL. That was a real blessing. We got to visit Sonya’s parents, siblings and our older son in Indiana while there for 2 meetings. We had the privilege to go to family camp at The Wilds Christian Camp in NC and attend their 50th year anniversary services. A big thanks to the maintenance guys Steve Lawton and Matt McCoy for changing the water pump on our car. We got to meet Quinton & Melaine Hutton in person, missionaries to the Cebecar Indians in Costa Rica. We will help them at times with projects like building a literal bridge to the unreached there. Last but not least God sold Big Whitey, our 05 Jeep Wrangler rock crawler that me and the kids put a 6.0 Chevy truck motor in. It’s bittersweet as we used this jeep in our ministry Got Jesus Off-road. There are many unreached people groups right here in the states, jeepers, bikers, hunters, fishermen, golfers, you get the idea. Selling this jeep was huge in our process and we thank God for it.
Thank you all for your support in all areas. Without God’s help and yours we won’t accomplish much in His kingdoms work.
