March 5 // Calvin and janet bobo
Calvin Bobo primarily serves the Lord as a Christian husband and father. Secondarily, he has served Him in ministry roles including pastor, missionary, and theological educator. I count it a joy and a privilege to be called to the gospel ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. Janet is his devoted wife of 27 years. Calvin, Janet, and theirthirteen-year-old son, Adam, reside in Andrews, North Carolina, where Calvin serves as pastor of Andrews First Baptist Church. As a family, they worship and serve the Lord most often as a closely-knit team.
Janet is a wonderfully capable wife, mother, and homemaker. She is heartily engaged in the life of their church. She teaches a Ladies Sunday School class, sings in both our Praise Team and our Sanctuary Choir, and serves as their Women's Ministries Director, among other areas of ministry. She has a missionary heart and compassion for all.
Adam is active in our Youth Group at church, and occasionally plays his guitar in worship services. He stays busy with schoolwork, the JV football team, and the shooting team. He brings a lot of joy to us as we seek to bring him up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
They each find great satisfaction in investing our training and experience into the lives of other servants of the Lord. They pray that they will be used by God to be a blessing to us!
MARCH 12 // Diane smith
Diane Smith is a resident of Duncan, S.C. She attends Friendship Baptist Church in Lyman. At the early age of eight years old, Diane asked Jesus Christ into her heart and was baptized. It was, however, forty-five years later, at the age of 53 that she felt God's call to start a ministry that would assist those in active drug addiction in finding the road to recovery. The calling on Diane's life came after she passionately prayed for God to lead her in helping her son, Travis Fowler, to conquer his addictions. Diane's testimony is a perfect example of how God uses ordinary people to bring about extraordinary results when they follow the lead of the Holy Spirit of God.
MARCH 19 // Phyllis McMinn
While serving as a pastor's wife at South Main Baptist Church in Greenwood, South Carolina, Phyllis McMinn Brewer suddenly found herself wading through a season of life as a widow and a single mom with four children. But the brokenness of life that she faced at the loss of her beloved husband is not the end of her story. Instead it was simply the beginning of a new chapter of a much bigger story. Phyllis' life now speaks of the treasure of knowing God personally and experiencing his amazing grace, love and sufficiency through life darkest and brightest moments. She has learned first hand that God brings triumph from tragedy, abundance from emptiness, overflowing joy from depths of sorrow, and rays of sunshine from the midst of overwhelming darkness. Phyllis' desire if for people to know and understand that God is enough.
