The newest missionaries at TMC are Bill and Judy Touchton who came to us from Orlando, FL where Bill worked in secular business as a Purchasing Manager for one company and Sales Manager for another. Judy was the Financial Secretary/Bookkeeper for Delaney Street Baptist Church. Bill and Judy actually grew up in Valdosta, but had no plans to return until God got hold of their hearts and convinced them otherwise.
It wasn’t long after they learned about the work of The Mailbox Club that both Bill and Judy realized this was exactly the type of ministry they had been praying about joining for several years. TMC’s ministry to the children of the world was what attracted them most, as they both had worked with children for many years in their home church in Orlando. There they served as Sunday School teachers, Vacation Bible School workers and short term missionaries to the country of Wales, where they worked in an inner city Vacation Bible School.
God worked out many details in Bill and Judy’s life which allowed and even encouraged them to move back to Valdosta and join The Mailbox Club in 2007. Bill’s main job at TMC is that of Office Manager, but as you might expect in a small office, Bill wears many hats. Beside the day-to-day oversight of the office, Bill serves as Human Resources Manager, Purchasing Agent, Building Maintenance Supervisor and Volunteer Coordinator. In addition, Bill and Judy have developed a festival ministry, with the help of many volunteers, which reaches out to the surrounding area to inform folks about the work of TMC and to sign up new Mailbox Club students. This ministry is consistently growing and developing and has become an exciting and enjoyable way to share Jesus with others.
Judy’s work, in addition to the festival ministry, includes a variety of tasks involved in our Discipleship Center, also known as our Lesson Department. These tasks include updating our prospect and student data bases, grading lessons, mentoring students, praying for student prayer requests and processing lesson mailings. She also assists with the training and coordination of our many volunteers.
We rely on God’s care and provision and the prayers and support of Christian friends for us to be able to serve the Lord in this way. We thank God daily for all those who do help us in these ways. Please pray for God’s continued provision as we seek to serve Him in this way.
