In Her Own Words...
Hello Pastor,United Kingdom Statistics:
My name is Charlotte Mathews. I am a Missionary with Macedonia World Baptist Missions, sent out of Liberty Baptist Church in Stockbridge, Georgia to the United Kingdom.
I had the great privilege of growing up in a Christian home and I accepted Christ as my personal Saviour when I was twelve years old. A year later, I surrendered my life to Full‐Time Christian Service and became involved in the ministry of my local Church.
It was during this time that I went on my first Mission Trip with my Church Youth Group. This trip planted a burden in my heart that continued to grow throughout the years, and in 2002, during another Youth Mission Trip, the Lord began leading me to the United Kingdom as a Missionary.
After completing a Bachelor's Degree in Theology with Proficiencies in Missions and Music Education, and a Master's Degree in Religious Education (both from Atlanta Baptist College), the Lord allowed me the opportunity to take a second Mission Trip to the UK in the Summer of 2009. It was following this trip, during the annual Faith Promise Missions Conference at my home church, that the Lord granted the desire of my heart by calling me to be a Missionary to the people of the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom is a beautiful land with a rich history, but it is also a place of deep Spiritual need. With nearly 62 million people calling the UK their home, the few churches that are scattered through the UK have very little chance of truly reaching that land with the Gospel unless more people would be willing to make themselves available to God to help missionaries and church planters as they seek to tell those around them about the Saviour and to train the British people to do the same.
The Lord has called me to be a help to church planting missionaries in the areas of music, teaching, soul-winning and discipleship, as well as any other facets of ministry that the Lord would choose to use me for. I am currently on deputation and would love to have the opportunity to come to your church to present the work that God has laid on my heart. If I may be of service to you in any way, or if you would consider allowing me to be a part of your missions program please contact me at email@example.com. If you would be willing to pray for me as I am on deputation and after I reach the field, please sign up for my Prayer Update letters on my website (http://aheartforrevival.weebly.com/prayer-letters.html)
