Cherokee: Seeking Jesus


For April 3, 2011


e spend the best part of our lives looking for one thing or another, and when we find it, it’s not all we thought it to be.  Many years ago on a hillside in Judea, some shepherds who had been given the good news from the angels concerning a birth, made up their minds to go and see for themselves.   Luke 2:15&16 says, “And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.  And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.” Just as the shepherds went looking for this one called Jesus, so should we today.  There is nothing that can be as rewarding to one’s life, than to go looking for Jesus, and accept Him into your life.  He is really not hard to find, He is just a Sinner’s Prayer Away.  There is an old saying, that Wise men still seek Jesus, what about you.

Cherokee: On The Mission Road



e as a body of believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior should hearken unto His words.  In the book of St. Matthew 28:19 and 20, He says, “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

After having been given a personal invitation by the minister of this small church in Brazil, I felt much like Paul when he was bid to go down to Macedonia to share the gospel.  It was at this time, that a group of young people at our church decided to form the Brazilian Outreach Team (BOT).  They decided not only to continue sending our blessings to this small church, but that we will carry our blessing by making a mission trip in July of 2011. 

Time is swiftly passing by, so we should be much in pray for the successful completion of this mission ministry.  Think for a moment what could come from the completion of this planned trip.  We could put the word of God in hands that have never had the opportunity to hold and study it.  We could share the Gospel with those who might have never heard it.  Then our own hearts can be filled with the satisfaction of going into the vineyards of our Lord to do His Good Work.  So Brothers and Sister join in and become a part of this Great Mission Opportunity.  Missions only happen, if we make them happen.

Cherokee: Brazilian Outreach Team (BOT)


herokee Chapel Holiness Methodist Church is planning a mission trip to Brazil this upcoming summer.

The purpose of the trip is to spread the Gospel of Jesus, to assist in the building of a Church and other activities to be determined at a later date.  The Brazilian people are excited about the Word of Christ.

Pastor Jimmy Locklear has been in contact with the Pastor of the Brazilian Church.  The Brazilian Minister will meet Preacher Jimmy Locklear at the airport in Brazil.

Pastor Jimmy Locklear is scheduled to depart Charlotte, NC, on 3/15/11 and return 1 week later.  He will be speaking at a Church Conference in Fortaleza, Brazil, on 3/19/11.  In addition to speaking at the Conference, the Pastor will also be laying the ground work for the mission trip this summer. 

Cherokee Chapel Holiness Methodist Church has been raising monies for the trip since July, 2010.  The Church sold food at the Rennert Parade during 4th of July weekend, 2010.  Church members have been encouraged to give $5.00/mo for 12 months.

Our biggest fund raiser thus far has been the hoagies sale that was conducted on February 18th at Cherokee Chapel Holiness Methodist Church.  In excess of $2,300.00 was raised.

The monies are to be used to purchase material and supplies for the Brazilian people.

Bro. Rocky Locklear and Sis. Misty Godwin are coordinating all fund raising activites.

In addition to the supplies and material, 100 Bibles are to be bought and given to the Brazilian Church.

After the March trip, a presentation will be given to the Conference.  We are encouraging other churches to assist in this mission effort.
