When Melva Smith first became a disciple of Christ 23 years ago in Springfield, Massachusetts, she had no idea what life might hold for her. She only knew that she needed Christ and wanted to follow him forever. Melva was inspired by the change she witnessed in her sister, Claudette, who had been baptized not long before her. Naturally, as a married woman with two pre-teens, Melva began her spiritual journey full of faith and hope that her children would be inspired by her own example and would soon follow her as she followed Christ. Without a partner in the faith at home, Melva valiantly fought alone to teach her children the word of God, faithfully bringing them to church with her at every opportunity.
How can we be excellent at work and for the Lord? This struggle, to find the balance, is a challenge for many disciples in churches across the world. But as God has shown us through the lives of many of the great cloud of witnesses, men such as Daniel, Nehemiah, and Joseph have achieved high levels of success in the world as well as in God's kingdom.

Tremayne Parker, known as Parker, confessed that Jesus is Lord and was baptized on October 8. Parker is an Alabama native from the town of Union Springs. He works as a correctional officer for the Bullock County Prison. A year ago, Parker met Markeya Thomas through mutual friends at a birthday party, and she invited him to church. He wanted to be a better person and to find a group of friends who lived an honest life. He found this in the brothers at the Auburn Tuskegee Christian Church (ATCC). One of them, Travis Hawkins, asked him to study the Bible. Travis shared not only the good news, but also his life.
"I was inspired by Parker's humility and his desire to take on challenges for God," said Travis. Parker continued to take on the challenges of obeying the Bible, right up to the challenge of being baptized. "Parker has grown tremendously since the first time meeting the ATCC family," said Markeya. "He's gone from barely saying a word to being a lot more engaged." Parker is now excited to become even more engaged, and share the good news with others in Alabama!
