Connie M. Pitts and Ray Pitts, a husband-and-wife team of missionaries, have completed their new book “Deep Waters”: a well-conceived book that imparts the authors’ journey among culture and citizenship to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his love.
Connie and Ray write, “These Scriptures helped us look and go beyond the shallow and medium waters.
“‘And when He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into the deep waters and let down your nets for a catch” [and when they did this, they had caught a great number of fish]’ (Luke 5:4–6, comment mine). Also Luke 5:4, ‘Push out into the deep waters.’
“In the beginning of our ministry, we thought of the ‘colonia’ as shallow waters. It was just over the border with easy access to the United States.
“We referred to the interior ministry as ‘medium waters.’ There was much travel involved going from mission to mission, and there were dangers and unknowns.
“‘Deep waters’ referred to extending our missionary work in Mexico to a Huasteco Indian tribe, around 10 hours from the United States border in the state of San Louis Potosi, specifically the Quayalab Jungla (Mountainous Jungle). The people, another culture, and another language were very closed and had rejected all missionaries who wanted to evangelize on the mountain. But the door opened for us.
“We had opposition from many, including our home church, remembering them saying, ‘Ray and Connie, you are getting in too deep; stay in the ‘colonia.’ The church was happy with our missionary activity in the colonial.
“My book is dedicated to those who follow the Lord ‘wholeheartedly’ and to those who refuse to remain in the shallow and medium waters.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Connie M. Pitts and Ray Pitts’s new book shares a life dedicated to the Lord that reflects an unconditional and unceasing following of his will despite the challenges in life.
This book is proof of the importance of striving to reach the deeper waters to spread the faith and make it grow and nurture in grace and compassion.
Readers can purchase “Deep Waters” at bookstores everywhere or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
