      We sold our house and most of our personal possessions in order to buy the motorhome (MH) for this work.  We have lived in the MH since 4-10-08.  Please see our work plan on the "Home" page for further explanation.   Home 

      I left full-time preaching (4-2-2010) in order to go into this work (MUSA) full-time.
 
Resume of 2008:

Perry Sexton                               

Born: July 30, 1952  

       I married Sandy Bryant October 5, 1973.  We both obeyed the gospel in 1974.  She is a faithful helpmeet in the work of the Lord.  She has taught children's Bible classes, had personal studies with women, assisted in home Bible studies, taken care of our BCC students, proofed many articles, prepared the material for this present work, etc.  We have two daughters: Tammy married Michael Knox of Stanton, Ky.; Amantha married Peter Ray Cole of Fairmont, W.Va.  Both son-in-laws are gospel preachers.                                                                                                     

       I first thought of this mission work while at the Memphis School of Preaching, but at that time I did not have the experience, but now I am prepared for this work having preached full-time since 1987.  I decided to start preaching in order to help out small congregations and I have always preached for small congregations and have evangelized in adjacent towns without the church.  The work has been hard in many cases and has helped to prepare us mentally to "Go" into this work.
