Missionary Update – August 14

Tom and Carol Phillips – Apollos missionaries living in Fredericksburg, VA Friday, August 11, 2017 This letter is to report on the last trip to Chuuk.  There were several task that needed to be accomplished and it is good to report that they all were, well one project is still waiting for an additional part. Pastor Mike was in need of a computer for the church to use for writing and projecting Chuukese songs on the wall for the Chuukese service.  This would call for a projector and a screen instead of projecting on the wall.  Time was needed to work with Joseph in the programming of the computer for [...]

Miguel and Ana Maria Quintana – missionary highlight

Miguel and Ana, both from Colombia, South America, faithfully served in ministry for over 20 years in several Latin American countries before coming to the United States. While planting a church in Waterloo, Iowa, Miguel and Ana realized they needed to partner with a mission agency, so in 2000 they attended Baptist Church Planters’ candidate school and became official missionaries. They faithfully built up the body of believers in Waterloo and are now presently serving at another church plant, Iglesia Bautista Hispana in Seminole, FL (meeting at Starkey Road Baptist Church.) This past year, the Quintanas rejoiced to see these blessings: 1) Their Hispanic group meets in a small church [...]

Meet Tim and Susan Heinrich in CA

John 14:1-3 says, “Let not your heart be troubled...In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” This Christmas, Crossroads Baptist Church in Tracy, CA, had a special program where each family brought a presentation of part of the Christmas story. There were readings, drama, music and multimedia presentations. As the program drew to a close, we began to see that God had orchestrated it all, [...]

Missionary highlight – Blane and Kelly Barfknecht

Chalco Hills Baptist Church started in 2009 with less than 20 people in regular attendance. On August 21st we experienced our highest attended service that was not a special event with 52 people on a Sunday morning! Several new families have become a regular part of our ministry just over this summer. Please pray they would continue to attend and become plugged into ministry. One of the new families started coming after a young couple invited them to Vacation Bible School.  They had never been a part of a church before.  After meeting our people and hearing the teaching of the Bible, the husband began listening to our sermons online [...]
