She was able to go back to church for the first time since the first episode on May 8 and was thrilled to be [...]

Orlando and Debbie Collazo – Lorain, OH

The Lord has been doing many different things at Fellowship Baptist Church in Lorain, Ohio.  We have had the opportunity to reach out to our community in diverse ways.  One way is through our “open gym” nights where approximately 15-20 local teens and college students come, play basketball, and listen to the teaching of the Word and the Gospel.  We have so far had 3 individuals entrust their lives to God through this ministry.  Please keep praying for the many that come and hear about Christ but have not yet entrusted their lives to Jesus our Lord. Another community outreach has been visiting the local shelter and taking food and [...]

Fran Cupples – Fullerton, NE

The Many Hats of Fran Cupples - In 1994 Fran Goodspeed lived in Omaha, NE, with her youngest son. At  Whispering Cedars Baptist Camp lived director and widower Roy Cupples.

Meet Rob and Mishael Martinez – missionary appointees to Albany, NY

We are Robert and Mishael Martinez. We were just approved as church planters during the March Council meetings.

We then will begin the process of holding strategic Bible studies and discipleship meetings, as well as  conducting vision and interest meetings in the city. Please pray for our church, Adirondack Baptist Church, as we begin the process [...]

Brad and Marie Hansen – Bussey, IA

“God...hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” By the grace of God, a handful of believers planted a church in Bussey several years ago. Brad and Marie Hansen praise God for all He has done to show the people His glory. He provided partners in prayer, cash to buy property, and Baptist Church Planters to assist. Then ChurchCare Construction built Community Regular Baptist Church with the help of many volunteers. The community watched as God provided, and the church building was finished in about six months. Many accounts could be told of His faithfulness and provision. We have seen several come to a saving knowledge of Christ. Pastor [...]

Wayne and Shanna Dale – Scottsdale, AZ

The people at Grace Baptist Church have faced some great challenges, but they also have seen God work in greater ways.  In 2015 they were without a pastor, meeting in a building that held 60 people, and were down to about 12 members.  Yet God was not finished with them.  Through past discussions with a real estate agent, and the help of deacon Michael Ronning, the group engaged in a transaction of faith and sold their present building and property to a developer, and moved 4 miles to a new church property that seated over 200.  This new property included over 11,000 sf with 2 buildings.  The prior church people [...]

Carlos, Issa and daughter, Rebecca - taken in August of 2016. According to recent statistics, over 56 million Hispanics live in the U.S. That’s more than the entire population of Central America (that’s 7 countries.) In fact, the Hispanic population surpassed the Anglo population in California in 2014. It’s undeniable – the mission field has certainly come to America! One part of that vast mission field is in Hayward, CA where BCP missionaries, Carlos and Issa Vasquez, serve in the ministry of Iglesia Bíblica la Roca – Bautista Independiente. This church plant presently meets on Sunday afternoons in the facilities of an English-speaking church, Fairway Park Baptist Church in Hayward. [...]

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 [...]
