Missionary update – June 13

Wayne and Donna Hart – councilman and wife pastoring in West Clarksville, NY Tuesday, June 12 From Sunday morning until last evening, Donna had gone about 40 hours of breathing on her own. This was a great step forward! During the evening, due to exhaustion from not sleeping well the last two days, the doctor made the decision to put Donna back on ventilator support. This has allowed her to get some rest as she continues to get stronger. Please pray for Donna as she continues to rest, and pray for Wayne and the family as options are evaluated regarding Donna’s care for the future. Wayne and Shanna Dale – [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
