Missionary Update – May 23, 2018

The following is from Caring Bridge for Donna Hart, wife of Wayne Hart, current BCP Councilman. Wayne is the pastor of West Clarksville Baptist Church in Boliver, NY. The doctor came in this morning and said that Donna did great with her exercises yesterday. Donna spent about 6-7 hours in a chair yesterday, focusing on her breathing and building up her strength. Donna has been able to listen to some audio books while going through the breathing exercises. After moving back to her bed last night, Donna rested well through the night. This morning, they are already back to work on weening Donna off the ventilator. The doctor told Donna, [...]

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 are currently finishing our ministry responsibilities at our home church in Gloversville, NY. We plan to officially relocate to Albany, NY, this coming August to begin the ground work of planting City Rise Baptist Church. The plan is to continue deputation for about a year’s time  while also getting connected into the community. 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 and Issa Vasquez – Hayward, CA

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 [...]

Ron and Sandy Cornell – missionary builders

“God led me very specifically into the electrical field so when I retired I could serve Him with my electrical abilities at Baptist Missionary Builders and now with Baptist Church Planters in helping to build churches.” Ron and Sandy Cornell bring expertise and experience to this ministry where they have served faithfully and joyfully for ten years after retiring from a successful thirty-year career as a maintenance engineer in the Nuclear industry. Brent and Michele Howard shared, "We have been blessed to be able to work with Ron and Sandy 9 of the 10 years that we have been builders.  We were appointed as missionaries at the same meeting and [...]
