The Boots – November 2020

This is the time of year when we focus particularly on the goodness of God, and this year we have a lot to be thankful for.  During the first four or five months of the pandemic, we saw very little movement.  We had several families that were at higher risk who decided to stay away from the crowds and have still not been able to come back to church.  To continue reading the update from Steve Boots, please click on the link below.

The historic and challenging time in the ministry of Paul illustrates the lives of so many missionaries around the world, especially in these exciting and challenging times.  Your continued prayers are needed for the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit...for when and where to go, when and where not to go, and the faith and patience to discern the difference.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our faithful and praying friends!  With all of the uncertainties of these "last days" of apostasy, worldwide pandemic, and natural disasters, we can be certain that God is still on the throne!  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click on the link below.

What an exciting time to be alive! 2020 is constantly getting picked on, however, I believe this year demonstrated more than ever the eminent return of Christ. I think we are on the doorstep of the Rapture! To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click the link below. The Dunbars - November 2020

Well what a crazy past two months it has been here in Victoria. I will speak more about that under the Australian Highlights section, also our furlough plans under the Family Section. It is November and we are slowly coming out of stage 4.5 lockdown.  To continue reading the update from Chris Eckels, please click the link below. The Eckels - October 2020

Hello from your Christian friends in this part of the world.  We hope that this letter reaches you in the best of physical and spiritual health.  This whole year has been a great challenge, but we are glad that we have a big God whose grace has truly been sufficient.

By the end of September we were not allowed to meet as a church for 5 1/2 of the previous 7 months.  We were grateful to meet as a church during the 6 weeks reprieve at the end of the summer (though a very stiff lockdown has since been reenacted).  We are also grateful that YouTube, as liberal as it is, has faithfully carried our message at no cost to the congregation.

How it thrills the heart of the father when his children do right and serve the Lord.  I have had the joy to see my older son Joshua surrender his life to the Lord when he was 15 years old, then to watch him help in the junior church and teen department.  Eventually he became the associate pastor at Wyldewood Baptist Church for eight years, and last fall Josh joined the Couriers for Christ ministry.

What a year!  In June, I returned to Seoul after a year of furlough.  It was wonderful visiting many of the faithful churches that have partnered with us through the years as we have tried to reach Korean people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to establish independent Baptist churches.  We praise God that we were also able to visit many new churches and share with them our burden and vision.  To continue reading the update from Robert Oetman, please click on the link below.

It was quite a task, but Becky and I managed to jump through all the hoops, including fourteen days of quarantine, to re-enter Cambodia!  We were let out into the public on August 21st.  Since then, we have been extremely busy in every aspect of the ministry we have here.

Jesus stood on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and exhorted Peter, when I've gone back to heaven, don't forget to feed my sheep.  God wants His sheep to be nourished with the Word of God.  Again, on the Mount of Olives, Jesus said as the final point of His Commission, "Teach them in all things whatsoever I have commanded you." As God has given us the oversight of His church, we must teach them God's timeless truths as the unchanging Word of God is the foundation of faith and practice.  May God bless the hearing and the heeding of [...]

Monsoons are large-scale sea breezes which occur when the temperature on land is significantly warmer or cooler than the temperature of the ocean.  The Summer Monsoon Season brings heavy rain and typically ends in October.  We had three weeks of heavy rain, but we certainly need it and are very thankful for it because this has already increased the Manila water reservoirs needed for coming months.  To continue reading the update from Bill Hardecker, please click on the link below.

While bearing and sowing precious Gospel seed last week in Ulladulla, it was hard to know whether rejections were spiritual or Covid-related.  We thank the Lord for several good contacts that were made, and for the sowing of seed that was accomplished.  God is able to turn hearts, calm fears, and bring people to Himself in any and all circumstances!

We certainly have not had a furlough quite like this one before.  In spite of the Covid 19 pandemic and the general chaos in the world today our furlough has probably been one of the best that we have ever had.  There were disruptions to our schedule and some different unique types of services, but in spite of it all we found a healthy, if not thriving atmosphere, in almost every church that we visited.  The general concern for missions and the specific burden for what God is doing in Kenya and the Regions Beyond was evident.  To continue reading the [...]
