2020 Vision! As 2019 came to a close, we started feeling like punch-drunk boxers against the ropes - so many people with so many problems!  Our attendances have plummeted but providing solutions to problems is why God has called us to Estonia!

Souls saved, baptism, new members added unto the church.  This is what has highlighted the Westside Baptist Church in 2019.  We started off 2019 with several families leaving us and discouragement in the church.  I am reminded that the church is the Lord's not mine.  Our theme was "God is Faithful" and we strived as a church to just be faithful and let God build His church.

Many have asked how we are doing as news of the Australian fires has spread.  Thank you for your care and your prayers.  So far, we are safe as the Lord allows it.  But the present fire situation in Australia has no equal in history.  Four million hectares have burned.  More than 500 fires are burning across the continent (which is almost the same size as America) in Australia's 6 states and 2 territories.  On January 4, the Sydney suburb of Penrith was the hottest place on earth at 120 degrees F!

This past Sunday evening during our annual missions conference, the Grace Bible Baptist Church voted unanimously to oversee a new Swahili translation of the Bible!  This decision was not made lightly and came about after many years of prayer.  However, the answer to the prayer came in a way that I was not expecting.

Since arriving on the mission field over 20 years ago, I have considered our ministry to be Christian Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training.  I spend much time teaching and preaching on things like holiness, separation, surrender, service, soul winning and missions.  It is important to me that when our people move on to other churches they will be soldiers of the corss and not sorry do nothings!  To continue reading the update from David Lewis, please click on the link below.

Hello from Brazil.  We are hoping you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a good start to another year. I smile as I think back to all that God has done this year.  God has kept us in Brazil, when humanly speaking it looked impossible.  He gave us the help of different people along the way who came at just the "right" time.

It is hard to believe that this year is almost over!  My dad told me when I was a boy, "The older you get, the more time flies."  He was right. We had a wonderful fall.  Our meetings took us to Pennsylvania, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin, Texas, and New Mexico.

Our Fall flury of meetings continued with Pastor Rick Bickelhaupt at Grace Baptist Church in Oak Harbor, OH.  It was a joy to fellowship with the Bickelhaupts and see the Lord's blessings on their ministry.  Were we ever surprised when our Mt. Zion group, on their way to Fairhaven's Annual Empowered Youth, showed up at the very same church Sunday evening!  To continue the update from Randy Starr, please click the link below.

After eleven months of weekly Saturday AM Bible Club meetings at K'na village, God has blessed the efforts of His people in this unreached village.  Just last week, the first soul was saved, a twelve-year-old girl named Voleak.  She was eager to finish the salvation lessons and happily trusted Christ as her Saviour.  With great anticipation, she told Mari-lyn.  "I want to believe on Christ now!"  Pray with us that God would plant a substantial work in that village.

Aren't you glad that God is in charge of the events of this world?  I take comfort in the fact that only God knows what is going to happen and is powerful enough to accomplish His will.  I don't understand it all; but I trust an omniscient God that does.  I am thankful for God sending His Son to be the Savior of the world.
