We continue to stay in contact with missionaries who are serving in border countries of Ukraine.  We have two missionary families who are in two of the countries.  For the present they feel that God would have them remain where they are.  They both have an "emergency evacuation plan" in case the war spreads to their country of if their country joins the warfare.  To continue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click on the link below.

The first month of 2022 has "come and gone!"  It is unbelievable how "time flies."  I apologize for being later "reporting to you" on the ministry, but it seems the longer this pandemic goes, the more changes in ministries and the more issues or problems missionaries are facing around the world.

The past year, 2021, has been a year that has been more "different" than any year that I know of, dating back to 1969 when I left the United States to serve the Lord in Aguascalientes, Mexico.  That was 52 years ago!  On the other hand we have seen God work in "different" ways to draw people to Him,...  To continue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click the link below.

In spite of the COVID increase here in the States, and in most other countries, several families who have been in the States have now returned, or are preparing to return, to the countries where they serve.

We held our 2021 Annual Institute of Missions, June 6-11, at East Side Baptist Church, which is our "home church."  Our pastor, Finley Cutshaw, and the entire church staff and membership did an outstanding job of preparation and were a great blessing as many of our members "ministered" to the missionaries throughout the entire week.

We are finalizing the plans for our Annual Institute of Missions (AIM) which will be held in June of this year.  It had to be canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 virus.  We are expecting the largest number of families attending than we have had for several years.  There will be a mixture of veteran missionaries, missionaries on deputation, and several new families who have applied to the Mission.  To continue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click on the link below.

I want to thank you for your continued and faithful prayers as we continue to work to help missionaries who are in the United States on furlough being able to arrange paperwork, visas, passports and meet various requirements for their return to their field.

Being that this has been a very different year, my letter to begin the year of 2021 might be a little different.  I have written each of our missionaries a similar letter to encourage them.  Having served in the foreign field of Mexico, I realize that the missionaries you support have been greatly affected.  I have not "been where they are" but I have tried to imagine how I would have felt if I were not allowed to be "door-knocking."  I really cannot imagine how I would have felt if the government had closed down the church I was planting and [...]

Missionaries are facing more and more obstacles in some of the countries where they serve.  I talked with several of our missionaries over the past week.  In some countries, it differs even from state to state.  I talked with Jon Hall in Australia last night.  He is church planting in New South Wales.  They are able to have "on site" services during the week, but the Sunday morning services have been shut down by the Government.  In Victoria, Missionary Chris Eckels has been shut down completely and is using "ZOOM" for all services.  Australia has proved difficult.

I have mentioned one of our missionaries several times. Yery Martinez and his wife, Waldi, who live and serve in Honduras.  I talked with Yery for a good length of time last night.  Waldi has completed the first four chemo treatments and has four more to follow, which will go into November.  Her first treatment caused her no problem but the last three have been very hard on her.  To continue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click on the link below.

We continue to work with missionary families on every field to help them cope with the problems the world-wide pandemic has caused.  We continue to receive notifications daily from the State Department's STEP program, (Smart Traveler Enrollment Program), which give a detailed list of countries, and cities in those countries, where it is dangerous to travel because of the high number of Covid 19 cases and the rapid spread.  To cotinue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click on the link below.

As you know, the last two to three months have been very different, and they continue to change.  We have found that every country in which we have missionaries serving are even more different from America. Our office continues to be open as the government declared us to be "an essential service" for which we are thankful.  To continue reading the update from Ernest Gambrell, please click the link below.

From the opening of January until now it has been a very busy new year.  I will begin by updating you on the petition filed for an R-1 Visa to bring missionary Yery Martinez to the States for a short period of time for further training.  After 14 months (October 2018 until December 2019) we worked with the USCIS in California to obtain the R-1 petition approval.

In my August News/Prayer Letter I shared with you a little of what we do "behind the scenes" in the Home Office to assist local churches, the missionaries they send and support, plus the cause of Christ around the World.  This month, I thought it might be good to share some of the same.

Referring back to my last letter, I am glad to report that Richard Miller, a missionary of almost 50 years, has had great improvement in his severe back pain to the point that he is not going to have surgery at this time.  Please continue to pray that the pain will not return as it was severe.
