The Smiths – Estonia

We had a very encouraging visit from a supporting pastor and his wife.  In over 24 years of missions, this is the 1st time a supporting pastor has visited us on the field!  We did have another supporter stop in as he was already "in country" visiting his daughter and grandchildren but this was the first time that we were the reason for a visit.  Amen!

The Rardins – Mexico

We have been back in Mexico City a little over five weeks, and our church is going strong with a full auditorium on Sunday mornings and good attendances in the evening and midweek services.  Brother Oscar did a good job preaching during our absence and has one more year of training in the Bible Institute.   About an average of 15 people are going out knocking on doors on Saturday mornings and another 15 on Tuesday nights are passing out tracts to the Jews in Polanco.  Others visit on the routes on Saturday.

Inner City Baptist Missions

This year we are working with six church plants.  We are happy to report that this brings us to "50" new churches we have helped over the last twenty years.  Please pray for these new works and their pastors and people.  These new churches are reaching communities without a gospel lighthouse or are part of reseeding America in places where the light has gone out.

The Dunbars – Brazil

We have been praying for the Lord to do something special in our church services and the Lord has answered. Back in August we had a man visit us from New York City.  He married a Brazilian woman, whose parents live here in Bauru.  He was excited to find a good Bible believing Baptist church.  He planned on returning for the evening service with his wife and children, who were sick that morning.

The Canavans – Ireland

For several years, we have worked and prayed to reach more children.  In September 2015, Andrew moved back to Ireland and became the youth pastor here at Hope Baptist Church.  We thank God for allowing Andrew to work with us and to help further the vision of reaching more and more children with the gospel.

The Cromwells

Heir of God, and joint-heirs with Christ While in Zambia, Africa, for over two months, we have assisted with teaching in the Christian School, building maintenance, and organizing an anniversary campaign.  We never get used to leaving the ministries where we are called to serve.  In the past we served while the missionary departs for furlough.  This time I worked alongside Missionary Adam Rich, as he continued to supervise IBC Kabwe.

The Gardners – Japan

We once again want to thank you for your faithful support and prayers for the ministry here in Japan.  It has been a hot summer and is still hot even in September.  Here in Okinawa we have had several typhoons, but most of them missed us so we did not have very much damage this year.  Only the roof on our carport was torn off and some damage to the roof on our house.

The Gordons – FBWWM

Pat and Greta Gordon - FBWWM Many times, we have personally witnessed 'mantle passing' in its Biblical sense.  In reading I Kings 19, we know that the Lord ordained Elisha to take Elijah's prophetic office.  Elijah "cast his mantle upon him. [Elisha]"  Yet the transfer did not actually take place until 2 Kings 2, where the Word says, "He [Elisha] took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him [Elijah]..."
