We are thankful for all who regularly intercede in prayer.  These are definitely challenging and heavy times, which have burdened many to pray even more  We are reminded of Paul, the missionary church planter, who exhorted the believers in Thessalonica to pray on behalf of himself and his co-laborers.  To continue reading the update from Pat Gordon, please click on the link below.

Throughout AIM 2021 our Lord did marvelous and victorious things!  Sunday school classes and services were filled with Biblical challenges from around the world.  After the evening service, a testimony and prayer time for those in college and high school went on for an hour and a half with the young people exhorting and challening one another by what God is doing in their lives.

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.

We give praise and honor the the Lord for the privilege to have ministered to and with His precious servants: two of our long-time Zambian friends have recently entered into the presence of the Savior.  Brother M.J. Silwamba and Sister Angela Moyo were special blessing in our lives - and they are truly trophies of God's grace. To continue reading the update from Pat Gordon, please click on the link below.

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 [...]

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.

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 have the honor in life to be called to the uttermost.  By God's grace, we serve those who send those who are sent, those who are preparing to be sent, and those in the uttermost who are served by those sent.  This year continues to have special challenges that the Lord is turning into blessings.

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.
