  • Welcome Guest

    Tired of all the fighting that goes on in facebook groups? Are you ready for a community where you can talk about things of God and the Bible without getting branded a heretic? Well, we are glad you found us. Why don't you give us a try and see how friendly and different we are. - BroMatt

Plack Road Baptist Church in North Pole, Alaska always had an annual missionary conference when I lived in Alaska. I have not lived in Alaska since I left in 2003, so I am not familiar with the new pastor there.

This church was started as a mission work out of Rodger's Baptist Church in Garland, Texas. Both Rodger's and  this mission work, which is now a church are solid Independent Baptists. You might contact the pastor from the link of his church's website here.

There are three other solid Independent Baptist churches in the area, which may make a deputation trip there worth while. Each of these four churches were started as mission works and continue to support missions world-wide.

Rodgers Baptist Church has been the sending church for many missionaries over the years. You may want to add them to your list.

Though I've never met Bro. Dayton personally, I'm quite familiar with him. He originally went to Costa Rica to learn Spanish, one year later went to Managua. One of my national pastor contacts (Her. Ramon Gonzalez Sequeria, Pastor of Iglesia Bautista Renacer since 1974) is a product of Bro. Dayton's ministry. Between 26 known mission boards in the U.S. (there's no way to count the number of missionaries not through boards) there are only 12 missionaries in Nicaragua (6 are BIMI). There are only 188 known IB churches in the country (in comparison there are over 600 in NC and over 800 in TX) and some of them (such as the one in Jinotega) have become Charismatic.

Brother, I would be happy to have you come visit us, but it would cost you more than it is worth.

If you can get a "stand alone" presentation together, I would be happy to show it and pass it around my friends, but it is hard enough for Australian Missionaries to gain support.

We can definitely pray though.

When I can later, I will get a multimedia presentation sent to you. I know that prayer support is vital for the missionary AND the congregation. Christians need missions always before them lest it become "out of sight, out of mind". There's something about "the missionary we pray for" or if a youth group or Sunday School class has "OUR missionary".

Amen brother, amen.

We support James Carter in Western Australia.  

I know James.

His dad, Pastor Gaylor Carter looked after the church I was at many years ago while our Pastor was reporting back to his supporting churches.

I went on a Youth canoe trip with James when he was in his late teens and I was in my early 20's.

Later, we went out to a place called Kellerberrin to help Pastor Gaylor clean up a church building and hold some meetings to get things started out there.

James is about 100 miles from where I am, so we don't see other much. Pastor Gaylor is back in the US suffering with age related problems.

 

One thing is sure - the labourers are few...........

So far we have had some interesting adventures and misadventures in Matagalpa. Have been overcharged a couple of times (gringo tax). Made a couple of good contacts in town including a national pastor (Ivis Calindres of Calvary Baptist, Matagalpa) who may be able to help us get our feet on the ground when we move here (they have been instrumental in establishing six churches in the country). Our sending church will be Old Paths Baptist Church in Ruidoso, N.M. (Pastor Joshua de los Santos) and they will be helping our linguistic studies as we seek to raise support. The owner of the house we are staying in is keeping our feet to the fire by forcing us to use Spanish ---- which is good.

Today being New Year's Day, everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) is closed. Even the two supermarkets that are owned by Wal-Mart (La Colonia and Pali), so I'll wait till tomorrow to buy more food. I walk about a mile, place my backpack in a locker, shop, pay, retrieve the backpack, place purchased items therein, walk back, repeat in about three days. I will also stop at the mercado campesino (farmer's market) on the trip (it's about 1/4 mile off path). Such is shopping in this city of 120,000 people.

A couple of days ago the propane ( for the stove ) ran out in the midst of fried chicken and biscuit cooking, while washing dishes the water quit ( if the city works on the system, they don't give a head's up ) and we had a 7 hour power shortage. Our host's son says, "No gas, no water, no electricity --- Welcome to Nicaragua!"

Due to the holiday, weather ( all clothes are hung outside to dry )and power outage we were in the same outfit for 3 days. Oh, we have 5 days worth of clothes here and this was 2 separate clothing runs ---- at the laundromat. You drop the clothes off, you can't use the equipment. The sink here is too small to be practical for washing and the is no such thing as a bathtub, it's a shower --- most Nicaraguans don't have hot water unless they boil it.

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Romans 10:15)

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! (Isaiah 52:7)

The feet of missionaries before and after the Great Commission would often travel far and wide to preach the good news of the Gospel; and as a result, their feet would be in poor condition. Their feet are "beautiful" because being in such poor condition as they were showed how far they've traveled to preach the Good News. These men and women would go to great lengths and would travel far distances to share the Gospel.

Old Fashioned Preacher,

How is everything going? Care to give an update? On the deputation trail yet? Still looking for a motorhome?

Have motorhome, currently moving into it. Had MANY loose ends to tie up, last day at my secular job is this coming Thursday. Have some things to take to our youngest (Musician4God 1611) and see grandkids, other things to deliver to a church in Arkansas. Our middle son is working on our A/V presentation but has had two major snags -- One) his f-i-l's final days on earth. Two) his computer now won't come up for him.

The sway isn't complete yet (9 Jun 2018) but is only missing some photos. You find more info there including reference letters + more.

If you ask your pastor to visit our sway (the video is on it) he can type into his browser the address in the link above (that is an upper case I not a lower case L before the question mark).

Thanks for the update, the deputation video, link information. I personally like the scripture verse that you wrote on your Prayer Card. 1 Thessalonians 1:9, “For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God.”

It is my prayer that the Lord blesses your efforts on the deputation trail and your work in Nicaragua.
