Missionaries are the true heroes of today - men, women and children who have surrendered all and determined to fulfill the Great Commission by carrying the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to the farthest corners of the globe.

(DISCLAIMER: I am a member of an Independent, Fundamental KJV-preaching, soul-winning Baptist Church in Lubbock, Texas. However, this blog is my own creation and is not a ministry of Bethany Baptist Church. Missionaries featured in this space may or may not be supported by my church. Inclusion in this list does not imply any affiliation with Bethany Baptist Church, nor does it offer any extra "in" for a missionary to present his work at our church. Inviting a missionary to our church is not my decision, but my Pastor's. I'm sorry to have to include this, but don't want to have any misunderstandings to come out of what is intended to be a blessing.)

Going into more of the World

I know it's late, but I am so excited to have two more missionary families to share with you all!

My heart's desire is that we will be able to travel the world together, visiting missionaries on their home fields and rejoicing with them in the victories God has provided. It's great to meet missionaries at home during Mission Conference, or when someone comes through town on a Wednesday night, but blogging with them will give us all a real sense of the challenges they face in adapting to a new culture, language and lifestyle.

First off, let me introduce you to the Joe Consford Family and their blog the "Consford Chronicles" (http://consfords.blogspot.com/). I really enjoyed visiting their blog, because Bro. and Mrs. Consford have an in-depth information page with their testimonies and a chronology of how they got to where they are today. Originally, the Consfords planned to serve God in Ivory Coast, Africa, but they are currently serving in Ghana, West Africa due to political unrest in Ivory Coast.

I would encourage you to poke around their blog and see how God is using this couple from Center, Texas, to further His work on the Dark Continent.

Our next missionary takes us back around the world to South America. Bro. Paul Szabatin and his family are part of what is called "Team Peru." I'm not going to try and explain this here, but suffice it to say that Bro. Szabatin and his family are determined to do their part to further the Gospel in Peru, and from what I've read, they will ultimately have several other families joining their efforts. Their blog is called "Szabatin Peru Adventures" (https://szabatinperuadventures.wordpress.com/).

The Szabatins have been sent out of First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana.

That's it for now - I hope everyone has a great Lord's Day. Keep praying for missionaries and ask God if He would have you to go. If not, you can still pray and you can still give.

In Christ,
