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.)

As promised, a trip Down Under

On Saturday, I introduced you to a blog dedicated to women missionaries. At the time, I promised that I would introduce you to one of that blog's co-authors in my next post. Not wanting to break my promise, I am so pleased to present to you Mrs. Jen Bauer, author of "Be Thou Exalted."

Mrs. Jen and her husband, Patrick, are missionaries in Darwin, Australia. You can find "Be Thou Exalted" here: http://bethouexalted.blogspot.com/.

I was amazed when I read this blog for the first time - the Bauers have only been on the field for a month! That's right, Jen Bauer is a veteran blogger, but is brand new to this mission field! Add to that the fact that she co-authors "Baptist Missionary Women" with Mrs. Carole Shull and I'm pretty amazed. (Don't forget that I previously introduced you to Mrs. Shull's blog, "Arctic Adventures" and it can be found on the list at right.)

I know that blogging requires a certain time commitment. To do it while taking care of two kids is even more amazing, and it is just astounding to know someone who can write two blogs while taking care of two kids AND finishing deputation for the foreign field.

I read through some of her pre-move posts and really admire Mrs. Jen. This is truly a blog that tells you what goes on in the mind of a missionary and how that move to the field will affect her life.

Please keep this family in your prayers as they settle in to the ministry where God has called them. Don't forget to subscribe to Mrs. Jen's blog, and don't forget to subscribe to this blog as well, and sign up for email updates.

Don't forget to keep the Lord first in your life this week and keep praying for all of our missionaries.

In Christ,

Bro. Garry
