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.)

Ever been to Estonia?

I know I say this every time, but I am really excited to introduce you to my newest missionary blogger! I really REALLY mean it this time, because I've seen "Rachel's Reflections" several times and couldn't wait to make contact with the author.

So without further ado, I invite you to join me in Johvi, Estonia, to share the lives of Mrs. Rachel Winkler and her family (http://winklerfamilyupdate.blogspot.com/).

Mrs. Rachel, her husband Ron and their four children have been serving the Lord in Johvi since 2009, bringing the light of the Gospel to a dark land. Estonia is located just east of Russia, north of Latvia and south across the Gulf of Finland (east end of the Baltic Sea) from Finland. (Of course, I didn't know this off the top of my head; I had to look it all up!). Johvi is located in the northeastern part of the country, fairly close to St. Petersburg, Russia.

Anyway, Mrs. Rachel's blog offers a great insight into their heart for the Estonian people. I encourage you to stop by and see for yourselves what is going on in their lives. By the way, she also has a link on her blog to the family's website, which gives you even more information about the family and their ministry.

Don't forget while you're there to sign up to get Mrs. Rachel's updates by email. I'd appreciate it if you would sign up for my updates, too, so you can meet the missionaries almost as soon as I do!

Until next time, keep support missions - pray, give and go!

In Christ,

Bro. Garry

  1. I have never met Rachel, but we have met her husband and her cousin Malinda was a bridesmaid in my wedding! Rachel's blog is one of my favorites!
