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.)

A Mississippi Boy in Nigeria

So what do you get when you take a young man from Mississippi and a young lady from Louisiana, then toss them together into West Africa? Simple - today's featured missionary family.

Bro. Mark Holmes and his wife Sabrina are that couple and their blog is simply called, "Missionary Holmes," found here: http://missionaryholmes.blogspot.com/.

The Holmes family has served in Abuja, Nigeria, since 2005, where the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been proclaimed from the aptly-named Truth Baptist Church and taught at Temple Baptist Institute.

I enjoyed poking around Bro. Holmes' blog, because it contains a wealth of information about the family, their ministry and the country in which they serve. You can also find a number of ways to contact the family (which I suspect would be a real blessing to them!).

So stop on by and visit this family and their work and keep them in your prayers as they seek to reach their corner of the world for the cause of Christ.

As always, please remember to pray more, give more and, if God calls, go farther than before for the cause of world missions.

In Christ,

Bro. Garry
