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.)

Sharing their Joy in Kenya

Every so often (especially when I've had a drought on finding new blogs), I'll stop by and visit my friends at Baptist Missionary Women (http://baptistmissionarywomen.blogspot.com/) to see if they've added anyone new.

The other day I wandered past and discovered my newest missionary blog.  I am so excited to introduce you to Mrs. Jessi Cormier, author of "Joy Unspeakable," which tells all about her family (husband BJ and two kids) and their lives ministering to the Deaf in Kenya.  You can find Mrs. Jessi here:  http://joyunspeakableinkenya.blogspot.com/

My desire in writing this blog is for you to learn about what missionaries do, how they live and how they serve the Lord on their chosen field.  Well, Mrs. Jessi has an entire section of her blog where she shares her desire for her blog.  Check out this quote: "My goal and purpose for this blog is to show you what it is really like to be a missionary.  For many people in America and in first-world countries, the foreign mission field is so far away and so difficult to imagine."

It's really easy to get lost in Mrs. Jessi's blog; she has one section where she gives her testimony, another where she has pictures of her family and another with some recipes unique to Kenya.  But the best of all is a section where Mrs. Jessi shares her statement of faith and the Plan of Salvation.

Please stop by and see "Joy Unspeakable."  You can sign up for email updates and subscribe to the blog as well.

Don't forget to pray for this family (as well as all of the missionaries who serve around the world).  Pray for their safety, their ministries and for the Lord to bless their labors. 

As much as the lost world needs the Gospel, our missionaries need us to support them.  Please make a commitment this year to Pray More, Give More and, if God calls you, Go Farther than ever for the cause of world missions.

Until next time, may God bless you and your families as you serve Him.

In Christ,

Bro. Garry

  1. Jessi's blog is one of my all-time favorites! She grew up on the mission field, so she has a unique, double perspective that shows through in her posts.
