Thank you for the opportunity and privilege of introducing ourselves to you. We are missionaries that are sent out of Harvest Baptist Church in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The Lord has called my wife and I to be church planters in New Zealand. We pray that you will consider partnering with us as we strive to obey the Lord and help pull souls out of the darkness of New Zealand.
I (Logan) have grown up in New Zealand for most of my life. I came to New Zealand as a Missionary kid in 2003 with my parents, Guy and Debbie Bankston. I went to Bible college in 2009 where I met my wife, Brittany. Since graduation in 2013, we have come back to New Zealand where we both have served at Harvest Baptist Church in Palmerston North. I interned from 2014 until 2017 when I was ordained as a Pastor. I became Assistant Pastor at Harvest Baptist Church. Over the last 15 years, for myself, and 5 years, for my wife, God has blessed in a unique way. God has allowed us to serve in, and get to know the people of, the country He has called us too.
New Zealand is by far, one of the darkest countries in the World. It is not bound by a major country-wide religion. It is a country where 55% of the population claim no religion and have no interest in religion! We need your help in order to reach these souls for Christ! We are seeking support from local churches with which God would have us “co-labor together,” to fulfill the Great Commission in New Zealand. If your church is not able to support us financially, then please consider praying for us. We would like to ask your church to pray that God will soften the hearts of the people here in New Zealand to hear the Truth of God’s Word. We have found it very difficult to get through to them; that they need the Lord. This country is prosperous, which gives them a false since of security. Because they are prosperous, they feel that they are being blessed and do not need to turn to the Lord.
If you allow us to come and minister to your church, we would be glad to offer you:
1. Preaching from the King James Bible
2. A Presentation on New Zealand
3. A Display Table on New Zealand
4. Singing and Piano playing
5. Soul Winning and Visitation
Thank you for taking the time to read our Missionary Package. Would you prayerfully consider supporting us either through prayer, financially, or both?"
