Equipping God's Servants By Pat Creed June and I have been in some wonderful missions conferences in recent months. We've had the privilege of seeing good increase in Faith Promise commitments, pastors encouraged with their missions programs and some folks surrendering to go to the mission field. It is a tremendous blessing to serve missionaries and to serve with missionaries who desire to get the Gospel to places God has called them and to serve churches with a heart for missions. We also spent some time in the Dominican Republic (DR) making two trips, taking pastors to teach modulars in church institutes. In March, Pastor Dennis Leatherman of Mountain Lake Independent Baptist Church taught Methods of Bible Study for Josh Wesson and his institute. Pastor William Tyson of Woodlawn Baptist Church of Bowie, Maryland, was with Steve Sidler and taught on Marriage and the Family. Then in May, Pastor Jon Rediger of Eastern Shore Baptist Church of Grasonville, Maryland, taught the Book of Acts for Brother Wesson. Pastor Ron Titus of Cornerstone Baptist Church of Owings, Maryland, taught for Steve Sidler on The Church. These were exciting classes and the missionaries were very encouraged by the response of their people to every session. They are already planning for 2014 and the pastors who will be going to teach classes at that time. We were also involved in trying to get materials to the men who are starting churches in the DR and those that are preparing to start churches. We appreciate very much Woodlawn Baptist Church giving the money to purchase ten laptops. We were able to change them over to Spanish, to put some Bible programs on them, and then to deliver them to men in the DR. We were also able to purchase seven study Bibles to put in the hands of these men. We have a full schedule of conferences for the fall and are very excited about the opportunity to challenge churches to give and to go. Islander – No 2, 2013 7
