Dr. Pat Creed, Sr.
June and I had a very different Christmas and New Year's holiday
time this year because of an ear surgery I had in December. This
caused me to miss the midyear meeting at the World Missions
Center to approve new missionaries and also the Caribbean Field
Conference in the Dominican Republic (DR) the first week of
January. But everything went well, and we are back on schedule.
The last week of January we took a trip to the DR along with
Pastor Dennis Leatherman and his wife, Kathy, from Mountain
Lake Independent Baptist Church in Oakland, Maryland. Pastor
Leatherman taught a module on Methods of Bible Study, and it was
a tremendous time with the folks
at Steve Sidler's in Quita Sueño.
He is in the process of trying to
purchase three motorbikes for
men who have started churches
and others planning to start in
the near future because they have
no transportation at all. They
presently have enough for two
of the motorbikes and hopefully
will raise the money for the third
one so we may purchase those
when we go back the first week
of April. The men are very appreciative and are using the ten laptops
we were able to get them and the materials we were able to place in
their hands for their Bible study and sermon preparation time. On
the April trip to the DR, Dr. John Bailes and his wife Sandy will be
going with us, and Dr. Bailes will be teaching a module on Church
Planting. I know this will be an incredible blessing and help to
these fellows who are in the Bible institute and others who will be
attending as they become involved in starting new churches.
We are already planning four trips to the DR for 2015. Two of those
will be taking pastors to teach in the Bible institutes, and the other
trips will be for the purpose of taking groups from two different
churches to visit the missionaries and see the need in the country.
