Missionaries serving in Bali & Sulawesi

God is richly blessing the church and small orphanage in Bali. Our seven orphans are being trained up in the way they should go. Pastor Wayan is working very hard to win the Hindus. It is a slow work, but salvation is of the Lord. The Holy Spirit must draw those who will accept Christ. In February three adults were saved and two baptized. The other one will be baptized soon. Baptism is a big step for a converted Hindu. Many experience terrible persecution. Also, many new people have visited the church.

Our new church in Tondano, Sulawesi is exciting. Sulawesi has long experienced a form of Christianity and they have some very large, beautiful church buildings – but do not know the Christ of Christianity. Our people are meeting under a simple tin roof with no walls, but more people are coming each month. In February, a lady came to the service and afterwards was crying. Pastor Berens’ wife, Jill, talked and prayed with her. She had claimed to be a Christian when she married a Muslim man. After they had four children, he abandoned them. She has accepted the Lord and will be baptized soon. Her eldest son (9 years) started coming to church first and he has told Pastor Berens that he wants to be a preacher.


Dr. David Emery Cross

Our Beloved friend, vice president and treasurer departed for Glory at 8:47 Saturday morning, April 4, 2015. The Lord took him as his family was gathered around him singing Before the Throne of God Above.

His was a life well lived. He served his Savior faithfully. Now he is in the presence of God. Pray for the Cross family to be comforted and to heal. Pray for Faith Baptist church to be comforted and to make right decisions in the days ahead. Pray for us as we seek God’s will in filling the positions that have been vacated.

New Missionaries Coming!

We always pray and encourage others to pray that God would send forth laborers into His harvest. We are thrilled when BIO can have a part in this answer. We are excited to report that as of right now we have three new missionary couples coming for approval on May 7th.

Danny and Jordan Bonikowsky are headed to Northern Spain. Ian and Candace are headed to the Far East. Dan and Melissa Bode are coming as missionaries through recovery ministry.

We praise the Lord for these missionaries and their obedience to God. Luke 10:2 say this, “Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” Thank you for your prayers! The Lord is answering!
