Redirection

In 2003, God called me (Nat) to give my life to proclaim the Gospel, specifically on the foreign mission field. Since that time, He has been redirecting my understanding of missions to conform to the pattern of Scripture.

The Lord gave Anne 15 months of on-the-ground training in Thailand, as she assisted missionaries with publication and printing needs. It was through one of these projects for Thailand that God connected our paths together.

After much exposure to the needs in Thailand, Southeast Asia, God has directed our focus toward the people groups of Burma. Through the ministry of our home church, the Lord has prepared us for evangelism, discipleship and church planting overseas. We are now being sent out of Lehigh Valley Baptist Church, as ambassadors to Burma and Thailand.  Please visit our website for the latest information about the Williams mission at:  http://www.williamswitness.com

 The Fillions, Coaticook, Canada

God burdened our hearts to start an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church in the city of Coaticook, Québec, Canada. The town has witnessed a Baptist influence in the past, but now the only testimonies left are the empty old churches located in the town and the neighboring villages.
With God’s help, we plan to bring the glorious saving gospel of Jesus Christ to this needy town. Our plan is to be fully supported by July of 2017 and start ministering in Coaticook in August. We already have several places that would be perfect for a church building, and we are praying that God will clearly show where He wants this building to be.   You can connect with the Fillions at https://www.fillionsatcoaticook.com

The Ford FAMILY, ARIZONA 

 Billy, Julie and Madison Ford have been missionaries to the Tohono O’oDHAM people at villages in the Arizona City area of Arizona.   Here are some excerpts from their  February 2018 newsletter:
Dear Praying Friends and Faithful Supporters,
With each passing season, we find that we have more and more to learn about the people God has called us to serve , their culture, traditions,
and beliefs just to name a few.  This past holiday season presented many “firsts” for our family in learning about how the O’odham observe both Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the coming of the Holiday season Julie and I began to question our kids and adults about how their families celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas? Due to the level of poverty
that our Bible Club members live in, we felt there would be very little for each occasion. But to our surprise we were told that most do not
celebrate either holiday. We further learned that they did not truly 

 understand what each holiday represented, which was even more troubling to us.  Once we learned all of this, Julie’s mind was set that they were going to experience a complete Thanksgiving dinner and we were going to give them a traditional Christmas with food and gifts for everyone!

For the month of November, Julie worked with the children and adults during Craft Time on learning about Thanksgiving and being thankful.
One day she asked the simple question: What are you thankful for?
The question was confusing to both kids and adults as they didn’t know they were supposed to be thankful for anything and who to be thankful to. Once Julie explained James 1:17 ” Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above” their wheels started turning. One of the teenagers gave one
of the best answers of “I am thankful for my life, I love my life”. This is a child whose only meal most days comes from school lunch and our Bible Club.  In her house the family does not gather around for the Thanksgiving meal and there is not a Christmas tree.  But she is thankful for her life.
If Christmas didn’t involve gifts, decorations, and all the festivities,
could you list your life as something to be thankful for? I can truly say our experiences during the holiday season has reshaped our how we will celebrate both holidays.

The Spear Family, Gravatai, Brazil

 

 

 The Spears have established a
ministry in Gravatai, which is
in the southernmost tip of Brazil. Here
are some highlights from their Christmas
2018 newsletter:
We celebrated Christmas with American Missionaries from other
parts of the Greater Proto Alegre area. We also had a wonderful dinner at
the Church where we decided to have a birthday party for Jesus. All the peo-
ple were to bring a present for the church to celebrate Jesus’s birth. This
was a new concept for the people here, but they took hold of the idea and ex-
celled our expectations. The church was given a water cooler, baking dish-
es, a new sink for the kitchen, kitchen towels, and paint for painting the exte-
rior of the Church after we are able to fix the problems of the building.
We enter the year with new plans, new ideas, new ministries, and new
people. We have been so blessed this past year. Since our last letter, a new
program has been started named King’s Kids. We did not have the numbers
that we were expecting, but we do have some faithful and some not so faith-
ful. What is very interesting when kids come to the club, their parents ac-
company them to the study. We have one such mom and her name is Martha.
Her daughter is Taiana. They have been coming to the study faithfully for a
couple of weeks. They have heard the gospel through the songs, through the
games, through the studies, and through the work they have to memorize.
Our people are diligently praying for their salvation. There are also a brother
and sister that live across the street that have started to come as well. They
have some knowledge of the people of the Bible, but have no clue about sal-
vations. Their names are Eduardo and Bruna. Samuel has been trying to en-
courage the boys on the street to participate in the club as well.
