As the service was closing, a couple made their way toward their pastor.
They had been talking for months about the burden God had placed on their hearts to serve Jesus Christ on the mission field. The day of decision had come. Tears of joy were flowing with excitement and uncertainty.
The pastor reflected on that moment, “I was thrilled and, at the same time, completely overwhelmed. How was the church going to help them on their way? How could we support them on the mission field? I had encouraged them and prayed with them to follow Christ, but when they announced where God was directing the course of their lives, I knew we needed help to get them there, and to sustain them for future years of fruitful ministry. At the same time, I knew that God would supply all their needs.”
And that’s when they called Baptist Mid-Missions.
