Newsletter September 2019

“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!” – Psalm 96:3  
First Baptist Church is blessed to support ten missionaries scattered around the globe.  Not only do we send financial support, but we have traveled to serve several of our missionaries including the Coopers in New Zealand in 2013, the Pines and Owens in Great Britain in 2016, and the Butlers in San Francisco in 2019.  Within the past five years, we have hosted the Butlers, the Coopers, the Browns in Mexico, our friends in the Middle East, and our friends in Turkey.  Several other of our missionaries have been here in the more distant past as well.  
In the months of September, we will have the privilege of hosting two more of our missionaries. On Sunday, September 1, Jonathan and Joanna Liggett will be a First Baptist to share how God is working in Guatemala.  You may remember the Liggetts, from their Christmas Cheer Pack Ministry.  Each of the past few Christmases they have assembled and distributed gifts to children in their community as a way to then share the gospel with their families.  First Baptist has sent supplies and money to support this ministry.  
We also serve friends in China.  Because of the sensitive nature of their ministry, they are unable to share much of their ministry while they are in China.  They are currently in the United States and, while they are unable to be physically with us, they will be sharing with us via video chat on Wednesday, September 18 at 6:30 p.  I would love for you to join us to hear the details of their ministry and ask questions.  
God’s will is to make salvation known to every nation.  Your support of our Mission Fund allows First Baptist to partner with our missionaries to carry out this mission.  Our Mission Fund is kept separate from our General (Budgeted) Fund.  To give to our Mission Fund, you can use the offering envelopes in the back of the pew to indicate how much of your offering should go toward our missionaries.  You can also designate a portion of your gift when donating online at  I hope that you’ll be praying for all our missionaries, joining us in September to hear from two of our missionaries, and giving faithfully to our Mission Fund to continue our partnerships around the globe.
