What in the world does our Missions Office do?

Standing beside and behind the BBFI missionaries are a group of people who serve the Lord and serve us at the Missions Office.

We encourage you to take some time and read about all the different facets of their work and how it benefits us personally as well as all the different works around the world. Just click on the link below Global2018.

If you don’t support the Missions office monthly (we do!), pray about the possibility of joining their effort to make the missionaries’ lives and ministries more effective as we reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 


“Let’s go places”

When Jack and I arrived in the U.S. on Sept. 5th to begin our furlough, we saw an ad on TV with the slogan “Let’s go places”.  We had just decided that our old motto, “on the road again” was outdated, so we chose this catchy phrase as we began our travels.

Once out on the highways to visit our churches, we have experienced some nervous and tense moments as we continually have to be watchful to adjust our speed. Sometimes we can travel at 65, or 70 or even 75 miles per hour (depending on what State we are passing through).  When we are on secondary roads or in a place of road construction, the variations are many in how fast or how slow we need to go. The constant adjustment to the speed limit can be exasperating, but certainly keeps us both alert!

This is very similar to our lives as we must constantly adjust to troubles, difficult situations outside of our control, or trials that come our way.  What a blessing to know that our Heavenly Father by way of His Spirit is constantly guiding us through each change of speed that comes into our lives.  Through His word, He encourages and guides us so that we need not fear nor get tense trying to adjust. Sometimes we have to speed up and sometimes it seems we are just crawling along, but we can trust Him who ever cares for us. His peace can be our constant companion as we adjust our speed.  Yes, “let’s go places” in our daily lives and in our spiritual walk with the sure knowledge that no matter what the “speed”, He is in control and we can rest in His love!

August 2017 Prayer Letter

June, July & August 2017

Dear Pastor and Church family,

Youth camp celebrates 40th anniversary of camps. This prayer letter will be wholly
dedicated to sharing the ministry of Mount Calvary Baptist Youth Camp, in Guadalajara, Spain.  Our church supports this ministry financially and through our prayers. Joy and I have been serving there for the past 35 summers, since we arrived in 1982.
We have watched God provide funds for the buildings that He has allowed us to build, and seen how God used Bro. Lavon & Carolyn Waters, the founders, to make this a vital ministry in the independent Baptist churches all over Spain. In the month of January, bro. Ángel Torres, pastor of the Iglesia Bautista La Cruz in Guadalajara, became the new director, as Bro. Waters resigned. We continue to be the camp “coordinators” which basically means we get to do a ton of planning, preparing and then passionately serve in each of the four weeks of camps. I directed 2 camps this summer, and Joy led 3 of the 4 kitchen crews. We are so grateful to work alongside so many pastors and missionaries to carry out camp’s philosophy which is:
“To take time away from the world and draw near to God by the teaching and preaching of the Bible, providing opportunity for fellowship among believers, and sharing in daily living among believers for the glory of God.”

Spiritual Retreat (all ages)
So very thankful for the 30 churches in Spain who participated in one or more camps and helped us celebrate the 40 years of ministry. The souls saved and the innumerable spiritual decisions that were made in each camp, will be seen as these campers live them out in their local churches for the glory of God. An intense and concentrated effort with long lasting fruit!
If you have spanish speaking friends, please share the camp website (

Furlough 2017
During the month of September we will be traveling back to the U.S., to begin our short furlough. If we are not able to be with you to report of the work this time, please let
us know so that we can schedule you next time. Thank you so much for standing by us with your faithful prayers and support for the souls in Spain.
In His Service,
