Round Robin Mission Conference

We had a terrific time at the Round Robin Mission Conference in South Dakota! It was an exciting whirlwind and here is a highight from each church:

Bethany Bible Baptist Church, Tulare, Pastor Todd Bowers  It was great to see Todd and Becky again! Years ago, Wil had a part in Todd’s call into minstry and his ordination while Todd was in Moorcroft, WY. We are blessed by their faithfulness in ministry and their 11 year stay at Tulare. Just think- we originally supported Todd as a missionary out of Fellowship Baptist in Cheyenne, and now his church hosted us as their missionaries during the conference!

Prairie Winds Baptist Church, Elkton, SD Pastor Mike Forsberg  I can’t believe all Pastor Forsberg and I had in common - it was uncanny and made for instant friendship. We had a good Monday night here - these folks ask great questions! We believe God has burdened their hearts to help with a specific project, and we look forward to how God will have us work together in the future!

Bible Baptist Church, Brookings, SD Pastor Jason Filler  Lots of blessings here (HyVee has an amazing salad bar!) - but the most outstanding one was God’s apparent calling upon a deacon in this church, Wes Brown, to the PNG mission field! We are very excited for this experienced pilot to be pursuing becoming a part of the team. Please pray for Wes and his family.

Calvary Baptist Church, Huron, SD Pastor Bill Holmes  Pastor Holmes and his wife instantly became some of my heros when I heard they had been at this church for 30 year! Praise God for faithful servants! He is the one with the vision for the Round Robin Conference and we so appreciated the work he put into its organization. We had a sweet close to the conference in this church. Several men hung around the display following the service asking questions about our future work.
