  • Speaking @ the East Caribbean Baptist Mission (Antigua)
  • I am writing this post from Antigua & Barbuda.

    Crystal and I arrived Friday evening. I am here to speak for the East Caribbean Baptist Mission led by Dr. Hensworth W.C. Jonas.

    Dr. Jonas is the pastor of Central Baptist Church, where he has served for 26 years. Under his leadership, the congregation has planted several affiliated churches across the island. It was what we would call “one church in multiple locations.” Central is also the home of one of the leading schools on the island, which is also led by Dr. Jonas.

    I am here to speak for their Harvest Sunday and circuit anniversary. There will also be a 3-night evangelistic crusade.

    I was privileged to speak for this meeting last year. It was a rich time of fellowship and worship. I am glad and grateful to have been invited to participate in the meeting again this year.

    I will speak at their leadership banquet tonight. And I think I am scheduled to speak 3 times on Sunday. Then there will be services Monday through Wednesday.

    This trip is already a better trip than last year, because I am not traveling by myself. Crystal is with me. This is the first time we have traveled out of the country together. And I am hoping to get some rest and refreshment during our stay.

    Please cover us with believing prayer this week.

    May the Lord bless the ministry of the word to draw the lost, edify the saints, and bring glory to his majestic name!
