Beachside Baptisms and a Trip to America

 What an amazing Easter service we had last month.  We were joined by a crowd near 100 people, our biggest yet.  And to finish the day off, we baptized 9 brand new believers in the Straits of Malacca.

So many great things are happening here in Penang.  Before our eyes we are seeing an awesome church filled with the next generation being established in a Muslim nation.  And we are seeing lives totally transformed through their new found faith in Christ.

Only three years ago, EaglePoint was a handful of Penang Medical College students studying the Bible, praying for a pastor and carrying a vision that the Lord would use them to start a church in Penang.

Thanks to the courage of Pastor Jojo and Ida to leave their comfortable life in the Philippines to pastor eight college students at PMC, EaglePoint Christian Fellowship was born.

And now for some unseen reason, (in our eyes, not God’s) Cindy and I have found ourselves here in Penang to help grow and establish this church.  Church planting is not for the faint of heart, as trials and spiritual warfare lay before us everyday.

But we believe, the greatest long term impact we can have in Malaysia is establishing a church that is passionate about reaching the lost, training young leaders and making disciples of all the nations.

Thanks so much for being a part of this awesome work.  Because you have helped send us to this mission field, we are able to freely pour our lives into these amazing young people and this thriving new church.  And we are so grateful to you!

We look forward to seeing you soon in the states.  Please drop us a note and let us know if you will be available to meet during our time home.  Thank you again for keeping our family in your prayers!
