The power of the gospel is more evident around the globe than Americans sometimes experience, says Chris Hindal, director of Regular Baptist International. The ministry hosted six representatives from associations in the International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries during the 2017 GARBC Conference. During its workshop on Wednesday, the audience heard reports from associations of the IPFBM: Brother Aaron reported from the African Fundamental Baptist Mission in Liberia, West Africa, about church planting, pro-life ministries, audio and video productions, and medical outreach. He also shared that the greatest need is to train pastors. Then Brother Moses Chatla brought a report from Indian Christian Bethel Baptist Gospel Fellowship in South India. Though many kinds of ministries are used to reach out, the primary emphasis is on planting churches in villages.
Hindal wrapped up the workshop with a PowerPoint overview of his spring trip to Myanmar. Bill Brittain, president of Baptist Children’s Home, observed, “These ministries do so much with small budgets that even small gifts go a long ways in changing the effectiveness of overseas missions. The International Partnership [IPFBM] vets these ministries so that churches and individuals can have confidence that they are supporting others of like faith.”
