Director of Regular Baptist International Chris Hindal welcomed friends and supporters to the 2018 International Luncheon, which was held on the ministry’s 45th birthday. Ninety diners watched and listened as Chris gave a PowerPoint presentation covering an initiative of Regular Baptist Press International in Hong Kong and multiple church planting efforts in South India. Learning about flooding in Bangladesh and Kenya and the armed robbery of a pastor in Haiti moved diners to give $1,400 for international emergency assistance. Chris praises God for this act of compassion.

Four presentations from international guests—two from Liberia, one from Myanmar, and one from India—emphasized the tremendous work being done through the GARBC’s international partners. “Not only do they express great vision,” says Chris, “but great accomplishments.”

Chris shared his take on the luncheon: “Everyone enjoyed a great meal and each was challenged to pray and support our overseas brothers and sisters in their efforts to fulfill the Great Commission assignment.”
