Women of the Word IN the Word

Wanda taught on the book of Titus at a ladies’ conference at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Camden, ME in September. Together they studied the book of Titus and Wanda also shared with them some simple Bible study questions they can use in their continued study of God’s Word. Her Bible study ideas are available on this website at http://herbandwanda.com/our-resources-3.

Sharing with the BCP Council

Twice a year we meet at the home office of our mission agency, Baptist Church Planters, in Grafton, OH where we share about what is happening in our Hispanic ministries with the BCP Council members. It is a joy to work with these committed ministry team members.

Our Iowa Hispanic Retreat

We were thrilled that 169 attendees participated in the Iowa Hispanic Retreat in August. This special weekend retreat provides special physical and spiritual refreshment in the midst of the beautiful creation at the Iowa Regular Baptist Camp in Clear Lake, IA. It is our joy to help lead this retreat every year. This year due to scheduling challenges, Wanda helped lead the retreat while Herb was serving in ministry in California.

Livestream Project

We are so thankful for those who graciously gave toward our Livestream Ministry Project. We were able to purchase a Canon XA30 professional camcorder, a Teradek encoder, and a wireless microphone to help us be able to livestream / record video in our various ministry opportunities. We are so grateful for this special provision!

It is our prayer that we can encourage our BCP missionaries. Coming alongside them and being a friend, listener and encourager is crucial in these challenging ministry days. Our prayers are with Orlando and Debbie Collazo who are presently serving in Lorain, OH.

God Writes the Story

God Writes the Story

We recently met Kathy Hernandez and we realized we had several ministry connections! Years ago her husband, Valente Hernandez, started a ministry called OreMex, which later became OreMundo. In 2006 our son, Benjamin, went on a mission trip to Mexico with OreMundo. He returned saying, “We all need to go next year!” So, in 2007 our family and Kendra Settle (from our church in Virginia) went to Mexico on a mission trip with OreMundo. Because of that trip, the Lord opened our eyes to the Hispanics that were right in our “own mission field” in Virginia and we began to reach out to them. Since we wanted to better know how to reach Hispanics, Herb researched and found Baptist Church Planters and contacted their Hispanic Coordinator, David Whitcher. Over the next few years, David Whitcher came to our ministry in Front Royal, VA to encourage all of us at Skyline Baptist Church to lovingly reach out to the Hispanic community. As a result, the Lord began to burden our hearts for Hispanic ministries and in January 2010 we began serving with Baptist Church Planters and now we lead the BCP Hispanic Ministries. All of that to say, isn’t it amazing how the Lord can use the ministry of one person to touch another and another and another and HIS work goes on? AMAZING TO SERVE HIM!!!
