If you receive financial help to go on mission, please give a report to the PBA or to the PBA Mission Priority Team at steve.fehrman@gmail.com. Here are some testimonies from PBA Church team members who received PBA mission funds in 2016.

    There is no doubt in my mind that the Lord went before us. Pastor Julio and Marisol made us feel so welcome that we were all calling it home. The opportunities for outreach there were many and diversified.

    Our first opportunity was in Viceroy. As we were getting underway for a VBS a man sat at one of our craft tables. Pastor Steve and Julio went to talk to him and eventually lead him to the Lord.

    The entire week serving there was so blessed because although we went to teach the children, the people in the neighborhood came out every day and listened to what we said, accepted snacks from us, bibles and crafts. The VBS was outside so we used a loud speaker to give the Gospel and played Christian music every day, it will not return void.

    A large majority of the population there were drug addicts or dealers or suffering from some other habit. I pray Pastor Julio continues to have a presence in that location and possibly build a church there soon.

    So glad we took a few teens to college age kids with us. They related so well with the children. The afternoon VBS had almost as many parents there as children. It was wonderful because they were so interested in everything. Many of the children accepted the Lord throughout the week. But the highlight for me was, Angel. He came on Wednesday. He accepted the Lord that day. On Friday when the bibles were given out you could see him in a chair reading his bible while the other children were running around saying their good-byes.

    I saw endless potential there but even greater than that… Jesus is at work! Thank you so much for assisting us with the funds. It takes so much of the burden of finances off of us. And it enables people to go who really don’t have the money but have the heart to go.

    I personally am so blessed to have been a part of this team!

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Tim Sayre and I am a member of Southern Calvert Baptist Church. This past April I had the privilege and honor of serving our Lord as a short term missionary to Los Mochis, Mexico. I would like to publicly thank the PBA for their financial support; because of their support and the generosity of friends and family, I have the financial means of going a second (and maybe more) time. A trip I look forward to finishing so I might help complete the project we initiated in April.

    It was truly a coordinated effort on the part of us going and those already there serving; because it was a construction project needing and using expertise in the concrete, electrical, painting and plumbing fields; and also because of the number of laborers, and helpers needed for the work. Because of our well-coordinated efforts, and God’s blessing on the effort made, I say with little hesitation that we accomplished more than we thought we would, and built relationships that I am confident in saying will last a very long time. More importantly we worked to further the cause of Christ and the universal church in a cross cultural manner in such a way that a more permanent relationship should come about over the months and years in which we pursue together a physical building for our brothers and sisters to worship, and plan their own form of evangelism in their immediate area and around the world.

    I hope you will consider joining us in this endeavor that is quite literally bigger then we can complete on our own. It would be a privilege to join hands helping those who need and anxiously look forward to working together with us.

    Tim

    Dear PBA Members,

    I would like to express my appreciation for your support in 2016 in all the various mission activities of the PBA.

    First, several members from my Church, Southern Calvert Baptist, received scholarships to go to Los Mochis, Mexico. Your support made it possible to construct a basketball / activities center, paint the church building, install bathrooms in the church and provide materials for VBS for over 250 children,

    in 2 locations.

    In addition, several other members from other PBA churches were helped to take the Gospel to the remotest parts of the world. I’m confident that I am speaking for each member and those who received ministry when I say thank you for your support. We pray that next year we can continue to take the soul saving gospel of our blessed Lord to the lost around the globe.

    Sincerely,

    Rev. Steve Fehrman

    Southern Calvert Baptist Church
