Bobbi Hess to Lead Cookie Ministry

Posted by Rick on December 14, 2016

Bobbi Hess has agreed to lead the Cookie Ministry of Immanuel Southern Baptist Church.

The Cookie Ministry provides cookies to the inmates of the Wagoner County Jail as a direct response to the words of Jesus that said, “I was in prison and you didn’t visit me.”

The Cookie Ministry provides a bag of cookies (and sometimes candy) along with a salvation tract. Over the past few years, several inmates have written to the church expressing their gratefulness at being remembered and to indicate they have put their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Pakistan Partnership

Posted by Rick on June 17, 2015

ISBC has entered into a partnership with a church and orphanage in Pakistan. They have changed their name to Immanuel Baptist Church in Pakistan. They are extremely focused on church planting among the minority groups in Eastern Pakistan.

Their orphanage is New Hope Christian School and Orphanage. It provides room and board for street kids in Punjab province. They have a Facebook page with more information here.

Pray for the leadership of ISBP and NHCS as they build God’s kingdom in a dark and dangerous land.

Email the pastor for information about how you can become involved with this partnership.

2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal Announced

Posted by Rick on November 4, 2010

The International Mission Board has announced that the 2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal is $175 million!  Our church goal is $1000.00.

The 2010 theme is “Are We There Yet?

The following is taken directly from the IMB website:

Are we there yet?

When it comes to reaching a lost world for Christ, some may wonder how far we’ve come and how much farther to go.

Today, we can identify the people groups that remain untouched by the Gospel. For the first time, it is conceivable that all people groups can be reached in the coming years with a Gospel presence. According to IMB’s 2009 statistical data* there were 506,019 baptisms, 204,192 churches. Church membership overseas was at 10.7 million, and there were 24,650 new churches.

Yes, there is still a long way to go, but progress is being made every day.

Now is the time to also take a fresh look at the challenges ahead and be ready to finish the task. With 45,560 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention, there is much work to be done.

Here’s a global snapshot of the work ahead of us:

* 4,743 people groups are not engaged at all with the Gospel

* 6,426 unreached people groups (those with less than 2 percent of people who profess to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ)

* 1.7 billion with little or no access to the Gospel

* 1.5 billion Muslims – 22 percent of the world’s population

* 950 million Hindus in the world

* Christian witness among China cities less than 1 percent

* 3 percent evangelical believers among Ethiopia’s 82 million people

* 355 million in South America do not know Christ

* Less than 1 percent Christian among more than 270 million living in the Central Asia region

* 650,000 Lezghi in the Causcasus Mountains fear evil spirits

* 97 percent of all Palestinians are Muslim

* 89 percent of North African and Middle Eastern people groups are unreached

* 311 people groups in India have no known evangelical believers

* Only 1,600 believers among 1.6 million Muong of Northern Vietnam

 

A little overwhelming isn’t it?

he task is doable, but it will take all of us – our churches, our missionaries, our national partners, our Great Commission partners.

Are we there yet? Not quite. But we’re on our way.

Update from Abbotts

Posted by Rick on June 7, 2010

We received the following email from Bryan Abbott today:

****

Greetings All,

We are back in Palu! After leaving Wagoner at 7am Wednesday morning we arrived at our front door in Palu at 10 pm Friday, Palu time. God intervened for us in amazing ways at the start of our trip as we had a nice ticket agent that did not even mention charging us for a couple of bags that we knew were overweight, even thought he was very strict with a couple right in front of us in line.

The remainder of the trip was a little bumpy, but praise the Lord, we have made it home! Mikayla began showing signs of strep throat on our longest flight from Miniapolis to Tokyo, but Melissa came prepared with antibiotics!

We had some trouble in Singapore with our tickets being dated incorrectly for our connecting flight and we missed that flight but were able to get on another flight 3 hours later and arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia, with enough time to book a flight and get all our bags checked in. We were not as fortunate with our ticket agent in Jakarta and paid for about 200lbs in overweight bags. (Indonesia airlines only allow one 40lb bag per person, and we had six, 50lb bags! ) We were very tired by the time we got on the plane to Palu and the kids had some panic moments when the kids woke up to find themselves on yet another airplane. However, with the time difference, even though it was 10pm in Palu, the kids were wide awake on Tulsa time of 9am when we arrived at our house in Palu. Melissa and I were ready to collapse, but the kids wanted to go PLAY with their dog!

Thanks for your continued prayers as we continue to adjust and rest in the Lord. Mikayla is doing better health wise, but Andrew is now sick.

More updates will follow soon, but as of now, we still do not have internet at our house so email and skype will be limited for a few days.

We love you all.

Resting in His Hands and thankful to be HOME,

Bryan
