Bobby Being Interviewed by a Cancun TV Channel
Bobby being interviewed by the television channel in Cancun about the Mayan Indians. This is part of a series on the Mayan Indians. They have been told that it will show around the world. We give God all the glory for His Word being proclaimed in the deep jungles of Mexico. All of this ministry has been proof of what can happen when churches join together for the works of the Lord! Thanks to Laurens Baptist Association and all of its 53 churches!!!
Truck Driver Ministry Information from Tee Achee
My Name is Tee Achee (Men's Ministry Coordinator Marie Baptist Church) I work with the Truck Stop Ministries Inc. based in Jackson Ga., which was started by a trucker by the name of Joe Hunter. Being an over the road trucker, Joe often found himself in a city away from home on Sundays, and being a born-again Christian, he wanted to attend Church and fellowship with other Christians. More often than not, there wasn't a church where he could park his rig. Since he was hauling very expensive loads at the time it wasn't feasible to leave the truck and ride to church. After spending 20 years over the road, his runs changed to where he was home on weekends, and in March of 1981, Joe went to the local Truckstops of America location, in the Atlanta area and asked permission to have a Bible study on Sunday mornings for the drivers that were laid over there. It was granted immediately and what is not known throughout the United States as Truckstop Ministries, Inc. was formed. We Currently have Chapel services in 85 locations in 29 States. Joe and his wife Jan, travel to as many of the location as they can each year.
I have an awesome Mission Opportunity to present to you:
We have partnered with the LBA and a local Friendly Gus on I-16 exit 54 to conduct a Truckers Fellowship Meeting. There are more than 3 million over-the-road truck drivers in America and many of them pass by your backyard every day. Many of these drivers are hungry to hear GOD's Word and hungry for Christian fellowship. A typical truck stop parks about 400 trucks whit a turnover of about every 6 hours. This means a potential of 1,600 driver a day or over 11,000 drivers a week. that's a lot of souls that need to hear about JESUS!
This is a tremendous Mission Field!
I pray that each of you will give me the opportunity to tell you about this opportunity we have to share JESUS in this community. Please feel free to email me or call me for more information.
In the meantime these are just a few areas we need assistance to get this new and exciting Ministry off the ground:
1. The first way you can help is with Prayer, which is the most important.
2. The second way is with your time. We need:
Whatever position you feel led to serve, we will train you before you are sent out alone. Thank you May GOD Bless you and your Ministries.
