Travel with Pastor Paul to London to support the efforts of our IMB missionary Ross Ponders and Pastor Alex (Stratham Central Church) in planting this brand-new church in one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities in a neighborhood that is very similar to our community with immigrants and refugees from all over the world.
Missions is a LIFESTYLE where God’s mandate becomes our PRIORITY.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus commands us, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (NIV). One thing important to God, then, is the expansion of His Kingdom through a process called discipleship.
Jesus also told His disciples, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NIV). Thus, the expansion of God’s Kingdom through discipleship takes place in our neighborhoods, in our state, in our country, and in our world.
So what does this look like? We make God’s great commission our LIFESTYLE and our daily PRIORITY. That is, in our daily lives – as we are going – God’s commission transforms into one our largest priorities. This is Missions 365.

———————– UPCOMING MISSION TRIPS 2024 ———————–
Travel to the city of Otavalo, over 8,000 feet up in the mountains of Ecuador, to support the work done by Word of Life Ecuador missionaries, Emiliano Vitti and Daniel Gonzalez, in the churches around the Quichua indigenous communities. Activities will include VBS, church evangelism, and more. On our Tour Day, we will visit volcanos and the Middle of the Earth Museum (Ecuador Line at 0° latitude).
Provide support, assistance, and encouragement to NAMB Church Planter, pastor Luis Rodriguez, in the small city of Aibonito, in the mountains of Puerto Rico. We will concentrate our efforts during the annual “Festival of Flowers” and provide some training and encouragement to this young pastor’s family and church. Go on this very short trip that has both an international flavor as well as a feeling of being at home!
This is a “construction/renovation” kind of trip. Helps us provide some needed care and improvements to the Word of Life Camp in Honduras. No major projects are expected, so no “professional skills” are needed! We will put together some benches, and playground sets, and do some painting and beautification on the property under the guidance of well-prepared people and our WOL Honduras Samuel Sierra.
We will work alongside our WOL Cordoba missionary, Mauro Bravo, in the “Centro Renacidos” (Born Again Center), a place for young men to seek support and assistance, while dealing with all kinds of addictions, while being healed physically but also spiritually. Come alongside Pastor Nick Colton to serve and be the “hands and feet of Jesus”!
This is a “construction/renovation” kind of trip. We will be coming alongside our partners at Word of Life France, to bring some very needed and overdue repairs and renovations to their Camp property located just outside Paris. Under the guidance of our own Jeremy Dane, we will tackle a few projects to help WOL France better serve the young men and women from France, and many other locations in Europe, who come to them seeking to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus and how to serve Him better!
