Sponsoring Conferences in Developing Countries
As a partner in the International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries, the GARBC seeks to encourage and assist international churches and associations. Each year Director Chris Hindal responds to requests to plan and speak at regional IPFBM conferences and association meetings. Since most of our partners are in developing countries, they are not able to host these conferences without subsidy. The host association contributes funds, but in order to conduct a conference, our fellowship needs to contribute $500–1,000 per conference.
If you see the value of encouraging and linking arms with our international brothers and sisters, your contribution to this fund will make a difference. Onetime gifts are always appropriate, and monthly support of this fund adds up significantly. On the donation page, select “International Partnership” as your designation, or send a check to: GARBC International Ministries, 1300 N. Meacham Road, Schaumburg IL 60173. Write “International Partnership” on the memo line.
Praise: Truck and Trailer for Disaster Relief
A year has passed since Baptist Builders Club announced its new disaster relief ministry. Director Michael Nolan conveys an answer to prayer: “We have purchased a truck and a trailer and are purchasing supplies to fill the trailer. A local organization has graciously offered to sell us supplies at a discount. Additionally, members of a GARBC church whose employer offers surplus supplies for free or at a major discount have offered to donate these items to BBC–USA. A goal that once seemed so far away has come to fruition through prayers and donations. We are now ready to go when the next disaster strikes!”
