Missions Fund Report
Issue Date: March/April 2017
The Chick Missions Fund works with a number of organizations in India. One of those organizations is People’s Baptist Ministry to India (PBMI). Working on a very large scale across India, these brethren have won over 250,000 Indians to Jesus Christ, planting over 2,700 churches.
In 2016, the Chick Mission Fund provided 100,000 Chick tracts for PBMI’s big summer outreach. Their Bible school students, instead of going home for summer break, went to 29 of India’s 30 states to hand out tracts, conduct street and cottage meetings, and go door to door to reach their country with the Gospel. By year-end, they reported seeing over 17,000 Indians come to the Lord, and another 75 churches started.
Missionary Daniel LaVita (Bible Baptist Missions) has received thousands of tracts. He writes, “many here in La Ceiba know we have them and they come looking for us, we usually hear how much they liked them and now they want to give some to their relatives, even the backslidden. Worldly Christians ask us if they can help to give them out.
Other groups charge for their materials or have some kind of string attached so the people can be a little hesitant at times, but when we tell them they are free, they all seem relieved and give us a big smile.”
Missionary Ray Hoover receives a steady supply of tracts through the Mission Fund. He travels around, visiting many small villages. He also supplies local believers who help him pass out tracts. He writes: “There is a young man from Uganda who came to our church a few months ago. He said that two of our evangelists had given him a tract and led him to Christ and now he had decided that he should come and be part of our church. For the last several weeks he has started discipleship classes with Bro. Teddy and is doing fine.”
Missionary Danny Flowers (Baptist International Missions) uses Chick tracts here. He writes: “I took them to the entry of a huge rock festival last week and they were very well received. Praying that the Lord uses them.
Missionary Mike Wallace writes: “They are so well accepted here in Mexico City and there is over 20 million people in the city and other 16 million around the edge of the city. We have had some people approach us here saying they received Christ after receiving the tracts that we gave them —those that you sent. As we walk down the streets passing out tracts, we see people reading them as we go; and upon our return we often see them still reading them. I had a man approach me with tears in his eyes not too long ago saying he got saved after reading a tract”. “These tracts are a HUGE, HUGE blessing and very well received here. We don’t always have to offer a Chick tract to people here as they often come to us and ask us for one.
Missionary Robert Taylor gives out Esta Fue Tu Vida (This Was Your Life) along with a copy of the book of Romans. He writes: “I have been doing this for 41 years, and this combination is the most powerful evangelizing tool that I have ever used. It revolutionized our evangelistic outreach here in Mexico.”
Missionaries Bill and Janet Eubanks continue to preach and distribute Chick tracts in the schools of Zimbabwe. The students are brought outside in a group, and hear the Gospel, and are given a Chick tract. Bill reports that huge numbers of school children have accepted the Lord.
Missionary Andrew Schultz writes: “The tracts have been a huge blessing and are very helpful in our ministry there in the bush.”
