#005 – Evangelist Joe West Promoting Missions in our Home Churches

 photo DSC_8178_zps111ed321.jpgEvangelist Joe West founded the Town East Baptist Church of San Antonio, Texas.  He remained there as the pastor for thirty-three years until God called him into evangelism to promote missions.  He has a special way of speaking that draws you into his kindness, and then the Holy Spirit does His convicting work to let you know how you need to get involved in missions in a way you never imagined.

Evangelist Joe West specializes in Faith Promise Missions Conferences.  I met him while on deputation in 2001, and I thank God for allowing our paths to cross.  I consider this man to be one of my friends, and I am so excited about this interview.

#004 – Dr. Don Sisk Teaching Young Missionaries from 50 Years of Experience

 photo DrSisk_zps227d9e9c.jpg
This interview was recorded on the 57th anniversary of Dr. Don Sisk’s ordination to the Gospel Ministry!

Dr. Sisk was a missionary to Japan for ten years!

Then, he was the BIMI Far East Director for ten years working to establish BIMI as a recognized organization in many countries.  Brother Sisk was a pioneer missionary working to open the door to allow missionaries to go to countries that otherwise would have been closed to the Gospel.

Following that, for nineteen years he served as the President and General Director of BIMI.  God used this man to help recruit, train, encourage, support, and keep missionaries on the field for almost two decades.  Brother Sisk is now  the President Emeritus of BIMI.

http://www.bimi.org/content/abSisk.php

Ten years ago, God called him to train young missionaries to go to the field.  He has been serving the Lord in this capacity as the Chairman of the Missions Department of West Coast Baptist College.

He speaks almost weekly in Missions Conferences around the United States, and he has an amazing burden to reach the lost with the Gospel.

#003 – Dennis Glenon – Missionary to Arctic Miners

 photo 536_zpsbe93a722.jpgBrother Dennis Glenon has been in Canada as a missionary to the boom town, Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.  Anyone who can go to this hard, cold, and distant place and stay as long as he has is truly a Missionary On Fire! You will love this kind man and his burden for lost souls.

Brother Glenon surrendered to preach in a Joe Boyd tent meeting!  He was a runaway and lived with migrant workers.  He was stabbed, and the Catholic priest gave him his last rites after a fight on the streets of Detroit.  Many people would have written him off!  God, however, had a plan for Brother Glenon!  It is an amazing story!

#002 – Frank Drown Mission to the Headhunters

 photo FrankMarieDrown_zpscf9d7791.jpgIt is my great privilege to introduce you to Frank and Marie Drown!  They have been friends of my family for many years, and I am honored to have them as the first guests on Missionary on Fire!

Frank and Marie Drown went to the mission field in 1944, and have done great things for the Lord in these many years.  Frank was influential in the the call of God on the life of Roger Youderian.  Frank and Roger worked side by side for several years.  When Operation Auca seemed to have failed with the deaths of Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, and Roger Youderian, Frank was the one who was called to search for their bodies. It was Frank who prayed and read the Word of God over their hastily dug graves in the jungles of Ecuador.  Frank and Marie worked closely with the wives of these men as they worked to reach the headhunters of Ecuador.

I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did!

Quote:
“Knowing the need of a people that are lost and have no Bible or anyone telling them about the Gospel is enough to make you want to leave home, learn a language, and communicate the Gospel to the people who need it most.” – Missionary Frank Drown

Bible Verse:
Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Failure and Lessons:
Listen as Missionary Frank Drown tells about his first attempt to preach the Gospel to a group of headhunters.  He started to tell them about John 3:16 but could not keep their attention.  He was able to reach them, but you have to hear him tell how he was able to communicate the Gospel to these people.

Memories:
He has fond memories of many experiences, and he tells us one of his favorites about Chief Santiago!  Listen to Missionary Frank Drown tell us how the Gospel changed this man’s life.

Can you tell us about the moment you realized why God called you to the mission field?
Missionary Frank Drown thanks God for his childhood experiences of fox hunting and for being short.

Goals as a missionary:
Missionary Frank Drown tells about how the introduction of Missions Aviation greatly improved his ability to reach more people with the gospel.  Marie tells us about their prayer that the headhunters would quit headhunting and how Chief Santiago was instrumental in the peace coming to the jungle!

What if you were a young person today and felt God calling you to the mission field?
Missionary Frank Drown tells about how he would prepare to go to the mission field.

Resources:
Through Gates of Splendor

Mission to the Headhunters

John and Betty Stam: A story of triumph

J. Hudson Taylor God’s Man in China

The Life and African Exploration of David Livingstone

Contact:
You can contact them to order their books, which I highly recommend reading.  Frank is a great story teller! The names of their books are Mission to the Head Hunters and Unmarked Memories.

Farewell:
Study God’s Word and ask God to speak to us and then just be surrendered to do the will of God no matter where He sends you.
