We hope that God uses these updates to challenge you to do more for the cause of world missions

Liberty Baptist Church in Santiago, Chile continues to grow and urgently needs a larger building. We are currently praying about purchasing a piece of property near the church’s current location. Please pray! We need $125,000 for the land and building. This month, God has provided $11,150 for the property purchase! Praise the Lord! Would you pray about giving towards this need? Any gift can be sent to: Vision Baptist Missions, PO 442, Alpharetta, GA 30009, memo: Liberty Land Chile.

2020 has been filled with many unexpected turns of events. Among all the trials, God has done some amazing things in Chile! Here is a quick recap of the highlights from 2020:


    1. Carlos Fernandez and John Moncada were sent out of Liberty Baptist to plant churches in Santiago and Parral, Chile. God has blessed despite the quarantines. Dozens have been saved, and the works are growing. Praise the Lord, and thank you for praying and giving!

    2. The Chile Training Center quickly adapted to online classes back in mid-March. This allowed our training programs to continue throughout the COVID season. To our surprise, more students enrolled for training than ever! We ended the year with 85 students training for ministry! To God be the glory!

    3. We launched the website. Many have partnered with us in prayer and support for national pastors and church plants. I am excited about all those who are receiving our “Top 5 Friday” prayer request email. If you would like to sign up, click on the “Join the Team” tab on the website.

    4. Katherine, our daughter, turned 18 years old and moved into the girls’ dorm at the Our Generation Training Center in Alpharetta, GA. She is preparing to be a missionary! Lori and I are very proud of her. During her first month back in the USA, she has already led several to the Lord and taken them to church.

    5. God has given me the opportunity to serve as the Latin America Director for Vision Baptist Missions while living in Chile and leading the Chile Training Center and planting churches with young Chilean pastors. This gives us the opportunity to build a growing team of church-planting missionaries around Latin America. If you are interested in serving the Lord in Latin America, please contact me –
