How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Romans 10:14-15
The B Family
We have the great privilege of serving the Lord in the Middle East. Our team has been invited by several local pastors to come and begin a training center that will instruct Arabic-speaking believers in theology, expository preaching and biblical counseling. Once the center is established, our prayer is that believers from all over the region will be able to come and receive training that would be difficult or impossible to obtain in their own countries. Our desire is to continue the pattern of teaching faithful men set forth by Paul in 2 Timothy 2:2. While pursuing this goal we will be serving in a local church where we will seek to encourage and strengthen the believers just as we would in the U.S.
* Please pray for the Lord’s provision as we raise financial support to move overseas.
* Pray for wisdom and grace as we apply for visas in the coming months.
* Please pray for our family, especially our children as we are going through a lot of transitions and traveling much more.

Why does the Adopt a Pastor Project exist?
The experience of fifty-five years on the mission field, with ministries ranging from a pioneer boat ministry on the Amazon River to church planting and publishing in Brazil's modern cities, has caused us to become increasingly aware that the greatest need of the Brazilian church is national leadership solidly grounded in the often neglected Biblical truths that spawned the Reformation.
While numerically the church has grown during this half century, much of it is due to the application of church growth methods which have not produced a regenerate membership.
The opportunity is before us to provide spiritual training for these soldiers who are mostly without the guidance of sound teaching. Through providing theological books and hosting conferences, we can show loving concern for our brethren who are in need of spiritual help.
A Brazillian pastor wrote: "I have seen through this ministry the possibility for change in the evangelical churches of Brazil and even in our society." It is this hope that encourages us to press on even in the face of adversity. There are still victories to be won.

How the project works
Many churches have fallen into doctrinal error for
want of leadership grounded in sound Biblical doctrine. To help meet this need,
FIEL Publishing House (a non-profit Brazilian ministry under the umbrella of
CLA) initiated the AAP project, one of four interrelated FIEL ministries,
through which a sponsor can help provide tools that will impact a pastor's life
Through donations, AAP provides the adopted pastor with ministerial help by:
Sending him one book a month Sponsors receive a yearly report with the names of the books sent to their pastor. Click on Publications above for a sample of books being sent to pastors.
Enabling him to attend FIEL's annual conference for pastors and leaders
Sponsors are always welcome to attend the conference and meet their adopted pastor.
AAP is committed to maintain a pastor in the project for a minimum of three years.
By sponsoring a pastor, you will be blessed by the fruit you will see in the life of the pastor, his family, and his flock.

The Right Vision
Training Indigenous Church Leaders
We aspire to make a major contribution toward the phenomenal need for effective church leaders around the globe, who will be committed to the truth of scripture in their various ministries.
According to statistics from the U.S. Center for World Missions there is a trained church leader for every 230 people in the U.S. However, there is but one trained church leader for every 450,000 people in the rest of the world!
The Right People
Carefully Selected Candidates For Training
We are committed to the training of church leaders within the context of their own country and culture to enable them to accurately handle God's Word and lead their church in the joyful pursuit of following Jesus Christ. However, the list of those trained is focused by choosing people already proven in their commitment to ministry and having godly character.
With the time and resources that it takes to train one person in the U.S. to be sent abroad, on an average at least thirty people can be trained in their own country!
The Right Strategy
Common Theology By The Teaching Team With An
Intentional Focus On Biblical Exposition
We deploy godly gifted people and biblically sound training materials to invest in equipping others who are capable of repeating the process.
Presently among the nations approximately 4,000 new churches are born each week. That number is projected to reach 12,000 per week, within three years. Well trained leaders are drastically needed in order to establish these new churches in the Word of God.
The intent is to establish the ability to prayerfully and diligently approach the Word of God for the purpose of understanding the teaching and insights and then ordering life and conduct accordingly. Their teaching then flows out of the joy and pursuit of the Lord and His Word. That leads to godly people leading the church to be students and practitioners of Biblical insights as well.
The Right Results
Presently over 1,000 people have already been trained
and 700 churches impacted.
We maximize financial and material resources by investing directly where the need is greatest. This investment results in faithful, well trained men who lead others to the eternal praise of God - people "from every tribe and tongue and nation."
The more than one thousand pastors and leaders trained represent the strengthening of more than 700 churches. Additionally new churches are being established.
"For from Him, and through Him,
and to Him are all things. To God be
the glory forever and ever, Amen!"
