Discussions continue at Dalton Hill Baptist Church to try to find new ways to support Adam & Natasha Perryman’s Mission to Uganda. They have a website www.LuketMinistries.com with a link on that website to their giving site, GivingFire.
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field."
And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the HOly Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of age."
I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord. I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart; I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation; I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.
Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of His own purpose and grace, which He gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Saviour Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that He is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.
WORD OF THE WEEK
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
On November 9, 1906, the Baptist General Convention of Indian Territory held its last session at the First Baptist Church of Shawnee. On the same day, the Oklahoma Baptist State Convention held its final session at the First Methodist Church of Shawnee. At a prearranged time, the two conventions then met, formed a line, marched two-by-two to the Shawnee Opera House and there formed the Baptist General Convention of the State of Oklahoma.
Just as the two conventions had worked separately to take the gospel to all the world, the newly organized Baptist General Convention adopted this same mission philosophy. The convention continued dual alignment with both the Northern and Southern Baptist Conventions until 1914 when it voted “single alignment” with the Southern Baptist Convention. From its humble beginning in 1906, with 882 churches and 40,617 members, the Convention has continued to grow and in 2014 there were 1813 congregations with 614,882 members.
Eight Executive Directors have given leadership to this great convention since 1906, beginning with J. C. Stalcup. Taking office in 1996, Anthony Jordan now leads this unique mission force of cooperating missionary churches.
The Convention’s mission spirit and its cooperation in taking the whole Gospel to the whole world is demonstrated in its partnership with Colorado, Guerrero Mexico, and the Land of Lottie. The mission to evangelize and congregationalize all of Oklahoma is manifested in its cooperative outreach to African Americans as well as ethnic groups. Oklahoma Baptists worship in more than 29 languages weekly. Oklahoma Baptists continue to work together with local churches, associations, state conventions and the Southern Baptist Convention to fulfill the Great Commission.

This website is dedicated to the work and memory of Sarah Adams, who came to Malawi as a missionary in 2006 and tragically died in a car accident in Africa in 2013 along with Young Life workers Wanangwa Sanga and Lusayo Mhango.
Sarah was known for her infectious smile, and lived by her motto “Everyday Love Changing Everyday Lives”. She truly loved everyone she met, and showed her love in practical, life-changing ways.
Sarah was passionate about the youth of Malawi, and worked as a Young Life missionary and also as a volunteer at Samaritan Trust Shelter for Street Children.
As a volunteer, Sarah worked with kids of all ages, giving counseling, sound advice, mentorship, and organizing weekly activities where kids could forget the stresses of their everyday lives and just have fun being kids.
Sarah’s mission was that these kids would feel unconditionally loved, and Sarah’s close relationships with the kids were a testament to the true, deep friendships she formed.
Sarah also worked to develop future leaders in Malawi. Many of those she mentored are now leading themselves, and are motivated by Sarah’s legacy of unconditional love & acceptance.
Drew & Christine Van Tiem
Tulsa Metro Baptist Network is an association of one hundred and sixty-one Southern Baptist churches in Tulsa and its surrounding communities.
Our network is a church-focused responding association whose only purpose is to add value to its member churches by resourcing their vision to fulfill the Great Commission. The churches in our network serve a growing and dynamic urban community of more than one million people scattered across five counties!
The Tulsa metro area has one of the most diverse, multicultural populations for a city of its size in the nation! God is working through our churches to push back the darkness with the gospel of Jesus Christ--beginning in the beautiful city of Tulsa and going to the ends of the earth!
Drew and Christine met while working
together on a team in Salford, England.
After two years there, they both
returned to the Chicago area and were
married a year later. Their plan was
always to return to United Kingdom to
do mission in an urban environment. Thus, they are extremely thankful and pleased to be working in Edinburgh, a fantastic city they love more and more as they get to know it. They have a lot of similar interests – reading, hiking, cooking, history, and board games. But they have dissimilar interests, too – Christine enjoys knitting and running and Drew enjoys hockey and writing. They moved to Edinburgh in Spring 2013 and are working with Mosaic Edinburgh, a recently planted church working towards impacting different networks and neighbourhoods of the city.
