LATEST UPDATE


5-4-2017

Our Market Ministry has exploded with growth. God has wonderfully raised up 1200 workers who are passing out up to 100,000 bilingual Gospels of John each WEEK. New report coming soon...


Dear Christian Friends and co-labors,                                                     10/12/16


We are grateful we can represent you in giving the Gospel message here.  We are in the tenth year of sowing the Word of God in the massive flea markets on the Texas/Mexico border.  Seven hundred sowers from all parts of Mexico help us.  Many of these valiant witnesses have adopted the theme:

        “WE ARE INTERRUPTING LOST SINNERS ON THEIR WAY TO HELL”.  

 At eighty-six years of age, I can still remember the words of my dear Mother: “Bobby, don’t forget your manners – do not interrupt people”!). 

However, ---  we must make the choice of being socially ‘correct’, or being disobedient to Jesus! ---He commanded: “Ye shall be my witnesses -- – ‘Go ye into all the world’ --- ‘be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you’ -- JESUS INTERRUPTED ETERNITY WHEN HE STEPPED OUT OF HEAVEN – HE INTERRUPTED HISTORY WHEN HE CAME TO EARTH 

– HE INTERRUPTED SATAN’S PLAN TO DAMN EVERY MAN, AND HE WILL SOON INTERRUPT HUMANITY’S  SPIRAL TO DESTRUCTION WHEN HE COMES TO TAKE HIS CHILDREN HOME  --- (Yes, --- LOVE will interrupt! PRIDE doesn’t care)! 

Our sowers do not talk about religion! --- We have only five --- twenty seconds to ask “HOW MANY OF YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN?   

Most people reply:  “I do not know! --- only God knows”!  We inform them: “EITHER ALL OF YOUR SINS ARE FORGIVEN, OR NOT ONE OF YOUR SINS IS FORGIVEN”! --- (We invite them to read John 3:16  -- Acts 13:38,39).

Please pray for our SOWERS RALLY on Saturday, November 12th at our 77 Brownsville flea market.  We are expecting Christians from many parts of Mexico who will take tons of Scriptures to other parts of Mexico.

Your interrupting Missionaries, 

 ---Bob and Betty Sue Smith

CAN YOU HELP US LOCATE A MEDIUM- SIZE MINI HOME WE CAN BUY REASONABLY PRICED?  WE HAVE OPPORTUNITIES IN MANY BORDER LOCATIONS?


Dear Christian Friends and Co-labours,                                                                                                                                   4/24/2016

Betty Sue and I are celebrating with you this week.

    Because of God’s mercy and your prayers I am celebrating my 86th birthday (April 27th,1930).









   










No missionary has more faithful co-laborers than you. For fifty-six years in Peru, S. A. and Mexico, you have been by our side proclaiming Christ’s Gospel, planting churches and preparing God’s servants. 

    I wish each of you could be here for this week to celebrate with us.  Each day, we met in another border flea market with a different team.  We first met to pray for you, your church and YOU who read this letter, then we went out to sow the Word of God.

    Yesterday at the Brownsville flea market (Sunday, 24th), fifty of our sowers from Mexico and the border met to celebrate with us. First, we went out for four hours to witness and distribute the Word of God to the multitudes.  THEN WE REJOICED WITH TESTIMONIES AND TAMALES.  It was a high time when I announced that we had distributed l00,000 Scriptures this special week!  -- And the real dessert came when I announced we had signed up the 400th ‘sower’ to help us distribute the Word of God.

    Remember that we are always glad to hear from you with any question of God’s Work here.

     Your fellow servants and grateful missionaries,

         Bob and Betty Sue
















The ‘perfect storm’, socially, politically, economically, and racially is on our front door step –

ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!  Most American Christians don’t recognize by God’s sovereign 

design that this nation was entrusted with the privilege and responsibility to proclaim the 

eternal Gospel of our Creator – God to all men!  This border defines more than who we are 

physically, but as it is written in our Constitution, ‘who is our God and what are our responsibilities

to Him and to each other’.

Market Ministries 2007-Present         


     Missionaries Bob and Betty Sue Smith are celebrating fifty six years of mission service this year. “By God’s grace, He called us in 1960, and at this writing 3/19/16, we are telling the Gospel message to sinners and challenging God’s people to follow our Savior.
    Our story is told in the lives of you who for more than fifty years have prayed and shared your living so we can go and give the message of God’s grace.  We have had the privilege to go, because you have been faithful to ‘stay and send’.  We thank God for you who ‘hold the rope’ when the trail is hard.  We thank God for His churches who discerned our needs and met them, although you also had needs at home.   We thank God for you faithful Pastors who labor and sacrifice for the unity of a world-wide vision.
    In 1960 God called us to Latin America.  With our two small children we went to Peru, S.A.  For six years, we evangelized and founded Churches in the Central cities of Huancayo.  With other missionaries, we founded a Bible Institute to train Pastors and Leaders.
     In 1967, with my Brother Jerry and his family, we founded the first Baptist Church in the capital city of Ica, in Southern Peru.  This became the Seed of hundreds of churches which have continued to multiply.
     In 1970, God put us in the fast growing border city of Matamoros, Tamp. Mexico.  Here, we founded the Good Samaritan Mexican Baptist Institute where we have trained hundreds of Mexican Pastors. The first Church in 1970 (Peoples Baptist Church) grew to fifteen hundred members, and was used of God to send workers to many  unreached areas.
     In 1991, we founded the Maranatha Bible Center in Central Mexico at Moctezuma, San Luis Potosi.  This Center is used of God to evangelize hundreds of unreached villages, to train workers and establish youth camps. 
     Since 2007 we have been occupied in evangelism and Scripture distribution among the multitudes on both sides of the Mexico border.  At present, we are challenging God’s people with the unprecedented missionary opportunities to make known the Gospel here.
