We are always amazed at how the Lord brings His people together around the world! Our good friends, the Zimmers, are missionaries to the small island of Yap, located in the Micronesian islands. They have served there for the past 14 years, reaching the islanders and starting a local church. Recently, we were very fortunate to visit with the Zimmer family on their furlough to the States.
We met Mark and Diane Zimmer and their children on our previous trip to Yap in 2011 (link to the right) and our hearts were knit together right away on our mutually-shared philosophy - disciple national pastors to reach nationals for the Gospel. Mark and Diane pastor Yap Baptist Church, a growing church on the main island of Yap, and disciple several pastors who have also started churches on the outer islands of Yap. Pastor Rollence, who we provided a coconut press for as a tentmaking opportunity to support himself (link to the right), was discipled under Mark to become one of these national outer island pastors. The Zimmers continue to disciple Pastor Rollence and other men in hopes to eventually leave Yap Baptist Church in the capable hands of trained national pastors.
As the Lord works on the hearts of the islanders in miraculous ways, Yap Baptist Church has grown a need for an expansion of their existing church building to support the growing church body. Your generous donations have allowed us to provide the remaining need for this expansion and remodel! The new addition will provide much needed additional seating, as well as class space in the exisiting structure which will be remodeled to create better flow between the new and old buildings. We hope to travel soon to Yap to assist in this project! We are confident that the Lord is doing a great work through the Zimmers and their faithful love and discipleship of the Yapese people. We cannot wait to see all that God does with the expansion of this church as He continues to add souls to His family of dedicated brothers and sisters in Christ.
