    I recorded the video update above for our Lancaster Baptist church family yesterday. I’m currently in another country, and I will not be updating on our meetings here. But I asked my staff to post this video for friends around the country who are praying for us. I appreciate your prayers, and it’s been exciting to see God answer them as our team has seen Him work in powerful ways this week. We look forward to being home soon.

  2. Missions Trip Update from the Philippines

    After a few days in Korea, our team traveled on to the Philippines where we have met with several missionaries and pastors and seen great fruit to the glory of God.

    On Saturday we had the privilege of going out soulwinning into a neighboring village with missionaries Rick and Becky Martin. I am humbled by the sacrifice, humility, and faithfulness of the Martins and their family. They have ministered here in Iloilo for over thirty-five years, and yet, they personally are still ministering directly to the very needy people of this country. They have not only trained young Filipinos to minister and plant churches, but they themselves are out every week going into neighborhoods, soulwinning, holding kids Bible clubs, planting churches—loving people and sharing Christ’s love.

    Please continue to pray for our missionaries and to support them to take the Gospel of Christ to places around the world.

  3. Thoughts from Down Under

    Terrie and I have had the privilege of ministering in Australia for several days. We are wrapping up our meetings today and tomorrow in Rock Hampton, Australia, with Pastor Robert Bakss. It has been a great privilege to participate in several services during which God’s hand has been very evident.

    Sometimes when you’re away from home it is a little easier to gain perspective on some of the great things God is doing around the world. Following are some thoughts the Lord gave me in my devotional time this morning: (more…)

  4. Update from Costa Rica

    Thank you for your prayers for our missions trip in Central America. It has been an awesome privilege to see the doors God is opening here and to be involved in what God is doing in this needy part of the world.

    The video below shares some of the incredible ministry opportunities we’ve had in El Salvador and Costa Rica. Please continue to pray for us and for our missionaries. Terrie and I look forward to being back in the States this week.

  5. There’s No Place Like Home!

    September 18, 2010 by Paul Chappell

    It’s great to be back home and with our Lancaster Baptist Church family! It was a blessing this morning to attend our soulwinning faithfulness rally, and I can hardly wait for tomorrow’s services. I look forward to preaching and to being with the greatest people in the world.

    Terrie and I enjoyed our time together these past weeks to reflect on thirty years of marriage. I’m so thankful for the godly wife the Lord has given me. Her love for the Lord and for me has a greater impact on the ministry here than anyone—including Terrie—will ever know.

    It was great as well to spend time with Larry and Ashley and Ashley’s parents. We’re thankful for the healing the Lord has given Larry these past several months. Seeing him feeling well and able to enjoy this trip was an answer to many prayers by friends all around the world. Please continue to keep him in your prayers as he has his monthly checkups.

    On our trip, we followed the missionary journeys of Paul through part of the Mediterranean region. We learned so much and were greatly challenged to realize what God accomplished through Paul’s faithful preaching and witness in pagan cultures. As our own culture continues to morally deteriorate, I’m encouraged to remember what God can do by His Spirit through yielded soulwinners. I truly believe that we live in a day of unsurpassed ministry opportunities, and I believe the greatest days of ministry are yet ahead!
