And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)
Newly endorsed American Baptist International Ministries (IM) missionaries Sarah Nash, Jae Stockton and Marlene Po were welcomed to the ABCUSA Mission Center by Rev. Dr. Lee B. Spitzer, General Secretary on Thursday morning, June 22, 2017. “American Baptists should be excited that God is calling a new generation of missionary servants to share the good news of Jesus through words and deeds all across the globe,” Dr. Spitzer said. “It is my hope that our American Baptist family will support our newly endorsed missionaries, through our prayers and offerings.”
Sarah Nash has been endorsed to serve as a ministry of education, discipleship and health at a new extension of the House of Hope in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Jae Stockton joins IM as an information technologist who will support ministries of theological education, evangelism and discipleship through the Baja Baptist Seminary in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. Marlene Po is a newly appointed IM Associate, in partnership with Central Baptist Theological Seminary, who is serving as Director of the FOUNDATIONS Judson Communities training program for pastors and leaders of congregations serving immigrants from Burma.
