Welcome to the Baldwin Boomerang
We long to see people in every tribe, tongue and nation transformed for God's glory. Our mission is to share the gospel by producing effective, compelling media tools that people can understand in their own culture and language. We are preparing to serve as full-time media missionaries with Create International. Toward that end we completed an extensive missions training program called a Crossroads DTS at YWAM Perth, Australia and a secondary YWAM school called the School of Frontier Media in Thailand. We are currently on furlough in North America and hope to see you face-to-face in 2010!
Support Information: Our support goal is currently near 50%.
You may send gifts and donations for our support to our sending agency Ripe for Harvest and please designate Account #247 in the memo line without including our name on the check. You may then mail the check directly to:
Ripe for Harvest, P.O. Box 487, Monument, CO 80132
PLEASE note new address.
It can take up to a month and a half for us to see your donation show up on our report. Also, Ripe for Harvest is able to issue a tax deductible receipt in the USA, but YWAM in Thailand is not.
If you want to be added to our newsletter list or have additional questions, email us at baldwinboomerang @ gmail dot com

Yes, prayer would be good, thanks
I am not kidding. If there were no other signs that we are on the right track preparing for the mission field, the fact that we have been under attack since moving would be enough. It hasn't been unbearable - just constant. Here's a sampling:
A major check we were waiting for since the end of December - lost in the mail TWICE and finally had to be hand delivered - in February.
All three kids have been sick or fighting something since we moved in.
Speaking of fighting - there's been a lot of it. Conflict all over the place. Its not pretty.
And just yesterday: Steve's data base of addresses that he has been working on for years that we are about to utilize for our support materials - LOST. (I don't want to exaggerate - he was able to find an old archive and recover a percentage of it - but still... come on.) Not to mention that we wanted to start sending out materials in January and still haven't sent a single letter.
It hasn't been all bad. We did have a fun evening with our good friends Karl and Brad shooting photos and video for our support materials. And we've had nice visits and lots of confirmation that we are on the path we should be. So, attack or no attack we are still really excited and are convinced that we're doing the right thing. After all, "the Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen." (2 Tim. 2:18)
