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.

Prayer Changes Things
More than anything right now the Baldwins really need prayer. We have been under such spiritual attack since we have made the decision to follow our Lord into frontier missions, it's as if the enemy didn't want us to go and do it! He's pulling out all the stops.
One thing that would help is to create a group who might meet to pray regularly with us and for us. This wouldn't be the sole purpose of our prayer time, but one of our mutual prayer goals. We would also pray with you for you and other agendas such as the conversion of the heathen in foreign lands and a spirit of repentance to fall on Americans. You know, the usual. :)
Lately I've been reading about how all great missions endeavors were born out of prayer meetings. Allyson and I have certainly been praying. We also know that people all over the globe are praying for us. We are encouraged. My old pastor Creighton in Groton used to hang out a banner that said “Prayer Changes Things.” I have never forgotten it.
Peter Carpentier has offered that we could meet at the North Shore Ministries space at the Cummings Center in Beverly. I also have permission to use a space here at the North Shore Community Baptist Church. Now all I need are a few folks willing to meet with us as often and as regularly as possible. How about you? Perhaps a Monday or a Tuesday morning meeting? What works best for you? Also, both Allyson and I could be available at different times with different groups.
The other option is to identify another missions-minded group that is already praying and to join forces with them. What do you know? (I'm a big believer in not re-inviting the wheel if you don't have to...)
He is Risen.
