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.

Happy New Year from Perth
We are grateful to report that we are safely here in Perth, Western Australia. Thank you so much for your faithful prayers for us as we traveled a considerable distance. We are recovering from jet lag, unpacking and organizing, and generally getting settled in our new temporary housing situation here in Perth.
Our first impressions of Australia and Australians are very positive. We were able to spend a day and a half in Sydney between flights. We regret being too tired to ring in the New Year in Sydney. Jet lag got the better of us and we collapsed before the big fireworks were set off from Sydney Harbour Bridge. We slept soundly through the whole event. The next day we were able to visit the local zoo, so we'll hopefully get a chance to share those photos sometime.
Our official YWAM training program officially begins tomorrow night and we are looking forward to getting started. We'll report on that when we get a chance.
Our access to the Internet is very poor right now.
Thanks again for your faithfulness, prayers and encouragements!
