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

Rejoice with Us!
Rejoice with us! Please join us in thanking our Heavenly Father that our outreach fees were paid in full and on time!
There were some that expressed that they didn't believe we would have the fees we needed on time—instead we were abundantly blessed beyond our hopes. We thank God for all of you who prayed for us and encouraged us while we waited for these finances to come in. Thank you to those of you that God lead to provide for our need. This is super exciting to report! Not only were we able to pay our outreach fees! Your amazing and timely generosity also provided us some other funds on our prayer list of needs to be paid before we left on our outreach trip:
1.) Our children's Australian school tuition and fees which ended up being considerably more expensive than previously reported (double what we expected!)
2.) An Australian approved home school curriculum that we can use while on our big outreach trip and no matter where we end up later this year! This affordable home school curriculum is also saving us from paying more high tuition fees in the future!
So you can see that God is very good to us and so are all of you! We are most grateful to you all.
May we ask you one more thing? We will be leaving for Papua New Guinea in about 2 ½ weeks. It is a developing country north of Australia with many needs and a lot of witchcraft and occult activity. During this time we will not have Internet or cellphone access of any kind. Will you please pray for us regularly during this time? Our hope is to boldly make God known as we serve the local villages in the Gulf Province west of Port Moresby. We will be posting a more extensive prayer list to our blog later this month or you may request one by emailing us.

Lastly, we want to give a special shout out of thanks to the Evangelical Free Church of East Dennis that provided us a special trip to the Perth Zoo. We had a blast and thank you for your special gift designated for us to have a break from our routine here. Photos from our big day at the zoo can be seen on our Facebook photo album page. Thanks you guys!
