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.

Atheism & the Royal Thai Police

Just a quiet little post to let you all know that all is well here in Thailand. We have been exceedingly busy with the School of Frontier Media and are now more than half way through the lecture phase of the program. The girls are now starting to make their plans to come home to the states while I gear up for the outreach to the Shan on the Burmese border. We'll have more to say on these subjects in our next official newsletter.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a link to an article I enjoyed reading recently. http://edition.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/wayoflife/08/11/o.faith.doubters.dilemma/index.html I believe this article accurately sums up how a lot of people feel today, caught between theism and atheism. I've been there so I really enjoyed this thoughtful writer's exploration on doubt. Maybe it will strike a chord with you from a time in your not so distant past. At the very least, it's bound to depict someone you know.

We'd love to upload some photos, but lately when we try we are given this message: "Sorry, the web site you are accessing has been closed by Royal Thai Police due to inappropriateness such as pornography, gambling or contain any information which is deemed to violate national security." We are also unable to upload any new photos through Facebook, which may be a related issue. Hopefully, this situation gets sorted out soon.

Thanks for your faithful prayers and timely support.
