We all have a role to play!

February 15, 2019 0

One of the aspects of mission work I enjoy is involving others!  We all have a unique role to play and this year is no different.  In the coming months we will head back to the Himalayas. Our team is working with local pastors to go into unreached villages. This is our third year and my spirit is filled with expectancy.  We can't wait to see what God is going to do!  I would love for you to pray for our small team of 3 as we prepare and go!  I am also selling shirts to help raise necessary funds and raise awareness of the work. The cost is $20 for S-XL and $23 for XXL or XXXL.  There is a $3 shipping fee if you are not local. Thank you for your prayers and support!  

If interested, please send me a email to rcall4him@gmail.com and let me know what size and address if you're not local.  You can pay Kathy, myself or Pay with Paypal. You can also donate directly through our church by contacting Whitney Warren via email wwarren@pizitzgroup.com.

Just so you know… 
Soft shirts are a tad less generous of a fit than a normal t-shirt… they’re a nicer, softer t-shirt… but if you are between two sizes I would definitely suggest choosing the larger!  

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you or your small group to discuss upcoming opportunities to get involved and go!. You can view pictures or videos from past trips on the home page. 

This mans eyes pierced my soul

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were born or you gave birth to the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God

Psalm 90:2

God is speaking through dreams and visions

January 30, 2019 0

Please pray for our missionaries and the national leaders as God continues to speak through dreams and visions in a supernatural way.  I believe God is calling this generation and the next to rise and take our place amongst the history makers who set the course before us.  

Romans 10: 13-15
13 for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? 15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”

Acts 2:17 
‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says,
‘That I will pour forth of My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
And your young men shall see visions,
And your old men shall dream dreams;

This week, Open Doors USA released the World Watch List—an in-depth report on the top 50 countries where the persecution of Christians is highest. "Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body" (Heb. 13:3). 

This is why we must pray and go!  Nepal and India are in the top 25!

Pray for Nepal

 The power of pray is God allowing his people to cry out for the Nations!
            Psalm 96 English Standard Version (ESV)

Worship in the Splendor of Holiness

 Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
    sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
    tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
    he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering, and come into his courts!
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;[a]
    tremble before him, all the earth!
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!
    Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
    he will judge the peoples with equity.”
11 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
    let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12     let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
13     before the Lord, for he comes,
    for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
    and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Moldova 2018 - Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel

April 25, 2018 0

In the year 2000, Rob had the opportunity to go on a short-term mission trip through our church, to India.  That trip birthed a love in him for taking the gospel to the nations that eventually spread to the rest of the family when we had the awesome gift of going on a trip to Africa a few years later.  Through our love for missions and sharing God’s Word, we have been fortunate enough as a family to visit several more countries for Christ.

Our daughters have fallen in love with sharing Christ overseas, and Jessica even lived in Peru for three months after her high school graduation as a result of earlier trips.  We now have the opportunity for Emmanuel to see first-hand how wonderful it is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ before we head back to Africa.

June 28-July 7, 2018, our church will lead it’s 13th trip to Moldova to teach VBS and run a medical clinic in a village in Moldova.  With each trip, we reach a different village.  Shannon, Emmanuel and I will work with children in VBS.  We need prayer support.  We need our brothers and sisters in Christ to commit to pray for us ithat we would not miss a single moment God has planned for us to reach the people of Moldova. 

Thank you in advance for your support and prayers.  We are so very thankful to have fellow believers who have a heart for the lost.  We are praying that God blesses you immensely as you pray and give.

May God use us all for His glory among the nations until He returns,

Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel Compton 

Reflective Testimony

April 04, 2018 0
There are certain moments in time which have shaped who am I in Christ and developed my core beliefs which drive my actions.  I’ve been so blessed with parents and a sister who show so much grace and love My journey is still ongoing and I can’t wait to see what happens next.  The journey is about moments which helped to define my belief systems.

At around 16 or 17 standing under a Krystal sign in Chattanooga, Tn. I felt God in a new and refreshing way.  At that moment, I knew my life changed. It was no longer enough to just be a bystander! God was calling me to serve and that began a race which would take me in many different directions to help mold me into who am I today.  I spent many years running from the calling out of fear, now I long to run towards the calling out of love.

In Chattanooga, I also met my wife Kathy who came into my life at a critical time  She knew of my past and didn’t judge but chose to show Jesus’s love by loving me for who I am. We now have 3 amazing children who push me to be a better person every day.  

Another critical moment came when asked to do a bible study at fellow church member’s house.  The Holy Spirit led me to John 22 which is the story of Jesus’s restoration of Peter with three thought-provoking questions. As I studied, the Holy Spirit began to challenge me by asking the sa
me questions with my name. Rob, do you love me? I can still hear Spirit asking me those questions to this day. I have felt a calling on my wife since I was 13.  In the summer of 2000, God began to push me to the nations to proclaim his glory and shift my dreams to his vision.

Since to 2000 God has called to unreached places which have little to no access to the gospel. From India, Peru, Africa, and Nepal, God is revealing his himself. I don’t know what to tomorrow holds, yet I know there is no place safer than the center of his well.

Psalm 96: 10-13

Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!
   Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
   he will judge the peoples with equity.”
11 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
   let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12     let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
13     before the Lord, for he comes,
   for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
