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

September 18, 2018 0

 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,

We are thankful for everyone who prayed for us during our recent trip to Nepal. This was an incredible trip, but it's extremely hard to write or explain how the Holy Spirit moved in such miraculous ways. We saw miracle after miracle with God's breathtaking beauty around us the entire time.  The unreached are difficult to reach, but it's our responsibility to be the hands and feet in the hard to reach places.  Thanks for your patience we are still processing.  I would love to share more one on one or in small

Next stop...Nepal!

One of the greatest things about being a Christ-Follower is the humbling opportunity to serve him in a foreign context.  This year, we will have a chance to participate in vision trip to Nepal. The focus of the trip is prayer-walking and evangelism to unreached people groups in the foothills of the Himalaya's.  Our team value each and every prayer.  We will try to provide updates along the way.

I am so humbled by this experience and for every person who has poured into me through the years!  God has used you to shape and mold me!  One of greatest gifts is the core fundamental beliefs about the Bible.   I don't take the question lightly nor attempt to minimize it's importance.  For me, the question comes down to what I believe about the Bible.  If I believe the Bible to be true then what does that mean?  

Risk it all for the sake of the gospel!
