Pastor Bob Bixby Going to Haiti Tonight. Pray. Help.

I just got off the phone with Bob Bixby, Pastor of Morning Star Baptist Church and one of the hearts behind Global Grace Missions. Bob has spoken frequently about the need for believers to extend compassion and assistance in times of particular need, and the Lord has given Him an unprecedented opportunity to do so.

I spoke with Bob yesterday about Global Grace’s collection of medical supplies for a medical team flying to Haiti very early tomorrow morning. In a 24-hour span, Morning Star and the surrounding community collected $250,000 in medical supplies and prepared to ship them to New York for the trip. As Bob was making final arrangements with the team, one of the doctors mused, “I wish we had a French-speaking chaplain.” Half reluctantly, Bob told the man that he speaks fluent French, having grown up as a missionary kid in France. And just as importantly, he knows the Gospel exceedingly well. Bob and his family prayed about the opportunity, and he leaves for Haiti at 2AM Friday morning on an appointment that seems to be no less God-ordained than Philip’s going to win the Ethiopian eunuch in the desert. (Except that Bob anticipates flying home on a plane.)

Pray for Bob’s safety. Pray for his courage. Pray for opportunities to share Christ and for lasting fruit—that some Haitians will join our song around the Throne as a result of this trip! And pray for his family (Jennie, Patience, and Corban) as they await his return around February 8th.

Per my conversation with Bob moments ago, he has around $1500 in travel expenses that are not yet covered. I told him not to think about it again. If you’d like to help, you can make a donation via the “Donate” button on the right side of the Global Grace blog. (Sorry I don’t have a direct link.) Your gift will go to cover Pastor Bixby’s expenses, followed by other gospel-saturated Haitian ministry, as possible.

What an amazing opportunity for a uniquely equipped servant of the Lord. Pray.

  1. Link to the paypal site is broken.

  2. PalPal links are complicated. You can’t copy and paste them because each time you click on a “Donate” button it creates a new transaction. Sorry about that.

    Just click on the yellow “Donate” button here,

  3. Done! Praying for the team now.
