If this is your first time reading our monthly updates, please take the time to go to “About Us” and learn why you see our family picture from 2006 to your left and a current picture of Chrissie and I to your right.  “Lifesong” is our theme for a very important reason, and we want you to get to know us, not just our ministry!  Thank you for taking time to pray for us!

Chrissie’s Corner

HEY everyone!  A quick update for ME!!  I am still working for the Mid Atlantic Baptist Network (AKA BCMThe WisesD) and I’m really enjoying it.  And believe it or not I am getting used to the traffic!  LOL Marc and I had the privilege of hosting the pastor of North Brook Baptist church, Robert Wise and his wife SandrCBC Housea for a vision tour here in Baltimore.  They are praying how they can be involved here with the Send Baltimore Movement.  We had a GREAT time!  Marc and I moved into a house on April 1st.  We feel so blessed by God’s provisions!  God is good, all the time!  Pat Larson and I continue to minister to the Church Planter’s wives thru monthly meetings…these ladies are such a blessing!


News from Marc…

We trust you all had an amazing March as we celebrated Our King’s glorious resurrection!  The entire month was such a blessing to us.  Sunday, March 20 was a special day for Cockeysville Baptist Church as we enjoyed Rabbi Photo: Rabbi Robert at Passover.Robert Pristoop and his wife, Herta, as they presented “Messiah in the Passover.”  Robert holds a double ordination, as a Messianic Rabbi and a Baptist Pastor.  Robert and Herta are planting a Messianic congregation as well as traveling all over to spread the gospel.  Please take the time to go to their website.  They would love to come to your church, and I promise you that you will be blessed!  Remember that Jesus told us to go to the Jews first!  Rabbi Robert has officially joined our Multiplication Team as our Jewish Strategist, so your missions’ dollars to the Mid-Atlantic Baptist Network (BCM/D) are now strategically reaching the Jews!!!

So, Palm Sunday for us was amazing!  Then Jason Robbins did a wonderful job helping us spend Passion Week remembering the steps of Our Lord through Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.  Thank you Jason and Olga for your hard work!  Great days ahead!

Our regional work is going so well.  Our coaches are bringing back great information about our planters and we are excited to see what will take place in our next Cohort Gatherings coming up later in April.  We need you all to continue to pray for us as a region as we pray together towards God’s wisdom and power to be poured out through His people.  It is so amazing to see God’s hand at work!  We were blessed to participate in the MABN/BCMD International Music Celebration.  Although we can’t give pictures of every group, below you will see an assortment of groups.

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,…” (Revelation 7:9 ESV)

Don’t Miss This…  Jesus is moving…bringing His people to Himself!

We, the church, are joining hands all over this nation and around the world to see the name of Our King lifted up!  Those of you who are reading this and you live half way across the country, but you are praying for us here in Maryland/Delaware…YOU ARE PART OF THAT MOVEMENT!  Those of you who are supporting financially, you are part of the movement!  We need each other!  Church, I challenge you to pray, give, go!!!  We thank you all who are joining us in this great move of God.  If you have not yet joined the movement, will you do so now?  How?  Just go to our PARTNERS PAGE and fill out your information.  Also go to our NAMB website

As we close, we want to say THANK YOU for so many of you who take the time to remind us that you are praying for us!  Thank you for the financial support that helps to keep us on the field and enables us to help support our planters.  We love you all and we “Thank Our God at every remembrance of you!”  God bless you all…..
