 Nathan and Audrey Goodpaster both grew up in Christian homes and were saved at ages twelve and thirteen, respectively. Audrey was born to Bill and Karen Moran in Union City, Tennessee. She surrendered her life to full-time Christian service as a teenager at Shawnee Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, where she grew up. Her father took a government job for three years in the Northern Mariana Islands which gave Audrey training on the mission field as a teenager. While on the island, her family started an independent Baptist church.
Nathan was born to Bruce and Carol Goodpaster in Lafayette, Indiana. At nineteen Nathan was called to preach while attending his first Youth Conference at the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. He surrendered to be a missionary while attending Hyles-Anderson College. Nathan served in the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, as a bus captain, bus driver, and Sunday school teacher.

Nathan Goodpaster Prayer Letter: Youth Camp, Vacation Bible School, and a Special Engagement!

Nathan Goodpaster Prayer Letter:  Youth Camp, Vacation Bible School, and a Special Engagement!We were able to baptize Kim and Rommel, a couple who was recently saved. Please be in prayer for Rommel, as he is working outside the country.

This year we were able to conduct our own Youth Camp. This was the first time in several years to conduct it on our own, as previously we partnered with a few other local churches. We were blessed to have 35 campers and 30 additional church members assisting. Our church plant, HBC of Bago City, also joined, and Pastor Jesse joined the preaching lineup. We have mainly been focusing on the main church plant in Silay and have not been able to spend much time influencing and helping our church plant. Please pray that we can start visiting them regularly to wins souls and encourage the Christians.

We also were able to conduct our annual Vacation Bible School, with the theme of “Putting on the Armor of God.” We kept it simple, with off-site classes in the areas where the kids lived and then brought them all to church on the final day for one grand assembly. These were our regular Sunday school kids attending this year.

We also had a music workshop, which was put on by our own orchestra. It was great seeing them in action.

A member of one of our supporting churches met a Christian girl online and is now engaged to marry her. George and Harliet are a cute couple and have been attending our church together, as well as Harliet’s church, where they will be married soon.

The nursery was finished in the first quarter and has really improved the quality of our church services, as well as given the ladies of our church a new ministry opportunity.

Since our last prayer letter, we have added 2 new Sunday school classes, bringing our total to 10. It’s a bit complicated, as only 4 teachers actually get to meet inside of a real building that is complete with doors,windows, and a roof. We had a mango fall during my outdoor class just last week. Thankfully, it did not land on anyone’s head!

We will start on the next Sunday school classroom in June. It’s been a bit slow with construction due to our summer activities and the medical mission earlier this year, which cost quite a bit. We are very thankful for the privilege to serve the Lord here in the Philippines. Thank you so much for your faithful support.

In Christ,

Nathan Goodpaster
