 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: Converts and Building Growing!

Nathan Goodpaster Prayer Letter: Converts and Building Growing!We trust that you all have enjoyed the season of fall and had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We are ever grateful for your continual co-laboring in the ministry with us over the years.

Jonathan had his first follow-up MRI in the Philippines in early November. We praise God that his scans appear stable and that he continues to be cancer-free! He is enjoying life and just getting to play outside every day with his dog like a normal boy, something he missed out on during the last two years. He has a long way to go still, with many daily challenges to battle, but we can clearly see he has already come such a long way with the Lord’s help.

I have been blessed to lead several people to Christ and to see 2 of my converts follow the Lord in believer’s baptism. Our church baptized 11 people during the past 2 months. We are continuing to fulfill the Great Commission by discipling these new babes in Christ.

The ongoing church construction project continues to move forward at a decent and safe pace. The preparation to pour the floor/roof of the nursery room of our Sunday school building took three weeks. The pouring of the concrete itself was accomplished by 20 of our church men volunteering together to knock it out in one long day; several of the men were new converts. We will need to wait a month for the concrete to cure, so our December timeline for opening will be delayed until next year. Our total remaining cash on hand for the ministry is now about $300, so it seems to be God’s timing regarding the needed one-month wait anyway. Just as the pouring of concrete was done in just a day, so the planting of the seed and the harvesting of a soul can be done quickly. Seeing God’s church grow is quite similar. Just as the lengthiest part of construction is the structural support below the surface, so the growing of believers is done through prayer and the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. What a thrill to get to serve the Lord!

In Christ,

Nathan Goodpaster
