Neither my wife nor I grew up in a Bible-believing home. My wife was born in Peru, South America and was raised as a Catholic but was mostly non-religious. Shortly before graduating from high school, her mother was told by a friend of Hyles-Anderson College in the US. God moved miraculously to allow my wife to come to the US and attend the college, where she graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. My wife professed that she was saved but she was not. While out soul winning during her first semester, she finally understood the Gospel and got saved. Later on, she had the opportunity to go back to Peru and see much of her family trust Christ as their Saviour. Meanwhile, I grew up in California in the cult of Scientology, though I was mostly non-religious. By the time I became a teenager I didn’t want anything to do with religion. In 2004, I met Karin and she invited me to church and shared the Gospel with me. I didn’t want anything to do with church but God used my interest in her to get me to listen. After coming to church a couple of times, I knew that I was lost and I trusted Christ as my Saviour and was baptized shortly afterwards. My wife and I started dating and after getting married, we moved to Regency Baptist Church in Orangevale, California in 2005. It was here that God allowed us to serve in many different areas, from the bus ministry, teaching Sunday School, media, and various others. In 2008, I felt that God was calling me to full-time ministry. I made a decision to give my life to God but I did not really make a true surrender. I pursued a secular career and became financially successful. We moved to Colorado in 2014 and started attending Elmwood Baptist Church in Brighton, Colorado where we served in the teen ministry as well as a deacon. My wife also taught in the Christian school. It was in Colorado that God started to work on my heart. He reminded me of the commitment I had made in 2008. I realized I would never be happy unless I fully obeyed God. In 2017, we fully surrendered to whatever God wanted for our lives. God made it clear that He wanted us to be a missionaries. Shortly afterwards, God placed Japan on my heart in an undeniable way and my wife and I have sought to follow that call ever since. God opened the door for us to return to Regency Baptist Church (now in Loomis, California) in 2017 where we have continued serving. My wife has been teaching a K-5 class at the Christian school and I have served as a deacon for over the past year as well as teaching the adult Sunday School class and driving a bus.

Brendan and Karin Morgan Prayer Letter: Moving In and Moving Out!

thumbnail of Brendan Morgan August 2021 Prayer LetterThank you so much for your continued prayers and support! We’ve had quite a lot of things happen since our previous update. In July, we had the wonderful opportunity to attend FBMI’s Missions University. This was such a wonderful time of refreshment, encouragement, and learning. We got to hear some very helpful lessons from the FBMI staff, as well as from Bro. Eddie Wilson of Christian Media International. This event also coincided with the First Baptist Church of Hammond’s Youth Conference. We attended all of the evening services and heard some powerful preaching. While it was geared towards youth, the preaching convicted us as well! My wife also got to reconnect with many friends and faculty from her time at Hyles-Anderson College. We are so grateful for the wonderful time we had.

When we got back from Indiana, we continued getting things ready to go on the road permanently. We sold or donated and packed more things. I was also able to confirm some more meetings for later this year. I got to preach for Junior Church at RBC. I love preaching in Junior Church the best! On July 24, I had the wonderful privilege to share the Gospel with ‘Frey. I spent over an hour answering his questions, but he was not quite ready to trust Christ. Please pray for his salvation. The following Saturday, July 31, I was able to share the Gospel with several more men. Praise God that Jorge decided to trust Christ as his Saviour! Continue to pray that he would come to church and grow in the Lord.

August 2-6, I drove our church kids to Mount Zion Baptist Camp near Mount Lassen in California. I was able to be a counselor for the young boys during this week. What a time we had! This was actually the first time I had attended camp in any capacity. I had nine boys squeezed into one cabin with me! I had so much fun watching these boys learn different things and build relationships together. Pastor John Stalions preached some amazing messages to these kids. The camp staff also did a fantastic job keeping things in order and making the camp so much fun for the kids. I got to make some new friends as well.

The week after camp, we FINALLY got our RV back from the shop—over a month later. We were finally able to start moving all of our clothing and things into the RV. We aim to have almost everything moved in by today, as we prepare to drive off into the sunset in less than two weeks. This past Thursday, I was able to fill in for my pastor, as he just had his wisdom teeth removed. Our son Callan was also able to get braces, which he was excited about. Our daughter Sienna also got to celebrate her 11th birthday with her friends, possibly for the last time for quite a while. This coming Sunday, August 22, will be our final regular Sunday at our home church. We expect to come back around Christmas, but it will be a bit bittersweet knowing that we won’t be with these dear people for quite some time. Last night as my wife and I went out to dinner on a “date night” for the last time (for now), we stopped at a man selling churros on the street. He spoke Spanish, and my wife was able to share the Gospel with Joel. He was a police officer in Mexico and fled to the U.S. due to death threats. Please pray he would get saved! We plan on following up with him.

Pray for us as we begin our trek across the country in September. We will be in Tennessee, Kentucky, South Carolina, Indiana, Illinois, (a quick flight back to California), and then on to Arizona and possibly more in between! We are so excited to be starting full-time deputation finally and to see what God will do!

In Christ,

Brendan Morgan
