Ed & Carolyn Wedding Anniversary 07/07

Both Ed and Carolyn Tutton grew up in Christian homes.  Carolyn was saved at the age of eight in Ft. Worth, Texas.   Ed was saved at the age of fourteen in Buffalo, New York.  They met at Bob Jones University and were married soon after graduation in 1967.

They planned to go to the mission field, but God had other plans for them.  Their mission board requested that they wait a year before starting their deputation.  During that year, the pastor of their home church asked them to start a Christian school.  This began a thirty-year adventure, working in the area of Christian education.  Carolyn became a teacher, and Ed established and directed both Christian schools and Bible colleges in America.

Their calling to become missionaries was realized in 2004 when they were asked to join the China Mission Team sent from First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana.  Their assignment was to win souls and write the curriculum for English training schools.  On their thirty-eighth wedding anniversary, they left to serve as missionaries in Jilin, China, where they saw hundreds saved and many baptized and added to house churches.

Three years later, they traveled to Kumasi, Ghana, to establish the Hyles-Anderson College of West Africa.  It was in Ghana, Africa, working with Adam Ogle and his family, that they realized that the great need in world missions was to close the gap between world evangelism and global church planting by training a larger number of men in their own communities and cultures to go to the “next towns” and start mission works.  From this need, Ed Tutton and Adam Ogle got a vision to produce the Teaching All Nations program which is now being used to train men around the world, using the biblical model introduced by Christ in the New Testament.  This three-to-four-year program is a step-by-step Bible college curriculum, organized into 150 lessons, using the question-and-answer method to find answers in the Word of God.

Ed and Carolyn served the Lord by training nationals around the world to win souls and plant new, independent Baptist churches.

Teaching All Nations Update: On the Move Through the Warm Summer Days

Teaching All Nations Update:  On the Move Through the Warm Summer DaysTEACHING ALL NATIONS IS ON THE MOVE through these warm summer days. WE ARE SO PLEASED TO SEE HOW GOD HAS WORKED AROUND THE WORLD, EVEN THROUGH LOCKDOWNS.

WE HAVE RECEIVED A SPECIAL MESSAGE from Pastor Sihok Soeurn of Liberty Baptist Church in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This pastor has been using TEACHING ALL NATIONS for three years. He says, “Thank you very, very much for your great heart for missions around the world and for providing the TEACHING ALL NATIONS materials for Bible schools to train the leaders for the kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This is how I use the material. I give the lesson with the ten questions to my students to study, and when they come back to school, they must teach what they have learned from the questions and Bible verses in the lesson. After they teach the lesson, I give them more ideas from the Word of God and explain to them more. There are three churches that have been started under my leadership. There have been hundreds and hundreds of souls that have been won to Christ. Keep us in your daily prayers. Again, thank you very much for your great heart to serve. May the Lord bless you and Teaching All Nations.”

A NEW, POTENTIAL DOOR IS OPENING IN PERU with Bro. Joe Kotvas. He writes, “I was at a Missions Conference in Texas in April and ran into Mrs. Tutton, who reintroduced me to the Teaching All Nations curriculum. I am preparing to relaunch our Bible institute program for the deaf in Peru.”

ONE OF THE FIRST NATIONAL PASTORS TO USE TEACHING ALL NATIONS is Pastor George Menyon of Grand View Baptist Church in Monrovia, Liberia. His recent update includes an invitation to their first TAN graduation later in the year and the need for additional TAN workbooks. They have more than 20 students working through the Teaching All Nations program.

BECAUSE OF YOUR GIVING AND PRAYING, you have entered with us into our labors, and you ALL will share in our rewards. That is quite the thought. “For we are labourers together with God . . . .” (I Corinthians 3:9) God bless all of you for laboring with TEACHING ALL NATIONS and TEACHING OUR PEOPLE. We are praying for you too!
