In 2023, Mark had the opportunity to attend the IMB Missions College in Richmond, VA where he received training on "Using Oral Methods for Discipleship and Leadership Development". This training served to better equip our entire ministry as a whole in our efforts to accomplish our mission to love God and love our neighbors by crossing boundaries, serving the needs of others, and equipping them to do the same.
In 2023 at Pahin Wakpa Baptist Mission:
Regular weekly worship services continued,

Additionally, the local body of believers that the Lord has put together in Frazer has been faithful to serve in several aspects of ministry. Their heart to serve God in their community and tell others about Jesus has been inspirational. They even came to Glasgow and helped out with the VBS that was held there at Calvary Baptist Church. We praise the Lord for all of these areas of service and look forward to what else He has in store for 2024.
