...that I might by all means save some. I Corinthians 9.22
ByAll Means Ministry
We, here at By All Means, have joined together for the purpose of providing a way our fellow Christians can serve our Lord Jesus and our neighbors by ministering locally and around the world. We love, because He first loved us. Therefore, our heart is to “live Christ” daily as we love our neighbors as ourselves.
The Gospel Outreach
We believe that “It is appointed unto man to die once and then comes the judgment.” As a result, our heart is to warn all men, women and children that Jesus is “The Way, the Truth and the Light” and that “There is salvation in no one else.” Because of this, we daily preach the Gospel and give tracts to everyone who will listen. In addition, we regularly go to local malls, parks, our local jail and events with this same purpose. We are also, regularly involved in sending saints to the remote corners of the globe for short term Gospel centered mission trips. Our most recent focus has been Thailand. While historically we have been more focused on work in China, we have also made recent trips to Nicaragua and South Korea. These trips consist of evangelism, discipleship, pastor training, loving and caring for the fatherless, and medical clinics.
God says that He is “A father to the fatherless.” As His children, we have the same heart. During our work in Thailand, we have seen countless orphans scattered throughout the villages. Our friends there have started an orphanage on the Thai/Burmese border. They are currently caring for 26 children in the homes of 2 Christian families. Our goal is to purchase land and build an orphanage there. We want to initially care for these 26 but to expand as God leads. We see a great need to not only provide for them physically, but to let them have a loving family where they learn to love, serve, work hard, and most importantly, love God.
These are the major areas where God is presently leading us. However, we continue to seek Him and follow Him to labor where He is laboring. Please pray for God to bless these efforts that they will bear fruit in the lives of every person with whom we interact. Our desire is to impact people on a temporal basis, but most importantly, our prayer is that we may “by all means save some.”
1 Cor. 9:19-22: For though I be free from all [men], yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. 20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; 21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ), that I might gain them that are without law. 22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all [men], that I might by all means save some.
We love our unborn neighbors as our selves and believe “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. “ As a result weekly, we visit the local abortion clinic reaching out to the workers while sharing an alternative to the girls who come there to get abortions. Our heart is to save these babies from dying there, help these mothers with raising their children or by adopting their children, and to proclaim the way of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Ultimately, we want to see this shedding of innocent blood completely eradicated in Mississippi. This is the front line where Satan is waging his war against our nation and the spiritual battle is immense!
Jesus said, “The poor you will always have with you.” This is certainly true in our area and all over the world. Our desire is to help our homeless population with some farming initiatives that we started on in the spring of 2018. Initially we built some large planter boxes so they can raise their own produce. Our goal is to expand this ministry in the future. Every winter we work diligently to make sure these same guys and gals have warm clothes.
