Missionary of the Month

The Elliott family is ministering in Quebec, a French-speaking province in Canada, where they will plant a Free Will Baptist church and ministry. With ministry experience in Texas and South Carolina, Danny came to Home Missions from the pastorate at Ruth's Chapel FWB Church in New Bern, NC. Danny and Dawn both attended Southeastern Free Will Baptist College with Danny earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible and Missions. Danny and Dawn are the proud parents of four children: Summer, Autumn, Joshua, and Jonathan. To prepare for ministry in Quebec, the Elliotts are attending language school. This is a ground-breaking experience for Home Missions. I had the opportunity to become friends with this amazing family while they were attending my grandparents church Sherwood Forest in New Bern.  They are truly an inspiration and their passion to share the good news is contagious.

Please, remember each of our precious missionary families during the Christmas season most will be away from family and will need extra encouragement.  Take time to send Christmas emails and/ or cards (or even better a care package) to remind them they are in your thoughts and prayers.  Two great websites to obtain missionary contact info are the FWB home missions website and the International FWB Missions site.

A few facts: The Quebecois are considered to be the most unreached people group of North America. With a population of nearly 8 million, there are no Free Will Baptist churches in the province. Quebec City has a population of 750,000, and less than 1/2 of 1% claim to be evangelical Christians. Please pray for the Elliott family as they embark on this new frontier for Free Will Baptists.
