WHO ARE WE?
We are a ministry of the Lincoln Baptist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. The former pastor of Lincoln Baptist Church, Todd Painter, is also the head of Indochina Missions. Pastor Painter has been in the ministry for twenty-one years and has served fifteen of those years in the pastorate. During the fifteen years that Pastor Painter has been leading the Lincoln Baptist Church the city of Lincoln has become one of the most major refugee relocation centers in the United States. In fact, recent statistics have ranked Lincoln, Nebraska as the largest (per capita) refugee relocation center in the country. Many of these relocated refugees have come from Indochina. God has used Lincoln Baptist Church and in particular Pastor Painter and his family to reach these precious Asian refugees with the Gospel.
In June of 2016, God opened the door for Pastor and Mrs. Painter to take a missions trip to the Kingdom of Thailand. During their preparations for the trip, several of their Burmese converts, who were still young in the faith, asked Pastor Painter to visit some of their relatives who lived near the area where he would be going. Pastor and Mrs. Painter were able to visit some of these relatives, and through translators, were able to lead them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. The jubilation among the young converts here in the States was great as they heard how their relatives had trusted in their own new-found Saviour. God has used this to instill a vision within Pastor Painter's heart. A vision to personally, and as a church, reach beyond the city limits of Lincoln, Nebraska and beyond even the borders of our own great country, to penetrate the Gospel into the darkened shores of a golden land that is ripe and ready for harvest. We support several missionaries in Southeast Asia, but the Indochina Mission is an effort by a local church and her pastor to accomplish Acts 1:8 on a personal level. To reach our Jerusalem, our Judaea, our Samaria, and the uttermost parts of our world. Currently, with a special attempt to reach the misled, Buddhist region of Indochina with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
