From the Chairman of the Board PDF Print E-mail

We thank God for 30 Years of Frontline Fellowship's Mission and ministry to persecuted Christians, suffering for their faith in Christ, in restricted-access countries, both Communist and Muslim. We praise the Lord for His blessings on Frontline's fidelity to the Word of God, faithfulness in presenting a true Biblical Worldview and vision for discipling nations. The Mission's motto, The Great Commission is our supreme ambition, has propelled Frontline teams to penetrate man-made barriers. Our Lord's command, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel," did not exempt so-called closed countries.

Tribute is due Frontline's Founder and Director, Dr. Peter Hammond, whose influence has been felt all over Africa, England, Ireland, many parts of Europe (both East and West), the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia. His many books have fired our hearts to a deeper commitment to serve Jesus Christ. His published mission periodicals and frequent feature articles in JOY! magazine inspire all of us to keep on keeping on. Undaunted by communist prisons or Muslim fatwas, Peter has forged ahead to plant the Christian flag in fertile soil and transform nations – specifically South Sudan and Zambia.

It is also fitting that we pay tribute to Lenora, who organized and set up the first Frontline office, adjusted to a new culture, accepted Peter's constant comings and goings, home-schooled their children, softened some of his brashness, endured many indabas and has had an overall mellowing effect on one of God's most complex servants.

Peter, this occasion is the time and place for me to express my personal appreciation for the example you have set for us to follow. Of all the men I've met in over six decades of serving Christ, you are in the top echelon of Christian Brothers whom I admire and respect. I have never met anyone, in the more than 100 countries I've visited, that can produce a fraction of what you routinely accomplish. You have a unique work ethic. At the same time you have invested quality time with your children – much more than I did, a matter I've lived to regret. You have kept on keeping on, in spite of criticism and undeterred by difficulties. You survived and carried on when others would have quit and thrown in the towel. Your vision for ministry and missions is remarkable in its accomplishments. Harriett and I are honoured that you are a part of our family. We couldn't ask the Lord for a son that we would love or be more proud of, than you.

This month is Frontline Fellowship's 30th Anniversary. Looking back we rejoice in all that the Lord has accomplished through your efforts, and thank God upon every remembrance of you. As Frontline enters its fourth decade we can say with the Apostle Paul, …we are "confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6

Rev. Bill Bathman

Chairman

I believe what you published made a ton of sense. But, consider this, suppose you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't want to telll you how tto run your blog, but suppose you added
something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean From the Chairman of the Board is a little vanilla.
You should look at Yahoo's front page andd note how they write post
titles to grab pople to click. Yoou might add a related vkdeo orr a related pic or two to grabb people
interested about whnat you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
