2017 Missions Update
A 21 team member team from FBC Dyer served in Quito, Ecuador June 3-10, 2017. The team reported seeing over 1150 people come through the clinic with over 350 professions of faith. The children’s and youth ministry teams had a great week and ministered to large numbers of children at each of our work sites, with some youth coming to know Christ during their ministry. We have been serving in various areas of Quito since 2007, and the Lord has blessed our work greatly there.
We appreciate the support of the Tanya Taylor Family Memorial Mission Fund, the Wingo Fund, and our 9th annual Tanya Taylor bike ride this year was the best ever! Tanya Taylor and her husband Brad, sons Tyce and Kyle, lost their lives in the tornado of April 2, 2006, they were living near Bradford, TN at the time of the tornado. Ronnie and Selene Barron, Tanya’s parents and members of First Baptist Dyer, established the Tanya Taylor Family Memorial Mission Fund in their honor. The fund is supported by memorials and monetary gifts that are given throughout the year. The bike ride for missions began in 2009 by 4 bikers in the church and this year’s event was the most successful ever. The event involves the participation of the entire church and is one of the biggest events held at First Baptist Dyer. Proceeds from the bike ride go to the Tanya Taylor mission fund, which in turn helps support the Ecuador mission team as well as other mission efforts of the church. The 10th annual will be May 6th, 2018, the first Sunday in May, as is our custom.
We appreciate all the prayers, financial support, and knowing FBC Dyer supports all our mission efforts!
