200,000 Souls In Ten Years

Souls being Saved in Egypt
Nearly 10 years ago, our pastor, Dr. Ken Pleder, set out on what seemed to be an impossible adventure of faith. The task was clear, but the obstacles were nearly mind-boggling. After much prayer, he believed it was God's desire for the members of our church, Calvary Baptist Church in Middleburg, Florida, to take the gospel of Jesus to EVERY SINGLE NATION IN THE WORLD. The plan was not to simply send support to those that were in these nations, but to send our own members to the nations of the world to evangelize the lost and reap a harvest of souls for our Savior. This plan was not self-originated, but

it was plan adopted from the very pages of Scriptures. It was a plan given by Jesus when he instructed the singular church at Jerusalem, "Go ye into all the world". He was not speaking to a collection of churches, but one. He was speaking of a portion of the world, but all. 

So, in January of 2018, members of our church church began to travel. And we traveled and traveled and traveled.

And we began to preach. And we preached and preached and preached. And we ran out of money, so we had fundraiser after fundraiser after fundraiser. And we preached some more. And we prayed, and prayed and prayed. And over ten years people from cities and towns and villages got saved. And more and more and more got saved. And Jesus smiled. And Heaven rejoiced. And here we are ten years later. 
So what has been done in ten years? Not enough, but a whole more than we ever though possible when we began. So here is a ten year report:
