Right now, I am working on paperwork for the Wright family to come to Greenland! How exciting! The only way for other Baptist missionaries to get into the country is through us.
Years ago when we first applied, we were denied. But through a series of miraculous events, not only did we get into Greenland as missionaries, but we were also given the authority to invite other missionaries into this country.
Several years ago, Immigration informed me that the only way other Baptist missionaries can come into the country was if I, as pastor of the Baptist Church, invite them into the country by written contract.
I do not take this God-given responsibility lightly, but am humbled that God has allowed us to be the gatekeepers of this pioneer mission field.
A lot has changed over the years and Immigration has only gotten stricter. We know of two other “Baptists” who have tried to get into Greenland without the proper paperwork, but were denied.
As I look back, I praise God for giving us the fortitude to stick it out through so many difficult times. For the first time, I am actually excited about doing governmental paperwork!
We don’t anticipate any problems getting the Wright family into Greenland, but we know that the Devil is a powerful foe and does not want any more missionaries in Greenland. Please keep this matter in prayer and pray that everything goes smoothly and in a timely manner.
