Where & Why

We thought it’d be useful to share with you again where we are going and what we will be doing there.

Our desire is to serve at the Rio Grande Bible Institute in Edinburgh, Texas. This is an accredited Bible college that teaches entirely in Spanish at the lowest cost they can. Spanish-speaking people from literally all over the world are able to come to be equipped as pastors and missionaries of the Gospel.

The trouble is that many of the people who desire Biblical training are unable to make the trip to Texas for one reason for another. They may be unable to leave their families, unable to afford it despite the low cost, or current pastors who cannot leave their congregations.

That’s where Billy comes in. Billy is a photographer and videographer who has joined RGBI's mission to create Biblical DVD courses by filming live classrooms. These DVDs are sent out into the Spanish-speaking world, especially Mexico and South America. For example, a group of 20 students in Cancun are currently using the Rio Grande Bible Institute's materials.

God is using RGBI all over the world!
Currently the video work is being done by RGBI students and overseen by a staff member, but students have heavy workloads and eventually graduate. Billy will be able to work on the recording and editing of these classes more efficiently, enabling RGBI to create more courses at a better quality.

Another part of his work will be to help tell the Church how God is using RGBI through photography. Pictures for magazines, websites, and prayer cards have to be taken by someone, and Billy is more than qualified to help!

As for Sarah, it is her desire to help Billy all that she can, and she’s been doing her best to learn and practice her photography skills. If there is no practical way for her to help him in photography or video, we’re confident that God will provide an opportunity for her to be of service.

Next Time: All About Support Raising

Friday, February 14, 2014

Hello from Sunny Missouri!

Okay, not really. It's actually been a very chilly, snowy winter here. We're looking forward to the warmth of Texas!

Yes, dear friends, as of October 13th, Billy Jackson is a married man, and he's turned out to be the most wonderful husband in the world.

So here we are, writing a little post to let you know that Mr. & Mrs. Jackson are setting back out on the great adventure of Support Raising, still hoping to get to RGBI this year, even though January wasn't a possibility. Our new goal is Summer (August), and for that we need a team of Prayer and Financial Supporters!

To help include you in our adventure, we're restarting the blog, and hoping to make it more informative than ever! Our goal is to update around once a week.

If you have any questions, please comment, or better yet email us! We'd love to hear from you!
Our new email is:

Love, joy, & peace to you!
-Sarah Jackson
