I now have a new website where I will be doing my blogging from. The web address is http://travisbirge.victorybc.org. Please follow me there to see how God is working in my life! Thanks for all the support!
As many of you know, I attend the Victory Baptist Training Center, at Victory Baptist Church in Loganville, GA. I have had the privilege of studying under my pastor, Derik Lawrence, and other men such as Austin Gardner, Patrick Henry, Josh Ayers, Chad Gordon, James Allen, Dr. John Banks, Chad Phillips and many others! I am so thankful for the amount of time that these men have taken out of their busy schedules and invested in my life.
For those who may not know what the training center is, it is a 3 year program where we study the Bible and have different classes such as Bible Doctrine, Old and New Testament Survey, Homiletics, Biblical preaching, and with many others. All these classes are designed and taught with one purpose… so that we can go back out and teach it to others (2 Timothy 2:2) I will have completed my 2 1/2 years of training here in the states in December, and as my final 6 months I will be living and serving on the mission field!
After much prayer, I feel like God is leading me to Santiago, Chile, where I will work with missionary Jason Holt. Jason is a great man that God is really using down in the country of Chile. Lord willing, I will be leaving in the beginning of March, and staying through the month of September. During my 6 month internship, I will be in full time language school, along with doing many different things to get the Gospel out to the community, and assisting Bro. Jason with whatever he needs. I would ask that you would prayerfully consider supporting me for 6 months. I have a lot of money to raise, but I have no doubt that God will supply the funds necessary. You can send checks to Victory Baptist Church (address below), made out to the church and noted that it is for Travis Birge. You can give monthly, or you can give a one time gift. No matter what, every little bit will help!
I would ask that, more than anything you please pray for me. I am very excited about this next step in my life that God has for me. Pray that I can learn the language. Pray that I can learn the culture and assist in whatever way possible!Victory Baptist Church 88 Brand Rd, Loganville, GA, 30052
