Here is our latest Christmas Letter, and latest ministry update.
Check out our "Fellowship House" brochure, detailing our new ministries here in Logan, Utah.
We live one block from Utah State University, and our hope is to reach out to the students there, as well as the community.
Debi's Webpage for her artwork is The Art Sanctuary. Catch us on Facebook at The Bond Family.

Who We Are
God called us, first to the Mission field in Quito, Ecuador... and now Utah.
We are missionaries sent out from our home church, Oakland Baptist of Corinth, MS. Our mission organization is New Beginning Resources, based in Houston, TX. We have been in the ministry since 2002. Before leaving the United States in 2003 for Ecuador, we were active in our NE Mississippi community through various ministries.
I believe that if we are in Christ, we are into missions. The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) is our standard in ministry. GO... BAPTIZE... TEACH... with the main imperative command being MAKE DISCIPLES. Within this focus, our emphasis is enabling believers to do the work of the ministry, not doing it for them... creating soldiers for the Lord right here in Utah!
Here is Rod's Testimony
"God has brought us to a place of service using our gifts... Deborah is using her ability in Art; I am using my gifts of administration and teaching in obedience to the Great Commission.
Debbie has a wonderful Art Ministry, spreading God's message of hope through art. Rod is involved in training and equipping local Christians who have a heart for the Great Commission; evangelizing, discipling, and planting Christian communities where none existed before. How exciting to live out the New Testament!
Our whole heart is to serve the Lord; He has called us to the Mission Field, and we are there. But we need you on His team with us to make it possible. Our ministry is totally "faith based"; meaning that we are responsible for raising our own support. The blunt truth is that we can't stay unless you help us. We would ask you to please:
1. Pray about whether God wants you to be a part of this ministry team as a sender: as a committed, regular prayer partner... even as a monetary support partner.
2. If God speaks to your heart about being a monetary partner, pray about how much, and when to start. If you are committing to be a prayer partner, PRAY FOR US REGULARLY! Specifically for support raising, general preparation, sale of our home, and continued good health.
3. Contact us by email, phone, or send your contribution to New Beginning Resources. The address, phone numbers, and email are listed below. 100% of your tax-deductible donations go directly to our ministry! NBRI is a wonderful organization with a heart for missions and missionaries.
Contributions to our ministry should be made out to NBRI with a note stating that it is for the Bond family.
