My name is David W Ballinger
I was raised in a christian home brought up in church knowing about God and His love. At the age of fourteen God's love became real in my heart and on July 5, 2001 the Lord saved me.
At the age of Seventeen, I surrendered to preach and do what ever the Lord would have me to do. For the next few years He worked in my heart a desire and a burden for missions. In 2009, the Lord opened up a door for me to work with Bro. Keith Blalock for about 10 months on the Island of Bequia and it was there that the Lord burdened my heart for the West Indies, and the Grenadines islands. On November 5, 2010 we fully surrendered to go the mission field. We were accepted into Macedonia World Baptist Missions in March 2011 and stepped out by faith in April 2011.
Love Valley Baptist Church, Pastor Barry Philbeck , in Kings Mountain N.C. has sent us out to reach the lost and plant a Gospel preaching church in the West Indies. The Lord used the verses Matthew 9:37-38 and Jeremiah 8:20 to confirm it in our hearts.
My name is Mckenzie Ballinger
I was raised in a missionary home and have spent most of my life on the mission field in the country of Romania, as well as the island of Bequia . Being a missionary's daughter was not enough to get me to heaven and the Lord showed me my personal need of a Savior and saved my soul in the summer of 2002 at the age of 10 .
Since the Lord saved me He has been continuously working missions into my heart through being on the mission field as a child and through the testimonies of other missionaries. I am thankful that He has allowed me and my husband to serve Him in the Grenadine islands.
