Yesterday, I spent a wonderful day in the Angleton/Freeport area of Texas visiting some of the ministries funded by Texas Baptists.
I started the day with Bobby Fuller, director of the Texas Port Ministry in Freeport. In recent years they’ve expanded the ministry to target the entire Freeport Port community, including truckers, longshoremen and others who support the shipping industry. Of course, they’re still ministering to seaman from around the world who come to the port. Bobby and his crew of more than 50 volunteers are doing a great job.
Bobby is a missionary of the North American Mission Board. He worked in the port area as an inspector for years and served an area church as minister of education. Now, those past experiences are coming together in Bobby’s current work. He has a real understanding of strategic vision and great skills at organizing. Southern Baptists and Texas Baptists are blessed to be involved in this great kingdom ministry through Bobby.
