I believe God has opened the door...
I was born into the missionary home of Pastor Adam and Kim Thompson in Cordoba, Argentina. After nearly five years in Argentina, God relocated my family to the country of Mexico. It was there in Mexico that I received Christ as my personal Saviour at the age of ten on November 26, 2006. Shortly after my salvation, God burdened my heart for missions, and I surrendered to serve the Lord in full-time service. At the age of thirteen, we moved to Austin, Texas, where my dad took over as pastor of Capitol City Baptist Church. God used the transition as a vital point in my life to draw me closer to the Lord. For several years I prayed concerning China as a possible field for missions, but that door never completely opened.
In January 2017, I had the opportunity to take a missions trip to Ecuador with our Bible College. On that trip God began to burden my heart for the country. A year later I returned to take a survey trip to Ecuador with my father and three other young men. God began to confirm in my heart His direction for my life as we travelled visiting several cities and seeing most the country.
It was with God’s guidance and the blessing and support of my pastor and local church, that I moved to Ecuador in April 2019 to help Missionary Diego Carrascosa. I returned in February of 2020 to plan for an upcoming wedding with Leah Smith and to raise support for our departure to the field.
As the daughter of an evangelist, I was blessed with the opportunity to hear the truth of the Gospel at a young age. Like many young people who grow up in a Christian home, I made a profession of faith when I was just five years old. It was not until November 5th, 2006 that I repented of my sin, trusted in Jesus Christ as my Savior and was born again.
My love for missions began at a early age. As a family, we traveled throughout the States and Canada helping churches, holding meetings and doing Vacation Bible Schools during the summer. In 2007, our family began to do missions work in South Africa and Zimbabwe, working with different missionaries and training national pastors for several months at a time. It was during those stays in South Africa that God burdened my heart for missions, and my desire to serve the Lord as a missionary began to grow. While studying in Austin, Texas, at Capitol City Baptist College, I met and fell in love with my fiancé, Christopher Thompson! We are excited about what God has in store for us in the country of Ecuador!
Adam and Kim Thompson
I am writing on the behalf of Christopher Thompson. Christopher is currently serving in two different churches under my pastoral leadership – both in our English-speaking church (Capitol City Baptist Church) and our Spanish-speaking church (Iglesia Bautista Vida Abundante).
Christopher is my son and a third-generation preacher. My wife and I served as missionaries for fifteen years in Argentina and Mexico. We thank God for the privilege of all three of our children being raised in ministry on the mission field. They learned to help in the planting of churches, discipling of Christians, building ministries while learning fluent Spanish in the process.
Christopher has not only received formal training during his completion of Bible College but actively serves in two churches under my guidance. He has helped in our latest church plant of Iglesia Bautista Vida Abundante in Austin, TX. Christopher has grown a new youth department and a bus route and has filled the pulpit often in both churches.
Christopher came to me in his childhood burdened with God’s calling to the foreign field. We have nurtured that desire by sending him for extended travels to several countries throughout the years. Our trips to Ecuador confirmed God’s direction and we are pleased to see God’s obvious leading to that end. Our English and Spanish churches are both in agreement that the timing is right to send him now for a period of time while he waits on God’s timing for a mate.
We hope that you will prayerfully consider investing in this work.
The men in our church and I stand behind him 100%!
