I was saved on October 12, 1969, called to preach March 25, 1970, and called to the mission field July 27, 1970. We surrendered to go to Mexico, where we served one term and started two churches that are still going on today. The churches have also started other churches in other areas of Mexico. We went to Colombia, South America, where we were missionaries for nineteen years. We started a number of churches there and they have started other churches. In 1996, we came back to the States to work with Rock of Ages Prison Ministry. We have been working in this prison ministry for nearly six years. I am the Spanish Department Director. Lou, my wife, is in charge of the Spanish Prisoners Bible Institute. She has 235 students now. She sends the students the Bible courses, grades the results, files them and then sends new lessons. It is a full time ministry for her. Of course, I preach in the prisons. Please continue to pray for us as we reach the inmates in the prisons.

Brother Carter and his wife, Glenda were married June 9, 1973 and they have four sons; Steven, Ben, John and David.

In June of 1990, the lord placed a burden on Brother Carter's heart to start another church.. He will continue as pastor of New Life Baptist in Kawagoe, but in addition to this he feels that more can be done to win the lost. His burden is to go back to Tokyo, where ha started his first church almost 10 years ago. The Lord put the city of Fussa, which is near the Yokota Air Base upon his heart.
On September 9,1990 Brother Carter started a new church in Faso, Japan. He will be meeting each Sunday at the Yokota Baptist Vhurch, pastored by fellow BIMI missionary Rev. Jon DeRusha. As an outreach of the military church there, we will be starting a service for Japanese.
Brother Carter has also started learning Japanese sign language. Most people think sign language is internationally the same, this is not true. Many of the signs are pictures of the Chinese characters called "kanji." Brother Carter's goal is to be able to preach with signs.
Steve grew up in Japan as the oldest son of missionaries Dave and Glenda Carter. He trusted Christ at the age of 5 while back in the states on furlough. He was called to be a missionary as a young teenager back in Japan, and started helping with different areas of the church while preparing to go to Bible College.
He attended Hyles-Anderson College, where he met his wife Bethany. They both graduated in 1997, and were married that summer. They returned to Bethany’s home church, Shawnee Baptist Church, in Louisville, KY, where they are currently based out of. After several years of deputation, they left as missionaries to Japan in April of 2003.
Since that time, they have been helping their parents with starting Akigawa Baptist Church, in Akiruno City, Tokyo. After starting in Dave and Glenda’s home, they were eventually able to purchase a house which they’ve converted to a church building, where they are currently meeting.
I was saved as a teenager at Bible Baptist Church in Cincinnati Ohio. My wife, Phyllis, made a profession of faith there as well, but would not be saved until about 12 years later when she received Christ in our home after we returned Springfield, Mo. so that I could finish the required courses in order to graduate from Baptist Bible College. We both went to BBC right after high school in 1965. Phyllis graduated on schedule. I did not. Phyllis graduated in 1968 and I graduated in 1975, spending almost five years in the Army between start and finish. Almost four years of my military service were dedicated to service in Panama. Phyllis and I have been married since Aug 6, 1966. We do not have children. We have adopted a number of pastors’ families and there are about 15 that call us grandma and grandpa.
Bruce DeLange and his wife Mary started serving the Lord shortly after Bruce was saved. Their story proves just how great the change can be. He was featured on the world-wide radio program Unschackled

The last thing I thought I would ever be was a missionary. That was until Missionary Bob Hughes came to visit my home church, First Baptist Church, Hammond, Indiana, In March of 1976.

We arrived in Iloilo City in October, 1977 and shortly afterward started a Bible Study in our apartment. Most churches are started as a result of Bible Studies and in April of 1978, Iloilo Baptist Church was born. This past April the church celebrated its 34th anniversary. Iloilo Baptist College was started in June of 1978, with a goal of starting churches.
God blessed us with two wonderful children: a son, Ricky, and a daughter, Rachel. Ricky and his wife Brandie are now working here with us. They have a son named Tristan (T.J.), and a daughter named Ava. Our daughter Rachel married a fine young man named Matt. They are working in a church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They have a son named Landon.
The Philippines, for the 35 years we have lived here, has been very receptive to the Gospel. The people of Iloilo are especially open. There are many open doors. The Philippine Constitution allows churches to send their workers into the public schools and teach their religion on a volunteer basis. Many teachers and principals, who have never accepted Christ, welcome us to teach the Bible. Special people groups like the deaf, educable slow, street children, lepers, blind, patients in hospitals, prisoners, etc., are hungry for our great Saviour. There are countless opportunities

It was at Grace Baptist Church and the Military Service Center for Christ near Camp Lejuene in Jacksonville, NC, where young Lieutenant J. Tyler Ryberg, USMC, was mentored and trained by Pop and Mom Woolston. They had an everlasting impression on him to be a “missionary to the Marine Corps.” Finally, 25 years after he worked with the Woolstons at Camp Lejuene, God called Colonel Ryberg out of the Marine Corps and into fulltime missionary work. His goal is to revitalize the Woolstons’ vision and mission to evangelize and disciple military men and women around the world through Worldwide Military Baptist Missions, a local church ministry of Faith Baptist Church in Belleville, IL.
