Revival and Missions International has a four-fold calling from God. The
ministry seeks to impact this world through the following four areas of
ministry: This report covers the ministry activities of Revival and Missions
International for the months of April, May and June 2007.
God has raised up Revival and Missions International to educate pastors and key
church leaders in America and around the world. God has privileged the ministry
to be involved in educating over four hundred students in various places around
the world. Revival and Missions International has partnered with Covington
Theological Seminary to educate the pastors. Dr. Joe Youngblood serves as the
Dean of International Extensions for Covington and also serves as the Dean of
the Aiken, South Carolina extension. The Aiken extension will have completed its
fifth semester on May 17, 2007, with almost sixty students. Brother Joe also
serves as a teaching professor. He is completed teaching a Bible course on the
Gospel of John. John Gambrel serves as the Associate Dean for the Aiken
extension. Brother John is a volunteer with the ministry. The Fall semester for
the extension begins on August 19. The anticipated enrollment will be about
seventy students. Joe Youngblood will teach a course entitled “New Testament
Survey”, which is a required course for all under-graduate students.
The international extensions are in Romania, Honduras and Zimbabwe. The Romanian
extension has sixty-seven students which met twice during this report. The first
teaching session was held during the dates of January 22-26, 2007. Gary Hanna
and Murril Boinott were the teaching professors. The second teaching session was
held during the dates of March 19-23 and Gary Fleetwood and Bob Craven were the
The Honduras extension has grown with the addition of fifty new students for a
total student enrollment of 122. These students began their first series of
lessons in December of 2006. Two teaching sessions was held during the time of
this quarterly report. Dr. Eddie Indelfonso, a member of the Board of Directors
for Revival and Missions International, was the instructor for the two sessions.
The Zimbabwe extension opened has one hundred and eighty-seven students. Three
teaching sites are held in Victoria Falls, Harare, the capitol city of Zimbabwe,
and in Bulawayo. The May 7-11 teaching sessions were greatly blessed of God.
Excellent student work ahs been received by the seminary of the previous work
submitted by the students. Please pray much for the extensions and students, as
well as all believers in Zimbabwe, as they are suffering terribly under the
cruel dictatorship of their president. The country is facing and suffering from
severe food and fuel shortages. One of our deans, Moffat Moyo, reports that
there is no food on the shelves of the stores.
Revival and Missions International secures all the professors for the
extensions, arranges for all their travel, administrates all the extensions, and
secures the textbooks and all the other details of the education ministry. Joe
Youngblood and Revival and Missions International has partnered with Covington
Theological, Seminary and as such receives no financial support from the
The evangelistic ministry of Revival and Mission International has two primary
aspects, the international mission ministry and the revival and preaching
ministry of Dr. Joe T. Youngblood.
One mission trip was held this quarter. The trip was to the countries of Romania
and Wales. Joe T. Youngblood led the team and God greatly blessed the team. A
pastor’s conference was held in a very nice hotel, just outside of the city of
Lugio. About eighty pastors and wives attended the conference. The presence of
the Lord was very real at the conference. Evangelism meetings were also held in
various villages and cities surrounding Lugio. One ministry was to a gypsy
village in which no Baptist church existed. After the evangelism ministry, the
Romanian Baptist Union is planning to plant a church in this gypsy village. God
privileged the team to see a lot of people respond to the gospel presentations.
God blessed in so many different ways.
The second half of the trip was to the county of Wales, in the city of Swansea.
The main focus of the trip was a Bible conference on the subject of Revival. The
conference was held over a two day period, in a local church. The attendance was
good and the messages were well received. The country of Wales has seen some of
the greatest movements of God, but currently is one of the most spiritually
depressed countries in the world. Wales is a very secular country and thee is
very little interest in the things of God. The team truly believes God did a
great work in and through the Bible conference.
The planned mission trip to Malawi was canceled due to some unforeseen
circumstances. It was very regrettable but necessary that the ministry cancel
the trip to Malawi. The 2008 plans call for trip to this country.
The exhorting ministry of Revival and Missions International is the personal
preaching ministry of Joe Youngblood. This is often conducted in local churches
and in conference settings. In addition to preaching during the one
international mission trip, God allowed Brother Joe to preach in the following
venues in America during the months of April, May and June in the following

God kept Brother Joe very busy during these three months with his personal
preaching ministry. God privileged Joe to preach each week during this three
month period of time. God blessed the churches he was privileged to preach in,
in some very power ways. Please know that the love offerings that are received
when Joe preaches in a church, does not go to him, but goes directly into the
ministry of Revival and Missions International. Joe does not keep any of the
money that comes forth from his preaching ministry, but it all goes directly
into the operating budget of the ministry.
The equipping ministry of Revival and Missions International is primarily
centered in the bookstore ministry. The name of the bookstore ministry is called
Discount Christian Bookstore. The bookstore ministry is managed by Connie
Youngblood and is operated as a non-profit ministry. The bookstore ministry
supplies books and Bibles at very large Bibles cross America and to four foreign
Discount Christian Bookstore has now gone on-line. Books and Bibles can be
ordered from the ministry web-site which has the address of
www.revivalandmissionsintl.org discounts to pastors, churches, mission
organizations and seminaries. During the spring quarter Discount Christian
Bookstore shipped books and Bibles all across America.
As you can see God is using the ministry in many different ways and He truly has
His hand upon the ministry. Thank you so very much for your continued support of
