Mark Jones Family – Missionaries to Hawaii

Back in July of 2016, when we were attending the East Texas Baptist Camp Meeting, we had the pleasure of meeting Mark Jones and his family, missionaries to Hawaii.      I had added their ministry to the Baptist-Ministries Database (baptist-ministries.org).

I was able to contact Brother Mark, and after some discussion I registered his domain and set up a basic WordPress website for him to get him back online (the domain is shown on his Mission Cards, so it was advantageous to get the website back online quickly).      The Mark Jones Family is very busy right now, as they are out raising support, but Brother Jones will be maintaining and updating his website as time...
