Walter Robinson II
Walter has been blessed with a wide range of
experiences in life. (Click here to read
more.) But the most challenging and rewarding has been serving as a
missionary carrying the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the wonderful people of
health problems slowed him down some since the winter of 1996. He suffered a
serious stroke in April of 1999 and a milder one in February 2002. Thanks to the
Lord's grace and power, he has mostly recovered from those. As of August of
2003, he has undergone a procedure to correct what was causing the strokes and
is doing much better! He
is now getting more into the work that he enjoys. (See
prayer-letters for information). He also has a number of other things that
keep him busy as well as other interests.
Beginning in August of 2000, he did much of the needed construction
on the interior of the facilities at the new location for Windward Bible Church
(WBC). He enjoys Bible study and
preaching, computers, doing research and writing books and articles on a number of
issues concerning Biblical doctrine in general and also on the last days.
From the inception of Windward Bible Church, he has
been responsible for preaching on Sunday mornings and nights and on Wednesday
nights. He also teaches adult Sunday School and strives to hold a men's weekly
time of prayer and challenge each Friday when able. However, sometimes vehicle
limitations hinder this. He also visits people in the surrounding community to
share and explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Like most pastors, he is also
responsible for counseling, visiting the sick, encouraging those that are
struggling, and dealing with any problems that arise among those in the WBC
On top of his pastoral duties, Walter also maintains their 4 WD, 1987
Dodge Colt Vista station, the church's 1991 Toyota HiAce bus that has 330,000+
miles on the chassis, his 1979 Honda CX-500 motorcycle, and anything else that breaks.
He has also had to build several pieces of furniture for their home and church.
Lastly, he is the founder and webmaster of both the Last Chance Ministries and
Windward Bible Church websites. He has authored numerous articles, two none
fiction books, and is hoping to one day finish a novel series.
Linda works hard at meeting with the ladies each Friday for Bible
study and each Thursday with the children for fun and games and Bible study. On top of that she
cooks, cleans, sows flowers, sews clothes, and ..., does just about everything else--but sleep.
The Robinsons live a nice comfortable
rented house in Meldrum, more toward the northern end of Carriacou.
(Click here to see map.)
The neighborhood is also very nice.
(Click here to see a VR
movie.) We have had numerous guests and often have folks from Carriacou with
us for dinner or overnight. We have also hosted three church teams (14 - 20 in
number!) that helped us hold special services and Vacation Bible Schools.
The Robinsons also has a dog
Shadow is a sweet heart that cannot get enough
petting, hugs, and food. He was just a few months old when he became a part of
family back around 1998.
I sincerely hope that you enjoy the rest of our
Walter Robinson II
