History of the Robinsons Getting into Missionary Work Overseas and How Windward Bible Church Came into Being

The History of Windward Bible Church and the Robinsons' Missionary Work in the West Indies

This page chronicles the history of how the Robinsons were led into missionary work on the island of Carriacou which resulted with creation of Windward Bible Church. See the following two sections:

 

How the Robinson became Missionaries to the West Indies

How the Robinsons Got into Missionary Work

Walter T. II and Linda Y. Robinson both received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savoir after they heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and understood it for the first time in the fall of 1977. They had begun to grow spiritually and faithfully attended and served the Lord in the church where they had first heard the Gospel of grace taught.

By trade, Walter had worked as a customer service representative with The 3M Company, a company that sold and serviced office equipment. One day in 1984, he had been dispatched to service a copy machine at Cross Lanes Christian School. While servicing the copy machine, he looked over the school and was impressed by its nice facilities, cleanliness, and quiet and orderly atmosphere. More importantly, he was encouraged to learn about the educational thrust that helped support faith in the teachings of the Bible. Walter had serviced equipment in most of the schools in Kanawha county, as well as many other schools around the states of West Virginia, Virginia, and Kentucky. Cross Lanes Christian School was definitely different in a very good way.

During this time, the Robinsonsí daughter, Tabitha, was now at the age where she needed to begin attending school. They began to consider Cross Lanes Christian School. They scheduled a visit to the school and spoke to the principle, and were very encouraged with what they learned. They decided to enroll Tabitha and looked to Lord to help them pay the monthly school bill.

Walter and Linda were so impressed with the school, they decided to visit Cross Lanes Bible Church (CLBC), the church that built and guided the school. Over the previous seven years, the Robinsons had grown in the Word of God enough to realize that there were doctrinal problems in the church in which they had first heard the gospel. They had also faithfully attended and served in two other churches during that same period of time and learned of other doctrinal problems. Thus, by the time they had placed Tabitha at Cross Lanes Christian School, they were hungry for a church that taught and practiced what they believed the Bible taught about living and serving the Lord.

Their first visit was in a Sunday morning service. Walter was impressed by the straightforward expository teaching of Pastor Jim Efaw. The Robinsons were literally deluged by the folks of CLBC greeting them, inviting them back, inviting them to dinner, etc. Walter was also impressed by the teaching of both Pastorsí Dan Berger and Dick Corbin. The Robinsons continued to visit more and more, until they became convinced that CLBC was the church to which the Lord was leading them. They joined CLBC in 1985.

It was in 1985 and 1986 that the Lord used Pastor Jim to challenge the Robinsons about possibly serving in mission work. Other churches they had previously attended had spoke about supporting missionaries, praying for missionaries, and even sending supply packages and crates to missionaries, but none had ever challenged them to give themselves to mission work if that was what the Lord wanted.

Since the Robinsons had never availed themselves to the Lord about this matter, they could not say for sure that it was not the Lordís will for Him to use them in this way. Thus, they began to put the matter before the Lord and approached Pastor Jim to inform him of what they were doing. Pastor Jim then took them before the church in one of the Sunday services and asked the folks to pray for the Lord to help the Robinsons discern the Lordís will concerning this matter. The saints began to pray and encourage the Robinsons ... and the Lord begin to reveal His will to them.

To make a very long story very short, the Lord worked in a marvelous way to reveal that His will was for the Robinsons to go to Carriacou, Grenada, located in the Southern Caribbean of the West Indies to serve Him there. The Lord provided and cared for them as Walter left his job to do deputation full time, but was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and had to undergo open-heart surgery to correct it in 1990. The Lord then completed the task of raising up their support and brought them to Grenada on August 21, 1991.

The Robinsons initially thought they were to work at a new Christian radio station that was being built there. However, after being on the field for a little under one year, the Robinsons came to realize that there were serious problems with some of the activities of those that managed and worked at the station. After being unable to resolve the matters over several months with the help of their pastor, Dan Berger (by that time the interim pastor of CLBC), the Lord moved the Robinsons into full time church planting that has resulted in the work now known as Windward Bible Church. Many have come to know the Lord as a result, many have been discipled, and many others are being reached with the gospel each year.

The Lord be praised for all that has been accomplished!

How Windward Bible Church Came into Being

How Windward Bible Church Came into Being

The ministry of Windward Bible Church began with street preaching and witnessing in the Village of Windward in June of 1992. In July of 1992, we began holding Wednesday night prayer meeting and Bible teaching in our home in Meldrum, which is about one mile from Windward. Many of our immediate neighbors joined us. Over the next few months word got out about our services and our attendance began to grow. We began holding regular and formal services in November of 1992.

From the beginning of our work we began seeking a building in the village of Windward to hold services, but we encountered a spiritual wall that prevented us from finding such a place. Around the latter part of 1994 we were able to procure a building in the community of Bogles, which is about one and one-half miles from Windward. Finally, in the summer of 2000, the Lord provided good facilities for us in one of the best locations possible right in the village of Windward. Praise the Lord! As far as we have been told, only the Roman Catholic church has been in Windward since these islands were first discovered and settled by the Europeans back in the 1600s!
