Pastor W.L. Cooley – Liberty Baptist Church

Dear Pastor,

It is with highest regard that I recommend Peter and Elisabeth Putney as missionaries to the country of Colombia and consider it an honor for Liberty Baptist Church to be their sending church. I have been privileged to be involved in their lives as the guiding hand of God brought them together as husband and wife, and now to witness God opening doors for them to reach their chosen mission field.

Peter and Elisabeth have both been dedicated, excellent teachers here at Liberty Baptist Academy. They have also been faithful, effective Sunday School teachers, bus workers, soul winners and choir members and have willingly helped in any position needed. God has prepared their lives for this ministry through their upbringing … the Christian schools they attended … and membership in independent, fundamental Baptist churches. The integrity of their beliefs and their lifestyle are above reproach.

I would ask you to prayerfully consider having the Putneys share their burden for Colombia with you and your church. With their deep commitment, servants’ hearts, and good work ethics, I can confidently say that the Putneys will be a wise investment of your time and missions dollars. I will be happy to answer any inquiries about them.

Dear Pastor,

I am excited about the opportunity to recommend Peter Putney to you. I have had the privilege of getting to know Peter over the past several years. I have known him in a working environment and have had the opportunity to observe his strong work ethic and humble spirit. I have also known him on an informal level and consider him a close personal friend.

Peter and I have prayed together for many years about him serving in the ministry by way of world missions. Ever since he was a teenager his heart has been tender to the great task of taking the gospel to those in need. He has surrendered his life to the Lord’s work by preparing himself with a solid Biblical education, displaying faithful local church involvement, practicing passionate personal evangelism, and taking a variety of short term missions trips. His call and desire to follow the Lord to Colombia are very natural and predictable steps in his walk with Jesus Christ.

He is a unique young man composed of God given gifts beyond his years. He is sensitive to the Holy Spirit, firm in his convictions, and compassionate towards a world perishing in darkness. Peter is a young man that I sincerely believe will be successful in reaching our generation of souls in the dark and sin laden country of Colombia.

I hope you will consider his family as you endeavor to make Christ known to those who have not yet heard the good news. Thank you in advance for your consideration of the Peter Putney Family and the needy people of Colombia.

Together, For God and Colombia,

Mark Gerosin
