Currently Rob is teaching at the Seminário Bíblico e Teológico de Maputo (Maputo Biblical and Theological Seminary). This school offers a four year program of study that focuses on preparing future Mozambican church planters, pastors, and leaders. There are 23 different evangelical denominations represented at this school. The students have come from many different provinces within Mozambique to study and prepare for ministry. The need for these current and future ministers to know God’s word and Biblical theology is significant. God is at work here in this country but the need for qualified, mature, Biblically sound leaders is massive. The daily struggles the church and its leaders face here in Mozambique are staggering.
Rob’s heart is to train leaders and make disciples who have an authentic, passionate relationship with Christ. Their desire is to see future Mozambican leaders who are both full of the joy of the Lord, and know and live by God’s Word. Rob and Heather have a passion for life-on-life discipleship.
Rob and Heather Blanks would like to thank Heartland for their continued financial support and prayer. This makes a huge difference in our ability to live and minister here in Mozambique.
We are truly serving together with you here.
Thanks so much, Rob

Missionaries to Thailand/Myanmar(Burma)
In 2004, we (Joey and Narlin) went to Laos and Thailand for a short trip mission exposure. One of the places we visited was Mae Sai and the moment we laid our feet in this land, the Lord spoke to us clearly that this is where He has called us to be his missionary. After two years of training and preparation, we went back to Mae Sai with our three children. We met and worked with Megan on our first year and she was the one who introduced us to Heartland Church.
We are now in our seventh year of ministry in Mae Sai. We encountered a lot of difficulties along the way because of limited resources. But then God showed to us that this limitation is not a hindrance for His servants to commit themselves to the work of the kingdom.
God continually provide for our needs and we are blessed with ministries that fit our trainings and gifts. We organize leadership and discipleship training/seminars each year. We are now working in partnerships with an agricultural NGO in starting a training program for community and church leaders from Myanmar and Thailand. We organize summer English/Music camps every year. The camps are well attended and it is a good way of evangelizing and discipling older children and young people during summer when they are not in school. We also do volunteer teaching in the Municipal school.
Organization: Independent missionaries. They hold a partnership with a local Burmese church and leaders.
1. Bible training to future church leaders of Burma.
2. Providing leadership over outreach to Burmese migrant workers and their children at Grace Home Kindergarten Center.
3. Our home is a shelter for12 children who are either orphaned or abandoned. God uses our family to provide them a loving and caring home.
Language: Thai, Burmese and English
On behalf of the family and the children, we thank you and please extend our thanks to Heartland Church.
