The Jim Hutchinson family consists of Jim and Laura and their three daughters (Alaina, Katie, and Emily).
Jim was saved at the age of 18 and Laura at the age of 7. As young adults they met at church and were married in 1992.
Brother Hutchinson surrendered to preach while on a mission trip to Mexico in 1991. In 1996, during a mission conference, they surrendered to be full-time missionaries in Russia. Jim completed his schooling and they served a three-year internship at Thomas Road Baptist Church, in Phoenix, Arizona. During their internship, Laura served as ladies’ ministry director and nursery coordinator.
Jim and Laura were approved as BBFI missionaries in May 2001. Following two years of deputation, they arrived in Moscow, Russia on May 3, 2003.
The Hutchinsons spent their first term on the field engaged in intensive language study, pastoring Grace Baptist Church in Moscow, assisting another missionary in Moscow and working with other Baptist missionaries to compile Bible college curriculum that will be used throughout Russia. They are now serving the Lord in Moscow on their second term.
Their vision includes continuing to pastor the Grace Baptist Church in Moscow (with an emphasis on prayer and evangelism) as well as to see the Bible college curriculum finalized and implemented in the local church in Moscow and in other cities across Russia. Their desire is to train nationals to be more effective in the local church and to assist those who have the desire to engage in church-planting throughout Russia.
The Hutchinson's sending church is the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Phoenix, Arizona. Their mission board is Baptist Bible Fellowship International.

This last Sunday morning and evening, Pastor Carter preached a valuable lesson about Zacchaeus. Pastor entitled the Message “The Conversion of a Crook” or “Zacchaeus – Before and After” using Luke 19:1-10 on which to base this sermon and to better our understanding of this message. What is a crook? "A dishonest person; a cheat; a thief."
Zacchaeus was a wealthy man; he was a Publican, meaning he was a tax-collector from the Jewish nation, collecting taxes for the Romans. Not only was Zacchaeus a tax-collector, but also he was the Chief of these collectors.
These men were dishonest in their dealing with the Jewish people. They collected more taxes than they should have collected. The Romans demanded a certain amount for taxes, but these men took more than what was required and pocketed the rest of the money.
Because Zacchaeus was dishonest in these taxation matters – he became very rich.
**Christians should only obtain financial gains honestly!**
But when Zacchaeus heard that Jesus was coming through Jericho, he went to see Jesus. Because he was short in stature and could not see over the heads of the very large crowd who had already gathered to see Jesus, Zacchaeus climbed up a sycamore tree just to see Jesus walk by him. WHAT EFFORT DO YOU TAKE TO VISIT WITH JESUS?
When Jesus sees Zacchaeus – Jesus calls out for Zacchaeus and he comes straight down the tree and receives the Lord, JOYFULLY! Jesus made the initial effort and came to Jericho, then walked up to Zacchaeus and called out…Jesus has made the initial move to each and everyone of us too. 1 John 4:19 “We love Him, because he first loved us”.
When Zacchaeus received the Lord, he became a saved man… not because he told Jesus that he’ll give 50% of his money to the poor, or that he’d return four-fold the amount to all that he had stolen from others, but because Zacchaeus received the Lord JOYFULLY!
When Zacchaeus received the Lord, there was a change in his actions and attitude. Before, he was a greedy man, now he is a generous man.
There are only two categories of people: SAVED or LOST. There is no in-between with God. Zacchaeus saw the opportunity for salvation and he took it! The Lord Jesus called out to him and he received the Lord joyfully. Note! - This was the only time Jesus ever visited Jericho – shortly after this event, Jesus was crucified. How many chances do we have for salvation? Time is of the essence when one is talking about salvation, because there might never be a tomorrow for you.
As Zachaeis' life changed from being a crook to become an honest man, there is a life-change in every true believer's life. Joyfully receive the Lord Jesus Christ and He will save you and change you for His glory.
Please listen to this wonderful message - it will help you in your life.
We continually trust our Heavenly Father to build this church for His glory! It is our heart's desire to see people being saved in Victoria and the surrounding area and for God to bring other believers our way. Please pray with us concerning this desire. Thanks again for your prayers for this ministry. Your prayers are very much appreciated. We also count it a privilege to pray for the salvation of souls and the growth of saints in your church. Thank the Lord that "...we are labourers together with God..." 1 Corinthians 3:9.
We will continue to update you... ...as God dispenses His blessings upon us.
