Phil and Jean Thomson
Deacon and Wife
Phil was saved as a teenager after a Jack Wyrtzen Crusade in his home area. He met my wife at Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music where he was training to be a Missionary Pilot. The Lord directed him away from piloting and into aviation electronics (Avionics). They served for 15 years with New Tribes Mission (now known as Ethnos 360), 9 years in Douglas, AZ and then after deputation, 3 1/2 years in Senegal, West Africa. After leaving the mission, we have served in our local churches wherever the Lord has directed us. We came to the Boise area in February, 2007, and immediately began attending Fellowship Baptist Church. Phil has served here as a Sunday School teacher, Deacon, and as the Truth Trackers children's ministry director.
