ABOUT US

Hi, we're Bob and Darlene McCoy.

In the beginning of 2007 God began stirring the hearts of Bob and Evelyn that in order for the ministry to realize lasting success there needed to be a successor.  It was at this same time that Bob Jr and Darlene were also feeling it was time to start re-engaging the call to missions that God had placed in their hearts.  In 2007 Bob Jr made a trip with Bob Sr and God confirmed this.  In 2008 Bob and Darlene made their first trip together.  This was the beginning of a 7 year transition period where Bob and Darlene would go from pastoring a church in Michigan, to taking over the directorship of Vessels of Mercy Ministries and becoming full time missionaries.

Bob and Darlene are still directing the ministry, and as such spend the majority of the year traveling from country to country in Asia.  Bob and Evelyn are not able to travel as much but still make at least one trip overseas a year.  During the rest of the year they are holding down the base by maintaining the post office correspondence, finances, reports, and regularly connecting with supporters through personal and church visits.

Due to Covid-19 the countries that we are working in, in Asia, are closed to visitors.  So we are currently running the ministry remotely from the States.  During this time we have been asking God for wisdom on how to remain effective and how to accomplish all we are called to do.  We have implemented…

HISTORY

In 1987 God opened the doors for Bob and Evelyn McCoy to head for the Philippines as missionaries, along with their 3 children Sharon, Bob Jr., and Daniel.  Serving overseas in missions was the fruition of a seed that God had placed in Bob Sr’s heart when he was a young man in the U.S. Navy and in Evelyn’s heart since she was a child in church hearing the stories of missionaries.  The family’s first assignment was assisting another family in running a Bible School in remote Mountain Province of the northern Philippines.  A couple years later, God led them to relocate closer to the capital city of Manila where Bob Sr. would help establish and run a Bible School there as well.  It was during these years that they were also active pastoring a church and traveling around the country conducting Pastors and Leaders seminars.  

            It was during Bob Sr’s time in the Navy that God had placed a burden on his heart for the nation of Viet Nam.  By 1995, the children had all graduated from High School and were starting their own lives and families   back in the States.  God opened the door for Bob and Evelyn to move to Viet Nam to serve there.  Once again they started their first 2 years by serving under another established missions organization, and from there branched out into other areas.  One of those areas was helping to establish an international church in Hanoi.  Initially, it was a point of fellowship and contact for international people living in the area.  It also became a huge connection hub with people from all over Asia.  It opened doors to many other countries.

          One of these connections was a man who introduced Bob Sr. to a ministry in Bangladesh.  It was through these divine appointments that Vessels of Mercy Ministries’ footprint started growing to include projects in Thailand, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal, and other surrounding Asian countries.  Bob and Evelyn retained Viet Nam as their home base, but spent more and more time traveling to other nations.  They were involved in many, various types of outreaches that involved both spiritual training, emergency relief, and livelihood projects.  It has always been the heartbeat of the ministry to demonstrate God’s mercy by meeting both spiritual and physical needs.

FUTURE

We are so excited about the ongoing partnership we have with the churches, pastors, and people of Bangladesh, the Philippines, and Vietnam. We know the Lord has sent us to them by His grace have been able to serve them as they have needed.

 

We also know that God likes to broaden borders and relationships and therefore, we expect our mission area to grow. We wait eagerly to see how He'll work, who He'll send, and how He'll save in the years to come!
