“When you go on the internet, please pray for the Hoffman Family – your missionaries to Cyberspace.”

Volume 35 Issue 2 (March/April 2022)


Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Latest News:

  • Bob has been asked to preach at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Dallas again on April 24. Please pray for the messages and the people.

Church Website Ministry:

  • I was contacted by Pastor Brett Skillen, the new Pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Joplin Missouri. I had “rescued” their domain (bethelkjv.com) a while ago, and he wanted to get a basic website going. The goal was to have his son take over and update the website when he finished with classes. I set up a basic WordPress website with the information and a few of the pictures Pastor Skillen provided to me. We set up a secure login for his son so that when time became available for him, he could update the website.
  • Pastor Mike O’Neal of Glenwood Baptist Church in Jacksonville Florida contacted me. Pastor O’Neal has a website called The Bible-Believing Fundamentalist that was on another hosting service that was going commercial, and had stopped functioning. Brother Mike wanted to know if I could help him host and restore the website. I was able to find archived copies of the website on the internet. Using these copies of his website, I converted his old content to a WordPress website. It took a while but we were able to recover all of the content including great sermon outlines. Check out Pastor O’Neal’s great website!
  • Brother Mike was having to update his websites using old software on very old computers using very old versions of Windows operating systems. The old computers kept failing and he has had to keep trying to find old computers that would run his old software. After we got brothermike.com rebuilt, Pastor O’Neal wanted to know if I could rebuild their church website for Glenwood Baptist Church (glenwoodbc.org) on WordPress. I was able to get most of the content over to WordPress, and Brother Mike was able to update his outdated content. He now has both websites up on WordPress and has the ability to update them using his current computers.
  • I was contacted by a member of West Main Baptist Church in Henderson Texas. I had an “unofficial” website up for them. The church was looking for a new pastor and wanted to set up a permanent website that they could update. We registered the domain westmainbc.com and I set up a basic WordPress website for them. I was able to provide some training for the church so they could update the website on their own.

Bible Correspondence Courses: We want to thank Joyce Hall, Lydia Henrici, Lorraine Meier, JL and Florence Smith, and Oleta Ferrell for helping with the Bible Correspondence courses over the last quarter.

  • 1st Quarter Stats:  Lessons: 749, Certificates: 29, Students: 136, of which 16 are prisoners. Lessons were mailed to: Australia, Canada, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Uganda, United Kingdom and USA.

Here are some comments we received from people that are taking the correspondence courses:

  • A prisoner in Arkansas writes about the course The New Life in Christ 2 – This course is a reassurance of Christ’s return and the blessings we will receive for following in His footsteps.

Tract Ministry: We have “given out” over 146,000 Bible Tracts online.


Social Networking Outreach: 

  • Facebook – 3.1K Friends (Facebook no longer showing exact numbers)
  • Mewe – 8.4K Friends (Max friends Mewe shows. Way above this number)
  • Spreely – 2479 Friends

Glenwood Baptist Church Jacksonville Florida

I worked on rebuilding the website for Pastor Mike O’Neal of Glenwood Baptist Church in Jacksonville Florida (The Bible-Believing Fundamentalist).

Brother Mike was having to update his websites using old software on very old computers using very old versions of Windows operating systems. The old computers kept failing and he has had to keep trying to find old computers that would run his old software.

Post Surgery Day 1045

Well, I got the results back from the PSA test. Mixed results.

The PSA was 0.08. My doctor thinks it may be from from some leftover prostate from when he removed the prostate, he doesn’t think it is returning cancer since it has been almost three years since the prostate was remove.

When the PSA gets above .05 he tells me they need to monitor it.

The doctor said that if the cancer is indeed returning, it is very treatable with radiation.

We will do a follow-up in three months.

Bob and Maureen Hoffman January/February 2022 Newsletter

“When you go on the internet, please pray for the Hoffman Family – your missionaries to Cyberspace.”

Volume 35 Issue 1 (January/February/2022)


Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Latest News:

Bob once again was privileged to preach at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Dallas Texas (the Christmas service and the New Year’s eve service).


Church Website Ministry:

  • A Pastor’s Comment: I want to take a moment and say that I am very grateful for the technology that is available to us today. As the Pastor of a small Church, Wilson Ave Baptist in Aurora, MO, we are limited in what we are able to do. But, through the assistance of Bro Bob Hoffman, who is a Missionary to Cyberspace, we have had a website up and running for 11 months and in that time we have been able to reach 16 countries and have had over 1000 contact to our site. Only God knows the effects of this and how many lives have been touched. But, through this we are able to literally reach around the world. Please pray that we will continue to reach more and more for the Glory of God. If your Church needs help getting started, please contact Bro Bob Hoffman at cyber-missions.com.
  • Back in July of 2021 Missionary Joseph Childers (Missionary to Grenada) approached me. He has been on the mission field for five years now. Joseph had a website up. He loved the design, but in order to be a good steward he wanted to move the website to a less expensive host. They regularly update their praises and prayer requests, and keep all their prayer letters up on the website. He also had an email account he used with the website. Brother Childers had looked into moving it before, but was told that because of its underlying platform it would need to be recreated. I was able to take the content he had and created a similar website using WordPress. We still had the issue of the domain he had (childers2grenada.org). The current host he had did not give any access to the DNS records, and the domain was registered in the name of the provider. I lost contact with Brother Joseph, who then reestablished contact with me in early January (2022). He had major problems with phone failures and computer failures. Brother Childers had the information needed to transfer the domain away from his current provider. We transferred the domain out, and the new website went live.  I was able to get all of Brother Joseph’s old emails going back to 2013 moved over to the new account. I spent time with him on the phone and showed him how to update the website. We both worked to put up all of their prayer letters on the new website.
  • Brother Joseph Childers wanted to put up a website for their church, Lifeline Baptist Church in Grenada, including information on their Christian school Lifeline Baptist Christian Academy. Pastor Childers tells me that only two churches in Grenada currently have a web presence, although the island is starting to develop wider internet access. Brother Joseph decided on the domain lbcgrenada.com. I registered the domain and installed WordPress, and set up a basic website. He became proficient very quickly while working on his missionary website and was able to finish adding content to the church/school website.

Bible Correspondence Courses: We want to thank Katherine Feguer, Lydia Henrici, Rebecca Fitzsimmons, Lorraine Meier, J.L. & Florence Smith for helping with the Bible Correspondence courses over the last quarter.

  • 4th Quarter Stats:  Lessons: 912, Certificates: 37, Students: 112, of which 16 are prisoners
  • 2021 Stats: Lessons: 3464, Certificates: 103. We saw 2 people make salvation decisions. We had students in  USA, Canada, England, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Liberia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Philippines, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Tongo, Trinidad, and Zambia

Here are some comments we received from people that are taking the correspondence courses:

  • From a prisoner in AR “ I thoroughly enjoy this course and am learning so much from it. I thank you and I appreciate the time and the effort that it takes to make a Bible study such as this possible!”

This is from a prisoner in TX… Thank you for the Christmas card. May God continue to bless each and every one of you and your family and church. Please know that your efforts in building my spiritual abilities are not effortless. I truly enjoy studying God’s Word and I truly enjoy the results from it. Also know nothing comes easy and I battle every day for the glory of God. God knows my weaknesses and I am daily reminding God of those. Truly God hears and answers those who call His name, those who humble themselves and realize that their own efforts are effortless. But your love and spiritual input, through these lessons are key to my spiritual growth, so I personally thank Bob and Maureen and all the personnel  at FamilyNet International. God bless.

Joseph Childers (Missionary to Grenada) Part 2

I had worked with Joseph Childers, missionary to Grenada, to get their website (childers2grenada.org) converted over to WordPress, and onto our hosting service.

After we completed that website, Brother Joseph wanted to put up a website for their church, Lifeline Baptist Church in Grenada, including information on their Christian school Lifeline Baptist Christian Academy.

Pastor Childers tells me that only two churches in Grenada currently have a web presence, although the island is starting to develop wider internet access.

Brother Joseph decided on the domain lbcgrenada.com. I registered the domain and installed WordPress, and set up a basic website.

He became proficient very quickly while working on his missionary website and was able to finish adding content to the church/school website.
