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.
