I was not raised in church but had good parents, and we considered ours a Christian home. I came to Christ through a Christian-school ministry. I was asked to work on a bus route sometime later and began to attend church. In 1989 my pastor took our youth group to Youth Conference in Hammond, Indiana. While Bro. Hyles preached his famous sermon, “Breathe, Sharon, Breathe,” my heart was touched to serve God with my life.
The next year at Pastors’ School, Mrs. Rose O’Brien spoke about starting a Spanish Ministry. I asked my pastor if I could start a ministry to the migrant workers in our area. He agreed, and we saw 92 trust Christ the first day. The ministry continued through the summer. The next year I began teaching an adult Sunday school class and preaching in Spanish.
When I arrived at Hyles-Anderson College, I began working in the Spanish Sunday school. The next year I began working on a bus route in Little Village, a predominately Spanish area. I began teaching at City Baptist Schools after graduation, where I have had the opportunity to serve for the last 15 years. I now manage the office and help with the Spanish translating.
My wife Karin was raised in a faithful deacon’s home. She helped her father on his bus route every week. She decided to attend Hyles-Anderson College after the death of a close friend. We met while both working security. God has blessed us with three fine boys: Zachary, Caleb, and Logan.

Zach and Karin Foust Sr. Prayer Letter: Pray Ye Therefore, Our Theme for the New Year

Zach and Karin Foust Sr. Prayer Letter: Pray Ye Therefore, Our Theme for the New YearWe hope that each of you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas season and a Happy New Year! Here in Lima, we celebrated Christmas with several evangelistic activities in and around our church in San Gabriel. Our choir and leaders did a great job in presenting a cantata and drama, and we were blessed to hold a Christmas program in a nearby public school, serving more than 600 students! This school has invited us back to do other programs and hold classes. All in all, we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas season.

The New Year is upon us! We started with Vision Night, launching our theme, “Pray Ye Therefore,” for this year 2023. We will concentrate this year on the subject of prayer. We are looking forward to a great year serving the Lord, and we ask you to join us in prayer for more workers in His field.

We held Vacation Bible School the first week of January since the children are out of school for their summer break. We had a cowboy theme and saw a record attendance, with 85 or more children present and many saved. We also saw several adults trust Jesus as their Saviour during the week.

During the summer months of January, February, and March, we will be having weeklong classes in our institute. Please be in prayer for these weeks, for those who are traveling to speak, and for many students to attend.

Camp is just around the corner! We expect to have around 200 campers and counselors. Please pray that the Lord would work in hearts and that many would make good decisions for Christ. Camp will be held starting the 30th of January.

Thank you for your prayers. We pray that the Lord would continue to bless you as you serve Him.

His for souls,

Zach and Karin Foust
