It is exciting to see God work and show Himself strong! He has done just that over that past few months in our lives, as well as the work in Ireland. Revelation 3:8 says, “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” It’s thrilling to know that He knows us better than anyone else. He sees our actions and knows the motives behind the actions as well. He has truly opened amazing doors to share the Gospel in Ireland and the UK.
“The Light of the World” Shines in Ireland!
Since our latest prayer letter, we have had the opportunity to produce and distribute our second phase of 1,000 DVDs in Ireland. After contacting several missionaries, I traveled up to Limerick, Ireland, to help fellow missionary Keith Hamilton distribute DVDs in his city. The Lord gave us good weather to complete the distribution. We did not have anyone turn down this gift, and we ask for your prayers that they will allow it to affect their hearts. Afterwards I drove five hours north to Londonderry, Northern Ireland to help a local pastor. It was my first time meeting him, and we enjoyed good fellowship togeth-er. I was excited to be able to extend our influ-ence with this DVD project and help distribute in his area as well. Then, to make a complete circle, I made my way over to Belfast, Northern Ireland, to work with another local pastor to distribute DVDs door to door. As you may know, Belfast has a troubled history, so your nerves can be a bit edgy while out distributing. After an hour I had a man stop me to ask me if I had placed a DVD in his postbox. I told him “Yes, I did.” I was expecting him to be upset with me; but after hearing my answer, a smile came across his face, and he said, “Good, I’m glad your spreading His Word!” After talking with him for a few minutes, I discovered he had been saved years ago while living elsewhere in the UK. It was a blessing to my heart to run into another brother in Christ. Please pray for the thousands who have now received these Gospel DVDs directly into their homes, along with those witnessed to through door-to-door soul winning.
We have also started a website for the DVDs so those in Ireland can view it anytime online. You may watch it as well by visiting thelightvideo.com. I also have enclosed a tri-fold brochure with this prayer letter about our 10-Phase DVD Project. If you could help us in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. Please consider sponsoring ¼, ½, or even an entire phase of this project.
August Missions Trip
We are still planning our missions trip to Ireland, and the dates will be August 7-18, 2014. At this time we have several people interested in this opportunity, but we still need a few more to commit to this trip in order to continue as planned. If you would be interested in being a part of this trip, please contact me through e-mail as soon as possible. We only need 2-3 more people to move forward. Ireland is an English-speaking country, and it will be a trip you will never forget!
(1) Please continue to pray for our immigration situation, (2) for the health of my wife with her migraines, (3) for Phase 3 of the DVD project, which we hope to distribute in June, (4) for hearts to be open to the Gospel, (5) for safety as I travel, and (6) for wisdom and direction for our children as they are making important decisions about colleges and their future.
Please know that we love and appreciate each of you. Thank you for the privilege and honor of allowing us to partner with you for Irish souls.
Serving the Master,
Bro. Elias (Robyn, Joshua, Kendalle, and Suzanne) Correa
