From the bottom of the world, we say, “Hello!” From the bottom of our hearts, we say, “Thank you!” Words can hardly describe the love and friendship we have with you. To be in service with you for Him is what it’s all about. As Paul said, “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” (Philippians 1:3) There is so much work for us to do here, and your prayers and financial support make it possible.
The new church in Formosa is the stronger of the two that we planted. Every week there are visitors, salvations, and baptisms. Brother Molina has room to double the size of the church, and at this pace, it truly is a possibility. On April 8-10, we’ll have a special meeting for the church in La Rioja. I will probably spend more time there in the near future than in Formosa. We are also helping an older church plant (20 years old) that is in really bad shape. The previous pastor shut the church down and just lived there. The few remaining folks had to rent a building nearby. They now have possession of the church and are rebuilding. We are supplying tracts and some money. When I have time—what a luxury that would be—we plan on helping them with soul winning. I have also preached a few times for them, as they are seeking a new pastor.
His power was evident in our personal soul-winning efforts, as we were able to lead 6 to saving faith and give 15 Bibles to those who didn’t have the Word of God. A few of these Bibles have been given to young people (10 to 22 years in age) because they needed His Word and the parents could not afford to buy them Bibles. Your generous giving makes this possible. It is a part of the ministry I enjoy so much, as I remember the Bible I used when I first received Christ. I still have and cherish that Bible.
As always, please pray for our safety and health. Pray that we will be able to continue the work without interruption. Pray for the new churches and the seminary. The new year just started, and we have 25 students! To God be the glory!
