Praise the Lord for all His blessings. We have two items of good news.
First, last night we held commencement exercises for our Bible institute. This is our church planting and national pastor training ministry. One young woman and three young men graduated after completing their four year course with us. These young men are all about to go into full time ministry and have a burden for the regions in Mexico from which they are originally. We are so proud of them and the way God has molded them in their time with us.
The Bible institute is probably one of the most demanding segments of our missionary work but aside from personal soul winning, it is definitely the most rewarding. Having the opportunity to see churches planted and strengthened by the nationals we train is worth each drop of sweat and every penny invested.
As the school year closes, we have two projects for which we desperately need your help. The first is a dorm remodel. We began renovation on this building several years ago and the project got bogged down. We need to get it finished before August of this year and it will probably only take about $10,000 (US Dollars). The second is a class room and chapel space renovation. This building has good bones but needs a facelift and some furniture. We need 150 chairs and 15 tables. We also need to update the lighting and install air conditioners. In all, for this project, we need about $12,000 (US Dollars). Please pray for the funds to come in and about having a part in these projects.
The second item of good news is about our big day we had the last Sunday in April. Our goal was to fill our auditorium which has a capacity of 915. Praise the Lord, after a lot of prayer, fasting and hard work, we had 906 present that day in church! Over 120 walked the aisle for salvation and many were baptized.
We believe in the local church as the center of Gods work on earth and are grateful for being able to lead a church like Mount Hebron Baptist Church.
Thank you for praying for and supporting us on the mission field. God is good.
Yours in His Service,
