JANUARY, 2017 NEWSLETTER
Thanks to the faithfulness and grace of God and brethren like yourselves who have prayed for us and helped us financially, we just completed 34 years on the mission field the end of December. So much has happened and been accomplished over the years. As many of you know, God was able to raise up more than 40 churches in a place that was hostile to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Verses like “if God be for us, who can be against us” were quoted often over the years to encourage us and the Mexican brethren. We were met with resistance in EVERY village where we were able to establish a church. All of this is documented on the Internet. I can say without a doubt, “We are MORE than conquerors through Him who loved us!” To God be the glory!
Recently, we were able to start another church in a place called “Dos Lagunas” (Two Lagoons). Several families have been saved there and others are talking about coming to Christ. One of the men who bowed the knee to Jesus was very hostile towards the Gospel for many years.
“After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” – Rev. 7:9-12
