Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name
under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Exciting things are happening here. We have been able to finally finish the all-purpose building. It has been a long process and are so excited to be able to use it now. Due to our low attendance in Sunday School, we decided to make some changes. Now we are just having one combined class, like a children’s Bible club for all ages. We are using the all-purpose building and are picking up children in two different neighborhoods. We have been doing this for the past three weeks, and it has been a blessing. Today we had 30 in Sunday School including children and adults. We have actually had more adults coming now than before. Praise the Lord!!!
We are very busy tying up all the loose ends before coming back to the States. God has blessed with good weather and health to be able to be moving right along. Next week Jed and Gloria Duarte, the missionary family taking over the work while we are in the states, will be moving our way, and we will have a week together before we leave. We are excited about them coming and know they will be a blessing to the people here.
I want to thank all the churches that have already contacted us about coming and giving an update in person. We are excited about being able to be with you. If you would like for us to come by your way please let us know through our emails or phone number located on the left column of this letter. Our goal is not to raise more support but to visit churches that have been faithfully praying for us and supporting us.
Pray for us as our flights were cancelled once, but we were able to reschedule. We start our trip with a four hour bus trip to Sinop on the 16th. We fly out of Sinop on the 17th and arrive in Fort Lauderdale on the 18th. Then we will drive over to Pensacola for a few days to see our children that are there and finally up to Jasper, Tennessee.
PRAISE: 1. Our Sunday School 2. Bible study with Daniel 3. The all-purpose building is finished and being used.
PRAY: 1. Salvation of Maycon and his wife Mainara. 2. Our trip to the USA. 3. That we can be a blessing while visiting churches.
We want to thank you so much for your faithfulness.
Joyfully serving Him,
Stephen, Kelly, and family
