Our summer is just flying by!
A few weeks ago we finished up our family camp for this year. A young man, Samuel, who received the Lord as his Savior in our December campaign attended camp, and for a couple of days his parents came to see what it was all about. They almost didn’t come, because Samuel’s mother, Isabel, had been ill and wasn’t sure she was up to the trip. But they were there, and Isabel enjoyed visiting with several of our ladies.
Our ladies are wonderful about giving the plan of salvation to those who visit, and it seems that one conversation in particular led Isabel to understand that she was lacking the most important thing in her life – eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Shortly after that conversation, she sat down with two different ladies to talk. She didn’t realize that she was with our two most ardent soul-winners of the ladies’ group. But the Lord knew and had all of the pieces in place! Within a few minutes Isabel bowed her head and made a profession of faith in Christ.
So now two members of this dear family have been saved. We are now praying that the father, Eduardo, will soon receive Jesus Christ.
Our annual Pastor’s Camp with Dr. W.L. Smith begins on February 28th. There are already more than one hundred folks signed up, pastors and workers and their families. Please pray that this will be a time of spiritual and physical refreshment for these servants of God.
Finally, we continue to ask for prayer for the rebuilding of the church in Talca, which was destroyed, along with the Pastor’s home, in the earthquake last February 27th. With so much destruction in that city, the paperwork has been a nightmare. We received word several days ago that the documents were to be ready within days and that the actual construction could begin as soon as next month. What a joy! The folks of the Bible Baptist Church of Talca have suffered and waited a full year for this moment. Once again, we want to thank those of you who gave through the Chile Relief Fund to help all of the Pastors and churches that were damaged. With the beginning of this construction, we will be applying most of the remainder of the monies that were entrusted to our care for this new work.
May the Lord richly bless each one of you.
