We want to thank you for your prayers, gifts and encouragement. We are grateful for your part in our ministry to Hispanics, an important part in our global vision.
Immediately following the graduation here at the Rio Grande Bible College we made a quick trip out to Spokane, WA to deliver a used van to our son Jonathan, a pastor who will with his wife, Blair be expecting their 6th child in August. We were able to also minister in various places en route.
Our son Benjamin and his family passed through on their way to Mexico as first term missionaries. Soon after that our son Timothy and his family passed through on their way to Oregon for their furlough. We are so proud of them! Please pray for them and their families.
After washing our clothes and catching up on mail we set out on a two month trip to the Midwest. Michigan was the furthest point north, Kansas was the furthest point west and Pennsylvania was the furthest point east. Our Lord was faithful in guarding us each step of the way and it was a privilege to be His ambassadors in many homes, camps and churches.
Soon we will take part in the annual retreat of the faculty/staff of the Rio Grande Bible College. Then we will fly down to Southern Mexico to Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas for a music camp among some evangelical churches. This is an area where some are being persecuted for their faith. Religious leaders link up with political leaders to deny property rights, water and electric power and freedom to worship. We have been asked to lead the Mixed Choir during the week, teach brass & woodwind instruments and music theory. After the camp we will minister in some area churches on the following week in the area. Thanks for your prayers for that special ministry.
Upon returning to South Texas we will be starting the fall semester of the Rio Grande Bible College. Pray for those students who have been accepted but have not yet received their student visas to study in the seminary. We hope you have a great summer!
