We want to share with you some of the activities of a few of our students at the Rio Grande Bible College over Easter week. Viridiana went to Port Isabel on the Gulf of Mexico to work with children at a Hispanic church. She was appalled at the number of children that are left without care. She sees this area as a mission field and is sorry she already has summer ministry plans and can’t return there.
Yalid went to Kansas to minister at a very small Hispanic church. They went door to door especially looking for Latin Americans to invite them to their special event but didn’t find any. Our student felt discouraged because he was the leader of the team. They had a big meal prepared but those that came were almost all Caucasian Americans. There was a ton of food left over. One Hispanic family took it all and that food opened the door to 8 hungry Hispanic families. God does work in mysterious ways.
Alex went to Iowa. He was prepared to do “missionary work”, preach, evangelize, etc. But he also ended up doing some things no one else knew how to do. He replaced a broken toilet. The name of the game is flexibility. Pray for Alex who is slated to minister in the Amazon jungle of Peru this summer.
What a privilege to be a part of the training of these special servants of the Lord. Their next big event is the Spring Music Recital April 30 (their final exam)!
In June we will be driving to Portland, Oregon to the wedding of our grandson Josiah Blycker; he wants Carrie his bride to enter to cello music and asked Grandma to play. Phil will arrange the music. Then it’s on to Los Angeles for a Camino Global conference for a week. We’re looking forward to seeing some supporters along the way.
Thanks so much for your gifts and prayers,
Your Musicianaries to Hispanics,
Phil & Arleen Blycker
