I have been trying to get this newsletter out for the last month,
but God is blessing and the work is thriving so there is no shortage of things to do. Thank you for your patience. I’ll
start working on the next newsletter now, so I can get it out in a more timely fashion!
God is blessing in so many ways. Several of our young men have been attending Bible College
here on the island and Bro. Nick Jitman has completed phase one of his education at Trinidad Bible Institute. We rejoice
with him in what God has done thus far. Keep him in prayer as he continues to serve the Lord and as he continues his Bible
Earlier in the year Trinidad celebrated “Carnival”, which is similar to
Mardi Gras. It is a time of lewdness and promiscuity throughout the island. During this time each year we make a concerted
effort to teach the biblical viewpoint regarding relationships, that all sex outside of marriage is sin. We had special
events that addressed this topic specifically with our teens, young adults, and married couples. However, because Carnival
is viewed by many as simply part of Trinidad’s culture, there are many people who struggle with temptation and put themselves
in compromising situations during this time. “But thanks be to God who giveth us the victory through our Lord
God has also been blessing the ladies’ ministry of our church. Marie, recently took
a number of our ladies through a seven week Bible study on the life of Gideon. Our church has benefited greatly from these
types of studies and we have seen tremendous growth in many of these ladies!
One of my favorite things, as a missionary, is when I get to help someone proclaim their
allegiance to Christ by following the Lord in believer’s baptism! I recently had the privilege of helping five people
do that. What a joy it is to see people buried with Him in baptism and raised to walk in newness of life!
We are still in a “holding pattern” regarding our
paperwork for residency. Our residency hasn’t been finalized as of yet because there is a back log of applications
that the immigration division is working on. However, we do have enough paperwork in order that they will allow us to come
in and get an extension every 90 days. We have been able to do that several times now without any problem. At a time when
most missionaries have left, we are thankful that God has seen fit to keep us here. Please continue to pray that God’s
will would be done in this matter.
