Dear Friends In Christ
During the month of May each of
us was in someway involved with graduation. How wonderful it is to know that BBC
is still graduating missionaries and full time workers. Here in Mexico there are
several Bible Colleges that are training full time workers also. All had
graduation ceremonies. Our first and biggest one is BIBLE BAPTIST INSTITUTE in
Cd. Mante. Bro. James L. Smith was the first director in the 50’s. In 1959, BILL
& QUSSIE HARVEY began their ministry and completely revived the Institute. It
was my privilege to teach tjhere two years.
This May the BBI celebrated
their 50th anniversary under the leadership of Bro. Bill Harvey and the last
several years under the direction of LARRY AND SHARRON LILLIE. There have been
706 pastors, missionaries and full time workers that have received their
training at BBI. Several graduates were speakers at this celebration.
Anchor Theological Seminary has graduated 248 students in the past several
years. Three more received their MTH or PHD this years. There are several others
still working of degrees.
Our granddaughter Courtenay received her PHD at
the University of Indiana this year. She has accepted a position working for the
school in her field of Management Science of Human Resources. Also grandson Ryan
has received his License as Flight Instructor and is working at McCreery
Aviation in McAllen Texas. Our son Ron received his PHD in Psychology and Family
counseling from LBU.
We ask you to continue to pray for JOAN KAHLER and
the work among the Tarahumara Indians in northern Mexico. She has chosen to
remain in the work after the passing of Bro. Louis. They also graduated several
students this year. You may review the work by referencing their new website:

you for your prayers and financial help for our ministry. Our desire is that God
would continue to richly bless you and your work.
Yours for souls in Mexico,
Lonnie & Margie Smith
