Dear Friends In Christ:
there is much to be thankful for in this past month. We were privileged to have
Thanksgiving dinner with our son Ronnie and his Family. Lou Ann is a great cook.
She prepared the traditional turkey and ham dinner, with all the trimmings.
Lonnie Jr. & Martha were back in Guadalajara.
The week of November 14-17 the BBF of Mexico (CBBM) celebrated their annual
national Fellowship meeting at Rawlings Highlands Youth Camp in Southern Mexico.
Over 450 Pastors and workers from all over Mexico were able to attend the
meeting by making the trip in rented busses. (All arrived and returned safely)
There were nineteen speakers using 2 Tim. 3:1-5 as their text who expounded the
Word of God. President Moises Salazar, pastor in Cd. Mante and the same
officials were in charge for their second year of service.
The high light of the meeting was when Bro. Alejandro Velazquez G. brought a
message on Faith Promise Mission Giving. Over 162 churches responded with a
promise of over $400,000.00 pesos per month for the work of the Lord through the
CBBM. (The exchange: About $12.00 pesos to $1.00 dollar.)
Three new mission projects were approved at this meeting: Ediberto Hermandez and
family were approved for work in Afghanistan. Alfonso Alvizo and family were
approved for work in Spain. Lucio Marquez and family were approved to work among
an indigenous tribe in Colima, Mexico. Nine other missionary projects are
presently being supported. We all rejoice in these victories for our Lord and
the work in Mexico.
blessing this month was being able to print another 1000 songbooks in Spanish
for the churches in Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries. Also we printed
another 10,000 tithing envelopes.
Beloved, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Margie and I are in our 56th years of service in old Mexico as representatives
of the BBFI and our Lord. Thank you so very much for your continued prayers and
financial support. We believe we are making a difference.
Yours for souls
Lonnie & Margie Smith
