Dear Friends In Christ:
We begin a new year with anticipation. Praising God for a
wonderful year in 2011. Through our ministry we saw over 4,000 souls receive
Christ as personal Savior in just 14 churches and 60 DVBS. Some 116 other
churches that we have had part in building no longer share reports with us but
God certainly keeps the records. Our printing ministry was good and much
literature and Spanish songbooks were supplied to the churches. Our family has
enjoyed strength and health to continue in His work.
In 1963 ROSCOE
BREWER, Youth Pastor at Tulsa Baptist Temple at the time, contacted me to begin
a new concept in reaching the youth of America for Christ and reaching lost
souls for His kingdom. The concept is S.M.I.T.E. (Student Missionary Intern
Training for Evangelism). This concept outlined three prospects: 1). Taking a
group trip to a mission field for 7 to 10 days. 2). A Youth spending a summer on
the field with approved missionary. 3). The possibility of a youth or couple
spending a year on the field with approved missionary. A must see:

Kansas City, MO, Lynchburg, VA and other areas.
History has shown that
this concept has been used by hundreds of churches and thousands of young people
have been involved on almost every mission field of the world and involving
hundreds of missionaries.
The resulted in our ministry is the building of
over 100 of 130 works we have had a part in. Most are now self - supporting
churches. This is only part of the legacy of ROSCOE BREWER who went home to be
with the Lord this month. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.
Beloved we wish to thank you for your faithfulness in prayer
and financial support for our ministry. We believe that the best is yet to come.
Our churches are stronger. The Mexican pastors have matured in the Lord. Our
CBBM has become strong missionary organization and are reaching other countries
with the gospel. Praise God we are permitted to see these marvelous things.
Yours for souls
Lonnie & Margie Smith
