Dear Friends In Christ:
Randy Loyd and a group of over forty people from Bedford
Church of Bedford, Texas came to Brownsville, Texas during the first part of
August to help rebuild the church building of Joel Olazaran. They also plan to
add an additional twenty feet for more needed space. Joel was saved under our
ministry in Monterrey, studied at our Bible College and began his church in
The group worked on the building during the day, and
conducted a DVBS in the evening. There were over 100 children the first day. At
the closing night there were over 250 people present and the meeting had to be
held outside for lack of space. FORTY-THREE souls were saved due to their
labors. Bro. Randy told me that he had witnessed to a city official who had
inspected the building. Later under conviction he attended an English Baptist
church and accepted Christ as Savior.
Words cannot express our gratitude
for the faithfulness of those who have prayed and given toward the efforts of
DVBS each year. For over 50 years we have been able to furnish material for the
DVBS that could possible reached 10,000 boys and girls. There have been many
Mexican pastors and their helpers who have seen these young souls saved. The
records show that for each $1.00 given to DVBS there has been a soul saved. I
believe this is the best investment in missionary work.
Because of your
help financially we have furnished materials for DVBS for churches in the
following areas: In Metro Monterrey 25 churches; in Indigenous Tribes of Mexico
5 works; in Saltillo 5 works; in North Mexico border from Matamoros, Reynosa,
Nuevo Laredo and Piedras Negras 20 works; in small towns of Nuevo Leon 10 works.
Among the reports many have been saved in every church: 65, 61, 44, 30, and some
had 15 & 20 saved. Over all an average of 30 souls have been saved in the
churches. Praise God!
Beloved we thank you for your prayers and help for
us to continue in the work. We ask you to pray for the 2nd Latin American
Fellowship and Conference that will be celebrated in Bogotá Columbia the first
part of October 2012. We were able to help two of our Reynosa pastors get
tickets to fly to this meeting from McAllen Texas.
Yours for souls
