Dear Friends In Christ:
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH OF YOU
It is hard to believe that we have reached another December.
December is one of the best months of our year in Mexico for evangelism. The
mind of the people has turned toward the birth of Christ and what it means in
our lives. Please pray that many will be saved through the special services
conducted the month.
Last month we asked you to pray for the National
Baptist Bible Fellowship of Mexico that was conducted November 12-16 at Highland
Baptist Youth camp south of Mexico City. The capacity of the camp has been
increased to house 700 people. This year there were over 325 out of town visitor
for the conference. (All arrived safe and were safe in their return home) Each
year the Faith Promise Missions Office is received at this time. Over $ FIVE
MILLION pesos were promised for the mission work of the CBBM. New officials of
the Fellowship were not elected this year due an ongoing process with the
Federal Government concerning our status with the monies collected for missions.
Please make this a matter of prayer.
Beloved we are amazed at the
blessings of our God upon the churches of Mexico. Especially the youth are
coming alive for our Lord. Church attendance is up and souls are being saved. We
wish to thank each of you for your prayers and your financial help toward our
ministry. God has given us health and strength to daily be a part of this great
souls in Mexico,
Lonnie & Margie Smith
PS: LOREN SNYDER went home to be with the Lord this past
month. Loren was a charter member of Canton Baptist Temple, Ohio and the right
hand of Pastor Harold Henniger. He was very mission minded, through the church
and for many years also personally supported several missionaries. We became
great friends in the first mission conference of Canton Baptist Temple in the
1960’s. He was a great help personally to our ministry and us.
