Dear Friends In Christ:
We honor Dr. John Rawlings and the Rawlings Foundation. The
results of his devotion to missions and building camps and Bible Colleges around
the world will only be known in Eternity. He is rejoicing with other great BBFI
leaders who have gone on before. We remember the Rawlings family is our prayers.
The Mexican BBF Pastor’s annual Retreat and Fellowship will be conducted at the
Rawlings Highland Camp south of Mexico City April 2-5 this year. The theme is:
New Commandment I Give”. Erick Nobles is Special Speaker. Please pray for
traveling mercies and the meeting.
Materials for this year’s 50 DVBS have
been ordered from “Mensaje de Vida”. The total cost will be $2500.00 after a 40%
discount on the materiel and free private delivery through another missionary.
God has been supplying the necessary funds for these schools for over 50 years,
through you. Last year there was a soul saved for every $1.25 given for this
worthy cause. If you can help us again this year it will be greatly appreciated.
Last month we related the results of one of the SMITE
trips and the joy of seeing people saved and surrendered to the Lord. These
groups came to Camp Rio Escondido from 1962-2002. Each summer there were from 5
to 7 groups. Many Young people found God’s will in their live and many souls
were saved. Through the years over 50 mission buildings were built by these
groups. We received many responses from this letter. One of those who responded
was from Vernon Brewer: “I was on that trip and it changed my life. Now 50 years
later I am distributing Bibles (8 million) and building churches (Over 1,400)
all around the world. God used you in a huge way in my life. Blessings. “
Only God knows all that has been done through our ministry. But one thing we
do know, this ministry has been made possible through your prayers and the
financial support given to our work. God continues to bless the churches with
souls and since each church we have established has a Mexican pastor, the
churches have continued to grow and have souls saved.
souls in Mexico,
