Dear Friends In Christ:
In spite of the increased violence of the drug cartel the
busload of people from the churches in Reynosa arrived and has returned safely
from the annual pastors retreat and National BBF of Mexico Fellowship. A large
musical group from the First Bible Baptist Church of Reynosa was invited to the
Mexican retreat and Fellowship meeting and was a great blessing to all with
their music during their time together. This group has also been invited to play
at the National Bible Baptist Int. meeting that will be held in February 16-19
2014 that will be conducted in Austin, Texas with Bro. Mike Marcellus. They have
accepted this honored invitation.
The material for 2013 DVBS has been
separated into packages that supply books for 150 - 200 children in each DVBS.
Bro. Angel Zapata has picked up the packages and they are in Mexico and will be
distributed to those churches that will reach the boys and girls with the gospel
of Christ. We still need your to prayers for these DVBS that many children will
attend and those that are lost will be saved.
The last week of February
Jack Baskin and wife Shirley visited with several veteran Mexico Missionaries.
He shared with us his burden and vision for reaching the almost 50 million
Spanish speaking people within the borders of the USA. He has developed and used
a special plan in several countries to reach people. His desire is to begin a
Spanish Bible College in the USA, Using a modular system that will teach the
whole Bible to young Latino men in a short time. They can then reach the Spanish
Speaking peoples by beginning new works among them.
My part was to
prepare a curriculum in Spanish. For the passed two months I have been busy
translating several books by Dr. John Phillips and using materials that I have
prepared and used over our years in Mexico, I have presented them with a
suggested curriculum to be used in a Spanish Bible College. It can also be used
in local churches in night classes. God is moving in this matter. Please join us
in prayer that this project will become a reality.
Beloved once again we
thank you for your faithfulness in prayers and financial help toward our
ministry. Churches are growing and souls are being saved because of your love
souls in Mexico,
Lonnie & Margie Smith
