After years of praying and plowing the ground I had the privilege of seeing faith become sight as the final detail of the first church in the village of San Francisco was completed! This was truly history in the making and the people of the community were very excited about it. We also had the privilege of having two of the Assembly of God authorities from our area with us to officially dedicate the church building and congregation to the service of the Lord as an Assembly of God church.

For our first church service Nilton, one of the village authorities and now church leader, invited people from Santa Rosa to attend the church dedication, which we were very pleased to see preset with us. This is exactly what we are praying for. That people from San Francisco will invite people from their neighboring communities to join with them in hearing the Word of God and seeing their lives transformed. Nilton is a man who has this same vision. Would you stand in prayer with me for this new Body of Believers that they would become strong in their faith and commitment to Christ and be senders and goers for the Gospel?
In addition would you please keep me in prayer for protection and a successful trip as I travel to another part of the country to meet with a pastor who is working with the Ashenika Indians? I have met with him on two prior occasions and am very interested in working with him to reach the lost among this Indian group. As we combine our resources I believe we can accomplish a great deal in establishing the Kingdom of God in this area.
God bless each of you for standing with me in prayer and support for this tremendous work of God and seeing the fruit of our labor together. May you be blessed in every way!
Yours in Harvest of Souls,
