    ~ Separated to the work in Ecuador, South America ~ Dear friends and family, We hope that you all are doing well. We have been watching the weather and have children being affected by it. It seems that Ole’ Man Winter has finally come calling up north!! It is easy to forget when you live on the equator and it is pretty much same-o, same-o all the time. I wanted to give a short update on my email last week concerning things here in Ecuador. It would seem that things have been blown out of proportion on the news-surprise- and,… Read more: Booher, Rudi, Carla and Family
  • Sullivan, Henry, Grace and Family
    ~ Separated to the work in Columbia; South America ~ Dear Prayer Warriors, Henry recently sent me a detailed accounting of what’s been transpiring with them over the past month. In this post I have tried to put together a summary of it, for the sake of prayer. Richard. The Sullivans have moved from Medellin, back to the town of Nuqui, in the coastal region. They have all recovered mostly from sickness that went through the family, except that Grace is still affected by a sinus infection. She is also dealing with issues relating to her pregnancy, and so we… Read more: Sullivan, Henry, Grace and Family

  • Enns, Ed and Patty
    ~ Tribal work in Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Burkina Faso; Discipleship; Conference speaker ~ Ed Enns, Ivory Coast, Africa. Had a good week of teaching two teaching Elders from two different towns in Ghana and Togo this past week. Following the pattern of 2 Timothy 2:2, these brethren along with others that I’ve had the privilege to reach recently are teaching their own people as well as extending the reach of the gospel of grace beyond themselves. The word indicates that in the latter days that men will no longer heed sound doctrine opting for a self-centered, feel-good experience. With… Read more: Enns, Ed and Patty
  • Skiles, Jerry and Sharon
    ~ Itinerant ministry worldwide; Discipleship; Tribal work in Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Burkina Faso ~ Jerry Skiles, Ivory Coast. Almost all of the folks in the Loron and Loma Churches are farmers and grow their own food. Last year’s rains were very bad, and the food for the Christians and non-Christians was minimal. People in the villages died due to the famine, but I did not hear of any Christians dying due to the famine. The Christians may not have died due to the famine, but they suffered as they lived in communities of pain and death. In September the… Read more: Skiles, Jerry and Sharon
  • Booher, Myles and Mary
    ~ Serving in Ecuador; South America ~ Myles and Mary Booher, Ecuador, South America. We are expecting another baby which, Lord willing, will make its appearance next June. Thank you, dear family in Christ, for praying for us and supporting us financially. It is humbling to live on money given to the Lord’s work, and makes us want to always be sure we are indeed in the “work” God has for us. It calls for constant direction from the Lord which we desire, and seek to ask God for more often. I (Mary writing this time) thought for some variety… Read more: Booher, Myles and Mary
  • Ball, Mike, Faith and Family
    ~ Serving in Loreto, Zacatecas ~ BALL BEARINGS Here is a report on what has been going on in Loreto during our time here in Wyoming. I will begin by telling you about a brother by the name of Juan Jose from the neighboring town of Crisostomos. He was one of the elders in Loreto when we first named elders over 15 years ago. Because of problems in his family he resigned as an elder and because of these same problems eventually left the church (after a few years). Last fall he and his wife returned to the congregation along… Read more: Ball, Mike, Faith and Family
  • Barnard, Jesse and Tess
    ~ Serving in Ecuador; South America ~ Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for all of your prayers since our last update! God used my swollen lymph node to force us into a season of rest that we didn’t realize how much we needed. I was in so much pain that I finally went to the emergency room. The only thing they could do was prescribe rest and give me steroids to open my airway that was starting to get closed off from the swelling. The Booher’s kindly took Lyda and her mom into their home, took responsibility for the… Read more: Barnard, Jesse and Tess
  • McDaniel, Richard and Julie
    ~ Teaching and preaching in the USA and abroad; Conference speaker; Literature; Instructor and director of the SFMI Training Program ~ Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Our ministry here in Bend doesn’t seem to change too much. We are faithful to serve in the church with eldership responsibilities and to take part in the teaching ministry. We also continue to do street evangelism in downtown Bend almost every weekend. It is a time of much sowing without seeing much fruit of the harvest. We pray that others will be reaping a harvest from the… Read more: McDaniel, Richard and Julie
