Happy New Year everyone! I hope the new year brings you closer to God each day. I am excited to share about the work of Christ in this part of the world. The year could not have started better for me. My two best friends from Southwest School of Bible Studies, Justin Guess and Trent Kennedy, sacrificed their time away from family and loved ones as well as money to come and encourage us with their knowledge of the Bible. The students, staff, and myself benefited greatly from both of them. They each taught 3 hrs per day (6 hours total) for two weeks on the subjects of Inspiration of the Bible, The Minister and his Family, Personal Evangelism, and 1 and 2 Timothy. What great examples they are for the local church here as well as the students of IBISR.
We also got to visit some of the newer works that started recently and encourage our brothers there. They also brought goodies for the children of Hannah's Hope. The two weeks that they spent with me and my family here have been such great memories for a missionary like myself to draw on in my times of struggles. I appreciate them and you all so much for your prayers and support.
We are expecting more visitors from abroad for the month of February and March. I look forward to seeing our brother Joe Hickey and his team that he is bringing along in early February as well as Mike Hite and Wes Autrey at the end of February until the beginning of March. The year cannot start any better for us here! Glory to God!
