Dear brothers and sisters,
This news letter has been over due for two weeks. But now, thank God, it is being sent out. I apologize for sending one too many pictures. I usually send three. But I had over 900 pictures to choose from. Imagine!
As I was preparing to write, many old friends were going thru my mind. One of them is even home already. That one is Arlie Mathena of Portage, Indiana. Some of those friends I have not seen or heard in a while. Let me name a few: Less and Becky Robinson, John and Helen Meyer, Nathan and Kelly Hart, Bob Carney, Jean Parker, Caleb and Melanie Plumb, Betty Yerion, Troy Titus, Gardner and Angel Sorrell. While thinking about those people I overheared my friend Caleb tell me, like he did four years ago, I pray for you every Monday. I have others who pray for me everyday. That explains it.Whether you pray every day, or one day a week, or at a specific time of the day, your prayer is the key to our growth in spite of all the efforts of the enemy and in spite of us. Two weeks ago 13 people from our church here accepted Christ in baptism. A couple days later 6 accepted Christ in the water of baptism at White Mountain. Just last week, the one year old church put on a three-day evangelistic campaign in Marmelade. As a result 15 people came to the Lord. Jude’s (the builder) Sunday school class had a half a day campaign and 4 came to Christ. The evangelistic team at our church counts 23 new members of the kingdom through their direct door-to-door evangelistic campaign. As those churches, Sunday school classes, and evangelism ministry teams continue to win new souls to Christ the challenge is to “make them disciples of Christ.” You have your part: Pray for them! Three years ago a team from the church in Kenai, Alaska came and worked on shelves and tables of the library. A few months later we launched the library, but still with very few books. We need books in the French language. Funds here have been pulled in so many directions when there is no string attached to them. It still looks like an empty library. We are making progress, but it is a very slow progress.
Another team from the church was here and left two weeks ago. As usual they have done a commendable job. They took the children’s church, built its trusses and did the best ever job on truss building here. Not only that, they sent money to put the metal roof on, and the roof is completed now. In the next news letter I will send photos of the completed roof. Yes, we are making progress in spite of the efforts of the enemy. We give praise to Our Powerful God for that. We thank you for your generosity and your much needed prayers.May God bless you and may He shower His blessings on you. Please accept our greetings in His name!
Salonique Adolphe and team
