What a summer it has been so far. We are looking forwad to all that the Lord has in sotroe for us, even though we do not know what it is. We want to thank all of you for your continued prayers and financial support. Each day we are getting closer to Paraguay and knowing you are part of our team encourages our hearts. We pray the Lord’s richest blessings on you.
This month we were able to share in three Churches and are praising the Lord for each opportunity He gives. As far as support goes we are still hanging out at 60% (3229.00). The Lord has been good and has brought us a long way from when we started. When I look back two and a half years ago, the Lord has brought us very far. He has brought us from 19% (1018.00) to 60%. What an AMAZING GOD we
serve! Right now we need you, our prayer partners, to please continue to pray with us for the 10% (520.00) that we have left to leave for the field and also our start-up costs. We know that our God can and will provide in His time and we lood forward to seeing how quickly He brings it in. We would also ask that you would pray the Lord would prepare our hearts for Paraguay. Would you also prayerfully consider if the Lord would have you become par of our fianacial support team? We would love for you to join us and help us reach Paraguay for Christ.
We finished our time in Michigan on the 10th. We had a wonderful time; spending time as a family, seeing family, attending Tanja’s brother’s Wedding, and celebrating with Munising Baptist School’s (where Tanja went to school) 30 year Anniversary. We were also able to celebrate the 4th, we watched the parade, had a cook out, went to the firemans’s water fight (Malachi and Noah got soaked) and enjoyed some incredible fireworks.
NEWS FROM PARAGUAY ~ Teaching Angaites Where They Stand
Missionaries Wes Goddard and his cousin Mark recently helped teach a group of new Angaite believers. Getting there required a 12 hour trip onan everloaded boat with standing room only. They praised the Lord for a sofe journey. Mark and Wes assisted an Angaite Bible Teacher as ahe taught a group of new believers from Firm Foundation Bible lessons. “We ttaught two hours in the morning, and two hours in the afternoon during 3 days. We did a lot of teaching about our position in Christ, as believers, and how we have an excellent standing before God, because Jesus Chrsit.” Mark’s wife Odie accompanied them and spent much ffo her time talking with Angaite women. After three days of teaching and encouraging the three had a n 8-hour trip downriver. This time it was extremely cold on the deck of the boat as temperatures dropped to near freezing in the Paraguayan winter. Praise God that the Angaite new believers are more grounded and have a better understanding of God’s Word. Pray that Wes will continue to be used in teaching and establishing tribal believers. Pray too for Mark and odie Goddard as they minister among the Angaite and Pai Tavy Tera peoples. ~ Dena McMaster
