Dear Friends, Proverbs 3:5-6 SEPTEMBER 2010
Greetings from the Recalde family.
We Praise the Lord for each one of you and the help and blessing that you are to us! We want to thank you very much for Praying for us and for helping us financially each month! Thank you for being our co-workers!
Because of Samuel’s green card status, we need to stay another year here in the U.S.A. to establish residency before returning to our ministry in Paraguay. We are getting settled We are excited and looking forward to a great year of serving The Lord here at the NTM HOMES before returning to Paraguay. Please Pray for us, for wisdom, strength and stamina in our new responsibilities.
Samuel will be on the maintenance and construction crew and Tracy will be helping with housekeeping, receptionist and is also taking some medical classes such as, CPR, AED and Adult First Aid etc. in order to be able to help more with caring for our residents here. As staff at New Tribes Mission Homes, we will be “missionaries serving missionaries.” Many of you know that Samuel’s parents were saved years ago through the ministry of Duane & Mary Stous and Les & Loraine Pederson in Paraguay. Both couples are retired here at the Homes, so that is very special for us.
Following is from the letter that was sent out about us by the NTM Homes Administrator: (if you would like to read the full letter, we will be happy to send you a copy)
“The leadership team at NTM Homes has invited Samuel and Tracy Recalde to join our full-time staff. NTM Homes is the retirement community for missionaries who have served with New Tribes Mission. We have a population of 147 retired missionaries.
The cost is low in order to accommodate these missionaries. This is possible because all of the NTM Homes staff is not paid salaries, but serve as other New Tribes missionaries with the help of God’s people, as they give to the Lord.
Samuel will be a part of the grounds and general maintenance staff team. Tracy will assist in housekeeping, receptionist and kitchen duties. They will be accountable to the NTM Homes leadership team.
I am sure the Recaldes would covet your prayer support, and if possible, continued financial support for their New Tribes Mission ministry at NTM Homes. Churches like yours play a vital part in God’s provision for His servants at NTM Homes. We want to thank you for this. It is a privilege to have a part in the ministry of NTM as we partner together in “Reaching the Unreached.”
Because of Him Who loved us first,” Dan Thomas – NTM Homes Administrator
Here at the NTM HOMES, Each street is named for one of the countries where New Tribes works. Kristina found the Paraguay one 🙂Please Pray especially for our kids, Kristina and Nathan as they adjust to a new home, new school and make new friends. It is not always easy.
Please continue to Pray for the Pãi Tavytera Tribe, that many more will come to know the Lord and that God would burden hearts for the unreached Indigenous People of Paraguay! Please Pray for our Tribal Brother and Sisters back in Paraguay as they continue having Church and Bible classes in our absence. Please Pray that they will stand strong and not give in to Satan’s temptations even when they are often persecuted for their Faith. Please Pray especially for Justino, Edgar and Hugo as they lead the men’s Bible studies and Sunday morning Church services. Pray for Mamila, as she continues to teach the ladies Bible class on Saturdays and Loli, as she teaches the children’s Sunday school class.
Thank you again for your help and Prayers! Thank you for being our co-workers!
GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!
In Christ’s Service,
Samuel, Tracy and Family
