This month was very busy for us, but very blessed. My daughters are finishing the school year. They are very happy because they have two months of vacation. (July, August). Bethlehem is really growing. She was with us on the beach in Puerto Lopez (Manabi province). We saw the whales one morning, it was a fantastic experience. They are a picture of the glory of our God.
- Puerto Lopez Baptist Church- Anita & I were to Puerto Lopez with a work team from KY-USA. Our friend and partner David Sills came with us. We had many ministry opportunities to serve the Lord Jesus at Puerto Lopez, including : Medical clinics; Painting, cleaning the Chapel; Bible club for kids; Ladies conferences; Personal testimonies; Conferences in various educative institutions; Radio family programs; Evangelistic services every night; and, Fellowship. Anita worked with ladies and kids; and Joselito helped with preaching, teaching many conferences, congregational music, personal counseling, and speaking every morning on the Radio. Now, we have a beautiful Biblical Baptist Church there; maybe twenty members, youth and adults. Praise the Lord.
- Candelaria Baptist Church- Joselito was invited to be a Speaker for the Family Campaign (two weekends). It was a wonderful experience to preach the Word of God. Three hundred persons attended the last service (including kids). Also, we had the Holy Communion celebration.
- University Baptist Church- Joselito preached about the message to the Church in Smyrna (Rev. 2:8-11) the last Sunday. Also we had baptisms (five new believers in Christ) and Holy Communion.
- Latin American Christian University- This month, Joselito is teaching a special intensive course about Bibliography.
Please continue praying for my boss, Art Patray and his wife. They need much emotionally and spiritual support now. Is not easy, to see a family member suffer. Please, don't forget this request.
Anita continues with her ministry to Ladies and kids in our neighborhood. Joselito continues writing his commentary on Luke’s Gospel. He also continues with his classes on the doctoral program in Theology, through the Vision International University.
- Thanksgiving for the spiritual and economic provision of our Lord Jesus
- Thanksgiving for many opportunities to serve. We are very excited for this, because it's an objective evidence of our divine calling. ¡Praise the Lord…!
