grow in the Lord since most of them claim to have already
trusted Christ as Savior.
A new adult convert! Brother Jeffrey Bruce invited a
longtime friend of his named Glynne Ince to church. Glynne
came to church on a Sunday morning and then again that
same evening and then again for the Wednesday services. We
have been teaching the people how to lead a soul to Christ on
Wednesday. We would break up into small groups and we would
work on a portion of the plan of salvation each week. Well,
when Glynne came that Wednesday, I took him for my partner.
I simply gave him the plan of salvation and as we got to the end,
Glynne bowed his head and very humbly trusted Christ. Then
he raised his head and turned to the others that night and said,
“Hey folks, I just received eternal life.” It was a time of joy and
praise to the Lord! That was a number of weeks ago, and Glynne
is still faithful to the Lord and to church.
Robert and Rhoda Smith (Barbados)
F I celebrated a very important milestone
on June 9. I taught Sunday school entirely in
Spanish! I was long-winded and the message
lasted all of 14 minutes! Nonetheless, it was a
thrill to get that first experience under my belt.
In addition to my regular classes, I tutor twice
a week and we are already preparing more
messages for future opportunities. Pray that we
will learn the language well so that we can preach
the Gospel with great plainness of speech.

F In the Dominican Republic, Pastor
Merido Corcino of the Central Baptist Church
in Constanza is working with national pastors
to build a new church in Paso Bajito. This is
up in the mountains near Jarabacoa. They have
the floor, walls, and rafters for the roof in place.
They lack the tin for the roof, windows, and
doors to finish the building. Pray for this need.
Two hundred doctrines books have
been packaged and shipped to Texas for use in
Mexico by pastors and church leaders there. It is a great blessing
to know that Dr. Mark Cambron, Spanish Literature Ministry,
and others are teaching these great biblical truths all over the
world through the use of the printed page. The Mysteries of
the New Covenant book is being printed right now and soon
