December brought us together at the Home Office for the winter Candidate School and Board of Trustees Meeting. There were 15 more missionaries added to the BIMI family. Our hearts were thrilled to hear the testimonies of each of the candidates. The Lord continues to call wonderful servants to carry His Gospel around the world. Joy and I just returned from Antigua and Puerto Rico. We enjoyed a few days with Jerry and Linda Baker and Nathan and Renee Owens. It was a blessing to see and hear how the Lord is using them at Caribbean Radio Lighthouse. We scheduled our flights through Puerto Rico so we could see Jerry and Liz Harmon, Steve and Ann Buchanan and Jim and Kelly Shelton. I preached at Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida where Roldofo Garcia was pastor. Many of our Puerto Rican friends came and our hearts were reunited. We finished our stay by preaching the Missions Conference at Maranatha Baptist Church. Brother Shelton had prepared the Coco Chan church well and we had a great attendance. When the Faith Promise cards were counted, the church stepped out by faith to increase their giving by 250%! We are still rejoicing over what God is doing there. Nathan & Renee Owens Three days after returning home, I boarded another plane for Trinidad. Dr. John Williamson joined me for the special time of dedicating the property and building that Amazing Grace Baptist Church was able to secure this past year. The members rallied to the cause, and many visitors came to the service. During our stay we saw 16 persons come to Christ. Our hearts were thrilled to see that over half of these were adults. We had a wonderful time with David and Terri Long, Coco Chan and John and Brenda Gossett. Several national pastors opened their pulpits to us, and our schedule was packed full. We praise the Lord for each of you who make up the BIMI family. Joy and I are praying for you. It is our wish that you will have a blessed year ahead. Let us remind ourselves that knowing the time, our salvation is nearer than when we believed. Keep looking up. This may be the year that our Savior will appear in person! Let us be faithful in serving Him and introducing others to Him. Islander – No 1, 2013 3
