A NEW CALENDAR
A new year brings with it a new calendar. January always
brings new excitement as we leave the past year behind. It is
time to evaluate the past and to exercise some new plans for
the future. Our 2013 year was memorable with many victories. Last year, more
than 6,000 professions of faith were reported in the Caribbean. It was a record
year for tract distribution and portions of God's Word with over 685,000 handed
out. Yearly we are seeing that for nearly every 100 tracts given out, one person
makes a profession of faith. Everywhere we traveled this year, we have met new
believers. We have heard amazing testimonies, and we have seen what the Lord is
doing in every region of the Caribbean.
Recently, Wes and Faith-Ann Bartley were able
to start a new church in St. Lucia. Coco Chan has
been invited into three more public schools to
teach God's Word in Trinidad. Jerry and Linda
Baker have returned to Antigua to continue their
work at Caribbean Radio Lighthouse.
Beginning the new year with our missionaries is
always a wonderful
time. Dr. David
Director of BIMI, and Pastor Dennis Daniels
and his wife, Lisa, came and challenged our
missionaries at our Dominican Field Conference.
The MKs always
make our field
conferences special. We had
some wonderful times of fellowship with them.
Having known them since they were little brings
back memories of past years as they are always a
highlight of our time together.
Before leaving the Dominican Republic, we were able to visit most of our
missionaries there on the field. We also had time to visit a number of the
national works that are in the capitol. We toured the new property that the Lord
has given to Iglesia Bautista de La Verdad in San Francisco, and we viewed the
ongoing progress at the church in La Vega. The Lord is certainly shining through
many wonderful things within our region of the world.
