During the first week of February, Timothy and Sharon Fluegge arrived in San Francisco de Marcoris, Dominican Republic, to begin working with Erik and Holly Johnson. The Lord has opened the door for Al and Tami Gruber to begin a new work in the city of Puerta Plata. Our hearts rejoice to see God answering prayer. Recently, Coco Chan shared that the government of Trinidad has approved her visas for five years. This decision was a major answer to prayer. For years the struggle has been to maintain good continuity in church planting and the preparing of national leadership. Now missionaries will have an additional two years to invest in the development of a new church. Praise God! In Haiti, Don and Benji Dryden have seen an increase of 15 more students this year, and they project 28 graduates this summer from the Bible institute in Port-au-Paix. This year—2014—could be the best year ever in serving the Lord. The past is history and today we write another page in the book. With the Lord's help we can make this year one to remember through prayer and faithful service to our Savior.
