Jerry and Liz Harmon (Puerto Rico) Since our
move to the east side of Puerto Rico, we
have seen three saved and two receive
assurance of eternal security. It is
wonderful to see the look on their faces
when they make decisions for Christ.
We also oversaw a wonderful VBS.
Liz did most of the work: writing the
lessons, putting the visuals together,
making the verse tokens, planning the
puppet skits, and teaching the lessons.
God blessed and she had a great time
doing it. I am leading the choir and
singing, teaching the adult SS class,
preaching and counseling. Liz leads the
children's church program. We are both
active in soulwinning.
Tim and Sharon Fluegges (Dominican
Republic) The last two months have been
eventful. We spent the first of June
preparing for our Youth Conference,
which went from June 25–27. We
had a teen group from Temple Baptist
Church in Herndon, Virginia, who
helped us throughout the week. We
had over a dozen visitors from the
community during the week and four
of those have continued coming to
church on the bus. I was also able to
lead my first Dominican to Christ! It
Don and Bridgitt Dryden (Haiti) This
year we were honored to have Dr.
Ray Thompson, the Executive Vice-
President Emeritus of BIMI, to preach
our graduation service. Dr. Thompson
has 55 years of ministry in missions
and was such a blessing to us and our
church. During the graduation of 29
students, a national pastor (Brother
Octave) who is a graduate of Blue
Water Bible College (founded by Dr.
Thompson) stood and shared with us
what Dr. Thompson meant to him.
Standing with Pastor Octave was his
son Wefley who is a teacher with us in
our Bible school.
Michael and Anna Doering (Dominican
Republic) Our youth leader, Noel
Maleno, took a large group of teenagers
to an activity called Reto Juvenil, or
Youth Challenge. We were invited to
participate with a sister church. There
were over 400 youth who attended.
There was a time of fellowship that
included some pretty crazy games and
food of course. The best news was that
three of our teens accepted Jesus Christ
that evening. We are so excited about
what God is doing among our youth.
Jeff and Traci Garrison (Dominican Republic)
We now have a very good problem on
our hands. The Haitian ministry has
grown so fast that it is necessary to
locate them in their own building. We
currently share the building with the
Dominican church and the constant use
of the facilities has caused some discord
between the two churches. We are
looking for property and we believe that
we will be able to purchase something.
Pray for this need.
Coco Chan (Trinidad) June 15 was a sad
but yet exiting day at Amazing Grace
Baptist Church. After serving at this
church for three years, I was sad to say
goodbye to the children and people
whom I love. I thank God for the
privilege to share with them the Word
of God, and I know I will miss them.
At the same time I am so excited to
see Cassil and Asher taking the new
step in their lives and becoming the
leaders of the children's department.
God has blessed this ministry by raising
up these two siblings to keep His work
going. Pray for them. Temptations are
great and they need God's strength to
serve. Islander – November 2014
