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 was wonderful!!!! 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 11
