MISSIONARY NEWS – THE TATE FAMILY – We have been preparing for our 3rd annual youth camp in January, praying for 50 young people from the different works to join us in the mountains to hear great preaching and participate in fun activities. Each Wednesday we have the opportunity to preach the Gospel to those that serve as police in our region. This is a mandatory service for all those scheduled for duty! Last week a detective stopped me on my way to the bank to encourage me with what God was doing in his life. Please pray as we try to reach these men and women with the Gospel. We were able to finish construction of the new chapel in Los Robles. We are praising the Lord for the nearly 80 that came out to participate in the dedication service held the last weekend of November! Recently heavy rains fell in Honduras damaging a vital part of the church and institute property in Danli. We’re thankful for a few special offerings that enabled us to start the repair project, but still need about $1500 to finish repairs to the collapsed retaining wall. PRAISE GOD: for the six baptized in Danli and for the 15 passenger van that God provided for our family! PRAY FOR: The works in Danli, Ojojona, El Ocomupe, Talanga, and La Esperanza; for the adoption of the twins; and for the finances needed to finish repairs from the last major storm in Danli. Thank you for your prayers and support.
