Endeavoring to obey the Word of our Lord...Go ye into all the lands and preach the Gospel to every creature.
From South Africa:
TILL THE STORM PASSES OVER Last
night we held services in this church in Ikageng in Northwest Province.
Storm clouds were gathering as we entered. I was speaking from
Revelations 7 as the storm broke over this little shack in full fury...
Jonas was translating. The
wind shrieked, thunder crashed, lightening flashed continually and rain
plummeted down. We spoke louder and louder. Finally the din was so great
and the metal sheets that held the shack together were banging so
threatenly that I could only shout, "In heaven above there will be not
more storms, fear, pain or sorrow when our robes are washed white by faith in the blood of the Lamb!!" Then
I quickly said a prayer and the benediction and we all scurried for
home. Next to where we were staying three shacks collapsed in the storm
and Leona and Jonas went to help the people try to save some of their
possessions in the deluge. "Keep me safe..." Dennis Hilman (picture by

Word from the Field:
(The below is part of the monthly Pastors Report from Guatemala)
The Lord gave us the opportunity to complete all the things we had in our program for this month.
We had all our services on Sundays and Wednesdays. We thank God because our attendance remains in both services.
Thank God also because we see also how the attendance in Juan Ponce remains.
We have now two new houses open for home services on Tuesdays. Praise
God for it. This new people are able to receive us in their house to
preach the Gospel.
About home visits:
I made home visits in Zacapa and Juan Ponce this month. It is always a
blessing to visit our brothers and sisters at their place and to share
time with them knowing better each other.
