Dear Friends in Christ,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank the Lord for you and deeply appreciate your faithful prayers and financial support for us and the work in Mexico.
Susie and I are doing well and in relatively good health. Susie battles with her arthritic knees and foot, and myself with an injury to the neck and shoulder causing several protruding disks with accompanying nerve pain. Other than that, we both have had a clean bill of health from our doctors.!
The churches are now able to return to normal services, and most of the faithful have returned rather than stay home and view the services on line. PTL! There have been at least 35 saved in the churches and 8 baptisms!
Our May two-day mini-conference and graduation went well. Everything was virtual, but we also included the on-campus, in person, graduation activities. They were limited to the Bible Institute staff, teachers, and students who were each able to invite one person. Because of COVID restrictions, there was no after graduation celebration dinner, but there was a challenge to the graduates, singing, the handing out of graduate and BA diplomas as well as special recognition certificates and APEN certifications (Mexican AWANA). In all there were 20 recipients of diplomas and certificates!
Thank you for your prayers and support.
Rick and Susie
