Dear Friends & Supporters,
What a blessing it is to serve the Lord! Lucy and I have had a rich life in the Lord’s work. She, serving in Argentina for 54 years and I pastored for 36 years; and now have done world mission work over 30 years. We have now served the Lord together these past three and a half years after our first mates were taken to Heaven. We just returned from a missionary journey in Costs Rica. We have had the joy to serve along with the Barnes’ for a great many years. What a blessing and honor for us.
Our report today is about what the Lord did in Costa Rica while we were there. It was great to watch the Lord work as we were tools in His hand. I was able to teach in the Bible Baptist Institute a course on, “The Steps of a Good Man”. During four mornings I taught a class of 150 students and 100 attended by Zooming.
The ministry included preaching in four churches. In two of the church’s we held a four night Conference on the “Home and Family”. Then in another church I held a conference on Prophecy. In all of the churches a total of some 589 persons came forward. I preached 29 times. Each night families came to the altar together bringing their homes before the Lord. A total of 51 persons responded to the invitation for salvation. Lucy was also able to give her testimony in one of the larger churches.
We are now preparing to travel to Mexico to serve there. We praise God for the privilege to see Him do His great work and are so thankful for each of you for your faithful support to make our mission work possible. Thank you so much.
In His Service,
Preacher and Lucy Smith
