Dear Friends & Supporters,
After two years of the virus keeping most of the world closed to us, 2022 has been somewhat of a recovery year. Some of the countries we do our missionary work in have now lifted most of their restrictions making it possible for us to go into the world to do our work for the Lord. We praise the Lord this is taking place. Already we have been able to make plans to work in several countries in the coming year.
During the current year we have been in 17 churches in the United States, being able to report to those who have been so faithful in supporting us. We cannot thank you all enough for continued support, what a blessing each of you have been.
Three times Lucy and I were also able to teach in Bible Colleges which we enjoyed so much. And we were able to go on 7 mission trips outside the continental United States. This year in the churches we preached in, we saw 233 respond to receive the Lord Jesus as their Saviour and hundreds came forward for prayer.
We saw the Lord work in an unusual way on our trip to Mexico this year. The week we were in Mexico, special outdoor rallies were held in parks, plazas, and in social gathering places throughout Monterrey, a city of some 6 million people. Thirty teams of workers went to some 30 locations holding these rallies. I had the joy of preaching in 5 of the rallies. Most of the people who came to the rallies were unsaved which gave us the opportunity to preach the gospel to them. The team of workers did a wonderful job for the Lord.
We praise the Lord we had the opportunity to be a part of this ministry. We know that many people made professions of faith and a good number have already been baptized. Even now discipleship classes are being conducted.
You gave, we went, and the Lord blessed with a wonderful harvest!
In His Service,
Preacher and Lucy Smith
