The Suddeth Familiy Ministry Update - December 2016
Pastors' Meeting Update
November 19 was a big day for our ministry. We’d been looking forward to it for a couple of months. For the national pastors, it was a normal meeting; for our ministry it was an important opportunity to make connections with national pastors. I (Clip) was able to meet and speak with several pastors. We are now in the process of following up with each pastor individually. It’s a lot of work, but it’s important as we establish our ministry here.
The Gospel in Carrissial
In our October update, we mentioned a trip with Pastor Dolores and his wife Dominga to a village that has no gospel presence. Well, three trips later, we are beginning to see progress. December 1-4, our family went with Pastor Dolores and Dominga to Carrissial (the village). Pastor Dolores led services on the front porch of Oscar and Adelaida’s house. The first service we held (about a month ago) had 5 people; the last service (December 2) had 16 people. The people seem open to the gospel, but there is a lot of tradition and many misconceptions to overcome. (Below are a few pictures from our recent trip.)

• Our follow up with national pastors.
• The people in Carrissial to receive the gospel.
• We are still waiting to receive the final documents for our vehicle, but we are making progress.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support. Together we are partnering in the gospel, impacting the world for the Kingdom of God.
