The Suddeth Family Ministry Update, August 2016
Dear Partners in the Gospel,
Graduation from language school is August 12, and we move to Panamá on August 13. Our understanding of
missionary work is that you are a part of the we. Yes, our family is physically moving to Panamá, but in a very
real since you are going with us. Through your prayer support and financial partnership, we (you and us) are a team
who will be serving the Lord in Central America.
You have been praying with us for the funds to buy a ministry vehicle in Panamá. Thanks to God’s provision through
many of you, we now have $15,350 toward a vehicle! Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the middle of August. This
vehicle will give us access to train and disciple pastors in places that are difficult to reach. If you would like to
give a special gift toward a ministry vehicle, you can visit the giving page HERE.
Our goals, and our prayer requests, for the first two months are:
• Praise the Lord - we found a house and appliances (our lease
begins August 15)!
• Buy a vehicle
• Set up our house (connect utilities, purchase furniture, etc.)
• Continue working on our Spanish and begin to learn the
• Make connections with churches and pastors in order to begin
to build relationships.
Your prayer support and financial
partnership will give us opportunities to train and
disciple pastors in villages like Piriatí.
On a recent three-day trip to Panamá, Clip was able to find a house to rent
and buy appliances (it is not uncommon for houses to come completely
unfurnished). Thanks to the help of a friend named Guillermo, we were able to find
a man (pictured) who brought the appliances to the house.
