The Suddeth Family Ministry Update - October 2016
Sitting across from me at the breakfast table at a little "fonda" named Mama Fefa, Dolores pointed to our car and said to his friend sitting next to him, "If we had a car like that, one that sat up high and had 4x4, we could go to the village where they want us to come share the gospel."
Assuming it was Dolores' way of asking me, I said to Dolores, "I'd be glad to take you." He seemed thankful, and it led to a conversation in which we made our plans to go.
I returned the following week making the 4.5 hour trip to the interior. I was able to take Pastor Dolores and his wife, Dominga, to a village which has no gospel presence, and four different families were able to hear the gospel. (It was obvious that it was the first time these families had ever heard a clear presentation of the gospel.)
While no one made a decision to trust Christ as Lord and Savior that day, we have an open invitation to return and share the gospel in the village any time we want.
This story is what our ministry is all about - helping national pastors, so that they can reach and disciple people with a multiplying effect. We are so encouraged to have had this specific opportunity early in our ministry.
• Our continued language and cultural learning
• Spiritual health and strength for our family
• The spiritual growth, training, and encouragement of the national pastors
• That we will receive the final documents for our vehicle in the Lord's timing
