Here we go again! FBC Mt. Pleasant is sending off another team to work with our partners, David & Regina White, in Guatemala. Our Team will be serving alongside the Whites and some national believers July 24-30. Our Team of 10 (5 HS students & 5 adults) will be working in several villages sharing the gospel and encouraging national believers.
This work is not new. In fact, we began this work alongside IMB (International Mission Board) Missionaries on September 23, 2012. We are approaching 4 years of this partnership! Though the work has been slow and difficult at times, we desire to continue to be faithful knowing that God is calling some out of the Ch’orti’ people! We see this promise fulfilled in Revelation 7:9-10:
“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!'”
Yes! Salvation belongs to our God. Therefore, God opens the eyes of the blind when He chooses, at His will by His Word! We go confidently knowing the Holy Spirit indwells us and has equipped us for every good work. My deepest longing is to see the Lord worshipped as He deserves, by all peoples for His glory and for our joy! I praise the Lord for the promise we hold to in faith- that one day we will stand with Ch’orti’ believers in perfect community with one another and with the Father.
Please pray for our team.
- Pray we would display this type of unity now- that people would know we are disciples of Jesus by our love for one another.
- Pray for our students and adults to be BOLD- trusting in the sufficiency of Christ’s work in us and through us.
- Pray for our affections for Jesus to grow this week. -And that God would call some to commit their lives to laboring in foreign fields!
- Pray for our partnership with the Whites and with our national brothers and sisters- that we’d be a blessing to them.
- And finally, pray that Jesus would be magnified throughout the mountains of Guatemala. That He would raise up believers who would be faithful disciples that would have a passion to plant churches in Guatemala and beyond.
Please lift us up to the Father by name: Josh Driscoll, Kate Lee Anderson, Tate Goodson, Ashton VanDeusen, Sean Collins, Sharon Goodson, Veronica Higgs, Hope Gay, Shelby Higgs, and Liz Eckbreth.
Below are the Whites: David, Regina, Cruz, and Ben!
Thank you for your prayers!
“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working!” -James 5:16
