Phase III Continues

Since the last update, deliveries of solar players to the Spanish speaking world have continued. Chris Swinford led a group to Nicaragua and distributed players with the help of our partner schools in that country. Tim Burow and Arthur Puente took players to Ecuador and worked with Josh Marcum and the Quito School of Biblical Studies to distribute the players among the preachers there.

So far in Phase III there have been over 300 players distributed in Cuba, Honduras, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador.

Sunset Says Farewell to Truman Scott

Our dear brother, Truman Scott, has gone home to be with his beloved Father, Brother, and Comforter. 

Truman and Ferne Scott

In his early days of ministry, his heart led him to Italy to do mission work.  He knew the Padens and others in the post-war missionary work in Italy.  From there he moved to California to preach to and shepherd the Lord’s people.  Many will remember him in those settings.

Phase III Taking Shape

Truitt and Arthur handing out in CubaAfter a year of intensive work, forty-four Biblical courses in Spanish have been formatted and organized along with an audio menu. The Spanish version Solar Player now contains over 500 hours of Bible study material along with the complete Bible. The players are now ready to be delivered. Our many brotherhood partners are eager to put the Sunset solar players in the hands of leaders that will use the material and training to multiply their efforts across the Spanish-speaking world. With the help of God and a brotherhood of Christians committed to spreading the Kingdom, Phase III will make an impact on Latin America that will be see results for generations.

Phase III Beginning Stages

As we announced in the last update, Phase III is taking the solar-powered audio players into Spanish-speaking Latin America. Many lessons have been learned from Phase II where the material was translated into Amharic for Ethiopia. Sunset has been working over the past several months to finish the courses in Spanish so that there will be a complete set of classes ready to go.

Phase II Complete

With a final trip in December 2015 to Ethiopia to deliver and distribute the solar-powered audio players in Amharic, Phase II of the Solar Event was completed. This special occasion concludes the year-long efforts by Sunset and our ministry partners around the world that have given and prayed to make this possible. Our prayers now continue that God will take our efforts and multiply their effect for the glory of His kingdom.

Phase II - Thank You

THE GOAL OF 2,000 SOLAR PLAYERS REACHED AND FINAL STAGES OF DISTRIBUTION DRAW NEAR

Baptism in Kenya

For the second year, you have responded to this incredible opportunity to help the Kingdom of God grow. With just under three months left in the year, you helped us reach the goal of funding 2,000 solar-powered audio players to be delivered to Ethiopia, South Sudan, Kenya and Nigeria. Three-quarters of the solar players have already been delivered and are in use. The rest will be delivered in two remaining trips, including the delivery of the solar players to Ethiopia with the Sunset materials and the Bible in Amharic.  We will report on this milestone around the first of the year.

Who are we?
We are Mexican citizens and have been married four years. Before we moved to Lubbock Texas, both of us were working in our respective professions: Abi worked as an Assistant of Research in Public Health for the Mexican Federal Government and I worked as a Business Intelligence Consultant at Axa Insurances. Both of us were born and raised in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Abi grew up in a Christian family and I was converted to the gospel of Christ five years ago. We met each other when we were pursuing our bachelors  degree in the University of Yucatan. Our love for the  Lord, our eagerness to study His word and our desire to  serve brought us to Lubbock to study for the Bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies at SIBI.

Baptism in the Indian Ocean in Western Kenya

This last trip to Kenya where over 350 solar players were distributed brings the total number of players sent in 2015 to Nigeria, Kenya, and South Sudan to 1,500.  Tim Burow, Bob Jackson, and Jeff Smith delivered the players in Nairobi and in Eastern Kenya. They were able to witness what God is doing in that country and celebrated 32 baptisms in the brief time they were there. Two final trips will take the remainder of the solar players including those to Ethiopia in the Amharic language.
