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.

Here Am I. Send Me to Mexico, City

The SOSAS going to Mexico | Raising funds

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.

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.

The New Normal in Ukraine

Hanging the sign for the schoolNormal is nice. There is a sense of security, stability and safety when things around us are normal. And the 14th annual graduation ceremony at the Ukrainian Bible Institute was a significant step in returning to normal for the students and staff.

Jeff Smith, Tim Burow and Bob Jackson traveled in early August to Kenya to distribute another 200 solar players at a seminar in Nairobi. That brings the total solar players delivered this year to 1,200. We appreciate those of you who have already provided for these solar players to spread the light of God's Word throughout Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia and South Sudan.
