Mission Update : Vicente & Fanny Vieira

By phone from Ambato, 180 kms. South Quito, a father crying begged "Pastor Vicente, visit urgently my daughter in the hospital. She is almost dying. You can help us because you were a good instrument of Jesus in the cemetery preaching, I was attending there, please". We went to the hospital, she was in extreme difficulty. As pastor we came to pray only for a few minutes. Her mother was desperate. We started with her and her close family. So after some visits, the mother came to Jesus surrendering to the Lord her life and receiving salvation. And a miracle, the daughter who was taking a suicidal way and didn't like any religious help, now is praying with us and accepting our comfort and message. We are sure that God Who began this good work won't stop before it is complete. Amen!

The Holy Spirit is expanding marvelously the evangelistic ministry by emails. A newspaper at Banos, Vicente's home town is publishing weekly our emails for more than 5,000 people. One ex-collegemate, journalist, published on line for many Latin American countries, one email was ours. Praising His grace in Jesus Christ!

Next Sunday Evening - September 16th
There will be an evening after church dessert fellowship to honor Joan Summerville who has so faithfully played the organ for 43 years. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hall if you plan to attend. We would appreciate cakes, pies, or any dessert that you would like to contribute.

Quote of the Week:
False prophets are to be found in the circle of the most orthodox, and they pretend to have a fervent love for souls, yet they fatally delude multitudes concerning the way of salvation. - Arthur Pink
