Dear Pastor and Church:

We praise the Lord for His blessings and protection as we have travel on this furlough.  In February, we were in churches in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.  We praise the Lord for those we have seen come to the altar to make different decisions and for the churches who are seeing their mission commitments increase.  Some time ago, one of Halbert’s and Edgar’s former teachers from Honduras contacted us and told us that she and her husband were visiting a church and saw our picture on the wall.  It was one of our supporting churches in Roswell, New Mexico.  When we arrived, the pastor told us that she had recently decided to be baptized and would I like to baptize her!  The church voted and authorized me to baptize Rocio and it was my privilege to do so.   My Dad also baptized two in the mission church in Honduras.   We have been privileged to win two to Christ on visitation in New Mexico and Texas.

Below are reports on two projects running simultaneously.   We do not usually do this, but this time it worked out like this.  Please pray about both projects.

Back in September, we shared with you our project to take a vehicle back to Honduras and to pay it off by March 1st so we could request the clear title.  We praise the Lord for the churches and individuals who have helped.  Our home church, Victory Baptist Church of Weatherford, Texas sent $2,000.00 to pay for the repairs and towing expenses.  We are praying for 60 offerings of 460.00 to cover everything.  The following have sent offerings for the vehicle account:

Cornerstone Bap Ch, Dayton, OH


Hope Bap Ch, Romulus, MI


Vandalia Bap Ch, Vandalia,  OH


1st Mexican Fundamental Bap Ch,


San Antonio, TX  
Pensacola Bap Temple, Pensacola, FL


Regency Bap Ch, Arlington, TX


Trinity Bap Ch, Big Spring, TX


Mrs. Martha Johnson, Weatherford, TX


Saguaro Hills Bap Ch, Mesa, AZ


Please pray for our upcoming Youth Camp.  It will be during Easter week, or as they call it in Latin America, Holy Week.   We ask you to pray for that the Lord will provide the funds to pay one half of each camper’s cost.  That is $58.00.  If you can help, please send your offering to the IBFI office, made out to the IBFI, and designated to Honduras Youth Camp.  You will be making an eternal investment in that teens life.  In past camps, we have had teens saved and others dedicate their lives to the Lord.   Please pray for each teen and those who will be working, teaching, and preaching.   We praise the Lord for the offerings we have received so far:

Countryside Bap Ch, Mansfield, TX


Carl Johnson, Ft Worth, TX


Deborah Franklin, Palestine, TX


Heritage Baptist Ch, Haslet, TX


Victory Baptist Ch, Weatherford, TX

Yours with Hope For Honduras,
