Mike and Becky Patterson and The Bethesda Homes – July 2021 Prayer Letter
Dr. Mike and Mrs. Becky Patterson – MABMI President Emeritus and International Representative
Bethesda Children’s Homes – Tlapa, Mexico
Thank you for prayers and sacrificial giving. Without you our ministry could not exist. Five buildings are now planned for the farm and we will begin building as soon as permits are granted. Pray for the entire need. We
may have to pause construction but will not go in debt.
We were in Tlapa for most of the month of June. Graduation was a special treat. Rev. Jesse Morton joining us for the week. Several high-ranking government officials attended as 23 graduated. They are amazed at the quality of education offered in our school.
The testimony of our Christian School has now reached deeply into the mountain villages. 150 are now enrolled for the fall term starting in August. Even unconverted parents want a quality education for their kids. Our graduates have opened many new villages to the gospel. Dr. McCoy’s plan is bearing fruit. The Tlapa church has grown exponentially and even with Covid it is bursting at the seams.
In His Love,
P.S. On a personal note thank you for your prayers. I have a whopper
of a scar on my head but the wound is healed. I’m still dizzy at times
but I’m maintaining a busy schedule. The debt for our replacement
vehicle is now paid in full. Thank you for your prayers and gifts that
made this possible. The future is as bright as the promises of God.
