Dr. Mike and Mrs. Becky Patterson – MABMI President Emeritus and International Representative
Bethesda Children’s Homes – Tlapa, Mexico
Stella Mae was a remarkable lady. Married at age fourteen she was gloriously saved at age seventeen. Though her new fond faith brought joy in her heart and problems in her marriage, she stuck it out going on to have eight children. At church Stella Mae fell in love with missionaries. She first gathered pop bottles to sell for her faith promise. After raising her children she studied to become a nurse, and she could finally give liberally. At retirement, she won souls and sold her famous muffins to continue giving. Funds were recently given in her memory to finish the farmhouse Stella Mae’s ministry goes on. Now our time to lay up heavenly treasure.
Raymond McGaha was another who sacrificed for the work of missionaries. He was buried October 25 and Heaven has gained another hero. He and his wife have been our friends for 45 years. This couple has given sacrificially for all of their Christian lives.
The work continues: Building, farming, teaching planting churches and winning souls.
In His Love,
Mike and Becky Patterson
