Bible Translations: The Lord continues to bless the Mongolian translation team as they work on the Old Testament. At present, over 75% of the initial translation work has been completed.

Several of our students are working on their own Bible translation projects in Panama, Mexico, Ghana, and India!

Bethesda Children’s Homes: During the last year, we have undertaken fifty major projects at the home, of which thirty-six are now complete. We Have 134 children, and we have added 4 more to our staff.

Training News: During our MIT (Missionary-in-Training program), the Lord allowed us to take 11 youth and 6 adults. Twenty souls made professions of faith in Christ, and several teens led their first soul to Christ. It was wonderful!

Year-end Statistics: The Lord allowed me to teach or preach 485 times, minister in 8 countries, see over 300 saved, and be a part of training just over 300 students. Ten new missionary families have joined Mount Abarim in seven different countries!

Thank you for praying for us!
