After all our weekly services are over, Charlene and I like to sit together to talk and reflect on what the Lord did during that week. This past weekend we were strongly impressed by how balanced His blessings are on the entire mission work. Our local members are really stepping up to the plate to serve in every needed area. We keep having new converts asking to be baptized in obedience to Christ. Our traveling evangelistic teams are as excited as we’ve ever seen them as they go to some of the most difficult regions of the country. And our church has joyfully increased their giving to further the ministries. She and I have seen all of these aspects many times in our work, but we are especially impressed that they are all occurring at the same time and we know that this is God’s doing. We are thankful.
Speaking of baptisms, we rejoice to see such a wide spectrum of conversions. Last week I baptized an 11-year-old girl who was raised in a Christian home all her life. She had come to realize that she was a sinner in need of the Savior, but anyone who knew her well could hardly point out any particular sins. This coming weekend I will be baptizing an elderly lady who has been an idolater nearly all her life. She raised several children who are spiritists, but now, late in life, she has found God’s grace and has surrendered her life to Christ. God continues to work in and through her life also. One of her granddaughters is a student in my English class and she also recently came to Christ.
Our outreach team, Projeto Vida, will be leaving again tomorrow to be ministering in three different interior towns. While giving our base church their last trip’s report, we could see an excitement that usually wanes about this time of the year. The Lord has blessed them with a unity among themselves which is often tested due to their 24/7 togetherness for 3 weeks of each month. You can imagine having 12 people (even sanctified ones) together in one vehicle and staying at the same locations, eating together every day for 9 months of the year, how that could begin to cause friction. But we were thrilled to see and hear how united they are and excited about how God is using them to reach the lost with the gospel.
We thank you for your faithful prayers and support for us and our ministries.
In Christ’s love,
Bobby and Charlene Wacaser
