"There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms..." Deuteronomy 33: 26-27

It is a joy for us to know that this great God is our refuge and help. He has given us the joy of seeing some young people confess Christ as their Saviour. Three of them (between 15 and 17 years old) have more than two years attending Bible school at the assembly. They come from homes where nobody is a believer, and they do not attend any church. In recent months they have been very concerned about their salvation until they did not resist more and each of them separately made their decision to accept Christ in their homes, when their relatives were sleeping.

We trust in the Lord that they will bring fruit for the glory of God. There are also two aboriginal men, farm workers, who have taken this vital step in the last two months. They are very excited and with their wives attend meetings at the assembly. They walk for an hour and a half to get to meetings, sometimes in the rain.

In February this year we had the joy of using the new building of the Gospel Hall in Dolega, which our heavenly Father was pleased to see built. The project is not yet fully completed; several things still should be finished, with the Lord's help we will get them done gradually.

Once a month we go with several of the young people to some neighbourhoods to distribute texts and tracts. We have seen fruit that encourages us to keep doing it. However, the response of those living near the assembly is slow and sometimes hard.

We continue to hold meetings twice a week in Dos Rios and once a week in Chumical. We have seen there the Lord's hand saving some and others who have come near the door but have not yet entered. In David City, we maintain a weekly Bible study with three elderly sisters, in one of their homes. Two of them are in the fellowship of the assembly. Sometimes a family member attends the Bible studies. We are praying to rent a more appropriate place in this town for meetings. At present, in Boquete, we maintain a Bible study with a couple of Colombians who show interest in the word of God.
