We recently exhausted our supply of literature (Gospels of John, tracts, and Bible study courses). Thankfully, our sponsoring Sunday School class in Tennessee gave us a gift of $500 for more literature! We were able to order more gospels and tracts for our next big evangelism effort.
We initiate classes in two different Bible Institutes this week. We will be teaching Hermeneutics (Interpretation of the Bible) in the churches of Sarchi and Aguas Zarcas. Those who attend these classes will include pastors, teachers, and workers from several churches. Because of distance and lack of transportation, many of these servants of God cannot go to a distant city and attend a Bible college. So we will take it to them!
Please include in your prayers a special trip that we are planning in the next few weeks. There is a desperate need for missionary-pastors to go and teach the pastors of the indigenous tribes in the jungles of Panama. These dedicated men will walk two or three days from their villages to a central location to receive Biblical instruction. We are excited about expanding our ministry to further develop these men in the truth and church leadership!
Our hearts are ever challenged to go to the “regions beyond.” Yes, God calls some of us to city ministries and the development of large churches, schools, and other organizations. But He also calls some of us to those out-of-the-way places, where few have gone. This is where my heart finds satisfaction! Jesus Christ died to save people from every tribe, language, and nation! Thankfully, you are making it possible for us to be in Latin America through your prayers and financial support. I pray that God may supply your needs so that you can supply ours! Keep praying for the harvest!
Working together for Christ,
Russ and Lynn Turner
