Wes has begun teaching at CILTA, a program for training native Spanish-speaking missionary candidates for cross-cultural ministry. Pray for good chemistry among students and professors, and that students would embrace their studies.
Our friend Byron in Guatemala planned a Literacy Olympics, which was very successful in the community in providing a high profile for reading Mam in general and reading Scripture in particular. Pray that this increases the number of Mam literates, and that the Scriptures would be a daily choice as far as reading Mam goes.
Dear and good friends,
Greetings to you from springy North Carolina. Nancy and I have been busy since we last touched base with you. Our biggest news is that our bundle of grandchildren has grown to six with the birth of Jolene Joy Collins to Isaac and Elizabeth. She was born on April 21 and weighed in at 8 pounds even and 20 1/2 inches long. Among the details is that she sports her Grandpa Collins’ hair. Elizabeth and JoJo are both fine.
Our other big event was a trip that Nancy and I took back to Guatemala, and to the village where we worked, and where the kids grew up.
Here are a few prayer requests for us:
1. Our youngest child (and only son), Isaac, and his wife Elizabeth gave birth to Jolene Joy on April 21. Please pray for “JoJo,” their first child, and that health and joy would abound. They are also in the middle of selling their home and moving to a new one. Missionary kids like to stay busy.
2. Wes is headed back to Peru on May 25 to help train Latino missionary candidates in skills related to Bible translation and linguistics. This block of classes will last two months.Pray for Wes and the students as they all learn new things.
