SWAT REPORT # 58 06-20-06
Matthew 16:18 says I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
In photo #5801 is the building the Lord has graciously giving to our ministry. This is not the first time this photo has been in my reports some may recall that we asked for prayer that we might acquire this house/church in Racos village in which to house the church which the Lord has built in that community. Faithful readers of these reports will recall the many photos of children and adults that the Lord has gathered around the consistent teaching and preaching of his Word in this village over the past year and two months. Because of this He has generously supplied our ministry with this fine house in a very good location. It is totally paid for it has very nice living facilities which we will use immediately for a custodian and in the future for a pastor it will be adequate to hold between 80-100 souls for ministry and it has land in the back for building in the future. We plan to have a tent meeting on this property in the near future for the purpose of the grand opening of the church as well as an introduction of the good news to this community. Ours will be the first and only Bible believing Baptist church located here in a village numbering between 10-15,000 in population. We need only to make some minor renovations and we will hold our first service there in just a matter of a few weeks. For those who generously gave to this project we apologize for the long delay in finalizing this property but communism does not operate to the benefit of either the people or the Lord. We truly thank all who gave and prayed for this and invite you over for the grand opening. If you read the archived SWAT REPORTS on the web www.streetpreaching.com you will read quite an interesting history of The church at Racos.
We are very pleased to announce that our first semester of Bible college has come to a happy ending with all the seven who started, finishing with passing grades and a few with perfect scores. These are men in training to pastor works like Racos in the future. The second semester will begin in the early fall.
My family and I took some R&R in Spain for the last couple of weeks. I discovered that I am not a do-nothing-much kind of person. I would much rather be in the heat of the battle. But I cannot deny the benefit of coming apart before you come apart. We did hold a street meeting in Torremolinos, Spain with very old friends and veteran missionaries Steve and Debbie Cooper see photo 5805. They have been ministering in Spain for 17 years. They were able to start one work and successfully turn it over to a national and are now on their second work. We were joined on the street meeting b y two other missionaries who are just getting started in the work of the Lord. This street meeting in Spain brings the total number of countries we have ministered in to 26 for the glory of the Lord.
We monkeyed around (see photo 5802) on the Rock of Gibraltar
(see photos 5804, 5803) for other views. In
photo 5802 see if you can tell which one is the monkey.
One of the things the rock is famous for is the colony of monkeys which have
consistently inhabited the property there for ever. It
was quite a thrill to be on such a strategic geographic point
something I have heard
about all my life but have only seen on ads for Peninsular Life Insurance Co. But I am glad to announce that
