ROW’s mission around the world is growing! Every new mission opportunity is a blessing and a result of your continued prayer, equipping, and support. That is especially true for the Mathes Pastor Training School. We have three expansion opportunities just around the corner. You have invested in this incredible ministry and your investment is having a great return!
In September we will open a second section of the pastors’ training school in La Romana. The two initial sessions of the school were held in Hope Mission. In September that section will continue but we will add another another to it. Please pray for the pastors that will be coming to the school. Please pray for the teaching team.
In November our mission volunteers will be in Barahona, Dominican Republic. This is the site of our original school and it has always met in two sections. Some of these pastors were our first graduates this past March. In November we will open a third section of the school in Barahona. This means we have an even greater need for teachers! Please pray for volunteers and pray for our writing team. Various pastors help me with course content and construction. In all cases, I edit the material and schedule the teaching. Your investment in this ministry has made that possible and it’s having a positive result.
As I write we are working on the final details for opening a new school in Honduras. What remains is settling on a date (December or January) and a teaching team. Again, mission volunteers are needed so please continue to pray about that.
Every school has expenses like printing, shipping, meals for the pastors, translators, and transportation costs. Every mission needs resources. If we are blessed with more opportunities, that means the need for mission support is greater. Please pray for increased support to meet these growing needs and opportunities.
And before I go, let me again thank you for all you have done and what you continue to do. God is using all of us to accomplish some awesome things for His Kingdom!
