Clear Direction

We begin a new assignment in 2017 of simply serving alongside the orphanage ministry of Casa Angelina, and we expect great things from God. We don't have all the details but we know where, and our vision is clear as we take the next steps.

"We are a global helps ministry called to come alongside established ministries to help them fulfill their God-given vision to reach the people God has sent them to."

That's what we did when we took on the job of completing that hospital construction project that freed up the founding missionaries, Tim and Doris Spurrier, to focus on the strategic ministry objectives God had for them, specifically -- starting a bible school.

You don't always get to see the tangible outcomes of God at work, so it's pretty exciting when things start blossoming simultaneously. Rejoice with us for what God has birthed through the missionaries we served in the Peten.

Praise Report #1:  A fully accredited bible school successfully launched in San Benito, Peten, January 2017. 

How awesome to see God bring Tim's vision to reality!

Praise Report #2:  A church plant in the village of El Limon!!!

The Spurriers worked there for so many years to establish relationships and build trust, and many of us were so blessed to have co-labored here, serving the people, helping each other, and sharing the gospel through numerous outreaches.

And now, a Kekchi pastor, filled with the spirit of God, mentored by yet another missionary, felt God leading him to move to the village and plant a church.   
--The Light of Life has come to El Limon, and His name is JESUS!

How encouraging! When you serve God and are faithful to the vision He gives you, no matter how everyday the work may seem, He connects the pieces and the people and the resources to fulfill His greater plan and bring to pass the desire of His heart that all may be saved.

Thank you for faithfully supporting us to continue...

Simply serving,

Rod and De Ishmael
