Stover Family Prayer Letter July/August 2018

Posted by

I pray this letter finds each of you well and rejoicing in the goodness of God.  Recently I have been meditating on I Samuel 15:22b which says, “Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.” God is always advancing, and we must be obedient to Him in order to continue with Him on the journey He has for us.  May the Lord help us to be found faithful!

Church Attendance

It is wonderful to see the Lord building His church.  Over the past several months we have seen a marked increase in attendance.  The bus routes  have been bringing more and more children and teens.  Thank you to those who prayed and gave toward the purchase of the two church busses!  We have had new people coming from Venezuela, Chile, and Colombia.  Praise the Lord for His hand of blessing!  Please pray that we would be used of God to be a blessing to all that He brings us in contact with.

Salvation Decisions

In several of our recent prayer letters we have asked for prayer for the health needs of Michelle, and for prayer for her family to be saved.  Her mom, Rosa, suffered a bad fall and had to have an operation to repair her broken leg.  Praise the Lord that during her time in the hospital she prayed to accept Christ as Savior!  She is now using her time still bedridden to study the Bible and has begun to be discipled.  Please continue to pray for her recuperation and for her husband, Alfonso, to be saved as well. In addition, 9 young people made professions of faith in the youth meetings last week. Please pray as we follow up and continue to work with these precious young people!

Other Blessings 

The young lady who accepted Christ during the special meetings at church in January has been receiving discipleship and recently made the important decision to follow Christ in believer’s baptism.  The Lord has also  allowed our church to start a Thursday evening Bible study in the home of one of our families.  Please pray that many would be reached with the Gospel through this outreach.

We have enjoyed having family visit around the time of Melody’s birth (Sara’s mom and my mom and brother David).

We made a trip to the embassy in Lima in July and were able to get all our paperwork taken care of and do some fun family activities.

Please pray for our Family Conference coming up in September.

Thank you so much for your support and faithful prayers for our ministry. We could not do what we do without your help.

Yours Sincerely for Souls,

Robert & Sara Stover and Family
