Missionaries James and Donelle Morrell write in their August update:
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.” Titus 2:11,12
The theme of our recent winter youth camp was to live soberly or prudently. We had sixty plus youth come together to study God’s word for the week. Please pray that they would continue to study and apply the word of God to their lives.
Because our camp facility is not yet ready for camps or retreats, we are still renting other camps. About a week before youth camp was to start, it was discovered that they had double booked their camp and we would have to cancel. By the grace of God, the camp team was able to scramble and find another available facility. We are thankful that the Lord provided this ahead of time for us in His sovereignty, but this also emphasizes to us once again to complete our camp so that this does not happen in the future.
We are now making great progress on our cabins as we have finally been able to get a mason to come in to assist with all the cement work on the walls of the first cabin complex. We have also completed the roof and main structure of the second cabin complex. We praise the Lord for His provision and ask that you would pray for continued advancement as our goal is to have the first retreat in May 2017.
A team is presently being formed from a variety of individuals and churches for Sept. 15-30. If you would like to be a part of this team please contact me as soon as possible.
Thank you for your partnership in ministry as we reach the people of Argentina together!
