Wil had the privilege of leading Rosio and her husband Milton to Christ in January. They are growing in their relationship with Christ. In the foto below she is sharing Christ with her studetns at school using the salvation bracelets provided by Clinton Tipps.

Abide in Christ March 2017 medical-dental-evangelism team.
This is the best medical team I have ever worked with through the years. They were focused on ministry to patients, and our goal of planting an evangelical church in the community.
With the apostle Paul we declare: "For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen" (Romans 11:36). To Him alone be all the glory through all eternity.
Thank you for the privilege and opportunity of being involved in something that will still be worth while a million years from now!
