Dear faithful co-laborers in the ministry,
We are very thankful for your faithful prayers for us as we are coming down to the end of our furlough. We have continued to be busy as we have been visiting a good number of our supporting churches, but we have also had the privilege to be in some new churches, as well. We have been able to pick up some additional support from a few of those churches.
As I mentioned in our last prayer letter, we have been in three Missions Conferences in Iowa, Louisiana, and Rhode Island, as well as being in some other churches for single meetings. We are now back in South Carolina and North Carolina for November and December.
We praise the Lord that another deaf man made a profession of faith on Saturday, September 3rd. Brother Jon Speights has begun to have Bible studies once a month in the home of a deaf couple that are church members. They live approximately two hours from the church, so that makes it a bit difficult to invite people to church that will have to take public transportation for two hours each way. This deaf couple is so excited to have these monthly Bible studies, that they will prepare a meal to serve before the Bible study. On this day, a deaf man named Luciano, put his faith in Jesus Christ after hearing a Gospel presentation. We rejoice with thanksgiving for the salvation of Luciano!
We have purchased tickets for our return to Brazil on December 30th. We were able to Skype with our church people in Brazil to tell them that we will be back in church on January 1, 2017, and they are as excited as we are about our return.
We have thoroughly enjoyed being able to report in many of our supporting churches, getting reacquainted with many of you, and making some new friends. Some of our supporting churches have already asked and received a DVD of our ministry report. If you would like to have one, please request one ASAP, to avoid having to send them from Brazil. If you prefer, you may also view it here, on our website. In the “Pages” box to the right, just click on “Ministry Report.”
It is with heartfelt thanksgiving that we praise the Lord for each one that has a part in our ministry.
Your representatives to Brazil,
Dan & Becky Bennett
