Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Time goes by so fast that it is hard to believe that December is just about here. We are so excited about what God is doing here in our ministry. We have been praying for the members of the church I pastor to get more involved. Most of them were just church attenders. No one really ever got involved in any of the activities. But praise God in the last months more and more of them have made great changes. It has been great to see them change, and even ask to help and do things!

We are now working in 6 different locations! One is the mother church and 5 missions. Doors have opened faster than we could imagine. God has worked in marvelous ways. This month we had a special program in the village of Ariau (pictured here). We were given permission to use the city’s gymnasium. We had music, devotion, games and hot dogs. We had 350 people there! It was fantastic. As a result of that, we had 5 youth that came to the youth meeting at our church the next Saturday. That same week, a man from the village a Limao (lemon) who has a mission asked for help. He said they have 30 that come but have no support from any church. So we will be checking that out this week.

The missions in UBIM, MULTIRAO and IRANDUBA are doing well. Please continue to pray for each of these places, that souls will be saved, and people from these places will grow and reach others.

Kathy is still in the States getting our son Tito settled in and documents done. But they are doing well and Kathy has been able to see our other children.

We want to thank all of you that give and pray for our ministry so faithfully. May God richly bless each one of you.

In Christ,
Odali and Kathy
