February 2020 Newsletter

Thank you for covering us in prayer this past month.  Our year is off to a great start.  Our calendar for 2020 is continuing to fill.  We are excited about all of the opportunities we will have this year to work alongside U.S. volunteers and help them take next steps in missions involvement.  Pray for us as we plan, schedule, and look for places to partner each one.
Our first team of the year was from First Baptist Mount Pleasant, SC.  They spent most of their week in the Chiquimula area making home visits, participating in worship services, and encouraging the believers there in our former work area.  They had a great week and we are thankful for their faithfulness to come and pour into the Guatemalan people. 
We were especially excited to learn recently that our Summer Sojourner positions have been filled.  We have been assigned two females from Georgia that will be spending six weeks of their summer working alongside us.  We look forward to getting to know them over the next few months and then hosting them here beginning in late May.  Join us in praying for Madelyn and Victoria as they prepare to come serve short term in Guatemala.
We ended the month with a work trip to Florida for a team meeting with our Connections Cluster. This group represents IMB personnel from Guatemala, Panama, Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Brazil.  It was a great time of brainstorming, planning, and sharing ideas of how we can better serve the US churches.  We have a great team and each of us are passionate and committed to seeing Southern Baptists be on mission both locally and internationally.  Pray for each of these families as we not only seek to train US partners but also national partners to be on mission and share the gospel with their neighbors.
This is the mission of IMB.  As your Southern Baptist missionaries on the field we want to see this mission carried out.  There is a place for you to serve and we want you to know that we are here to serve alongside you.  Whether that be in Guatemala or somewhere else across the globe, IMB wants to partner with you.  Let us know how we can help your church take the next steps in missions involvement or visit opportunity finder to see places where your church could serve.  Go see your Lottie Moon dollars at work!
