“Praise God for His provision!” reports Nenita del Mundo, leader of Student Missionary Outreach. “The Student Centre after the repair has no more leaks now—even if it rains hard. Another major repair was made on the water pipes at the SMO Promised Land in Murcia, Negros Occidental—where the Bible school is located. During a recent typhoon, many of our water pipes had been broken and we had no water for almost a month. Even the main source where we get our water supply suffered from broken pipelines. Thank God once again for providing for our need. Our workers, students and staff did a great job to trace where the broken pipes were and to replace them and bury them again underneath the ground. Praise God that the water supply was restored and sufficient enough for all the need. God is good!”
“The Churches continue to be closed in the whole country,” reports Churches of the Open Bible in Cuba. “The situation is very tense, and complicated. It is very frustrating. We know that in other countries the Internet is a great tool to reach out to the believers and non-believers; but not in Cuba. Even though we have Internet services, it is very expensive, and not available to the majority in most of the country. I record short messages of five to 10 minutes, I send them to leaders who have Internet access, and they transfer them to USB ports, and pass them over to members of their congregations, but this is a very challenging situation.” Pray for the Lord to provide for all the needs of COB’s churches, and pray that they will be able to worship openly soon.

“A team from Florida was planning to build a house for a very poor family in our village,” report Patrick and Barb Lataillade, leaders of Living Word Ministries. “Because of several issues, one issue being COVID, they had cancelled the trip. Our local men were encouraged to build a metal house instead of waiting on a team to come build it. They did a wonderful job, and we are so proud of them. The house was for a family of seven children. The family was living in a very small mud house that was not safe to live in anymore. The family is overjoyed! Our local men are now making church benches. This was also a project that a mission team had planned to do. Again, they could not travel, so they sent the blueprints to Patrick and they are now working on this project.” Praise God for these creative solutions!
