Don & Vivian Bond (1952)
“If Christ is nor risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.” We participated in the funeral service of Edna Hull this week. She was our Senior Missionary as we moved into her house on the Amazon in 1958. She worked with us as a Church Planting Assistant for several years in two fields. She is now rejoicing in her rewards with Christ.
Another blessing this month was the visit of Jose Cardenas from Ica, Peru. He grew up in our work in Nazca, graduated as a lawyer then was called to Christian service. He graduated from the three year course at Word of Life Institute in Argentina and worked with BBN, a Christian radio network, in several Latin countries. He is now the pastor of a prospering church that Andy and Di Large established in Ica, Peru and a traveling Evangelist. It was a special blessing to Viv as she was able to share God’s enabling (“My grace is sufficient for thee”) with Jose’s girlfriend.
A special prayer request: Don will be operated on for facial Basal Cell Carcinoma and a hand deformation on Tuesday August 6. Also, Don is bringing the Devotional at Morning Chapel August 5th. We are grateful for your support in gifts and prayer. May God be pleased to continue using us for His Glory!
We are looking forward to visits from our two daughters, Steve and Debi Douglas and Andy and Di Large, this week on their way back to Peru and Nicaragua. Please pray for their ministries.
Don and Viv
