Hi everyone, this is Dennis and I wanted to give a quick update for those who don’t know. We are not having a class of 2017 for our Dayspring Missionary Training program this year. We only had one American student and two Mexican students and we thought that they would have a better missionary training experience if they waited until 2018, which they are all willing to do. We do have several students interested for the class of 2018 and we are planning to go forward with the DMT program next January. All of our other ministry areas are doing great and those of us that are usually staffing the DMT program will be working in some of our missions down in the tropics in the states of Veracruz, Hidalgo & Oaxaca. Our summer is looking to be full and we will all head back to Doctor Arroyo in May to staff the many mission teams that are coming throughout the summer. We have a new church in the state of Baja California and a couple more churches starting in the state of Sonora. These are new states for us and they are pretty far away from the rest of our ministry areas. We will try to get over there this year and visit them and set up some outreach in those places for our DMT class of 2018.

     Right now Laurita, Nelly, Areli, Javier, Elda, our kids & I (we were the DMT staff last year, remember?) are in the state of Oaxaca working with the Mazateco Indians on Old Soyaltepec Island. Areli’s father Pastor Pascual is one of our Pastors down here and he has been working with the Chinanteco Indians for many years. We are working with him to build up the church on the island. I will be posting here when I can throughout this year. I will also be posting pictures when I can on our Facebook pages at outreach ministries; missionary training; soyaltepec dayspring mission; outreach in dr arroyo.

Thanks for following us and I’ll be back when I can (we don’t have internet on the island).

God Bless
