08 Feb Pritchard Family Newsletter – 01 – 02 – 2019
We arrived home from Cape Verde a few days before Christmas. What a blessing it was to be with family and friends during that special time. We, as most of you know, came home for medical reasons. We have been so blessed to be able to deal with and resolve some of these problems.
We have seen a few of our supporters and held about a dozen meetings in churches from Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky, Arkansas and Illinois. We pray that we have been a blessing to these churches as we have shared about the ministry and some of the upcoming opportunities. We have prayed that these things be not soon forgotten, but etched upon each memory, for the sake of the gospel and its advancement.
Let me share with you what the next few months will look like for us. February 14th, A 40’ container will be shipped to Cape Verde as part of the Tons of Truth ministry. Many of you have given to make this possible. Thank you. On this container are nearly 4,000 Bibles, 144,000 specialized John and Romans, and 20,000 School Kits with New Testaments. This container will arrive in Cape Verde sometime end of March beginning of April. We will be using the material for a scripture distribution project in the public schools in the month of September. Please pray with us. We have always seen opposition, and expect that this time will be no different. Pray that we will be ready and that God will give us guidance. We have a week before shipment and both material and financial needs remain.
I will be returning February 20th to Cape Verde, sadly I will have to leave Sarah and the kids behind. We feel that it will be wiser to let her have the baby here in the states in light of the complications. I hope to return a few weeks before she delivers in May. We will keep you updated as to the progress of Sarah and our soon to be baby boy.
When I return we will start classes in the bible college with the 5 men and their families that are currently in training. I ask your prayers for each of these students; Pascoal, Carlos, Jesuino, Clovis and Edson. All of these men are serving in different ministries and have upon their shoulders the task to faithfully preach the gospel and lead their own people in the paths of truth. Pray that God uses us to shape and prepare them to the fullest extent possible for the gospel ministry.
Speaking of preparing men, I would like to mention Preach Evangelistic Ministries; Mentoring Men for Mission training program. We are asking God to send families and individuals to train and prepare for mission work among the unreached peoples of the World. So much work needs to be done and many are the laborers needed to bring in the harvest. If you are interested, or know someone that would be, visit our website for more info preachteams.org
Thank you for your faithful prayer and support.
For His Glory,
Phillip, Sarah, Mason, Micah, Sofia and Sadie +1
