August prayer letter

August 2011

Dear Praying Friends,

Each preacher and teacher proclaimed truth from God’s word and the Holy Spirit used that truth day after day to convict the lost and strengthen the saved.  I preached Thursday morning and when I gave the invitation, four young men came forward to be saved!!  I preached again Friday morning and one more boy responded to the invitation and was gloriously saved!!!  PRAISE THE LORD!!!!

Under the leadership of missionaries Allen and Barbara Newton, the ministry of the Mount of Olives Christian camp continues to bear eternal fruit.  The theme for this camp was “God revealed through His creation” and we are all rejoicing over the five precious souls saved at the camp and encouraged that all five young men are returning to great churches where they will be discipled, baptized and strengthened.

I thank the Lord for the privilege I had to work together with a wonderful team of missionaries at this camp, Allen and Barbara Newton, David and Julie Loop, Mark and Aura Pereira, Lionel Martin, Beau Moore, and Dawn Hart.  

I also want to thank each and every one of you who so faithfully sacrifice financially to keep us ministering here and who labor for us in prayer!  Please continue to pray for more wonderful harvests here in Portugal.

Bringing in the sheaves,

Mark Hale
