SEPTEMBER 2022 UPDATE…….

Many praises from Marty’s trip to Bolivia! Thank you for your prayers for Marty. Despite some ill health, he was able to teach all his sessions and meet with the leadership of various BCM Latin America fields.

BCM LATIN AMERICA CANDIDATE ORIENTATION:

BCM leadership from Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico were in attendance. Along with existing missionaries, there were more than a dozen new candidates from four nations—Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela.  “Guiding Children to Christ; Guiding Churches to Children” is BCM’s core ministry of helping national churches develop strong children’s ministries and raise up a well-discipled future leadership for the church. ***Please pray for all these candidates and missionaries as they return home to serve in raising up children’s ministries in their areas. In particular, for the candidates from Ecuador and Venezuela, as they are the first BCM missionaries in those countries, and much lies ahead as they get ministry rolling there.

PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH:

 We asked for prayer a year ago for God’s leading as the presidential search began for Marty’s replacement (it is hard to believe he has now been president of BCM for seventeen years!). This does not mean stepping completely away from BCM ministry as long as we have health to continue, but simply passing the baton to a new president to permit a strong, smooth transition. The goal has been to have a new president in place by the time Marty turns sixty-five a few months from now. An excellent presidential candidate has been extended an invitation, and he is in the process of making his decision. ****Please pray with us that God give him wisdom in his decision and that the right successor to lead this global ministry into the next phase of its future be raised up to take Marty’s place.

****As always, please continue in prayer for us regarding ongoing crises in Ukraine, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka. Further updates for prayer can be found at our BCM FaceBook page. Thank you again for all your outpouring of prayers and sacrificial giving for our BCM ministries.

Thank you for continuing to pray with us.
