Honduras Carlos, Lifeline's Administrator in Honduras, writes: The Omoa Christian Church celebrated its 8th anniversary last Sunday! Around 300 people celebrated to give thanks to our Lord. There were many people and friends who attended who are not Christians and they heard the Good News. Now, our work is to continue praying and waiting for the harvest that God will give to this church in His time. Thank you for your prayers for Omoa Christian church and Pastor Jose Luis. (see photo on right) Happy Birthday Ashley! Ashley lives at the Omoa Children's Home and recently celebrated her 10th birthday! Praise Lord! Josue Omar was baptized in the Choloma Christian Church.

Andrew Brechbuhler (Logistic's Manager), Andy Sims (Leadership Development Director), and Ben Simms (Executive Vice President) had a good week connecting with Lifeline supports and potential partners at the Exponential Conference.

Bob DeVoe, Royce Cheeseman, and Todd Krahel are in Haiti and will travel to 4 countries in Central America.

He'd felt God's nudge toward ministry and served faithfully wherever he could, but it was hard to believe in such big dreams. Deybee jumped at the chance to attend training for ministry recruits in Costa Rica. That's where he met Yoselyn, a beautiful girl with the same dreams he had. One of their guest instructors was José Rodriguez, a Panamanian who had baptized Deybee's pastor. José had recently joined Lifeline to launch a new work in El Salvador. This training ignited Deybee's passion for ministry more than ever, but there was nowhere to go. So, he ended up back in Honduras settling for a job he was good at - auto body repair - but that would never satisfy what was stirring in his soul. When told José had started a Bible Institute in El Salvador, Deybee didn't hesitate. He quit his job, gathered a few things, drove to El Salvador and begged José to disciple him. Before long, Deybee was José's star student, studying with a dozen others each morning and working to establish house churches in the evenings. After graduating from the Bible Institute, Deybee continued to work alongside José, growing as a leader and even discipling some of the new students himself. Yoselyn came to El Salvador in 2012 to join him in marriage and ministry. But God wasn't finished yet. Deybee and Yoselyn have accepted the call to launch Lifeline's new work in Guatemala. While still waiting for licenses and funding, both know God will open the way. No dream is too big for God. You can connect and impact lives through Lifeline's Bible Institutes and Church Ministry!

Thank you for your love and support of Haiti and Lifeline! Devotion The Truth of the Matter On a cold winter day in January I was eating lunch with my 5 year old granddaughter. As we ate, Madison kept looking closely at the gray sweater I was wearing. I could tell the wheels in her mind were turning, but I wasn't sure where those wheels were taking her thoughts until she looked at me and said, "Grandpa, your sweater matches your hair." My wife, son, daughter-in-law and even I laughed at this innocent statement. There was no denying the fact that my gray sweater does match the color of my hair. But Madison had a look on her face that seemed to ask, "Why are you laughing?" From her perspective as a 5 year old, she had simply spoken a matter of fact truth. People today are searching for truth in their lives, but often come up empty in their pursuit of it. A trusted friend betrays a confidence, after they promised, "Your secret is safe with me." The business deal that looked so good on paper falls apart, in spite of being told it's a "can't miss" proposition. A little girl is crushed because, once again, daddy is too busy to show up for her soccer game, even though he promised this time would be different and he would come. Scripture gives us a famous example of one who questions the source of truth even when the truth is looking him in the eye. In John 18, Jesus has been brought before Pilate by Jews demanding his execution. There is a give and take conversation between them, triggered by Pilate's question, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus finally says to Pilate, "...I came into the world to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me." Pilate retorts, "What is truth?" Many are asking that question. Sometimes Christians will ask that question. In a time where there is much confusion about what is true, let's note what is said of God's truth in Psalm 119:160, "All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal." God's words always stand strong and true. God is always faithful to those who trust his truth.
  6. 6. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[5/6/2014 8:56:13 AM] Jesus says of himself in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Like Pilate, the truth is looking us in the eye. How will we respond? We can keep trying different things in the hopes of finding truth, only to be disappointed; or we can embrace the truth of God found through his son Jesus Christ. If we make that choice, we will find purpose, hope, and new life beyond this world. by Keith Dimbath, Lifeline's Work Team Director www.Lifeline.org Forward this email This email was sent to missionsrvcs@gmail.com by news@lifeline.org | Update Profile/Email Address | Instant removal with SafeUnsubscribe™ | Privacy Policy.
