William Baer - SBC Missionary in Paraguay

Dear Prayer Partners, 

Thanks so much for praying for our vacation time in the U.S. in May.  It was a WONDERFUL time
filled with many special family visits and events!!! We both feel that it was the VERY BEST vacation we have ever had in our lives! We know that His amazing grace and your faithful prayers made it so.  We are most grateful!!!

As we "plug back into" our work here, we would ask that you lift up the following:
1) In a few weeks we will be teaching at a cross-cultural worker orientation facility for a week. 

Please lift us up as we prepare and as we teach, that we would be used of our Father to bless and to help prepare these future workers, as they follow His call. 

2) Today we visited a small group of believers who are planting a new church in a small community outside of Asunción.  During the meeting, "N" shared a very touching testimony.  Although raised in a Christian home, at age 14 he chose to leave all of that behind and try all the world had to offer.  He lived like this until, when in his 40's, he suffered a serious illness.  It was at this time that he experienced the love of our Father through His people and came to truly know Him in a personal way. Now "N" faithfully serves the One he rejected for so long, alongside his wife "F."  While 5 of their 6 children have come to know Him, one son continues in the old footsteps of his father. 

Pray for this dear couple, their lost son, and this small group of believers who are currently meeting under a shade tree as they plant this new church. Pray that our Father will guide and bless their work as they reach out to their community.

3) Please ask that our personal devotional lives will remain strong and focused on Him and on His Word. This is the real source of power and anointing for the work He has called us to do.

Your faithful intercession, loving encouragement, and generous financial support (through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering) enable us to serve Him here.  Thank you for partnering alongside us in His Kingdom work. 

You are GREATLY appreciated!

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. 
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track. (Proverbs 3:5-6, The Message) 

Trusting Him, 

Bill & Terri
