    Medellin, Colombia, Assemblies of God Churches Plant 81 Churches

    Medellin, Colombia, with missionary, Kevin Elder (back right), local pastors

    When we arrived in Medellin in 1978 for our first term as mis- sionaries, there were three Assemblies of God churches and a night Bible school. The Lord enabled us to plant six new churches and add more classes and students in the Bible school. In December 1980, World Missions asked us to help with Spanish television and later to become the founding di- rector of International Media Ministries (lMM)- Recently mis- sionary Kevin Elder invited us to speak at the Bible school graduation. There were as many in the graduating class as there were in the whole school when we were in Medellin. What a joy to visit with pastors and see the growth of the church! The nine churches we left have planted 81additional churches with thousands in attendance each week. Your in- vestment in missions is paying eternal dividends!

    In 1959, the Cuban Assemblies of God had 92 churches. Some years later, the government approved the development of neighborhood house churches that would be within walking distance of people's homes. This would eliminate gov- ernment expense for extra buses and break up large crowds traveling to churches. The number of regular and house churches numbers in the thou- sands. The Fellowship has been faced with the challenge of training leaders for these places of worship. Many of the house churches have several hundred members. The church is without a formal Bible school and some pastors do not have books to study the Word; paper and educational materials are scarce.

    Several years ago, the government began relaxing building restrictions. My son, David, and I became invoived with the CutJan Assemblies of God when - --~-- Vida Abundante church in Havana was being built. General Superintendent Hector Hunter asked us to help with audio and video for the church. At that time, Fellowship leaders also envisioned building an Assemblies of God head- quarters with a media center where Bible instructors would record classes that could be disbursed throughout the Fellowship on CDs and videos.

    When the Fellowship received approval to construct the headquarters build- ing, Superintendent Hunter asked David, Jr., Gerald Jackson and me to design and equip the media center. With the help of many teams, the government- approved building is almost ready to be occupied. The media center within the building also has government approval and is complete except for painting, air conditioning and equipment.

    During our October 1-9visit to Cuba, David Jr., Gerald Jackson and I were able to provide two audiovisual edit suites for the new center. For two days David Jr. provided orientation on the new equipment to the team that will manage the media center. He will continue to guide the installation of the equipment and train the team. Training teams in Latin America are also working to provide training materials for the Cuban church.

    The Media Center will enable the church to provide education materials to the workers and to be prepared for future opportunities to proclaim the Gospel to the Cuban people.

    Your financial support is making this ministry possible. Thank you for partnering with us!
