An Immediate Open Door of Opportunity

We have a very specific need at the Seminary Wesleyano de Venezuela this week.

God has provided one of our graduates, Julio, a pastor and general contractor who lives 24 hours away by bus, to come and work on the property.  He and his team of five will construct more needed security walls around the perimeter of the property – something that is becoming more and more critical due to the life situation for so many in Venezuela.

Julio will also be able to bring two additional workers with him to finish the Master’s Classroom/Library which we have to provide for our Master’s classes beginning in January.  These men work for simply a small honorarium, plus meals, travel, and housing.  This is a great opportunity for us to get this space finished at a very low cost.  However, we have not budgeted this additional money and we need it now.

For just $3,000 we can finish this space and have it ready for the Master’s Classes.  Can you help today? Please pray about this and if God is laying it on your heart, send a check to Venezuela Now, Inc. at PO Box 1655, Duluth, GA  30096 or give via PayPal by clicking on the following:

Why is this so important?  Here is a report we received last week from one of our students who will be in this Master’s Degree program:
Pastor Guillermo is the pastor of a large church in Barquisimeto. He told me they started a new congregation 4 Sundays ago north of town. They have already acquired about 2.5 acres, large by Venezuelan standards. This past Sunday 156 attended and over the last 2 weeks 18 have become followers of Jesus. He said God laid this effort on his heart in a course I taught not long ago. WOW! Thank you for your prayers and financial support for this work. Lives are being transformed.

Help us if you can.  Saturday (later today) I will perform the wedding for one of our graduates and preach in a great evangelistic service on Sunday afternoon in the church of a graduate.  Then Monday I begin teaching Evangelism in the Book of Acts.  Friday and Saturday of next week we will see 17 students graduate with a Bachelors of Theology degree, celebrate our 10 year anniversary of the Seminary and break ground for the new Medical Clinic on the Campus.  Please pray for all this.

Thank you for all your help and prayers in the past. Your support is bearing fruit, “fruit that will remain.” Help us keep this ministry growing as these passionate followers of Christ are equipped to reach this nation and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

In Christ,
Warren Lathem
