The Global Missions Committee of White Bluff Chapel supports the Wycliffe Bible Translation Ministry through your donations.
We are currently sponsoring the Toler Family, Kris, Susan and their two children Kieran and Elyse. They are currently located in Central Mexico in the mountainous region, in proximity to a city called San Luis Potosi. The village that they minister to is approximately 50 miles from town about a 2 hour trip depending on the weather.
They spend one week in town in their apartment and three weeks in the village. While in town they work with the bible translation team. Their living quarters in the village are very limited with the utilities. The only connection they have to the outside world is when they're in town.
While in town they work on bible translations from English to the Pame language a form of Spanish. They have translated 19 bible stories to Pame. At the end of this article I have added two links. These links show the animated bible stories that have been translated to Pame for the children of La Prada. Kris expressed the excitement in the children's faces as seen for the first time when they heard these stories in their own language.
Kris is the administrator of the Central Pame Region and has since been asked to take over the Northern Region also. Needless to say they are keeping very busy.
Besides bible translation they support Christianity in the villages with teaching, counseling, building church buildings and being involved in baptisms. Kris and Susan aid in supporting the pastors of the churches.
Although I mentioned Kris a lot in this article Susan, Kieran and Elyse play a very important role in this ministry. They all have a part to play in communicating God's Love to the people of La Prada. Right now Susan is the backbone of this family. As I write Kris, Kieran and Elyse all have the flu.
Prayer is a very important part of support for their ministry. Please pray for them and the people of La Prada. And if you would like to aid in financial support just drop a check in the collection and note it for Wycliffe Ministry. You can view the Toler's Christmas 2016 newsletter. Harry Seurkamp is the Chapel liaison for this mission. If you want more information you can contact Harry.
Animated Bible links are:
May God Bless and keep the Tolers safe.

Wee Can Know (WCK) is a children's mission in New Orleans supported by the Chapel through the Global/National Mission committee led by Vicki Thompson. The committee and Chapel recently approved Extra Blessing money for WCK. Phil and Debbie Smith are the leaders of this mission. A lot of their work is the 9th Ward area.
WCK reported that some of the Extra Blessing money was used to purchase four wagons and create 396 salvation packets for use in the Gospel Gloat Parade.
Additionally, on the personal side Debbie was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a successful lumpectomy. Phil recently had laminectomy on the L4 and L5 lamina. His was successful as well.
WCK continues to reach more children and their efforts are enhanced by the Chapel's support and that of other churches in the New Orleans area.
You can read their latest newsletter and thank you to see some of the activities they are a part of in their mission. If you want to know more about this mission or want to get more involved contact Bill Burris. Bill is the Chapel liaison for WCK.
