Passing Leadership to Doug Reeves

 Doug and Marge Reeves were part of the 53rd class of Sunset and graduated in 1990. His first preaching work was in Rotan, Texas, where they loved the community, schools and people.

There's a Famine in Our Land

“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I will send a famine on the land, not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, but rather for hearing the words of the LORD.“ Amos 8:11

10,000 Solar Players Around the World

Chris Swinford handing Ed-Mark Delacion the 10,000th Solar Player

Please rejoice with us as we celebrate a significant milestone in the Solar Mission. This summer the 10,000th solar player was placed in the hands of Ed-Mark Delacion, in the Philippines. Ed-Mark is a young professional, living in Manila who plans to use his solar player to establish a church in his home village. He also has a second solar player to help him continue to study while he is working in Manila. When he returns to the village, the studies can be deeper and more beneficial, as the young Christians grow in their knowledge and depth of insight.

DiscipleTrips

Welcome Circle in Belize

Have you ever wanted to go on an International Mission Trip? Perhaps you’ve wondered what it would be like to work alongside a local missionary and learn for yourself what it means to “go and make disciples of all nations.”  Maybe you’ve thought mission work was just for the “professionals” and your job is just to “send.”  Well, DiscipleTrips is here to make missions accessible to nearly anyone who has a desire to be involved in mission work.

Phase 4 Solar Update 07/2018

Solar Mission Philippines

One of the primary distributions for the Solar Mission Philippines happened last week. From the initial accounts, it was a great week with many Filipinos being so appreciative of the gift of the solar player for their ministry. The main event was a part of the Heritage Bible College Lectures. The distribution was the biggest of the year and puts us well on our way to distributing the 2,000 solar players promised by the end of the year. There were 590 distributed at the lectures which brings the total delivered to the Philippines for the year to 955.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a beautiful country, full of friendly people with a population of about 4.9 million, the official language is Spanish. Costa Rica is well known for producing good coffee, to the point that some will say that Juan Valdez gets there his coffee! This country is located in Central America; border of Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. Catholicism is the predominant religion; according to Wikipedia about 76% of the Costa Rican population is Catholic. This beautiful country is in need of the truth.

Solar Mission Philippines

Brian Garnett giving players outThe Solar Mission to distribute 2,000 Solar Players throughout the islands of the Philippines is well underway.  Almost one third of the money has been raised and distributions will take up most of the rest of the year to complete the task. At the same time, we are still getting requests from South America and Africa for additional solar players to help fill the needs there.

Planning and Dreaming

In March, Brian Garnett took 150 players to distribute at a church conference with over 1,500 in attendance. The players were given to church leaders. Brian reported that there were 150 very happy people and 1,350 that were very disappointed. While Brian was on an earlier trip, a congregation contacted Sunset about getting a player to a preacher they knew in Cebu. Brian was able to reach Manuel Daliwa and another preacher at a McDonald’s. Since that time, Manuel has planted two churches in the mountains and baptized many using the solar player to help teach.
