Solar Mission:Send the Light

Phase III Deliveries

Bob and Gina Waldron and Chanetta Williams for Mission UpreachOver the past 12 months funds have been collected, lessons have been translated, SD cards have been loaded. Now it is time for thanksgiving to God. Last year a few deliveries were made, but most of the 3,000 Solar Players for Phase III will be delivered in the next few months. While we are still receiving the remainder of the $1,500,000 needed for completion of the project, enough has been received that many of the trips are already scheduled. At this point, plans  have been made to deliver the remaining Spanish Solar Players to 13 countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. Through these trips, God will be praised and thanksgiving will be made for the Word of God.

Phase III Continues

Since the last update, deliveries of solar players to the Spanish speaking world have continued. Chris Swinford led a group to Nicaragua and distributed players with the help of our partner schools in that country. Tim Burow and Arthur Puente took players to Ecuador and worked with Josh Marcum and the Quito School of Biblical Studies to distribute the players among the preachers there.

So far in Phase III there have been over 300 players distributed in Cuba, Honduras, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Ecuador.

Phase III Taking Shape

Truitt and Arthur handing out in CubaAfter a year of intensive work, forty-four Biblical courses in Spanish have been formatted and organized along with an audio menu. The Spanish version Solar Player now contains over 500 hours of Bible study material along with the complete Bible. The players are now ready to be delivered. Our many brotherhood partners are eager to put the Sunset solar players in the hands of leaders that will use the material and training to multiply their efforts across the Spanish-speaking world. With the help of God and a brotherhood of Christians committed to spreading the Kingdom, Phase III will make an impact on Latin America that will be see results for generations.

Phase III Beginning Stages

As we announced in the last update, Phase III is taking the solar-powered audio players into Spanish-speaking Latin America. Many lessons have been learned from Phase II where the material was translated into Amharic for Ethiopia. Sunset has been working over the past several months to finish the courses in Spanish so that there will be a complete set of classes ready to go.

Phase II Complete

With a final trip in December 2015 to Ethiopia to deliver and distribute the solar-powered audio players in Amharic, Phase II of the Solar Event was completed. This special occasion concludes the year-long efforts by Sunset and our ministry partners around the world that have given and prayed to make this possible. Our prayers now continue that God will take our efforts and multiply their effect for the glory of His kingdom.
