August 25, 2013 Dear Praying Friends, Many things have happened since our last letter. God has been good and has blessed us in so many undeserving ways. I’d like to start off this month’s letter with an urgent prayer request. Just a few weeks ago after having stroke-like symptoms, my mother-in-law took my father-in-law to the ER. Tests were run, and a stroke was ruled out. After an MRI and biopsy, a cancerous tumor was discovered in his brain. We were all completely shocked! Please keep Larry Lee in your prayers, as he has already begun radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

 

We’ll soon be hosting a Pastors’ and Workers’ Conference and Alumni Meeting to plan where to start new churches and reach more people. I’ll meet with some pastors about encouraging their churches’ teenagers to enroll in our college.

Please pray for our radio-station paperwork to be accomplished soon. The most-listened to broadcaster in our city, along with our congressman, is assisting us with getting a license. We’ve already received testimonies from people in our city about the music and preaching they have heard, so we know this will help a lot of people in the long run. Our city has a half million residents, and most will be within coverage. Bro. Gene Sharp at www.ibmradio.com helped us set up our station, and he assists local churches in the States to do the same.                                         

 

In Christ,

 

Ricky Martin
