Clinton & Ann Satio Family
Clinton and Ann Saito are our missionaries of focus working out of Armstrong, Ontario ministering to Armstrong, Whitesand and Gull Bay First Nation communities. They serve the Lord along with their five children: Silas, Hadassah, Barabas, Lydia and Andrew.
- Sunday church services in Armstrong and bi-monthly church services in Gull Bay at the recreation centre
- Armstrong Sunday School followed by a fellowship lunch
- Tuesday night prayer and Bible studies
- Women’s weekly Bible studies
- A Whitesand radio ministry where Silas reads a devotional and features a radio theatre program called Jonathan Park Adventures
- VBS this year has two groups from Ontario traveling to Armstrong to support programs in both Armstrong and Gull Bay (Pray for the salvation of these children and God’s blessing on the VBS outreach)
The Saito’s continue to support the needy in the community with transportation, grocery runs, distribution of clothing and the providing of household items.
Clinton has expanded his reach into surrounding communities like Collins and Martin Falls as the Lord grants opportunity.
Darkness abounds up north and the Saito’s shine as God’s light on the mission field. Your prayers are valued for these people groups and the family as they continue to proclaim the gospel and demonstrate God’s love to each soul.
¡Buenas noches a todos en Bethel-Park!
Prayer Points: follow-up of the ship's visit (thank the Lord and pray for the new representatives the Lord has raised up across Chile), Chilean Christians would respond to the Lord's invitation to go to the least reached, provision for travel expenses for team members to facilitate the conferences, Agape Ministry (outreach to those living on the streets, shelter and protection for them as the nights get cold, response to the Gospel message), Cena de Amor - May 11 and June 8 - servant hearts of love as we serve the meal, for the music team, the speaker and that people would be saved! Pray for salvation for Juan and Armando - two of the friends I regularly see on the streets.
More specific for our beloved sister: openness and surrender to the Lord’s leading, thankfulness and perseverance in the midst of challenges, mentoring of Gabriella, ability to master conversational Spanish and her application for a long term visa.
Peter and Nelly Cerqueira
Our feature missionaries for the months of March and April are Peter and Nelly Cerqueira, It was a blessing to have been able to spend time with Peter and Nelly, and to welcome Daisy into the family. Nelly and Peter returned to Portugal on February 8th. They will be continuing the work of evangelism and building up believers. In Portugal, there has been a failure to disciple believers. Many are given leadership positions that they are unqualified for because there aren’t many to choose from. There is very little Bible training and study. Assembly members are not sharing their faith with others and the Gospel is not going forth. There are still unreached areas, and areas in which churches have died and no evangelical work remains. By God’s grace, Peter and Nelly hope to see the church revived and new works started. Peter is involved in Bible teaching and preaching in various assemblies. He is also working on a YouTube channel, since people spend more time on the internet than reading or studying. There is very little good Bible teaching in Portuguese. Praise the Lord for continued progress on the house and grounds. They have a little over four acres and Peter and Nelly want to use all of it to honour the Lord. Through the work and upkeep, they continue to make connections and build bridges for the sake of the Gospel.
Pray that they would be bold in evangelism, always giving a reason for the hope that lies within them.
Pablo and Sarah Cenepo-Torres
Pablo, Sarah Cenepo-Torres and family serve in Trujillo, Peru. They are currently on furlong, with family in Maryland, US., Lord willing they will return in June.
Pray - For their adoption journey, that God will make everything clear and show which child should belong to them. That their time in the USA would be refreshing, that their reports would be intentional focused on the furtherance of the Gospel. For the leadership of Centro Biblico Trujillo and that the Church body would desire to meet together more and more. For Hogar de Esperanza (Orphanage) that the land disputes would be settled, children would come to salvation, new children would adjust well to their new home and those being adopted would remember the truth they were taught.
