Warm sun shining greetings from the Corneliuses in Dominica!
Below is a picture I just took from our porch of our van under the almond tree. It used to be dark blue but as you can see it is light blue. Rust had begun to take its toll on the exterior and with a special gift last month, we have been doing a lot of work on the van or bus as it is called here in Dominica. From steering, to suspension, to body work, to reupholstered seats, to a new clutch, and tomorrow replacing a defective cam shaft, we almost have a new vehicle. This van is our ministry lifeline and we praise the Lord for supplying at just the right time to keep it going for a few more years. Just click on the picture for more photos if you are interested.
Last Sunday, I had the privilege of baptizing two adults and two teens. Three of them are from our new church plant in the Kalinago Territory. The four individuals to my left in the picture below testified to me of their faith in Christ and publicly testified before the church prior to their baptism. The exciting fact is that Betty, the adult lady who was baptized was largely responsible for bringing the adult man, Papit, and the teen girl, Vernel, to the Lord. I had the privilege of leading Leo, the tall teen, to the Lord a few years ago. With these taking this step of obedience to the Lord, we are very encouraged and our hearts are full. Please pray for Betty, Vernel, Papit, and Leo that they will keep turning their eyes to our Savior and helping others do the same.

Your investment in this ministry continues, by God’s mercy and grace, to reap eternal fruit for His Kingdom.
To God be the Glory!
By God’s Grace and for His Glory,
