A year ago, we received an application to study at our institute in Mexico from Vicente Tigre (far left) a young Guarijio man. His name in English would be Vincent TIGER. He helped the missionaries learn his language, and had come to know the Lord through their teaching. When we get this type application, we wonder if their Spanish will be “good enough” for them understand the teaching, or if they would be better off studying with the missionaries in their native language. We are so glad we admitted him, he is such a blessing. Vicente not only excelled in the curriculum, he did it while translating Galatians to his own language. I just received an e-mail from one of our missionaries who works with a group of Guarijio on the outskirts of Chihuahua City. They had to move to the city, but continue to reach the Guarijio. Here’s what he says:
“But God in His grace and mercy has given us another opportunity with Guarijio here in the City of Chihuahua. Linda has been teaching some Guarijio Ladies for many months. Luis, a son of one of the ladies has joined the group. It is a small group, but I am sure precious in the sight of our Heavenly Father.
A young Guarijio believer who started this semester in our Bible Institute took over the teaching. His name is Vicente. Vicente was thrilled with the chance to teach someone in his own language. (He is also a gifted teacher). We are two lessons away from the presentation of the Gospel. Please pray as Vicente presents Christ this week. We will be teaching on the burial on Wednesday the 11th of May and the Resurrection on Saturday the 14th.”
Would you please pray for Vicente right now as he presents the final lessons in this very important series?
