Kintner’s July Newsletter – 2019

 July, 2019                                           

                “From Miletus he (Paul) sent to Ephesus and called for the elders of the church…So now brethren I                 commend you to God and to the work of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” Acts 20:17 and 32.

 

                I am not the Apostle Paul, but in the same manner, I was able to visit the pastors and churches in Cuenca, Ecuador where we served from 1991-2004, and meet with the pastors of seven of the churches in that city. What a delight it was to see many of the people from our time there walking faithfully with the Lord as well as the new generation of young people. A fine group of dedicated pastors met for a dinner to get acquainted, fellowship and pray together. Our BMM field administrator and his wife came up from Peru to meet with us also. We were encouraged by progress in the churches, and the level of leadership by these pastors. We observed a lack of systematic fellowship between the pastors and their families. We are suggesting a planned spiritual retreat in the future where the pastors and their families spend a week at our camp to rest, get acquainted, spiritually refreshed, and encourage each other in the ministry.

 

                Meanwhile, here at EBI we are assembling the latest eight mini-books on counseling themes, cutting, folding, collating, scoring the covers, and stapling the 24,000 books. Others in the office are preparing a display for the EXPOLIT conference in Miami, August 5 through 10 where major editorials and distributors gather to present their publications and major orders are placed for export.

 

                Elaine has patiently waited for a response from neurosurgeons within the Medicare and supplemental health program here in Florida, but there has been no response. She currently has an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon here in Sebring on Tuesday, July 30th. Please continue to pray with us as the pain level is extreme, and pain medication is not sufficient. We continue to wait on the Lord for His will in this matter.
