News from Missionaries Pat and Melenda Edmiston

Dear Prayer Partners,

Melenda and I have been with Wycliffe Bible Translators since 1980 and don’t plan on retiring anytime soon! I have been working with Seed Company (under the umbrella of Wycliffe Bible Translators) for over 10 years now. God has worked through Seed Company to complete 576 New Testaments and 158 Old Testaments over the last 26 years.

Our model is to partner with people like you and Christians in the people groups needing Scripture in their Heart languages. The Seed Company assists over 950 languages currently under translation.  We are focusing on the 2,000 remaining Bibleless people groups as we direct our prayers and resources.

Thank you for your prayer support throughout 2019. We pray that as you have been a blessing to us, the Lord will multiply his blessing upon you. We could not continue our ministry without your help.

In His Love,

Pat and Melenda

News from Shining the Light Ministries

My last trip to Nicaragua was November 2017. As a Board Member of Shining The Light Ministries, I am kept aware of the work being done daily to improve the lives of our impoverished families in this land of volcanoes and lakes. However, reading and listening to the testimonies through weekly reports does not resonate in the heart and mind like seeing the results on the ground. Therefore, I was eager to return once again and walk among the Nica people within the communities where our ministry has been working the past seven years. To keep reading, click here.
