In 2009, The Lillys traveled to Venezuela for a second summer of teaching English as a witness for the local churches. At that time, Edithmar, pictured above with her Pastor-husband and son, was a young teenager who served faithfully in her church and became a special friend and helper to the Lillys during their stay. Some years later Edi married and her husband became pastor of one of the church plants the Lillys assisted with English outreach. Just a few weeks ago, Edi, Pastor Deivis, and little Jeziel were anticipating the birth of Hailey in a month, when through tragic circumstances in the local hospital Edi and Hailey went to be with the Lord.
In Memory of Edi’s Christian testimony, a Mobile Bible Club Bag will be sent filled with everything needed for their neighborhood Bible teaching times with the children in Venezuela. The bag is packed with Spanish Bible lesson visuals, songs, charts, tracts, Scriptures, Worker training materials, music, microphone and amplifier, stool, and easel.
Hearing of this tragedy online, some have already given support. However, if you would like to join in this project as an encouragement to the believers in Venezuela, Pastor Deivis and son, please make mention of this in your correspondence to us.
The Mobile Bible Bag Project has a $500 monetary value (Teaching aids, visuals, lessons, devotional books, racts, stool, easel, microphone and amplifier, backpack, additional supplies, packing material, shipping fees), but unmeasured, eternal investment. Undoubtedly, many of the other churches are also in need of such material. Your support allows for continued missions efforts in Venezuela - THANK YOU!
