Missionary Of The Month!
 
   “I am the way, the truth, and the Life” … Jesus 
 
April 2019 …                                        Don & Mary Pitman
 
   Don and Mary Pitman have served with Wycliffe Bible Translators/SIL for many years and are now retired in Dallas. They continue to serve where they can and are blessed by the continued support of Berean Bible Church. This past year they celebrated with the Keliko people in Africa as they dedicated their New Testament, the 1000th, translated with the involvement of WBT/SIL.
 
   Though Don was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years ago he is still about to work on landscaping around their apartment building and helps out at the WBT center and at church. Mary has experienced some Atrial Fibrillation but is doing well otherwise and is active with sorting mail and manning the front desk on Wednesdays. She also compiles a monthly letter with news and prayer needs of WBT folks who were part of the Bolivia branch of WBT.    One of the main objectives of the Wycliffe center is to train new linguists and translators. This work has grown so markedly in recent years that a few weeks ago they saw a new sign had been put up at the entrance to the center — “Dallas International University”.
 
   Don and Mary have seen reports of the horrific flooding in Nebraska. “We imagine that most if not all of you have been affected. Our hearts ache for you. So glad that you know the Maker of heaven and earth and that He knows all about your situation!”
 
“Many thanks to you all for your prayer and financial partnership even in our retirement.”

BBC has been helping send people all over the world to tell others about Jesus for years – and their stories are important! This page will feature a different missionary each month and our hope is that their stories will encourage and challenge you to remember to pray for them and remember that when you give to support BBC you are already involved in supporting them!
