Missionary Of The Month!
 
   “I am the way, the truth, and the Life” … Jesus 
 
 June 2019 …                                     Harold & Lois Holeman
 
   Harold and Lois Holeman served for many years with New Tribes Bible Institute and retired from full time teaching in 2013 (at age 75).  Since that time they have continued to serve the Lord in their church and community.  Here is a letter from Harold:
 
                    “ Greetings from our house to you—its been a long time.
 
   In 2013 our leadership asked us to retire as we were 75 and they were transitioning to younger teachers. It was the right decision, the right timing, and God’s will for us even though it took a while to adjust. We now have lived away from Ethnos 360 for 6 years.  We praise the Lord for the home he has provided.
 
   Our son Doug lives with us. Both his and my (Harold) health has not been the best.  Doug has dementia and needs home care 24/7 which keeps us busy.  He spends from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at a care facility which is a real blessing.
 
   I have diabetes with blood sugar issues, weakness and balance.  Lois and I are getting older but praise the Lord we are renewed in spirit daily as we walk with Him. We have a ministry of speaking, singing, and visiting people in a nursing home. Our prayer is that some of them will understand Jesus’s love for them and respond. On Fridays we have a Bible Study at our church that is a great time of fellowship with other seniors.
 
   Pray for us as we look to the Lord for the next step in our lives.  We will stay here for as long as our health will let us. Then our son, Harold, would like us to move closer to them. But Ethnos 360 has homes and an assisted living place in Florida with our names on the list.  At present we are unsure where God would have us so are waiting on His leading.
 
   We want to thank you all for standing with and supporting us for so long. God has been good to us and you guys are great!
 
          In the love of Jesus, Harold and Lois Holeman

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!
