Belize UBF had a Summer Bible Conference in August 4-6 at the Mountain View Camp. The theme was “You Give Them Something to Eat”(Mark 6:37a). We learned Jesus’ compassionate shepherd heart and 5 loaves and 2 fish faith. When we offer what we have by faith, the Lord can do great work in feeding many campus students and serving world campus mission.
We thank God who abundantly blessed our 2017 Brazil Young Leaders Conference, entitled “God’s Unfailing Love.” 64 participants attended our conference, including guests from Bolivia, El Salvador, Venezuela, Mexico and USA. During the 4 days (July 20-23rd), we could listen to Jesus’ voice and experience His love through the messages and life testimonies. All the messages were preached in English and as for the testimonies, there were English subtitles. All the messages harmoniously preached about the Unfailing Love of our Heavenly Father and of our Lord Jesus.

Mothers from Caracas UBF had a sweet celebration on the day.
Like every second Sunday of May, each year, UBF ministry in Caracas honored our mothers on the day. A special Bible message was preached, based on Ezekiel 37, “The Valley of Dry Bones.” It was a timely word for encouraging us to preach God’s word, spreading hope in the middle of the times that we’re living.

Hebrew 12: 2, “… fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Key Verse Luke 13:18-19, “Then Jesus asked, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.’”
Thank God for his grace, that he has been with us during one year in 2016. Thank God for his grace, that he has formed us through various shapes of trainings and refinements, and timely guided us to the word. I pray that we may look back on God's grace and prepare for the new year, 2017, through annual mission report.
