By the grace of God, 2 shepherds preached two messages during the evening program. These messages talked about repentance in the middle of affliction time in our people. 3 life testimonies were powerful. Young people have been encouraged and receptive towards the Word of God. The environment was youth oriented. Please keep praying for Venezuela.

I. New Chapter (Margarita Island UBF, Venezuela) Pioneering

Sp. Alirio and Yenny are among the first members of Caracas UBF, Venezuela. They have served Caracas UBF as coworkers of P. Gustavo and Katiuska faithfully so far. By the grace of God, they made a decision to pioneer Margarita Island, Nueva Esparta State. They will be sent out right after the Summer Bible conference.


Joshua 24:15: “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as chfor me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

 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.

  God has given us the Chile UBF Winter Conference with the title “truly free.” We had prayed for 15 people, but 11 people participated (1 child apart). 2 Bible students participated (Luis Solano, Johan). From Argentina, M. Isaac Cho and M. Mary Cho participated and served in this camp sacrificially.

Messengers were as follows:

  1. 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.

Bolivia UBF I celebrated a beautiful HC between Sh. Aberto (Industrial Engineering) and Sh. Andreina (Medical School) in UBF center, on Saturday, at 8 p.m. June 24th. M. Esteban Cho officiated HC ceremony with Gen 1:27,28 "Be fruitful and prosperous.” 

Acts 2:17 “In the last days, God says I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

The title: "God's Persistent love.”
Time: July 20th- 23rd.
Place: Hotel Fonte Santa Tereza (90km from São Paulo).
