What God is doing through L'Institut Biblique Logos

November 2013

 Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you all for your prayers and support. We had a great missions trip to the Dominican Republic with the team from First Baptist Church of Pompano Beach. What a terrific group of people! Their love and devotion was such a blessing to us.

 1379341_532623533479457_1418365355_nWe were up and out everyday  praying and witnessing in various neighborhoods around Santo Domingo. We visited and participated in the Institute classes every night. It was a joy to see all God is doing. Fifty-one people accepted Christ during the week! Our group had 2 teams that were fluent in language skills in  Spanish and Creole! No one was left out. We were able to witness and plant seeds in areas where new church plants are being prepared and evangelizing in others areas already started.

The highlight for us was graduation on Saturday, when 210 graduates came to Santo Domingo for graduation. They came from the centers where they have been studying with L’Institut Biblique Logos. The students recognized Scott immediately from the DVD’s and were so happy to meet him! What a joy for us both!

 Meanwhile God is still at work here in Miami, too. We are just completing  9 weeks of our classes. Even though we were gone classes took place with two very capable teachers and  our registration crew was on hand to do registration and grade papers! We could not function very effectively without their help. volunteer at work 003Thank you Mom Nelson, Lois, Linda, and Florence! Exif_JPEG_PICTUREExif_JPEG_PICTURE

It’s a team effort and we praise the Lord for what He is doing. We have over 60 enrolled in Miami  and many others are taking classes by correspondence. These ladies grade most of the homework for us as well as set out food for refreshments for the students, take in registration fees, hand out books, etc. We are thankful to God for them and their ministry to us and the students.Our students love them and are always happy to see them!

Les traveaux de traductionGod is at work in Haiti as well, as a team of young people work hard translating into Creole our courses from French . The goal is to make the courses even more available to everyone! Not to mention the depth of study of God’s Word to these young people, nothing helps you learn like translation work! The computers were bought by Logos via your contributions! We praise the Lord for what He is doing!

When the translation of a course is finished it will be sent to Scott for quality control then we will begin printing them in Creole where they are needed. Thank you for helping to make this possible through your prayers and contributions to this work.

Right: The next set of books ready to ship to Haiti for the classes ! More than 650 books, with homework and tests!

We continue to marvel at what God is doing through the internet as people from all over the world continue to find and do classes online.

This month we had people from 39 countries visit our site. 92 were from France, 74 from Dominican Republic and 74 from Haiti followed by Canada with 34. Most surprising was 1 from Venezuela who visited 10 pages! Many of the countries in Africa come every month! We even had a visitor from Japan who stayed on for 8 minutes. The gospel of Salvation is clearly presented on the site for free. So that’s  why we get so excited when people come and stay awhile! Also the numbers form Germany and Switzerland continue to grow. We had 8 people come from Morocco and definitely stayed long enough to hear the gospel message! Next month we will highlight some of the internet students!

 We thank God for all He is doing, for your support and prayers. We hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends!Picture2

We are looking forward to having our granddaughter Nicole back from college and we welcome our new grandson Brandon!

In His Love,

 Scott & Dori Nelson
