Prayer Letter

November, December
Dear Friends in Christ

Greetings from the beautiful country of Mexico with the temperature hovering around 75 degrees. The Hendricks family has had a good Christmas season and are enjoying the blessing of God. I have waited until now to send an end of the year report in part because of the challenges that I have had with the email server and in part because of some of the changes that we are seeing here in San Pancho.

We are thrilled to announce that Ben and Amanda are here for a period of six months in order for Ben to learn the language. They still are praying that God would supply all of the monies needed to stay that long and it is really important that they do so that the language will not only be learned but have time to stick. Ben is working hard, the kids are enjoying the yard, and we are enjoying Amanda’s company.

Teresia and I wanted to send a very heart-felt thank you to many of you who have helped with the finances of her surgery. She is doing great after surgery and we are seeing a steady improvement in her overall health. The entire amount was covered although they kept her an additional day. There was even some to continue allowing Teresia to see the doctor as she seeks to improve her overall health. Please continue to pray for us as we work here in Mexico and seek to please Him with our lives and our work.

The Misión Bautista Calvario is steady and we praise the Lord for the work that He is doing here in San Pancho. We have been visiting with some of the people who have attended with us in the past and by God’s grace get them back in the services. We have found a place to rent for the services and are trusting God to bring in the money. The cost is $200.00 a month which will be $2,400.00 for the year. It is a large place with two bathrooms. It is a second floor building on the main street of San Pancho. It is very visible and would be easily found. I am truly excited about this place and pray that the contract can be made soon. The mission has collected enough for the first month.

We will be using it also for the Institute classes offered here in San Pancho on Mondays. The classes on the south side of town will continue to be held there. We have learned that there will be a new family there. We will be starting classes in the next two weeks. Ben will be helping with some classes on choir and music in general. Our prayer is that as Ben is here more and more in the years to come our classes offered will grow and the student body will expand. Please pray with us that God would supply the need on all fronts and that His work here in Aguascalientes will prosper.

We are blessed to have been called of God and given the chance to serve this year here in San Francisco de los Romo, AGS. We have seen the blessings of God as well as the attacks of Satan this year and we are glad to give testimony that God has remained faithful to us and sustained us. We want to thank all of you for the part that you played in this great endeavor and trust that God has blessed and sustained you in His work. May God bless you in this new year and grant you open doors in His service and victory in His work.

FW: Prayer Letter


Dear Friends and Prayer-Partners                                                                                                                                                Aug. Sept. Oct.

     We truly have had a great summer full of travel, preaching, and the blessing of God on it all.  The reason for our travel was the annual-biannual board of directors meeting in our home church: Calvary Independent Baptist Church in Hungtingdon, PA, under the leadership of Dr. Thomas Coleman.  It was timed to coincide with the Mission’s conference there and what a blessing it was to be in our home church and see their heart for missions as they listened and became involved in the mission desires of the families represented there.  More and more it seems that I am the oldest at these events in time spent on the field as well as time spent on this earth.  I am not sure how I feel about that but the alternative isn’t too pleasant either.  Honestly, I am glad to see young families surrendering to the mission field and have hearts of sacrifice and service.  Our emphases is to involve the national in the work in their own country and in their own language.  However, this does not negate the intense need of the world to hear the Gospel nor the great opportunity we have as Americans to travel and preach around the world taking the knowledge God has favored us with to a world where Christ is not named in truth rightly dividing His word.God has blessed America for her churches and the missions heart they have felt and responded to all of these years.  Let’s remember that the purpose of the church is to glorify God, the mission of the church is to go into all the world, and the heart of the church is to build up the saints and to love one another.  Therefore, from the heart of a missionary let me say that much more could be done if the logistics of that mission was more adequate.  We are praying that the doors that seemingly are opening to us in Institute ministry, church ministry, and children’s ministry, will be fruitful and that the many adversaries that are confronting us will be conquered.  While in the states for these ministries we were able to be with some of you that have supported us for many years and we were extremely grateful for the love and concern.  Most of all we were blessed by those who knew exactly what had been going on in our lives and ministries and then said that they pray for us regularly with many saying that they pray every day for the Hendricks family and for TNTI Ministries.  What a blessing!
     The Misión Bautista Calvario that we have here in San Francisco where we live has a new family.  We are excited about this new family.  This couple has been saved many years and have a good knowledge of the Scriptures.  They come from the city of Aguascalientes but have a heart to help here in the ministry in San Francisco.  They are the family Gutiérrez.  Juan, Laura and the family are still faithful.  We have spoken to another family that came for a while and lately have not.  They tell us that they still want to come.  Satan has made it difficult for them and they really need to understand the great importance of being in church.  We are teaching through the Gospel of John on Sunday mornings.  So far it has been a real blessing in the church and we covet your prayers that the Word of God will teach, convict, and strengthen the brethren.  We are desperately  needing a different place to meet for the services and again we ask that you pray with us that God would enable us to rent a store-front building.  The difference that would be made in having the meeting apart from our home and property would be great.  New people have a little trepidation in coming to our home, many questions are posed by those who do not come along with some harassment,  and for those that do come it would give them a sense of it being their church and not Hermano Timo’s property.  
     Another reason that this is needed is that we are readying the property for Ben, Amanda, and family, to be here with us for six months beginning in December for Ben to learn Spanish.  They will be helping us here in the mission as well as in the Institute.  We are excited for them to be here and are looking forward to the help.  In preparation much work is being done here.  Please pray that God would supply the need for the property here as well as a new place for services.  
     Edgar, the pastor at Trinidad, is teaching Institue classes there this semester and in the next couple of weeks we will be starting classes again with Hermano Esteban Rosales on the south side of town.  I will be teaching Epistolas Pastorales there and ask that you pray for these lessons.  The church Trinidad is having a family conference next week and I will be heading up the music in the conference.  Pastor Edgar is also to be married on the first of December.  This is an exciting time for all here and we are blessed to be a part of God’s work.
     Teresia is still having some difficulty with her gall bladder but we want to praise the Lord for supplying what we need for the operation.  We have received a little more that the $2,000.00 needed and we are grateful.  Nothing her ever goes along with plans and always seems to be more expensive that estimated.  This has caused great relief to Teresia and I greatly appreciate all who gave and who prayed.  
     We do love you all and are grateful for all the prayers and support sent our way.  We ask that you remember us to the Lord and pray with us for the needs of the ministry and the Hendricks family while we labor here in Aguascalientes, Mexico.  We now have a facebook page; Taking Necessary Truths International Ministries.  Please take a look.  It is still in the building phase but I am trying to have a series of provocative meditations from time to time.  Our web page; <www.tnti.org> has redone the Current News button and I am told it makes it easier for phone and tablet users.  Thank you all again for your part in this great ministry.

Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Prayer-Partners                                                                                                                               April, May, June,  2012

I am preaching this morning on I Corinthians 15: 51-58, emphasizing “be stedfast, unmoveable”.  I desire to encourage those who come to be faithful in the work and to realize that God is in control and that our work is not in vain.  So many times, however, I find that the messages that God gives is for me and my family as much as anyone else. I thank God that He meets our spiritual, emotional, and health, needs through His word even while we attempt to help others with His word.  
The classes of the Bible Institute are winding down and this semester has been exceptional.  One class was on Eschatology and we spent a three-hour course study time frame. It was amazing as we saw the students absorbing the material and excited about the promises of God.  He has been faithful with His promises and will continue to be as we see the world falling in line with the prophecies of Scripture.  The other class is on Doctrine and we are teaching at this moment on the Doctrine of the church.  These classes are in two different churches and we ask that you pray that God would open other doors to teach and to train God’s children more profoundly the Word of God so that they will be able to continue growing in the knowledge of His will.  
The Calvary Mission is slow and we have seen a real battle in the community with those who desire to attend.  One family is stopped as they walk to church services and criticized for abandoning their Mexican heritage and changing “religion”.  Others are having troubles within their friend and family circles.  We are to have another real push into the community tomorrow with some young people coming in from Mexico City.  Pastor Malacara here in AGS is bringing them in and desires to help some of the smaller works in the state.  We are very grateful for his help with Pastor Edgar of the Trinity Baptist Church.  We have tracts and ‘John and Roman’ booklets to give out.  The young people will be bringing also a program for children to be used in the parks.  Please pray that the results will be eternal.  
Please pray for Teresia.  For more than a month she has been in pain and very uncomfortable.  We did not know the reason and kept moving forward in the things that we needed to do.  Her pain and discomfort has been mitigated by the presence of some of our grandchildren here to visit.  Two different groups have come to visit and we have found great joy in them being here.  However, Teresia did not seem to be able to improve.  So finally I convinced her to go to the doctor and see what was happening.  Between the two doctors we have been told she has the shingles, she is suffering with a kidney infection, she has an infection of the throat, and gall stones.  We thank the Lord that the greater majority of these are being treated and will soon be past.  However, the gall bladder is another story.  The doctor said that she will have to have it removed.  We are looking forward to a possible time frame of October or November.  The doctor said that the pain will persist until it is removed.  Here in Mexico the cost is about $2,000.00 dollars for the surgery.  This is much cheaper but requires the fully-invasive surgery of the past.  Or at least this is the information that we have at this time.  The less invasive surgery in the States will be more costly, much more.  However, we are going to investigate being a cash patient with some hospitals and the discounts that come sometimes with that status.  Please pray that God’s will and timing will be known.  We will need your help with this extra costs.  I ask that you consider helping to defer these costs wherever the surgery takes place.  
We will be having our Board of Directors meeting in September this year and the Lord has opened doors to speak in a few conferences while we are out of Mexico.  We are excited to share the Board the challenges and the blessings of TNTI Minitries and what we see as great doors of opportunity for the future.  Please pray for our travels in and out of Mexico as well as crossing the U.S. in the months of August and September.  
We truly are grateful to you who have remained faithful and to the Lord for His great goodness to us.  Thank you for your prayers and continued service to the Lord and His work.

Some of you received this letter yesterday but I tried to add some pictures and I did not know exactly how.  They were too big and to high definition I think.  Therefore some did not receive it.  It duplicated in your email box, I apologize.  May God bless you in your work for Him.

Jan – March, 2012
Greetings from Mexico and the Hendricks family. The Lord has been good in these last several months as we have seen some espiritual growth in the small group
We have in our mission.  Numerically we have suffered a little but still visit and work with the four families that have started attending with us.
God has begun to open many doors of opportunity here in the central part of the country of Mexico, and I believe that by His grace in our Lifetime we will see a great thrust for the cause of Christ and church-planting here in Aguascalientes and spreading throughout Mexico and all of the Spanish-speaking countries in the western hemisphere.    I am excited to be a part of this great work and trust you will stay on your knees before our Father on behalf of the Mexican people, the Hendricks familia and the ministry God has begun here in this important central region of Mexico.  
The Bible Institute, El Oasis, has, as I have stated, clases on two different nights in two different churches.  There are about 5 different churches represented.  This ministry is going extremely well and is very dear to my heart.  When I see the light of understanding spark in the eyes of these students I am thrilled that my God has given me this privilege and has entrusted to me His Word.  They are eager and have a great desire for knowledge and to know Him better.  My Dad attended Columbia Bible College in the 1940’s and often told me the motto of the school:  To know Him, and to make Him known.  This has always been a challenge to me and now I can see that same spirit in the lives and testimonies of the students that attend this Bible Institute.  May God grant us the honor of being amongst a people that have as their greatest accomplishment the truths of that motto. 
 
We are in some important growth crossroads at this point of our ministry and would ask that you would pray for us as we face these challenges.  We are in need of canvasing the town in which we live and would appreciate your prayers about the costs of this venture.  We have some tracts and I am printing the “Salvation of Man” series for distribution.  This is a series of Bible studies on salvation using several people in the Bible who accepted the Lord as their Savior.  We desire to buy the “Won by One” series of discipleship training with which to continue ministering to those who accept the Lord as Savior.  
We also greatly desire to rent a building for the services of “Misión Calvario”.   I have become aprehensive of printing my home address on the material and handing it out all over town.
The ministry in El Salvador has gotten in touch with me after talking to me while there that there is a real need of a van in Playa San Diego.  The need there is: 
Van  — $15,000.00  
Here
Printing  —  $250.00
Discilpleship  —  $200.00
Building  —  $150.00 to 
         $300.00 p/m
Thank you for your faithful prayers, support, and concern for the Hendricks.

December Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Supporters of Tim and Teresia Hendricks (TNTI Ministries)

¡FELIZ NAVIDAD!  We want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  So many of us recognize Him as our Savior and yet do not give Him His place of LORD in our lives.  What a shame!  We miss out on so many precious and sweet moments with Him that cannot be found outside of His will.  While it is Him who gives us the ability to ‘will’ and ‘do’ of His good pleasure we must respond to His unction to accomplish His will.  May we find in this Christmas season a renewed energy of surrender to Him.
I waited until now to write because last night we finished our Bible Institute classes.  We had 17 who took their test and finished the semester and we have about three who are coming regularly but basically to audit the classes.  We are thrilled with the result of the Institute this semester and pray that God will continue to grow this ministry.  Arturo Milchaus was a student but suffered a heart attach and could not return this semester as well as a lady who had to leave the city for several months.  Arturo is doing much better now and the lady has returned in the last few days.  
The families here in San Francisco where I live are struggling with attendance right now and we are working with them.  One family has not had steady work for several months  and have just begun a food preparation business.  The food (tripe) is typically sold and eaten on Sundays and this has taken them out of the time schedule.  We are praying.  Another has had extended family problems that has taken them into the city of Aguas on the weekends.  We continue to work with these families as well as others.  In February or March we are to make a thrust again into the town where we live with invitations and the Gospel message.  The funds necessary for this ministry is listed in our last prayer letter found on <www.tnti.org> under the current news button.  Please visit our web site and browse around a little, especially in the current news.  There we have available everything that we have written for several years.  Pray for us.  Donate as the Lord places us on your heart.
Remember that God has a plan for you and desires that you surrender to His plan.  I believe that every child of God should be able to give a reason why he or she is where they are, doing what they are doing, and planning the future they are planning.  Do you?  May God bless you and grant you peace in the very active and personally involved Grace of God that He extends to you daily.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

On this bright and beautiful day in Mexico I want to send a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.  I have been thinking today of the expression Happy Thanksgiving in Spanish.  Sometimes I think ideas are expressed beautiful in the Spanish language and may it will help us to understand the intent of our holiday.  Feliz día de Acción de Gracias is the way to say Happy Thanksgiving.  Translated literally it reads, “Happy day of action of thanks”.  While it is good to say thank you and give our thanks to the ones who mean a lot to us, I believe that the real meaning of thanksgiving has to do with action more than just words.  Do something today that says thank you to someone.  Psalm 100 must be read as a series of commands and not as mere suggestions to join in as we thank Him.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness:
Come before His presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord He is God:
It is He that hath made us
And not we ourselves; 
We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
(Action of thanks)
And into His courts with praise:
Be thankful unto Him, and praise His name.
For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; 
And His truth endureth to all generations.



May God bless you and yours on this Thanksgiving Day!!!

Prayer Letter November 2011

Dear Friends and Partners

Our prayer for you is that you are enjoying the blessing of God’s will in your life and ministry.  I was preaching in Misión Calvario yesterday from Romans 12:1,2.
While I was preaching I was struck with the word ‘agradable’.  In English the word translated there is ‘acceptable’.  It really means the same thing, of course, but the Spanish word also carries the meaning of ‘pleasing’.  The understanding is that after, and only after, the presentation of ourselves as a living sacrifice, God then makes His will good, perfect, and ‘pleasing’ to us.  The only way that we can enjoy the blessing of God’s will in our lives is to have surrendered to it first.
Speaking of Misión Calvario, we are still seeing God’s hand work.  As always in Mexico, faithfulness to services is not understood from the beginning.  It is really one of the hardest things we teach.  However, God has given to us four families that we are working with right now and we are glad. A new convert, a lady named Gabriela, was with us yesterday again and has really surprised me with her comments.  I was commented on the word ‘living’ sacrifice, emphasizing the truth that God does not want us to self-flagellate or go on hunger-strikes and things of that nature in order to serve him.  These practices are common here.  She commented with raised hand.  Does this mean also that  we should take care of our bodies to maintain the best health possible in order to serve Him?  I was shocked and very pleased at the insight here.  We really are needing a separate place to have our meetings.  Please pray with us about that.  The cost per month would be about $300.00 to $350.00 dollars per month.  I want to print some invitations also for the services as well as have a good Gospel presentation to give with the invitation.  This will cost about $250.00 for the invitations.  I want to use the Bible study series on the Salvation of Man that I have written to hand out.  This is about $500.00.  We want to be able to get the discipleship program; Won by One, which would be a better system than the one I am using.  There will be a cost with that also as far as start-up and then an on-going cost.  We are excited about what God has begun to do here in San Francisco de los Romo.  We ask that you pray that God will bring more to our services and grow this little body of believers.  
The Oasis Bible Institute is doing extremely well.  Our classes on Monday nights are deeply involved in the study of Eschatology.  We are using the book THINGS TO COME  by J. Dwight Pentecost.  It is proving to be challenging for the students but they are doing a great job.  We have incorporated quizzes, multi-page reports, tests, exams, and a final written project.  Please pray that they will remain strong.  In order to offer this book I had to translate a workbook into Spanish.  I finished that yesterday!!  Praise the Lord!!  Also a church on the south-side of town asked me to begin a separate institute class with them.  We began last Sunday the 6th of November.  We had 11 students on the first night.  We are teaching there BASIC THEOLOGY  by Emery H. Bancroft.  It is a book that I have taught before and so have the materials translated that I need.  I am truly excited about the growing number of students that God has given me to teach.  We now have students from 6 local churches here in the area.  Many of you who know me know that I have been burdened with training nationals for the work in order that they reach their own people, plant their own churches, and change their own country.  Years ago we tried to get something formal started and the Lord did not open the door.  I really don’t know what all the Lord is opening for us here, now, but I am pleased to have a little part in His work.  Pray that God would provide and open the doors necessary for His will to be done.  
As I reported in our last letter the church in El Salvador is doing very well.  The ministry with Pastor Nacho Caraveo I trust also is doing well.  I have not spoken with him in a few months.  I know that he is busy visiting churches with Institute style classes and pastoring his church in Paraiso, Veracruz.  
On a personal note you will notice that I have listed needs and costs possible more that usual.  I truly have attempted during our ministry here in Mexico to take care of many of these costs without asking for every penny needed.  However, our personal support has reached crucial levels.  The economic turn down has affected us as it has affected many of you.  We are not complaining but only making you aware of our condition and ask that you pray that the logistics of doing God’s will be supplied and accomplished.  I think of Nehemiah when he stood before the king.  When asked he supplied the king with a list of the things he was going to need to accomplish the task God had asked him to do.  He had prayed.  He had planned.  He then presented.  
        Thank you for taking the time of reading this report.  Our prayer is that God continue to bless you and your ministry according to His will.  May you experience a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving this year.

Trip to El Salvador

I just returned from El Salvador and had the great privilege of speaking in various churches while there.  The Lord was good and opened many doors with the good people of El Salvador and the churches that the Lord has raised up there.  I am amazed sometimes to find the Lord’s work so active and growing all around the world and to be able to actually see His hand is very encouraging.  The churches there have been very active over the last 30 years with the “Judea and Samaria” part of the great commission.  Also in November several of the churches there will be participation in an effort to reach out to the Curds of Kurdistan or wherever they may be found.  All of the churches that I was in that were older and mature had new works starting from their churches.  The new work that we had a hand in is doing very well.  I mentioned that I would be visiting them and it truly was a blessing.  The church is running about 80 every week and have purchased a property in a central part of the beach community.  It sounds very exotic and the area truly is beautiful but the people who live there are poor with a very meager living.  The most make about $20.00 a month living and taking care of someone else’s property.  The small building that they live in are humble but the members of the church there were happy, excited in the work of the Lord, and helping to fund the mission’s effort to the Curds as beast they can and more than their means.  PTL!  Pastor Adrian is doing a really good job teaching the people and God is working in their lives and ministry.
       Alex Martinez once again held down the fort here in San Francisco de los Romo as Tim was out.  He did a great job and we are appreciative.  He and His sister have grown up in the Trinity Baptist Church in AGS and are dedicated to the Lord’s work.  Our people have remained faithful and we are looking forward to tomorrow to be back in church with them here at the Misión Calvario meeting here at our home.  The Institute will begin again on the 12th of September.  We will be teaching Eschatology.  We will be using THINGS TO COME  by Pentecost as a text.  We are looking forward to having more students this semester as the Lord wills.
We truly are grateful to all you who constantly and consistently support TNTI Ministries and the Tim Hendricks family.  Please pray for us especially as in the month of August, which is for our September support, was 13 churches shy of a full month.  Some arrive late because of mail and some send every quarter and we know that but this is the first time that so many did not make it.  Some still have our old address.  Would you check in your folder on us and see if you have our new address:
TNTI Ministries
P.O. Box 81336
Simpsonville, SC  29680
Thank you very much for your attention on this.
I wanted to stop here a moment and let you know of the El Salvador trip and ask that you pray that God would continue to open doors, protect us here in Mexico, and give us the boldness that we need to do the work He has called us to.

Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Co-Laborers

Blessed be the name of the Lord for all of His benefits.  We are rejoicing in the Lord in all of the things that have been occurring with the Hendricks family and TNTI Ministries.  
On a family level we are thrilled to announce that Alisha and her husband Jonathon are expecting twins in February!!! We are excited and extremely blessed.  Alisha and Jonathon have not been able to have children in the first seven years of marriage and we have prayed with them for God’s grace to work in their lives.  Michael is celebrating a birthday today and Matthew will be on Friday.  
Joy Hendricks was caring for my parents for the last many years and since their passing has decided to come and work with us here.  As I have stated she is a pianist and vocalist and we are excited that she is here with us.  Yes!  she came down almost three weeks ago now and has already been a blessing in a Mission’s Conference as well as in Misión Calvario that we have here in San Francisco where we live.  So many of the people in several churches are excited with her being here because of our lack of knowledgeable and skilled teachers in Christian music.  She came down without gathering support and was blessed by gifts from her home church; Morningside Baptist Church in Greenville, SC, members of the church, and others who have desired to help.  She also sold her car to invest what she could in her new ministry and adventure.  Please pray the God would supply her needs as she desires to do His work and give her life for the spiritual needs of the  Mexican people.
As mentioned we just finished with a Mission’s Conference in the Mount Carmel Baptist Church on the south side of Aguascalientes.  It is a new work begun by a Mexican and has five families in the church.  A missionary to Venezuela was with us and I was the speaker for the week.  On Sunday morning our group loaded up in cars and went there.  I thank the Lord that the two families that are faithful with us went.  Rafael, his wife; Ana, and his daughter; Vanessa, have been saved and attending Calvario for about six weeks.  PTL!  On Thursday of last week I went to their home and they had invited their older daughter and her two children.  Yadira, the daughter, was saved.  AMEN!  She also, with her two children, went with us on Sunday morning.  Juan, Laura, and their five children were with us.  All together with Merritt and Teresia we took 15 people.  Our little room here on our property will fill up with 24.  Please pray that we will fill up soon and then look for a store front building to rent.  This is our goal and the families with us are seeing the vision of a church here in San Francisco.  
August 23rd I will be traveling to El Salvador to visit our brothers and sisters in Christ with whom we have worked in the past.  I will be there one week and will be in the new church in Playa San Diego, the church in San Vicente, and the church in San Miguel.  I am excited about this opportunity and ask that you pray for me as I travel.  I will be going with a group from Morningside Baptist.  I still need about $200.00 for expenses while there.  The airfare has been taken care of, PTL, and the tickets bought.  I will be flying out of Aguascalientes this time and the tickets were a bit more.  I have two stops with about 7 hours of layovers in all.  I actually will be in Miami for 5 hours.  
The Bible Institute will begin the second Monday of September.  Please pray the the 19 students that have shown interest will return and bring more with them.  I believe that the Lord has His hand on the Institute and we will see it grow into a major training place for students from around Aguas and very possible around all of Mexico.  We are beginning to see interest from many and again ask that you pray as this will require great amounts of time, money, and energy, as it kicks off.  All of which I seem to have to fight harder to have.  God is able!  We are in His hands.  
In December, 2012, Ben, Amanda, and my grandchildren, will be returning to Mexico for about 9 months.  Ben has a great desire to learn Spanish personally, and as a tool to reach the Spanish-speaking people of the United States as well as trips into Mexico.  His DVD presentation can be seen on <www.biblerevival.com> .  We are looking forward as the Lord allows he and Amanda to help in the music ministry here as well as the ministry of the preached Word.  
As you can see our schedule is full and we are happy to be being used in the Lord’s work here in Mexico.  Please pray for our safety and the Lord’s blessing on our lives and ministry.
In His Service
Tim and Teresia Hendricks
