Good News About Reaching the Lost - Jorge Pineda

Dear Brethren,

Thank you for your prayers and vision for the world mission work. I just want to share with you some of the things that are happening with my radio program in South Florida and Cuba. But, first I want to thank World Radio Broadcasters for their support given to my radio program. I also want to thank Tony in Cuba who help us with the radio contacts over there and Rex Morgan for his invitation to join him in this radio adventure. And mainly, thanks to my God who made possible the impossible.

This coming week, I am going to Cuba to teach a seminar organized by the Atlantic International Bible Institute located in Miami, Florida (Branch of Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, Texas), and second, to follow up the progress of our radio program over there. The good news is that the radio programs, already recorded in CDs, are going to be used as an evangelistic tool to reach the lost in the Country. Just below this message, you have some of the e-mails I have received from several radio listeners this month. I am so sorry they are in Spanish, but I am sure some of you will find the way to translate it.

Memorial - Bradford Hull Morris

We received word in the mail Monday that Bradford Hull Morris died on March 27, 2008 from complications of Multiple Sclerosis. He graduated from SSOP in January 1979, from the Graduate Studies in January of 1980 and from the India Studies in January of 1981. The family asked for memory donations be sent to SIBI or to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The family wrote this:

Dear Sunset family,
It is with mixed emotions: sadness and thankfulness that we share the passing of Bradford. We are sad as we miss his smile, his sense of humor, his spiritual mentoring, and his knowledge of God’s word. We are also extremely thankful that he has reached his heart filled goal, Victory in Jesus.
Bradford, an alumni of Sunset School of Preaching, cherished his days at the school We trust there are still faculty there that are friends of his. Please share this information with them.
May God continue to bless each and every one of you as you continue to share the gospel around the world.
The family of Bradford Morris

The obituary and note will be placed in the “In Memoriam” book in the Heritage Hall.



Greetings from UBI in Ukraine

Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus.

It is so great to be teaching and preaching in Ukraine again! What a treat it has been to renew past relationships and meet the multitude of new Christians and new co-workers in the Kingdom here. I am teaching Revelation and Church Planting/Evangelism while here and find the students as aggressive and eager to learn and apply what they are learning as ever. What a joy to teach to evangelism to a group of students who actively evangelize every day - I will probably learn more from them than they do from me. Our current student body here reminds me of the days when we lived here. It's also been a joy to see former students teaching classes and ministering here. Wow.

Sunday I preached in a small congregation a couple of hours (by bus) from Donetsk. It is in New Gregory in the Dniper region. What a joy it was to meet with these saints! We were joined by a local orphanage which added much to our experience there.

"The farmer sows the word …"
(Mark 4:14)

Dear Family in Christ …

Hello once again from God's fields in the little country of Estonia. You are in our thoughts and prayers often. We thank Him for those of you who continue to remember us—two farmers sowing His word in this place while you sow His word where you live.


"As you go... make disciples" - Report from Tobey and Kathy Huff

Dear Brethren, Family and Friends

Si Na Bula (Good Morning) from Fiji

Many of will note that in my newsletters since we have been here I mention golf and the playing of such (if you call it that) on a regular basis. I am not good at it and the Lord has certainly shown me that I will never make a living at it. The recreation options are very very limited here and forget about socializing after dark. It seems that maybe some of you might have taken this to mean that playing golf is all I do over here and that while you are slaving away making a living I am asking you to support me for a life of recreation.

This was a (constructive) comment I received which brought this to my attention: "I think your continual mention of the golf games is a negative to, perhaps, many of your present and would-be supporters. I think they view it as they would here in the USA as being a fairly expensive recreational activity for someone who is always asking for more money. I refrained from mentioning this, but after one of our own leaders made such a remark to me I thought that perhaps the time had come to mention it to you." I am sorry if some of you have come to that conclusion.

Sammy Flanary's Travel Report

Dear Fellow-workers,

I have now been back in Lubbock one week. I am trying to catch up after one month of labor in Greece. The report will give a capsule. Know that I am thinking about you.

God really opened some doors. Those opportunities may require me to return before long to complete some teaching that I began, especially, with the Nigerian charismatic church.

Hope that you will enjoy the report and praise God for it.

Sammy Flanary
