Latest update from Pate Ministries:

Hey friends,

Many of you are familiar with the backpacks we give to the children each year in our Bible clubs. It was filled with school supplies, hygiene products and a Spanish Bible. The backpack contained everything they needed to go back to school. 

In many of the villages where we work there are no stores for the families to buy the needed school supplies so the backpacks were a great tangible way to show the love of Christ and an amazing gift to the families. Many of you have had a part in this.

We normally put a a full Spanish Bible in the back pack, but this past year we decided to put a story book Bible in the backpacks. These Bible story books were more on the children’s level of understanding. Even the youth were reading them several times over.

Here is a recent video and testimony from a child who received a Backpack with the Bible story Bible.
I hope you enjoy this video testimonial.  Please feel free to share.

Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you.

For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
