Tornado Rips through Guatemala
We have often referred to Blane Anderson as “the Oklahoma Tornado.” He is more than a whirlwind where ever he goes.
Earlier this year, he spent more than a month in Guatemala recruiting and teaching WEI students and studying Spanish. Mind you, he is no “spring chicken.” He retired from Oklahoma Christian University two or three years ago, but he has been a rip-roaring traveling missionary ever since.
While in Guatemala, Blane met with Dr. Lisa Denham and her husband Kemmel who have been medical missionaries in Guatemala for fourteen years. Blane says, “I shared with them information about the WEI ministry, and they were eager to help me recruit students. Their efforts paid off significantly, as over 10 students signed up.”
Next, Blane worshiped with the church in Santa Cruz del Quiche before studying Spanish for a week in Panajachel. Then, he spent a few days in Antigua Guatemala, the site of an active volcano. From there he went to Guatemala City and taught WEI students for twenty-two days.
During a long federal holiday in Guatemala, Blane’s wife Terry was able to join him for a few days of teaching and sightseeing.
Blane writes, “I had an opportunity to spend a morning on the campus of Guatemala’s largest public university, San Carlos. During my time there, I distributed over 300 invitations to become a WEI student, and I was able to speak with several students who had questions. This effort resulted in two or three new contacts.”
We just learned that Blane plans to spend time with Zane Copeland in Mongolia. With Blane and Zane, both from Oklahoma, there’s apt to be a category 5 tornado in Mongolia this summer.
HAVE YOU CONSIDERED INCLUDING WEI IN YOUR WILL?
By naming WEI in your estate, you will accomplish two important things:
1. You will lay up treasures in heaven; and,
2. You will help others get to heaven, too.
