Dear Friends Near and Far,

Dave & JoseHello from Dallas, Texas! Thank you for praying—in May God miraculously provided the remaining support that we needed, bringing us up to 100%! His timing was perfect, as always. José has been working full time for three months now! He provides computer support to colleagues who work in the Americas. We feel honored to be part of supporting Bible translation. It’s an enormous task and we get to be part of it! You too!

It’s great to be at this hub here in Dallas as it is the best place for us to be located in order to serve the entire Americas Area staff. José and I desire to have the greatest impact possible for millions of people who have no access to God’s Word in their own language. We are excited about what God has in store for our family, our ministry and the overall Bible translation movement. For the first time in history there are more Bible translation projects in progress than the number still remaining. The task is still overwhelming in human terms, but we serve a God “who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, …to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20.

Another New Testament has been completed in Peru! After years and years of set-backs and hard work, the NT is now in the hands of the Culina. The completion of a NT is a huge deal. A big celebration took place in the village in July. Culinas dressed in traditional clothing and adornments, they sang and danced as boxes of NTs were opened and distributed. Praise God!



We are overwhelmed with thankfulness for your prayers for our baby’s arrival. We look at her and cannot believe that God has entrusted us with another little life; what a privilege and huge responsibility! Ruthie Elena Chambilla was born March 25th at 8:04 in the morning and weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces. She had mild jaundice but after a day under the special lights she was fine to come home. The weeks since her birth have flown by. We’re all enjoying little Ruthie so much!

We have loved watching the changing of seasons here in the US. Spring-time was beautiful—seeing the leaves on trees appear and the different shades of green all over remind me that God restores and brings new life. And summer-time in Texas? Well…let’s just say that we’re loving our air-conditioning!

Again, we thank you for your friendship, prayers and support.

We send our love,

José and Lisa

Dear Friends,

We are overjoyed to be able to tell you that we have reached 100% of our monthly financial partnership need! God has provided miraculously in a short amount of time; just two days ago we still needed nearly $700 per month. We can hardly believe it!

Our faith has been strengthened, seeing God’s people wanting to have a tangible part in Bible translation. This has been such an exciting time for us as we have trusted in God and have seen Him provide. So many of you have been praying for this need and we thank you for your prayers and your encouragement! We are grateful for your part in this work and feel so blessed to share it with you.

José leaves Monday morning for the conference in LA, and we are full of praise to the Lord that he will be able to take his place on the team as soon as he returns. We will send more details later but just wanted to let you know how God has answered our prayers above and beyond anything we could have imagined. To Him be all the glory for ever and ever!

For the Bibleless,

José and Lisa Chambilla

Dallas, May 7, 2015

Dear Friends,

Wonderful news and an important deadline:

It gives us great joy to announce that new financial partners have joined our partnership team and the amount needed to complete our monthly ministry budget is now reduced to $639/month. We praise God for this wonderful blessing!
As you may remember from our previous newsletter, we must have our entire ministry budget pledged before Wycliffe will release us to begin our new assignment here in Dallas. We were given a deadline of May 16 to develop our partnership team. José will be attending a training conference in Los Angeles this coming week, May 11-15, and our hope is that he would be able to begin working immediately after that. The needs are great, and if we must delay further, it will make things difficult for many. We would like to report to our administration that they can count on José to join them in the work by the May 16 deadline.

What you can do:

• Pray that the additional $639 will be promised for the monthly budget by May 16. The Lord can do abundantly more than we can think or ask! Pray that God will call the people He desires to be partners with us in reaching this goal.

• Very important! If God lays it on your heart to become a financial partner, please let us know immediately by phone at 616-502-7254 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can inform our supervisor that the financial gap is being closed.

We appreciate you so much and thank you for considering this opportunity. Please join us in prayer for our remaining need, and we will keep you informed as God acts on our behalf.

For the Bibleless,

José and Lisa Chambilla

Dear Friends,

 

We’d like to thank every one of you who prayed for a safe delivery. Your prayers have been answered! God has given us such an overwhelming sense of His peace and we’re all in good spirits.

We are happy to announce the arrival of our little Ruthie. She is healthy and Lisa is recovering from the C-section.

Ruthie was born today March 25, 2015 at 8:04 am weighing 8 pounds 4 ounces and 20 ½ inches long. She has a lot of dark hair.

Laura and Sammy came to the hospital to visit their little sister and they were happy to meet her!

We love you all,

Lisa & José

March, 2015

Dear Friends,

Hello from Dallas. If all goes as planned, our baby girl will be delivered by C-section this coming Wednesday, the 25th at 7:30 in the morning! It has not been an easy pregnancy and we are so ready to meet her. Please pray:

• That our obstetrician, Dr. Mindy, will do a thorough job and for wisdom if she’s faced with decisions.
• For me, Lisa, that I’ll be strong, be able to rest at the clinic, and that I won’t get a blood clot in my leg like I did last time I was hospitalized. That we will be a testimony of God’s love to the staff at the clinic.
• That our baby will be healthy and strong as she enters the world. For Laura and Sammy as they stay home. A good friend whom they love will stay with them. They’re so excited to have a baby sister.
• For José as he cares for all of us and sees to many details.

We know that many of you are praying for the support we’re lacking. The last time that we reported, we were lacking $1,000 per month. We are amazed by how God is answering prayer and raising up new partners – like the small church in the middle of Michigan that barely knows us! We are so encouraged by the wonderful partners in ministry that God has given us. Despite having to increase our budget a couple of weeks ago in order to include our new baby, we’re currently short only $700 per month. We’re getting there!

The last week of February José was able to participate in meetings with the Americas Area staff and leadership. They went ahead with the meetings even through the ice storm that shut down most of Dallas for two days! Each evening he came home excited about all that is going on in the Americas. He loved catching up with colleagues from Peru and other areas of the world, and he is anxious to be able to help with computer support again once he can begin working full-time again.

We love you all and frequently think of and pray for you.

Lisa & José
