Keeping up with the Zones

(The Time Zones, that is!)

Our last in-person team meeting before COVID.

Our LAC Leadership Team (Latin America / Caribbean) continues to meet online at least twice a month.

– Are we meeting now, or in two hours? Oh, your country had a time change? Ours didn't. Please send me the link!

Roger translates from English to Spanish, Spanish to English to make back-to-back meetings go smoothly and not take up the entire day. The meetings aren't without bumps but it is amiable as the leaders in the Latin America and Caribbean Team work together enthusiastically. God is answering our continual prayers for oneness in spirit in this highly motivated, God-driven and prayerful bunch of men who would like nothing more than a full out Gospel invasion of Latin America. But they have to take it slowly. They have to Zoom, plan, and work through unbelievable logistics to meet couples where they are. God is blessing!

In October we had our first Champions Conference for Latin America. (FamilyLife Champions are Key Couples that are passionate about ministering to marriages and families in their own communities.) Ron Deal from FamilyLife Blended was our keynote speaker, with Roger doing simultaneous translation. Blended family ministry is sorely lacking in Latin America, so Ron's teaching – approaching blended families with God's grace to restore broken people in difficult circumstances, and to redeem the next generation (their children) by giving them godly examples of biblical family relationships – was a call to action that touched many hearts.

Preparing for Marriage

Roger coordinated the Spanish translation of this resource, and is in the final stages of preparing it for publication. This is FamilyLife's first digital-only major publication in Spanish.

To ensure our translations have international acceptance, Roger always has international cooperation: the translator, proofreader, and editor all from different countries. On this project, we actually had five countries!


For Prayer:

  1. Pray for oneness in the team: "That they may all be one…so that the world may believe that You have sent Me." John 17:21
  2. Pray that the digital platform for materials will be easily accessible in all countries.
  3. Pray for our continued health and stamina.
  4. Pray for God's providence for our financial support. We expect a shortfall of about $6000 this year.

With deep gratitude,
Roger and Laura Dye
