Update on Solar Players Phase III Deliveries – Over the past 12 months funds have been collected, lessons have been translated, SD cards have been loaded. Now it is time for thanksgiving to God. Last year a few deliveries were made, but most of the 3,000 Solar Players for Phase III will be delivered in the next few months. While we are still receiving the remainder of the $1,500,000 needed for completion of the project, enough has been received that many of the trips are already scheduled. At this point, plans have been made to deliver the remaining Spanish Solar Players to 13 countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. Through these trips, God will be praised and thanksgiving will be made for the Word of God.
Two of those trips are already underway with 200 Solar Players going to Mexico City and 160 going to Honduras. Those in Mexico City will be used by missionaries to distribute to churches and help equip members with the over 400 hours of biblical training that is available. The deliveries in Honduras will be in partnership with Mission Upreach and the Baxter Institute. Last year Richard Baggett spoke to a group of Baxter Institute alumni at an annual meeting to see what kind of interest these preachers would have in using this ministry training tool. He returned with pages and pages of names from ministers already working around the country in need of this tool to help them grow churches and develop stronger leaders.
Looking to the Future – Even as Phase III in Spanish continues in full force, steps are beginning to provide the same training material for other languages. In response to the refugees that continue to pour into Europe, work has begun to translate material and provide training in Arabic. These Arabic Solar Players will be supplied to churches in Greece and Germany that are working with refugees and converting Muslims to Christianity. Work has also begun to translate all of the Sunset courses into French. This will mean that an additional 220 million French speakers will be able to learn the Word of God and grow as leaders in Christ. This will enable Sunset to go to the 40% of Africa that speaks French.
