Monthly Archives: January 2012
Saturday we will hop in our van and start one of our busiest stretches of deputation yet. We’ll be in at least 18 churches and 11 states during the month of February (that is an average of over 4 per week!), travelling around 4-5 thousand miles, preaching, presenting our burden for Colombia, meeting fellow believers, and hopefully establishing new partnerships that will get us even closer to reaching Colombia. Here is a map to give you an idea of the travelling we’ll be doing:
Thank you so much for your prayers. I’ll be honest, deputation has been one of the best times of our lives. We have enjoyed seeing our beautiful country, spending time with each other as a family, getting to preach all over the place, and seeing God do mighty things in our lives. I can honestly say, it has been awesome!
I have been taking a little break from posting on the blog lately but more updates will be coming soon! Thanks so much for keeping up to date with us and for your prayers.

Dear Pastors, Friends and Family,
Deputation & Family Update
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! The past couple months have been a whirlwind of traveling, preaching, sharing our burden for Colombia and seeing God do miracles. We’ve seen people saved through personal soul winning and in church services, and we’ve seen major financial needs met by God’s mighty providence. He is GOOD!
We’ve now traveled a total of over 31,000 miles and have gained several new supporters recently, even three this past week! Praise God. If you haven’t joined our team of financial partners we’d love to be your missionaries to Colombia! Millions have still never heard. Will you help us get there? By the way, if you haven’t seen our ministry video yet, check it out on our website: www.bemagnified.org or contact me and I can mail you a DVD copy.
We had asked prayer for Hells Gates, a program our home church did during October. It was incredible! 3,500 people walked through a reality drama of the end times, and over 400 came to know Christ as their Savior! We also participated in two conferences that promote missions in which many gave their lives for full time Christian service. I love this stuff!
Our pregnancy is going well, and the doctor just informed us last week that we’re having another GIRL! I’m quickly being outnumbered, but we thank Christ for entrusting us with another little child to raise.
Out Of The Mouth Of Babes
Amira, who is now 21 months old, absolutely loves to sing. She gets a couple of things mixed up but it sure is cute! We frequently hear her joyfully sing: “I.B.I.B.I.B…book and me… BIBLE!” or, another favorite: “Jesus loves me, little star, how I wonder, up above Jesus.”☺
Colombian Culture Corner
If you ever want to say “God bless you” to a Spanish-speaking person, just say, “Que Dios le bendiga.” (Pronounced: kay dee-OHS lay ben-DEE-gah)
1. Aubrie’s pregnancy – Baby girl due on May 24th
2. That we would be a blessing to churches as we travel & present our ministry
3. The 44,000,000 Colombian people who have never heard the Gospel!
4. Financial Support (now at about 20%)
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We love you and pray for you often.
Servants of the King,
Aaron, Aubrie, Amira (& Baby) Vance
