For a no-where-close-to-fluent Spanish speaker, one of the challenges to finding good biblical articles in Española is being able to understand what you’re reading before you print it out and pass it along to others. Other than using Google-translate (which has its flaws) or having an actual translator near-by (which is not readily available in my case) there aren’t a lot of options that I have been able to find … until now.

Brotherhood News is offline at the moment. Matt is working on it. It’s the last to get transferred to the new hosting service, and there appear to be some issues with the transfer.
Other sites have been transferred already and are up. Forthright Press has to be redone, with the shopping area added a second time. That doesn’t get transferred automatically.
In other news, The Missus and I fly home to Brazil on Thursday, arriving, Lord willing, Friday morning sometime. It’s been a good visit with friends, family, and supporters. A positive thing about travel also is returning home, sleeping in one’s own bed, and returning to one’s own routine.
Many of the Forthright/GoSpeak sites are being transferred to a new host server: Forthright.net, believingprayer.com, brotherhoodnews.com, and others, including my personal site. Such transfers are always a bit messy, so bear with us.
We hope two problems will be solved with this change: (1) Entire IPs should not be blocked any longer, so more people will have access to the site; (2) Search engines will have it easier indexing our sites.
This should encourage many of our Australian and Asian friends.
Our thanks to Matt Clifton for his help in this.
Over on my blog I asked two questions that might also be appropriate here:
1. On what site do you spend most of your time?
2. What is your favorite website?
The two will not necessarily be the same answer, I understand.
The page listing brother Howard’s radio broadcasts at http://www.vehoward.net (a subsection of the Old Paths Archive) had so much material on it that it loaded very slowly, even with a fast Internet connection.
This problem has now been solved by listing the main topics only on that page, with links to 103 sub-pages that actually play the lessons.
I urge you to make good use of this material, both for your own instruction and to help others with whom you are studying.
Brother Howard baptized more than 8000 people during his lifetime because of his ability to make what the Bible teaches about difficult topics extremely clear. Doctrinal error prevents many people from becoming Christians, thus error must be refuted before they can accept the truth.
Please examine the topics of his broadcasts and keep them in mind for use in the future.
Listen to some of the lessons that interest you so you can experience the quality of the material.
Even with the slow loading, there were 15,309 visits to vehoward.net during the last year. With the improved access, hopefully even more will benefit from these powerful lessons.
You might inform people in your congregation about these lessons via the bulletin or a bulletin board. May the Lord bless you.
Thanks to all who have opened, read and clicked on the links of this newsletter for the last year or so. Some of you have subscribed–hope more will do so– please take time to pray first for the outreach, then share this with others you have contact with. I am getting about a 30% open rate– I am told that this is real good.
