  Even with a worldwide pandemic, WOL was able to have 7 weeks of camps on the property & 5 satellite camps between July 5th & August 22nd,with no COVID related illnesses!  Lynette was the "official photographer" for the satellite camps, along with teaching English a couple of weeks on the camp property & helping with cleaning on the housekeeping team one week. She was able to make "summary" videos of each camp week, which the campers really enjoyed seeing.  They had a total of 990 campers, 186 salvation decisions & 147 campers dedicate their lives to the Lord.  Hungary closed its borders to all non-Hungarian citizens beginning 9/1, but as of 9/16, all the WOL students & staff were granted special permission to enter the country.  Lynette has experienced health problems over the summer & came home around Nov 20th.  She continues to see doctors and have tests.  Please pray for wisdom for the doctors and an accurate diagnosis.

We cannot attend church in person but we are grateful we can attend services via Zoom.  ITEMS FOR PRAYER:
There is still a high rate of new Covid-19 cases, so we continue to pray for our students to remain healthy for the rest of the school year. During the lockdown many of our parents were not able to pay school fees. Pray that the Lord would provide the necessary funds to cover this deficit

Mike and Sharon Keller in Utah 

Baptist Mid Missions

1816 W 761 S 

Vineyard UT 84659 


Annual  Support $1479  Mike and Sharon serve the Mormon community at Utah State University. In their most recent letter Sharon speaks of Rebecca a Mormon student she befriends and teaches of God's word. Rebecca like most students the first couple of times she passed their table didn't acknowledge the Kellers or the goodies on their table. Eventually she approached the table with a lot of questions. Sharon connected with Rebecca and the developed a relationship, so much so that when Rebecca left for her Mormon Mission trip of 18 months, she listed the Kellers on her list of family able to write her while she was gone. Upon return Rebecca met Sharon at their home and continued to ask questions and dug deeper into the Christian faith. Sharon says it will take time, like with all of the Mormon students, but she is very blessed by the relationship they have developed.
