In keeping with. Mr. GTA's intent and direction, notice has been given to the French, German and Spanish regions to translate the Systematic Theology Project as rapidly as possible. The uniform high standard and quality of the original presentation will be preserved by ordering the binder and sub-section headings for all areas at one time, once the translations are completed.

The Spanish Work has announced a series of ministerial moves to take place over the first six months of 1978. Tom Turk, his wife Jody, and daughter Tamera, have been granted a visa which enables them to move all their household furnishings into a home in Mexico City, duty free. Tom will pastor the Mexico City Church of 96, and manage the local office and its staff. It will also be necessary for Tom to cover the territory from Guadalajara, where Alfredo Mercado, a local elder, ministers to a church of 48 members and prospective, to Vera Cruz, Chiapas, Tabasco and Yucatan—approximately one-fourth of Mexico.

Robert Flores II, who was ordained a local elder at the ministerial conference, and his wife Dorothy, are moving to Monterrey, Mexico to minister to the Northeast section of Mexico from Tampico on the Gulf of Mexico to Ciudad Juarez near the Texas border at El Paso. Bob will be assisted by Al Sousa, a ministerial trainee, in covering this territory which is approximately one-third of Mexico. They will recommend establishment of appropriate Bible studies to minister to and feed the members and prospective of the area.

Pablo Gonzalez has been granted a permanent working visa for Colombia and will be moving to Bogota this summer to pastor the congregation of 104 in that city. He will also conduct Bible studies in Cali, Medellin and Barranquilla, Colombia and travel to Caracas and Barquisimeto, Venezuela where there are growing Bible studies.

Mario Seiglie and his wife, Catalina, are currently serving in the San Diego and Escondido Churches assisting James Friddle. Mario also holds Bible studies in Tijuana and Mexicali, Mexico twice a month. They will be moving to an area of Central America later this spring.
