Thank you for your faithful service to the Lord and for your desire to reach the Spanish-speaking people of the United States. Nehemiah was a man concerned for the Lord’s work and for His glory. He was enabled by the Lord to help awaken God’s people to the need all around them and lead them to labor together to get the job done. Duey Whitfield is such a man. He sees the distress of a people who have come to the US in search of a better life. He understands that their true need is to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Duey and Melissa Whitfield have been faithful members of Tabernacle for 13 years. They have displayed a true love for the Lord and for His work. After spending several years as an executive in the automotive industry with Continental AG the Lord called Duey to serve Him full time as missionary to Hispanic people in the United States. The Lord has burdened the hearts of the Whitfield family to partner together with local churches to help them reach their Hispanic community.
Since 2003 the Lord has used them to help five churches establish Spanish-speaking ministries here in the States. Duey has also been used of the Lord to assist the pastors in each community where he has served. I have received several reports from those who have been blessed and strengthened as a result of their ministry. With a clear understanding of the importance of the local church the Whitfields seek to help pastors and people carry out the work the Lord has given them to do in their Jerusalem. As you pray concerning the need to reach your Hispanic community I encourage you to consider having the Whitfields come to your church. They will be a help to you and your people.
