Edward and Flossie Abbott III have been with IGM since 1984 and have been serving in Mexico since 1968. They raised eight children there, seven married Mexicans, and are active in the Lord’s work. Edward started a three-year Bible Institute for village young people. Several grads are now teaching in other schools throughout Mexico, teaching the courses Edward taught them. He also wrote many years of Sunday School material and Vacation Bible School material. Then, in 1985, he became a favorite teacher on a Video Bible School that went into all Spanish-speaking countries. After retiring from the Bible Institute in 1998, they traveled together, helping in conferences.
On November 22, 2015, with his family surrounding him, Edward Abbott III went Home to be with the Lord he loved and served for so many years.
