[R] predict() without generating the model within R

Is there a predict method/syntax which I could use to generate
predictions (and other output from predict() methods) if I have the
model parameter estimates from a training dataset but not the data used
to generate the original model (the models were generated by a
collaborator using STATA and for IRB reasons I am not allowed
independent access to the original data)?  I have the new/testing data
upon which I wish to base my predictions.


PS-yes, I know that if my collaborator just used R, he could send me
just the model as an Rdata object.  That is not going to happen in this
