GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD;
HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I have been waiting for an opportunity to make a quick video, but we have been so busy the past couple of weeks that I'd rather send you an update now then wait another week while I finish up a couple more things.
This month I had the honor of speaking at a Christmas "Posada" (traditional Christmas service in Mexico). As I was studying, I was reminded how much of an impact Jesus' birth had in the world. In very recent history, 9/11 changed our lives as far as travel and COVID changed our way of personal interaction among other things. But, the event that brought the greatest impact the world has ever seen was the birth of Jesus. It changed our calendars, Jesus made a New Covenant with Man, and if we allow Him, He will radically change our personal lives for the good.
We pray this Christmas season was a great blessing to all of you. As we walk forward in time with this new year, may the Lord continue to guide you in all you do. John wrote in one of his letters, "I wish above all things that (you) prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 2).
Below are a couple of videos of some of our activities...
Instead of the Christmas shoe boxes that we have had come through in past years, we decided to do our own thing and give each child a backpack stuffed with toys and useful items. Thank you for partnering with this ministry to make this possible!
The preparation is almost finished with the Verdin Carrillo House Build sponsored by The Well Church from Salt Lake City, Utah.
The team from Las Varas will be visiting us on 9th as they lead worship. Pray for safety in travels and good health.
The finishing up of the House Build this month. Diego is doing an excellent job and is very motivated. He has stepped up really well taking ownership of this ministry.
Wisdom for the team at Renuevo United Church in Tepic as the pastors step down for rest and renewal. The leaders that Pastors Jimmy and Perla raised up will be continuing to minister.
Wisdom as we encounter different opportunities for various types of counseling.
Wisdom as we move forward with our own non-profit organization in the states.
Good health for all as COVID cases rise in Mexico and in the states.
Continued prayer for those with whom we've been ministering to in general, pray for...
...a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the true knowledge of God for all the believers here. So the eyes of our understanding would be enlightened that we may know the hope of our calling, the riches of His inheritance in us, His immeasurable power in us, and the supremacy of Christ's authority over all things. (Eph 1)
...the ability to entrust to reliable and faithful believers the things we have learned so they will be capable and qualified to teach others as we Raise Up Leaders in Rural Mexico. (2 Tim 2)
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever!
WE LOVE YOU ALL!!
Thank you so much for being part of our team as we work together to RAISE UP LEADERS IN RURAL MEXICO!!!!
