Pray with us for Western Mexico
OPERATION COMPASSION 2021:
What a great success. 1,500 backpacks were given away in
Cibuta, Nogales, San Ignacio, Magdalena De Kino, Benjamin Hill, and San Luis.
You made a lot of kids very happy this year, but also many people heard the
Gospel presentation and 20 made professions of faith, Glory!!! Everyone was
also sent home with a gospel coloring book, John/Roman, and tract in the
Backpack. Every adult was given a New testament. On a sad note, we ran out of
backpacks in Nogales and had to turn some children away. Next year we are
praying for 2,500 Backpacks. Click here to watch video https://handsacrossborder.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=02fcef163eac7d543ffe2fba3&id=fb44284bd2&e=41ae6fdff6
CITY OF REFUGE:
We are excited to begin work again in the next week at
the orphanage. We have enough to finish the structure and are praying for the
funds for the roof. The building is 50x80 and the supplies have gone up during
this time as I am sure you are aware of. The roof will be concrete so we can
put a second floor on in the future. The cost of the supplies is approximately
$16,000.00. We are praising the Lord we have received $5000 so far. Please keep
this matter in prayer we would sure appreciate it.
God blessed as 7 people from the mission in San Ignacio
went out door to door witnessing to the locals. Every house received a New
Testament, the Gospel, and an invite to the operation compassion at the
mission. Over 200 showed up in a town of 500. Glory!!! The following week we
had several return visitors. We are averaging between 25-30 weekly. God is
really blessing here thanks to your help.
Delivered to Mexico and beyond from November 1, 2020-
October 31, 2021, is 4,3 million pieces of Scripture. Can you say Glory!!!
During these turbulent times we must stay focused on the main thing of getting
the Gospel out to as many as possible. We have been promised Scripture from
many printing ministries for this year and are looking forward to seeing what
God can do thru all of us. Like my friend Keith Davidson says many hands make
this happen. Thank you.
ODDS AND ENDS:
It has been pretty calm here the last couple of months
and we thank the Lord for that. I want you to know we are praying for you and
that your New Year will be prosperous in the Lord’s work. Don’t let the world
get you down we have a better home waiting. Thanks again for your encouragement
and prayers. May the Lord truly bless you and your family.
