I am sorry if I am a little late with this prayer letter. November and December have been very busy with the move from Guadalajara to San Luis Potosi. It is partly because of your faithfulness that I feel confident in the will of God to take this big step forward with the church planting here in Mexico. I am not quite sure how I will fit in with Dr. Ramos and the church-planting teams here yet, but there seems to be much more potential here and resources to make a much greater impact on Mexico. I would be very grateful for your prayers for wisdom in the adjustment.
I will be making a trip in the middle of January to the state of Vera Cruz to help a new church there. The team I will be with will spend six weeks in that place. The plan is to spend six to seven hours a day in knocking new doors, soul winning, and discipleship. We hope to be an encouragement to this pastor and, by the grace of God, see many new families added to this church. I have not traveled much in Mexico, and the conditions here are very different than in the United States, so I would be grateful for your prayers regarding the adjustment and my effectiveness.
By the grace of God, I have still been winning souls every day. I have had the privilege of visiting four new church plants in November. I will also be spending this coming weekend in the state of Michoacan to help a pastor there who is pastoring two new churches. It has been wonderful not to be working all alone. Two of those involved in the church-planting teams have been accompanying me. They have also been a big help with the move.
We hope soon to visit a small town in the state of Mexico to investigate the possibility of starting a church there. A family in that locality contacted me, asking for help to that end. We certainly would appreciate your prayers also for this endeavor.
“. . . The harvest truly is plenteous . . . .” (Matthew 9:37) These were the words of our Saviour, and they are still echoing down through the centuries here in Mexico today. I feel so greatly blessed to be here at this point in history and to be a part of what God is doing here! I am so deeply grateful to be able to represent you in this way.
Yours for souls,
