It was a great day in the Lord! Tonyia and I found a house, and we were part of a very successful Kid’s event.
The house is a brand new two bedroom, next door to Jesse and Chuy’s house. The rent is very, very reasonable by US standards. In the process we found another huge house and compound that would be a perfect facility for our future ministry. It covers an entire block with trees and a high fence.
We could have a safe place where children could come in a Christian environment. There are no Girl’s and Boy’s Club or anything similar here. Plus, it would make a great conference center for pastor and elder education – also part of our vision. We are talking with the owner and praying for the Lord’s guidance.
We invited all the children in La Laguna a small community outside Galeana to come to a community center for fun and hot dogs. Over 120 showed up and danced and sang Christian songs with our clown (Karen in her clown outfit). To pull this off we were working with missionary Jesse Rowe, Chuy and Karen and about five other area pastors.
It was great to see the adults from these various congregations work together to give the kids a day they will always remember. Laughter, singing and dancing for the Lord filled the room. I gave them a short word about God’s love, Tonyia signed to a Spanish song and Chuy preached. Many gave their hearts to “Cristo.” Each child got a Christian tract and candy.
We are looking forward to tomorrow as we will go deep into the mountains to a remote church where few outsiders visit. Thank you for your prayers, and please lift us up in your prayer time tomorrow.
