Thank you prayer warriors — your prayers have been answered! Tonyia and Stephen of True Path Ministry are back in Galeana, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. We managed to get here with a vehicle and trailer load of much needed items that we will be giving away in the coming months. We did experience some challenges at the border on the Mexican side. But, the Mexican officials understood we are missionaries and are called to help the good people of Mexico. They let us pass with everything after paying a modest tax. Praise the Lord!
We had been in Texas for over two months visiting churches, gathering donations and making vehicle repairs. We also are the proud grandparents of a new granddaughter, Bailey, who was born on May 22nd to our daughter Maigen, her husband Chris and daughter Ashlinn (11) Isbell.
While in Texas we visited with churches Christ Chapel in Bandera; Lighthouse Assembly of God in Sweetwater; and The Damascus Road Fellowship in Ennis. Plus, a number of individuals gave us financial and other needed donations. We are also grateful to have stayed with several folks. Fellowship with other Christians is always sweet!
To all those who offered support, prayers, words of encouragement and donations I offer this: The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26 (ESV)
