Special Prayer Request
December 29, 2005
Dear “Amigos en Cristo,”
On this day in 1962 our daughter and first child was born while we were students
at BBC. She was a primi, born at 6 1/2 months. For many days we did not know if
she would stay with us or not. It was a very difficult time for us, but she
lived and now serves with us as a single missionary.
Today, at 7:17 am, Mountain Time, we received a call from Argentina. Olivia and
her husband Angel are missionaries from our main church in Mexico. She came to
church when she was a little girl. Angel came as a teenager. They are our
"kids." We watch them fall in love and get married. God called them to be
missionaries and we sent them out from our church. They went to the field with
our pastor and his family, the Mares family, to work as a team. It took them
over a year to get pregnant, but the news finally came.
A few days ago she wrote that today they were to take her to the hospital to
start labor. But, during the night the labor started and the baby had a weak
heart and the Lord took it on to heaven, on this the same day He gave us our
daughter. Our hearts are very heavy for Olivia and Angel. I know how dark the
road is for them right now. They love the Lord and are well aware of His
promises, but they really need your prayers at this time.
Please help us to hold them up before the Lord as they go through this very deep
They are the first of our Mexican Missionaries that have been called on to pay
the price of planting a loved one on foreign soil. Please help us to help them
bear the burden.
Yours to Mexico,
Garland and Charlene
