July 2011 Prayer Letter 

Dear Friends In Christ

Psalms 150:6 “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord”.

This month we just want to PRAISE the Lord! I praise Him for Godly parents who taught me to love and serve Him. I praise Him for saving my soul at 11 years old. I praise God for giving me my beautiful and talented wife Margie in 1949, who has served Him with me for 62 years.

We praise God for our two sons: Missionaries Dr. Lonnie Jr. and Dr. Ronnie Leon. Praise God for their wonderful families. We praise Him for our SEVEN grand children who are saved and also serving the Lord: One a PhD in University of IN. One has two master degrees and who is serving with her husband who is the superintendent of a High School in Texas. One who is a police detective in MO? One who is an English Teacher in McAllen. One who is a Flight Instructor in Texas. One who with her husband is working full time in a Church in McAllen, Texas. One who is only 13 but is using his musical talent in the youth department of his church. We also praise God for SIX great grand children.

We praise God for the many pastors and friends who help us each year to financially provide material for over 60 DVBS to reach the children of Mexico with the Gospel. In spite of the rising cost each year of these materials, through you, God has always supplied this extra expenses. Please pray for the workers who will be conducting these VBS this year. Pray for the salvation of many souls.

We praise God for his mercy and grace that has sustained us in our 60 years in the ministry and the 55 years we have served as missionaries in Mexico. There have been many times when HE has not only walked beside, but has lifted us up and carried us through the trials and temptations.

We praise God for YOU. Praise God for using you to supply our financial needs in order to live and work in Mexico. There have been some lean years, but God has provided our needs every step of the way and we praise Him for allowing us (out three families) to have a part in building over 130 churches and missions. “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord”

Yours for souls in Mexico,
Lonnie & Margie Smith
