Dear Friends In Christ:
Easter week was a great time in which our churches served the
Lord. Special services were conducted in each church. Souls were saved and the
attendance this year was up from other times. Please continue to pray for the
unrest conditions in Mexico. The drug cartels are still causing trouble and
there are rumors of some groups joining together to resist the Federal
This year’s annual pastor retreat was a great time of
Fellowship and rejoicing in the Lord. The pastors from all over Mexico arrived
in chartered busses at Rawlings Highland camp and participated in the program of
“The High Cost of being a Pastor”. Some eleven or twelve pastors brought
messages on this subject. Those attending rejoiced in the Lord. Please pray for
the next Fellowship meeting which will be in October 2012 in Bogata Columbia.
Finances will be a problem.
The material ordered for the DVBS of 2012 has
arrived. A brother from a church in San Antonio made a trip to California to the
“Mensaje de Vida” facilities and brought back the material for another
missionary and for us. It saved us over 60% of our shipping cost. The material
has been separated into packages for the different churches and missions. They
have been delivered into Mexico where Bro. Angel Zapata will distribute them to
those who will teach over 9,000 boys and girls the gospel story. We still need
some help to ease this financial burden. We believe that God will supply all our
need, and we thank you for your help.
We give a special THANKS to Al and
Jody Williams who have delivered another FOUR pianos for the churches in Mexico.
Bro. Al is in business of tuning and repairing pianos in Northern Texas and
Southern Oklahoma. They have donated over 50 pianos through the years to Mexico.
We just finished printing another 1000 Songbooks for the
Spanish speaking churches. Bro. Eliseo Delgado family in Reynosa has finished
putting them together and we have finished trimming them. They are ready for
deliver to the churches. Also we have printed 10,000 tithing envelopes this
Beloved we are so thankful for your faithfulness in prayer and
financial help. God continues to bless His Word in the churches and missions. We
do ask you to continue to pray for us each church and pastor. Pray for the
graduates of the several Bible Colleges in Mexico. They are the future.
Yours for souls
