August 2012 Prayer Letter
Dear Friends In Christ:
Last month in our letter we informed you of a great opportunity to purchase a 400 square meter lot for the New Mission of First BBF church in Reynosa. It is true that the new mission is going great. Also their desire is to have a permanent facility in which to worship. They are presently worshiping in a private home. They were offered what sounded like a great opportunity, being able to buy property over a period of time and with hopes of being able to build a church. ALL THIS HAS COME TO NAUGHT! The deal has fallen through! No property! Thank each of you who have sent toward this project. We will refund to you who have sent.
Our hearts were filled with joy as we read the article in the
TRIBUNE for June 2012. Bro. Mike Marcellus, pastor of the First Independent
Baptist Church of Austin Texas is very involved with the South Texas Hispanic
Churches. Mike spent THREE full summers working as a teen in our Youth Camp in
Monterrey, and has visited many other times over the years. Three of the Spanish
pastors that are in the Texas Hispanic Fellowship are from our ministry in
Monterrey before they came as “missionaries” from Mexico to the USA. Juan
Padilla studied for the ministry and was pastor in Monterrey for several years.
He is also the grandson of LUPE GUTIERREZ who pastored in Saltillo for over 60
years. Miguel Carreon and Angel De Leon were also pastors in Monterrey. There
are several other “missionaries” from the Mexican ministry working in the USA to
reach the Spanish-speaking people.
Yours for souls
