Hilliker Letter July 2018

Hooray! Hooray! We’re on our way!
That is the opening line from one of Wayne’s favorite children’s books — The Bears’ Vacation. We are very
close to launching out to serve full-time with Mexican Medical Ministries.
What a blessing it is to be part of the work that God is doing. We are grateful to have family and friends
(new and old) encouraging and praying for us along the way. It’s hard to believe that our call to “Go!” was
almost two years ago, and it’s been less than a year since the board appointed us as full-time missionaries.
Very soon, we will go and serve indefinitely. “Hooray! Hooray! We’re on our way!”

Paul and Jean Goodner blessed us the last week of April with Pastor/Leadership training based on the Bible. This was the fifth year of the series and we had thought it would be the last in this series. However, on Friday evening when the class ended nearly everyone in attendance said they had learned so much and asked them to return next year. So, we are planning another week sometime next spring. Always exciting for Lynne and myself when the nationals want more training.

Effective ministry is not only about what you can do, it is also about how well you teach others.  Paul Goodner

Wayne had the opportunity to serve with a team in Cabo the first week of June. The team spent most of the week at the clinic in Cabo, doing repairs to the fence and painting the inside of the clinic. A small task, but a big blessing to the doctor and his family. It is exciting to see the ministry that is already being done by the local church. One church feeds children in the surrounding colonia three times each week and offers a rehab center for men. That same church hosted 90-100 ladies for a women’s conference while we were there.

Following our morning devotions at the dental clinic at the Santa Rosalia prison, the director said how glad he was that the six men whom he is responsible to in the State Government offices were at the prison during the dental clinic so that they could see first hand how we go about changing lives in prison.

Warmly,

Hilliker Letter May 2018

We are writing to share with you some exciting news. Erin and I have been accepted to serve as fulltime missionaries with Mexican Medical Ministries (MMM). Our church has said, “We will send you.”  So we have begun our preparations to go!  Our ministry will be throughout Baja California and in the southern state of Chiapas. We will be assisting fellow missionaries in their efforts to bring healing and hope to the people of Mexico by participating in health fairs, disaster relief, and evangelistic outreaches. For the past 50 years MMM has been dedicated to providing low or no-cost health care to the people in these areas of Mexico.  Today, they are still active, partnering with churches, clinics and hospitals; providing medical services and working with local churches to present Jesus Christ as Savior to their neighbors.

Partner in Ministry,

We were so excited to hear the people of San Vicente share about their mission’s trip to Nayarit (central Mexico).  I, Dave, had the opportunity to accompany the church on their early mission trips and now it is awesome to see them doing the trips all on their own.  It is clear God is working in many of their lives.

I, Dave, am feeling really good and walking several mornings each week for over an hour.  It feels so good to not have any negative feeling which had been so much a part of my life the past 3 years.  We thank God for the medical team which has worked to improve my life and give me back some energy.

We have attached our latest newsletter for you to know what is happening in our ministry and assist as you pray for us and the ministry.  Thank you for your continued prayer, encouragement, and support.

Loreto Report – March 2018

Good evening… 

 

It has been another great month here in Loreto, so we want to quickly bring you up to date and mention a couple of prayer requests.

 Attached is our Monthly Report

These are our immediate Prayer Requests

Easter Sunday we will  again be putting on our Easter Sunrise Service…  I has been cold in the mornings here in Loreto, and we hope that will not keep people away.  Also this Saturday night we change to daylight savings time here in Mexico, so it is possible that some people planning to attend, might sleep in and miss coming…  So please pray that many will attend, despite these possible eventualities…  Pray too that our sound equipment will work well…, and that everyone’s hearts will be open to hearing the Gospel.…

In April it is our plan to once again be taking our Health Fairs to the Prison in La Paz. We have heard this past week that there have been additional problems in that prison, and so the Mexican Army has taken over the management and operations of this prison. Pray that the doors will be open for us to hold our Health Fairs there at the end of this month, and that all the volunteers what we will need will be coming, etc., etc.

We trust you will have a Wonderful Easter Weekend…, and thank you again for your prayers and partnering with us in so many ways…  God bless you!  

 Warmly,  

Don & Lorraine

Greetings from Baja California!  We are doing well and still love the opportunity to serve in Mexico.

The weather has been on the cool side the past couple of weeks with morning temperatures near freezing and below.  We feel sorry for so many of the people living here because they have no heat or insulation in their homes and so it is cold in the morning.  I have been walking before sunrise and see lots of people going to work between 5:00 and 6:30 am.  Most are all bundled up to try and stay comfortable.

We have attached our latest newsletter for your information and assist you as you pray for us and the ministry.

February 2018 Newsletter

Dear friends, family and fellow workers,

Each time I sat to write this, I would hear the Lord direct me to come and spend time with Him. I did not know then how much I would need this time with Him to move forward in this writing, the fleshing out of these stories. This is just a one slice perspective of what we saw God doing in Cuba those ten days. I pray these stories raise your faith and encourage you in your own daily ministries.
Much love, Cris(ty) Mccoy
