We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Fifteen of the last sixteen Thanksgivings have been spent in Mexico and it has been so much fun to see how the local church celebrates this special day.  We have loved the opportunity to attend their special service and be invited to join them in their USA traditional turkey dinner.  Great memories!

God continues to open new opportunities and we look forward to see how God will use us in the coming year.  It has been so interesting as we look back over our years in Mexico and see how God provided opportunities for a season and then the door closed to those opportunities but others doors opened.  As the local nation and culture change so does the way we do ministry.  However, the message remains the same

Thank you for your faithful prayers, encouragement, and support.  You are a vital part of the ministry in Baja and without you we could not continue to serve.  Attached is our latest newsletter so you know what God is doing in San Vicente.

We pray you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Feliz navidad y próspero año nuevo

Loreto Report November 2018

November 2018

Over the three days we were in the La Paz prison. During this event, there were 139 people who saw our doctors,dentists,and/or received reading or distance glasses. All of these people receiving more than one service – in fact there were a total of 336 services given.  Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support that help to make these outreaches such a success. No other group is now allowed to go into these prisons to do what we do – and this time over 40 people prayed to receive Christ into their lives!  And almost all of the others we saw asked questions and were prayed for. How wonderful is all this?! So your partnership with us in this worthwhile ministry is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hilliker Letter November 2018

Hello from the Hillikers,

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope that each of you had a wonderful holiday with time to enjoy family and friends, to eat good food, and most importantly, to give thanks. We can’t say enough how thankful we are for your encouragement, support, prayers, and your friendship! Thank you for continuing to “go” with us.

As December draws near, we are looking forward to time in the United States over the Christmas holiday. It’s hard to believe that the time is passing so quickly, and that our first leg of language school is almost complete. “El tiempo vuela cuando te diviertas!”

Please know how much we appreciate each of you. Thank you!!

Hilliker Letter October 2018

Greetings from Guanajuato,

 

We hope this letter finds you well! Learning Spanish can be fun, yet challenging. We thought we would share a few nuggets from our learning for your fun, too! 

 

There are many words that sound very similar in Spanish and English, and in fact mean the same thing. These are called cognates. Some examples are words such as actor (actor), culture (cultura), and opinion (opinión). Easy, right? Until you start making cognates of words that have a totally different meaning. For example, arm is not arma, that means gun, deception is not decepción, that means disappointment, and sin is not sin, in Spanish it means without. Big differences! It’s been fun to laugh at our rookie mistakes.

 

We’re so grateful for grace and patience from our instructors and friends. We are grateful for each one of you as well! Thank you for your continued prayers.

Hilliker Letter September 2018

Hello from the Hillikers,

 

It’s hard to believe we’ve already been in Guanajuato for three weeks! We have just completed our second week of language school, and it looks like we will continue with our current school, Colegio Adelita, for the next 12 weeks. We have been learning a lot and improving our language skills little by little each day. 

 

When we arrived, we were curious about the origin of the name of our new home. Guanajuato’s name is actually derived from a Purépecha indian word which means the mountainous place of frogs. We haven’t figured out exactly which of the mountains around us resemble frogs, but it makes for a good basis for an adventure!

 

Thank you for praying with us and for us. We continue to trust God as He directs our steps.

“The Mountains Will Move” – September 2018

September 2018

Hello Friends,

We are excited to be able to share this update with you about the summer ministry at La Esperanza.  There will be more updates about the summer coming this fall because there are so many more stories to tell!  God was working in so many ways at La Esperanza this summer!  Praise God!

We are about to embark on our trip to Idaho and Montana.  We are so grateful that this is possible!  On August 29th, we celebrated a year since Buky received his approval for his green card in Juarez!  God is good!  We look forward to seeing many friends who have served at La Esperanza in years past.

Thank you so much for your investment in our ministry – through prayer, donations, by coming to serve!  We are so blessed to have so many friends and family that lift us up in prayer.  We couldn’t do this without you!

God bless,

Theresa, Buky, and Elena
