December 2016 Newsletter

Hello friends!

 We wanted to share with you about fall ministry at La Esperanza.  It seems that the ministry should slow down after summer, but there is always more work to be done!  God is good, as He continues to draw people in our area to His heart.  It is a blessing to be a part of God’s work here.  We look forward to a slower-paced time with family this holiday season.  Our prayer is that you will be able to slow down and enjoy the holiday as well.   Please pray for healing for Angel (there is more information in the attached newsletter).  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 God bless you!

WOW! What an awesome summer of ministry! Our teams partnered with the Angels to share Jesus in San Vicente, Ensenada, and with some of the farm laborers who come to our area for work each season. Some of our team leaders commented about how much the Angels have advanced in their ability to use a variety of new ways to share about Jesus. This something we have worked very hard to do the past few years and very exciting to see that training being used.

One of the most exciting areas of ministry for us has been to see the nationals take more responsibility for ministry and reaching their own people for Jesus Christ. The Angels have made tremendous progress in this area. These young people continue to lead not only other youth but also the entire local church to a stronger personal relationship with God.

Lynne and I want to thank you for your prayers, encouragement and support. God is using each of you as you partner with us to assist the church and people of San Vicente to take the leadership of providing the leadership, biblical education, training and experience to lead their churches to even greater effectiveness.

Attached is our latest newsletter to assist you in praying for us and providing information so you know what we are doing to assist and train the local church. God bless you!

How exciting to see God changing people’s lives, their hopes and their dreams. As we watch the Angels grow and mature, as young people but also as young people who have a desire to serve God, we are thrilled. Ten years ago one young lady asked to go with us to tell her own people about Jesus and now that one has grown to twenty young people. God allowed this team to grow slowly which allowed us to grow into this ministry and we love both the youth and the ministry.

Our last couple of teams have worked in partnership with the local church to build a house for a family of the church. It has been so fun to watch the family as they watch their house being built and the excitement they have shown. The husband/father is not able to do any strenuous work due to a heart condition so this makes it even more special to help the church help this family.

We have attached our latest newsletter to assist you as you pray for us. Without our support team back home we could not fulfill the ministry God has called to in San Vicente. Thank you so much for your prayers, encouragement, and support. You are a vital part of this ministry

God bless you and know you are appreciated!

Jesus was the greatest leader because he was the greatest servant
