Loreto Newsletter – December 2019

Christmas Letter 2019

We’re looking forward to a Great New Year filled with activities to encourage other Christians, and with activities to bring the love of Jesus and the message of salvation to the many in our area who are seeking to know our ‘blessed Lord Jesus’ – once a child, and now the King… We trust you have this same outlook for your life where you live—that’s our prayer for you… Please keep praying for us in 2020, and the Lord will continue to also do great things here in our area as a result. Thank you again for your faithfulness.

October 2019 Newsletter

Within days of our return to Loreto, we were busy organizing and preparing for the coming outreaches.  This weekend was just one more example of how much we have to be thankful for and how much praise is owed to our wonderful Savior and Lord.  Over 80 people prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior.  Great News!  Praise the Lord!  Click on the link above to see photos and read the rest of the story.

Warmly, Don & Lorraine

May 2019 Newsletter

May was another busy month for us here in Loreto, but very exciting as we have had Adriana Payton-Kruska and Gill Kruska with us providing teaching in four churches on ‘How to manage or avoid Diabetes’…  Also our Pastor’s Fellowship has gone over another hurdle here in Loreto during this past month, and so we have formed a new group called ‘Agape’ – hopefully all of the Pastors will join with us now…

In addition our English Church attendance has dwindled as many people leave Loreto for the summer, but we will resume in the fall as people return…

Please pray for our next outreach in the Santa Rosalía Prison as we are encountering a couple of frustrations that we are trying to work out… But as in the past, the Lord brings everything together for His glory – so we are anticipating another wonderful time in the prison this month…

Attached is our Report with photos and details…  Thank you again for your prayers and support!

La Paz Prison Report March 2019

La Paz Prison Team Full Report

In one sense, one could say that this was the best team ever this time in this prison -because the inmates that have come to know Christ in the prison have matured in Christ to whereas they are now reaching out to their fellow inmates.  It really was exciting to see one inmate sharing Christ with another inmate, and then to put his arms around this other inmate, and pray for him.    Thank you again for all of your prayers and financial support that really 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 people’s lives are being changed as a result. They all appreciate the love and attention we give them, as we share the love of Jesus with them-and many are receiving the message of salvation.

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!
