New Beginning

Last weekend we traveled ten hours to the border for our annual meeting with the other missionaries from the Mexico field. There are not many of us (please pray for more workers), but we had a wonderful time meeting with one another and fellowshipping together. We had a safe drive to and from the border, and we are thankful for the time we were able to spend with our colleagues!

Monday of this week we stared language school in Guanajuato. Yeah! We are incredibly thankful for our classes and how God is providing the resources we need in order to attend for several months. As you pray please pray that God would give us the ability to learn Spanish well and that he would direct our steps after these first few months of language school. So far classes are going smoothly and prove to be challenging. Please pray for safety as we have an hour commute one way every day.

We have started working regularly with our church's outreach in La Cañon de La India on Saturday mornings. We see some beautiful children there who we wish we could take home with us and make their lives easier. The children in this neighborhood have so little, but we hope that sharing the love of Jesus with them gives them hope to see beyond their circumstance. As you think of us pray for this outreach and that we will be able to reach families with the love of God! One praise is that Sam's (as in Sam Walton) is partnering with us to do an angel tree project for these children this Christmas. We desire all of the children to be able to have a nice gift for Christmas through this project.

Thanks for your prayers and support! Keep in touch because we love hearing from you!
