This week was an especially hard week ministry wise. We had some very difficult moments and have felt discouraged. As we've been told this is normal for people who are in full-time ministry, but that doesn't make it any easier. We are praying that God would guide us as we seek to be one with him and out of our relationship with him serve others. When we serve, give, and love the hurting world around us sometimes we get hurt in return. Sometimes, things don't go smoothly for us, and sometimes we feel lonely and wonder if what we are doing is making a difference. Then we remember that Jesus too was rejected and felt alone. When he was going to be crucified his disciples left him and betrayed him. Our Saviour has gone through every trial that we have gone through, and is aware of our pain and frustration.

We are so glad that many of you are praying for us, and some of you are even praying for us daily. We are humbled and know that your prayers, by God's grace, have been sustaining us. Would you continue to lift us up in prayer?

Here are some things you can pray for:


Constant surrender to Jesus

Guidance and Discernment

Our friends who do not know Jesus deeply

Mature Christians to join us in ministry

Thanks for your continued prayers and support and for ministering with us here in Central Mexico. We will continue to give God the glory and praise!

Hang in there, guys! Ah, we've had the same kind of week. We're praying for you individually, as a couple and as missionaries. We're lonely with you :) Stay in the Word. Prayers and love!
