Answered Prayer

God answers prayer and we all know that but sometimes we neglect to give him thanks where thanks is due. We want to take a few moments and praise him for several things in our life.

First off we asked you to pray for our support and thanks to many generous people like yourselves we had a strong month of support in August. We give thanks for this wonderful gift and ask that you continue to pray for strong financial and prayer support!

Second, we had the privilege of having Bert Jones, the president of GO InterNational here with us for a few days. It was great to be able to show him León and a nearby city where we are thinking about expanding our ministry. Plus, it was encouraging to have someone from back home with us here and to be able to share life together for a brief amount of time. We are always blessed by visitors in our house. We were in need of some encouragement and God sent us just what we needed.

Third of all we are thankful for a breakfast we just had with a local pastor and his family. They too have felt lonely and would like some moral support as they church-plant. We are thankful for this family's sweet spirit and willingness to reach out to us and pray for us. We hope to support them in their ministry. We give thanks for this Mexican family!

Also, Jennifer will be starting to teach English and ballet next week to underprivileged children and adults. We are thankful for this opportunity and ask that you would be in prayer for her as she makes contacts and loves these people through teaching.

And thank you for praying!!!! God is good!!!
