¡Viva México! (Long Live Mexico)

Greetings from sunny Central Mexico! Today is Jennifer's birthday and it also happens to be Mexico's Independence Day. So we are preparing to go downtown to eat some yummy Mexican food and watch fireworks with friends. We are thankful for this beautiful country even though it is struggling with its economy and organized crime. We still think it is a great country and we are grateful to call it home!

This past sunday we had a wonderful get together to celebrate Jennifer's birthday and the birthday of someone else in our group. It went well as everyone was able to attend and we spent the whole afternoon and evening together getting to know one another better. Tomorrow night we are starting our church meetings officially and are excited about what God is going to do among us. Please be in prayer for our meeting which starts at 8pm Central time followed by a dinner.

Jennifer asked you to pray for a neighbor with whom she was going to be starting a Bible study. We are thankful to report that they had their first meeting yesterday and it went very well. The neighbor responded positively to the study and then opened up to Jennifer and talked to her for hours about her life's story. Would you continue to pray for this neighbor and that the idolatry in her life would be revealed and God would reign in her heart! She knows NOTHING about the Bible and doesn't know any Bible stories even though she grew up catholic. Therefore, Jennifer is starting from scratch and doing a panoramic study of the Bible with her.

Thanks for your prayers and support as always! We could not minister without you.
