Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

The leaves are beginning to turn colors, the temperature has dropped significantly and you can see (and smell) the smoke swirling from the chimneys. The water at the beach has turned from aquamarine to a frothy mochaccino. School is in session, Holy Week (Tourism Week here) is over and fall has arrived, so the new year has officially begun.
Here are a few Highlights from the past 3 months...rejoice with us to God's answered prayers:
1. In February we had a "Day in the Country" with our church family and also the Tres Cruces Alliance Church. We enjoyed perfect weather, eating, talking, laughing, worshipping and praying together...sounds just like Acts 2:42!
2. In March we celebrated the El Estar Alliance Church's fourth anniversary...how time flies! We had a great time reflecting on God's faithfulness and goodness to us.
3. In March we also started the "Beyond Suffering" course from Joni & Friends and there are a total of 75 Uruguayan pastors, leaders and Seminary students taking the course. We are learning how to minister to people with disabilities and include them in our churches.
4. In April we celebrated Easter with an interactive communion service. One person commented that they were so moved that they couldn't even sing, and another person told me that she always prayed and told Jesus that she wanted to see Him, and that day she said as she went to take communion, she saw His face and she couldn't stop crying.

All of these things have happened because of your prayers and your giving to the Great Commission Fund. Thank you so much! We couldn't be present serving here in Uruguay without you. Sunday, May 24 is Great Commission Sunday. You can give through your local Alliance Church or on-line through this link: https://secure.cmalliance.org/give/#gift-form When you give, you enable your Alliance workers to meet critical spiritual and physical needs, disciple new believers, plant new churches, and provide a lasting gospel presence among the world’s least reached.
Yours in His Service, Bruce and Steph.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer
