Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

So far 2022 has been a very interesting year. After a very busy and very exciting December full of opportunities to share the wonderful message of Jesus’ birth and connecting with many new friends in our community, we looked forward to starting Bible studies and reaching out in our community in January. But just like in many of your areas, Covid, started up again. We are grateful to the Lord that we stayed healthy, but it seemed like every day we heard of a different friend, neighbor, or church member testing positive. Church services in Aliento de Vida (Breath of Life) Church continued with social distancing, masks and all the protocols and lower attendances but most other gatherings were canceled. Our neighborhood was so quiet as children were in virtual classes and most people were staying inside.

But we are excited to say that things are starting to go back to normal. People are beginning to return to activities little by little. We are enjoying seeing people walking outside and children playing. A couple of days ago, our 4 and 6-year-old neighbors saw us outside and joyfully asked their mom “Can we go and hug the neighbors?” What a joy it was to receive those precious hugs.

February is beginning to fill up with wonderful opportunities to share the love of Jesus. One exciting event is happening tomorrow, and we would really appreciate your prayers. Tomorrow night (Friday, February 11) we will be giving our seminar on the Five Love Languages at a Dinner for Couples at the Woodlands Campus of Aliento de Vida (Breath of Life) Church. This is an outreach of the Woodlands and Santa Anita Campus. People from both campuses are very excited about the event and have been inviting their friends. There are over 100 people signed up to attend! This is a very exciting opportunity to share this helpful teaching with the families of our church but also to share the love of Jesus with many new people. We are excited to tell them how Jesus loves them and speaks their love language.

Please join us in prayer for this special event. Pray that God would speak through us, and that the seminar would be a blessing to the couples who attend. Pray that many will be impacted by the love of Jesus.

There are also many other wonderful things on the schedule in February. Our annual Field Forum retreat, starting Bible Academy classes in the remodeled building in San Sebastian, the expansion of the Bible Academy classes in the other two campuses, a new emphasis in the children’s ministries, reaching out to neighbors and possibly a Bible Study in our home are all in the plans and dreams for the coming weeks. February looks to be full of opportunities.

Thank you for being such an important part of the ministry here. Because of your prayers and sacrificial giving we are able to be here in Guadalajara sharing the life changing message of the love of Jesus with the people here. The people of the Circle of Silence need to know that God loves them speaks their love language.

May God richly bless you!
