Just a short update on what's been happening here in San Pedro:

  • Stephen and Marcela have returned safely after a successful week-long conference in Houston. Stephen is now preparing for a trip to Nashville in mid-November.
  • Work continues on the new building for our children's breakfasts. The men at our Torreon rehab center are working hard, and the walls are almost done, the floor will be laid sometime next week, and we hope to start distributing from this location within the month. Please pray that there will be no delays and that there will be sufficient funds to complete the work.
  • The El Calor soccer team continued its winning streak with a 1-0 result on Saturday in the city of Juarez. This Saturday is the final regular season game, and the team is now in training for the playoffs, taking place through November.
  • We are getting ready to welcome a young man from England who is on his way right now to San Pedro to work and minister with us for several months.

Update: Traveling

Stephen, David, and Elizabeth arrived safely home last week after spending two weeks in Chile. Their trip was the first step in forging a stronger relationship with the church in Chile, and there are plans in place for a reciprocal visit later in 2008. Thanks to all those who were praying for the trip. Stephen is heading to Houston on Monday for a conference; please keep him in your prayers as he travels and ministers there.
