Outreach in San Rafael

This Saturday we took a busload of people from Templo Cristiano Libertad visited the town of San Rafael, about 30 minutes away from San Pedro, and held an outreach service in the town plaza. There was praise and worship, the band Reflejo played several songs, the tambourinists did a special performance, and the Brilla Jesus drama team performed 5 skits. The drama team has changed hands this year; it is now led by Lili, Marcela's sister and special events coordinator at the church, and is made up of "younger" youth, including Peter. They did an excellent job!

I would like to thank all of you who were praying for Stephen and who sent notes of encouragement. He is doing well, now, although he is still on medication and has to take it easy at times. We are believing God to bring complete healing to Stephen and we ask that this be your prayer as well.

This weekend we were blessed with a visit from John and Oliver from Advancing Native Missions and from Pastor Mike Acosta of Grace Church. We're glad you could come and see for yourselves the work that is going on in San Pedro and thank you for your support and prayers.

Prayer Request

For about 10 days now, Stephen has been suffering with severe migraines and has been off his feet all week. Yesterday he was admitted to hospital in Torreon where he is in for rest and a round of diagnostic tests. He is being treated and we are expecting him to be released tomorrow, but please pray for his complete recovery and that this pain will no longer be a problem for him. Also pray for the family; Marcela has been with Stephen in the hospital since he was admitted, and the kids are taking turns visiting him as well.

Ministry Need: New Truck

An important member of the work here is not a person, but a vehicle. We have a 20 year old Ford pickup that we use for soccer practices and the children's breakfasts, and for general errands around town. However, it's on its last legs and should be retired after a long and helpful life...we are praying for a donation of a new, reliable truck, or the money to buy one, that we can use for these and other ministries.
