Hi everyone, just a quick note about the latest goings-on in San Pedro...

Last week we enjoyed the annual Destiny Church missions conference, "Light Your World". Many of the speakers addressed the ongoing economic crisis facing the world, and we were reminded that God's economy is not dependent on the world's economy, and that he is not limited by banks, currency, employment, etc. In Genesis 26 we read of Isaac, who was facing a severe famine, yet in obedience to God he sowed crops and reaped 100 times what he planted because God blessed him. In his letter to the Philippians, Paul thanks them for sending him aid and reminds them that God will supply all their needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus - not some of your needs, not the needs you think will be most easily met, but every need. In Psalm 23 David says that God prepares a banquet in the presence of his enemies - even in the midst of difficulties and trials, be they personal, relational, economic, God spreads before us all the riches of heaven. At times it is hard to do this; our minds limit us and we think, "But this need is so great, it's impossible", but nothing is impossible for God!

Thanks to everyone at Destiny for another great conference.

El Calor opened the second part of the 2008-09 season with a 9-0 victory on Saturday afternoon. This week they travel to Chihuahua, so please pray for their safety and that God will bless their efforts.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year from everyone here in San Pedro to all of you who read this blog and keep us in your thoughts and prayers. It is our prayer that God will bless you in this new year! We are excited to keep sharing with you what he is doing here in Mexico. We are back to our normal routines now, with the start of classes at the English school and Id Pues Missions School today. We are also getting ready for our trip to San Antonio and the annual missions conference at Destiny Church, which is always a blessing to us.

In early December we were happy to receive a visit from another group from Grace Church of Humble. They stayed over the weekend and participated in the Children's Breakfast and held a service at our San Pedro rehab center. Almost 300 people showed up for the breakfast and we ran out of food, even after a quick trip to a nearby Wal-Mart. We have submitted an application to the food bank asking them to allot us more food, so please pray that they will grant the request.
