Update 2017

   How time flies by! The first two months of 2017 have already come and gone. We have been blessed to see growth in all areas and are excited with what God is doing. Two weeks ago Stephen went to visit our sister church in the city of Monclova to give a two day conference on the flow of the the Holy Spirit. We were expecting an maximun of 80 people to attend but over 350 people arrived on the first day. The presence of God wea very strong and when the time came to end the session, the people asked for more teaching and stayed another two hours withour anybody leaving. The next and final day of the conference more than 500 people were in attendance with standing room only.
   Here in San Pedro we have been praying on how to best keep on ministering to people in need of drug and alcohol rehab. Several years ago, during the cartel violence, the state government ordered closed all 24 hr rehab centers. The two centers we worked in were also closed. Last week we started here in the local church a new group on an outpatient bases using Celebrating Recovery. The response was great and soon we will have tow grooups going in our city.
   Thank you for your continued prayer and support for the work here in Mexico. May God richly bless you.
