Greetings, from Cofradía, Mexico!  The weather has been getting a lot warmer lately; that’s usually what May brings.  Things are going well and there continues to be lots of activities.  Please keep us in your prayers as we serve the Lord here in Mexico.  We pray for you often.

Last month, we asked for your prayers concerning:

  • Baby Thank you for your prayers!  The Doctor continues to say that everything is going well and the ultrasounds are showing good health.  We had hoped to go to Washington to have the baby, but it looks like we’ll stay here in Mexico for the birth.  
  • “It Is Finished” A great evening of remembering what Christ has done for us.  Not only did he die for us, but God raised him from the dead!  Many people came forward to be ministered to that night.  Click here for more.
  • Emma Rose She was so excited to turn six!  We had a great time with her and her friends on April 10.  Click here to see pictures.
  • Mom and Dad Silberman 44 years and doing great!
  • Cora Indian Outreach  Our local body of believers went on an Evangelism Outreach to the Cora Indian village, Mojocuautla.  A lot of the town came out to the center of town to see the dramas, music, testimonies and be prayed for.  Click here to see more.
  • Leadership Classes Martin is doing a great job sharing with the Leadership some things he learned in Oaxaca.
  • I preached on April 29 and May 6 It went really well and I had a lot of fun.  Click here for the short report.
  • Marriage Class Leaders Abraham Aguilar and his wife, Graciela, have been doing a great job.
  • Evangelism Outreach Our students had the opportunity to participate in a mini youth conference.  The original plan was an evangelistic outreach, but it turned into a youth conference with other surrounding churches in this region.  Click here for more.
