Greetings from Cofradía, Mexico!  After we returned from Arizona, we were plunged right into the rainy season!  It rained every day for a week, that’s the first time that I can think of the rainy starting with full force.  Many people’s roofs were leaking, including roofs at the base, the church, and our own.  It appears that we’ve been able to take care of the leaks, but feel sorry for and trying to help some people who are still struggling.

The last couple of months we’ve asked prayer for...

  • Baby Things are going very well and the Dr. says that everything is normal.  Thank you for your continued prayers for Geña and the baby.
  • Mother’s Day The Women’s Ministry headed up by Geña had their traditional pancake breakfast on May 10 (Mexican Mother’s Day) and it went very well.  There were almost 60 mothers in attendance!
  • Cora Indian Outreach  The Agua Aceda Ministry Team kicked off ministry in that village with an open-air evangelistic meeting at their basketball/volleyball court in May.  It was a great time of music, drama, puppets, and preaching.  We closed with a time of prayer with the people of the town and many were blessed and eager for more.  The team has been following up each week and just last Friday they blessed a family with a lean-to roof at their house.  See details here
  • EL RETO This is a huge special need right now as it is each year.  We have been planning for the past couple of months some details of this year’s event, “The Danger Zone,” and we need your help.  Please click here to see how you can be involved.
  • Missionary Staff Retreat We had an excellent time in Mazatlan for two days talking about the direction of the Base’s Ministry.  Our primary function is to support Centro Cristiano Cofradía by means of Short-Term Mission groups and staff abilities.  We are also here to bless the community in any way we can.  Thank you for your prayers and continued support!
  • Quick trip to the United States We were in Arizona for a couple of weeks with our friends, the Michers.  They were great hosts and we appreciate them very much.  While we were there, we visited an amazing church that made us feel more than welcome.  We are looking forward to the next time we get to visit our family at Grace to the Nations
