Greetings from the Silbermans! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!  We are currently visiting my parents in Washington for a few days and will be in Southern California for another week before we drive back to Cofradía.  We are enjoying this small window of time with family after a very busy November and December.

In our last update, we asked you to pray for... 
  1. Religious Association Status.  We have sent in the first round of paperwork and are waiting for a response from Mexico City.  Thank you for your continued prayers. 
  2. Bible School. Continue to pray for the Masters students as they finish up their Thesis.  Contact me if you feel led to help them or have a question about their financial need.
  3. Freedom in Christ conference in Cofradia: We had a great time with the leaders of Freedom in Christ Ministries here in Mexico.  They guided us through a 13 week discipleship curriculum in four days.  It was intense, but the outcome was very helpful.  Some of the testimonies where that people were able to sleep at night with a peaceful mind.  Thank you for your prayers. 
  4. Drug Rehab Center: Still waiting for the Rosamorada Town Hall meeting in order to get the land for the Center.  Thank you for praying. 
  5. Border Run.  So far, everything has been going well.  We are enjoying ourselves with my parents and look forward to spending next week with Geña’s family in California.  Thank you for your continued prayers for safe travels and divine encounters.

This month, will you please pray for...

  1. Religious Association Status.  We want to make sure that the church we have planted in Cofradia is legal.  This is the underlying reason why we need a Religious Association.  We are looking at a minimal cost of $2,000 US Dollars in order for this to be accomplished and need help with the cost.  Click here to safely send a tax-deductible contribution.  Thank you. 
  2. Bible School. Continue to pray for the Masters students finishing up their Thesis.  Contact me if you feel led to help them or have a question about their need.
  3. Drug Rehab Center: Thank you for your continued prayers for this as we look forward to seeing this Center become a reality. 
  4. Border Run.  Thank you for continuing to pray for our safety and good health while we’re in the states.  We’ll be returning to Cofradia on the 11th of January.
  5. Short-Term Mission Team We are hosting a team from Houston, Texas from January 23 – 30 with a focus on Marriage and Family Relationships.  Pray for another successful time with nurtured international relationships and strong families and marriages.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever!
