GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!
Last month, we asked you to pray for...
- Religious Association Status. We still do not have sufficient funds to complete this.
- Bible School. Thank you to those of you who have responded to the request of sponsoring a student. There are now only two students who have yet been able to finish paying their tuition before graduation in June.
- Drug Rehab Center: Please continue to pray for the barriers of opposition to be broken. Drug abuse is rampant here and there is no specific Christian help for these people in the region. Pastor Amado and his wife continue to meet with young people and do what they can to help. One young lady is now staying at their own home.
- An Accountant: I met with our accountant last week and it was a very productive meeting! Little by little I am understanding what to do and how to do it. Please continue to pray for clear direction as we dabble with delicate duties.
- Internet. We continue to hope and pray. Someone had a conversation with the phone company a couple weeks ago and the phone operator could not believe we do not have internet here. They said they would get the ball rolling. Well, let’s have faith they will keep their word.
- Splash 2016: Phenomenal event! We had a number of churches participate and it was a lot of fun! Read about it and see pictures at this quick “Splash Report”.
- Church Anniversary Celebration. Excellent time! We had one of the biggest Sunday services ever. Visiting churches celebrated God’s faithfulness with us as we have now been in the building for 5 years! Click here to see a quick report.
- Mesa Team. Successful week. The team shared Bible stories and led various workshops for a week at one of the Cora Indian villages in the mountains. Here is what Missionary, Jay TenBrink, had to say.
Here are some links to more:
- Last Month’s Update.

This month, will you please pray for...
- Religious Association Status. $2,000 USDollars.
- Bible School. Spring classes start on April 5: Missiology and Leadership. Two students have yet been able to pay their tuition in full. If you know them and/or would like to help, let me know and I will share with you how to do that. The two students are Hugo Diaz ($70) and Angel Martinez “Niko” ($340). Thank you on behalf of them.
- Drug Rehab Center: Pray that a piece of property becomes available for this Center; pray that the costs of purchase, construction/renovation, furnishing, and function would be covered.
- Accounting: Pray the Lord will help us grasp the details of the requirements for the Civil and Religious Associations. Pray the Lord will bless this ministry.
- Internet. Continue to pray that a better system becomes available to us.
- San Diego. Pray that the Lord would continue to encourage the leaders in that Bible Study and that those who meet together would be impacted by His love and Spirit.
- Emma turns TEN on April 10. We’ll be having her annual RETO Birthday party with all her friends and it should be a great time.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever!
