We are praying for all of our friends in Houston as you recover from Hurricane Harvey.
A big thank you to all who have responded to us saying you’ve been praying for us. That means so much! We are so grateful for all of you and appreciate your generosity and help.
We are doing better and looking into ways to make our house more secure for the future as well as the mission base which was also broken into.
GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!
In our last update, we asked you to please pray for...
- Wisdom, Protection, the Theif, and Cofradia in General Thank you!
- The Restoration Center in Rosamorada. Thank you for continuing to lift this up in prayer.
- EL RETO 2017 has begun! The first two weeks are behind us as the students talked about their identity as a team and relate it to who we are in Christ in the first week and did The Walk in the second week. You can check out some pictures and video at our Facebook page.
- Rebecka is doing excellent at school and has the travelling thing down now. She turned 15 on August 13 and we had a nice small get-together with family and friends.
