Greetings from Cofradía, Mexico!  Congratulations to the Romero Carrillo family who received a free house this past month from the Sluys through our Dwellings ministry here in Cofradia.  It was an exciting day; their smiles were priceless!  You can read about it here.  We are preparing for the next house that will be built next week for Pastor Abimael and his family from Tuxpan with the help of the sponsors, The Well Church of Salt Lake City.


In our last update, we asked you to please pray for...

  1. Dwellings Build #13 An excellent time!  
  2. Dwellings Build #14 please pray for safety for the workers and the Americans who will be joining us for next week’s build. 
  3. Restoration Center Pastor Amado and his team are still preparing the rental and materials.  He will be making a trip to Guadalajara soon in order to receive more training.  
  4. La Cofradia United International I’ve been able to get into contact with our accountant this last month.  Please continue to pray that things that things will be done with efficiency. 
  5. Interns.  Thank you for praying for God’s guidance and His provision of help.

This month, will you please pray for...

  1. Dwellings Build #14 Pray for our team as we continue the preparations and get ready for the group who arrives on Saturaday, November 4. 
  2. Restoration Center Pray for wisdom as he prioritizes his time and God’s provision over his ministry.  He still needs finances for the property.  We have helped him raise $9,000 which is nearly half the goal.  There is still the opportunity of matching funds available in the amount of $2,500.  That means, your $2,500 is worth $5,000!  Then, the only amount needed after that is $6,000.  If you are considering a generous year-end donation to a ministry, this would be a great selection!  Send your online gift here.  Or, mail a check to the Ferndale address at the end of this message.  Indicate that it is for “Cofradia Restoration”, NOT the Silbermans.   
  3. La Cofradia United International accounting help. 
  4. Freedom in Christ Seminar Please pray for us as we begin the preparations of our next Freedom in Christ Seminar for December 15,16.  Pray the Holy Spirit guides us and begins to move in the hearts of the people who need this.  God will see to it that the one’s He chooses will be able to make it.  Pray for Pastor Goyo, Pastor Luis, and myself as we prepare ourselves and the material we will be using. 
  5. 17 YEARS! Geña and I will be celebrating 17 years of marriage on November 18.  A big thank you to all who have been a part of our lives and ministry.

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

Thank you so much for being part of our team as we work together to RAISE UP LEADERS IN RURAL MEXICO!!!!
