Happy New Year! Thank you so much for being part of our ministry this past year whether you prayed, gave, and/or came down to help.  We are very grateful and appreciate all of you!  2017 was a year a many blessings in the midst of many trials.  The greatest thing of all is that God never changes.  He is our strength and our joy; He is the cornerstone of our faith!

We look forward to another year and appreciate your continued prayer and support for our family and ministry.


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

  1. Women’s Conference Five women connected to our ministry went to the conference in Mazatlan and came back blessed.  We continue to pray for someone to be raised up as a leader in this area. 
  2. Freedom in Christ Seminar What an excellent time!  Over 30 people representing 6 different churches attended the seminar.  It was a blessing to see how the atmosphere changed as we went along.  Freedom in Christ is a wonderful thing!  Click here for a quick report and pictures.
  3. Restoration Center Thank you for your continued prayers.  There are only a few hours left before the end of the year to donate to the restoration center.  We still have not reached our goal. Click here to make your final year end donation.
  4. Lain & Kelly Grant. The Grants are in New Mexico and have given birth to two tiny little girls: Naya Michelle and Mia Lynnette.  We are excited for them as they continue in their new chapter.  Here is a first look at their new family.
  5. Border Trip. Thank you for your continued prayers.  We are currently with Geña’s sister in Southern California and will be arriving back in Cofradía again around the 10th of January.

Here are some links to more:

This month, will you please pray for...

  1. Border Trip. Please pray for our travelling safety and time to rest (Now through January 10). 
  2. Elder’s Retreat.  Please pray for Wisdom for Pastor Goyo and those who will be helping him lead.  Pray for freshness and a strength in our team as we work together (January 12-13). 
  3. Short-Term Missions team from Cy-Fair Christian Church in Houston, Texas, will be joining us in January to build a home for Florentina, a delightful indigenous woman from our church (January 20-27). 
  4. Bible School We are working on getting those who have invested money in their tuition to be able to finish their degrees through Summit Bible College.  Pray for our future with this as we are running thin on qualified help.  We would really like to see this continue.
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!!!!
