May 2014

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and generosity. It is with great anticipation that we are preparing to start having services here in less than three weeks (Sunday, June 1)!  The meeting room is reserved. The flyers and posters are at the printer. Bibles and faith-building books will be available. Best of all, we have friends that are looking forward to coming.  One of them keeps asking, “When are we starting? I will definitely be there!” Another tells us she is trying to think of all the people that she can invite. It is exciting to be a part of what God is doing. We are so thankful that you are a part of it too!

“I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already unto harvest.” – Jesus Christ (John 4:35)

Praying For Our Services

One of our best and most humbling experiences on the mission field has been sensing our partners’ prayer support.  Some days and in some projects we experience extra strength and ability from God, and we know that you are praying. Thank you so much!  God is good and is answering your prayers!

Here is a brief list of ways that you can pray for our upcoming services:

1. Pray for us as we teach the Bible in Spanish. (Ephesians 6:19)

We must share God’s Word with boldness and fluidity in our second language!

2. Pray God’s power will be displayed to meet needs. (Zechariah 10:1)

The rain referred to in this scripture symbolizes the Holy Spirit.  Just like rain causes a seed to grow, the power of the Holy Spirit causes the seed of the Word of God to grow in people’s hearts.

3. Pray that those who don’t know God will know Him. (Ezekiel 22:30)

God asks us to pray for those who are far from Him, so that they won’t suffer the pain that comes from a life without God.  He wants to bless everyone.  If we pray, it opens people up to God and His blessings.

4. Pray this general prayer for the ministry in Burgos:

“Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith.”
