A Prayer for Tracey

Dealing with tremendous headaches, I took Tracey in to the doctor to have her examined and to see what can be done to find relief.  She’s had tests and awaits the results and diagnosis in a week.  Please pray for her health.

A Prayer for Teresa


Domingo and Teresa pastor a church in Tizayuca about 30 minutes away.  They’ve been there for several years and now face a trying time of searching for healing for Tere who has cancer…
Please pray for this dear sister in Christ.  Thanks so much.

A touching time

The men’s meeting experienced a touching twist this week as we began our meeting praying for Pastor Domingo’s wife, Tere, who was diagnosed recently with cancer.  Since the men knew Domingo from a prayer vigil we had at his house, they’ve been interested in helping his men’s group get started.  So the tone of the meeting lent itself to God’s touch in our lives.

Looking to the future

Jim H. came to preach about Acts 1:8 in order to put the finishing touch on 2 months of mission exposure.  It was a message elaborating the importance of understanding where our Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria could be.  His message was simple, motivational and inspiring.  Thanks, Jim.

We offered the congregation an opportunity to respond by giving them 3 options – to pray, give or go.  Those who came, assembled themselves according to their interest – “Jerusalem, Judea or Samaria.”  It was stirring to see 75% participate.

Evaluating the past…

We were pleasantly surprised by a good turn out by our leaders for an evaluation time of the past 6 months.  It was encouraging to hear about their achievements and moving to hear their prayer requests.  We are privileged and grateful to have a group of men and women overseeing the different areas of service in the congregation.

Despite the rains…

Our prayer house is small, but with the rains and 12 active youth, we converted it into a hockey rink with make-shift hockey sticks and pucks.  I’m sure that the NHL would have disqualified our set up.  But it was fun and tiring.

Too much birthday…

It started on Wednesday morning with some leaders visiting a family I was visiting, but early.  They sang the typical Mexican birthday song, “Las MaƱanitas,” and invited me to coffee and breakfast.  From that day on, it was cakes and sweets and birthday wishes until we got to the end of the week.  Thanks all for your gifts of love.
