New Bible study & Filling Up

We’ve begun new Bible study classes on "Emotional Health" taught by Pastor Francisco at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays, just before the service.  God is good to fill our prayer house with a good group of believers.
Our morning service is beginning to fill up too.  Just when I thought we had lost some steam, believers showed up anticipating to study God’s word and worship him.

Sisters

These two sisters live in the area where we are starting a new work.  On Sunday, they participated in the service teaching the congregation the new verse to memorize for the month.  They are grateful to God for all he’s done for them.

New Teachers

Jon is one of our new teachers of English and guitar.  Here he is teaching students how to strum.  While we only had two students come, we trust more will come when the weather is better.

The New Place

We began classes Saturday afternoon in a cage.  That is, the structure set up for a temporary storefront outside of the apartment of one of the members of our church.  While it was cold and also “Buen Fin” (equivalent to Black Friday in Mexico) we managed to start.

The Handout

 
Our new church planting team went to the local elementary school and middle school in “Bosques” (Forest) to hand out flyers inviting students and parents to drop by on Saturday to take music classes and English classes.  There was lots of interest.  Thanks team!

A house of cards?

When I got back to the church, I was greeted by a friend who told me that things had not gone so well in the church.  He began to detail the different incidences that caused conflict.  I sat back carefully and took it all in and then said, “I’m glad it’s happening now while we can work together to get back on track.”  God is in charge, so I’m not worried.

Jim and Linda

Jim and Linda have been a God-sent for our family during this difficult time of readjusting our lifestyles.  They have offered Tracey, and me, a place to stay while Kiana gets better.  Besides inviting us to eat with them, they’ve often gone out of their way to help us out.  May God richly bless this exceptional couple as they’ve served so many.
