little update!

Hi everyone! I thought you might appreciate a little update. The photo at the left is a picture of Fernando and Flor, the generous and precious Mexican couple that I have ben living with these last six months! They have been so very good to me and I am so thakful to the Lord for them!
A small update about the possibility of working with the women in the casa hogar ministry. The Lord seems to be arranging the details so that I can go out and have a visit to see what the place is like and met the Pastor and his wife that run the place. PLEASE do kep praying that the Lord would continue to direct and confirm step by step if this is indeed a place that he would have me work and serve Him.
Another thing that I wanted to share is that when I was a short-term worker here in august 2005-February 2006, there were several people that I had opportunities to share the gospel with becuase I would often go to the cathedrals and pray for and talk to people. Well there was a man that often painted plates and things as souveniers in the center of Cuernavaca. Often I would talk to him and tried to share the gospel with him at times. Since being back here now as a long-term worker, there are a few times wjere I had been in that area of Cuernavaca and had pased by the spot where he and I had talked as he worked. I thought of him and wondered where he was now. Well, the other day I went to the center of Cuernavaca, walked passed that spot, and saw a man painting some plates. As I walked by, I realized it was him and he also reogized me. ¨I remember you, * he said *you were here two years ago or so.* So we talked for a little bit. The really bad thing is that his name has escaped me! But I thought it was neat that the Lord had brought him accross my path again.
Please pray that in all that I do, I would have opportunities to share Christ´s love with others!
And just a little side-note! Thank you so much to all of those that have sent notes and Christmas cards! How special it was this morning to go check my postal box and receive special letters and updates from so many of you! Saying thank you doesn´t quite fully express my gratitude for all of you and for your prayers, encouragement, and part in my life and ministry. You are all precious to me! I appreciate you all!!
