Praising God in Mexico

Hi everyone!
God is so very good and I am praising Him for his faithfulness.. Please pray that there would be even more opportunities to share the gospel with people. As a result of this whole swine flu thing that you are probably hearing about, there is a lot of fear in people, but the good thing is that people might actually be more open to listen. Pray that all of us who know Christ here as our Savior would be making the most of every opportunity! How wonderful it is that we have a sovereign God that we can trust in regardless of the circumstances around us! I was so clearly reminded of Psalm 46 this morning. I wanted to put the whole thing here, but decided to put verses 10 and 11. Be sure to check out the rest if you don´t know it already!!!!!

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress


Thank you for your love and prayers!

busy busy

Hi Everyone!
Thank you so much for praying for me! I haven´t posted for awhile so i thought I would just write a quick note for now and try to get something a little more substantial up in a few days.
I am continuing to do well...it is getting hot here roughly 95 degrees each day, but it is starting to cool off more at night and soon the rainy season will start.
I am continuing to work with the women at the casa hogar. A few of them are trying to complete their studies so I find myself occasionally tutoring and trying to teach math to one ( a challenge at times----discovering that I am having to learn some of those concepts that I didn´t quite understand the first time), and helping another with reading/literature. Ana is still working on learning to read----I can see little by little that she is progressing which is encouraging.
As I plan devotionals for the women, I find that the Lord uses them greatly in my life to convict and challenge me, but am not sure how much the women are grasping. Pray that the Lord would continue to draw each one of them closer to Him, and that they would understand how deeply precious and loved they are by Him.
As prayer secretary, I am planninng a half day of prayer for our team in June for our team after my border trip. Pray that the Lord would give me wisdom as I plan a schedule for the day. There is so much to be praying for!
Stay strong in the Lord and keep being faithful. Blessings and love to you all!

Another Video

Warm Spring greetings to all!

I am going to attempt to post a small video clip each month, as I have time, so that you are able to enjoy it. Here is my second video--I used the word "blessing" three times in 20 seconds--it was all impromptu-- but it must have been because it is an honor to be serving the Lord and to have all of you behind me in prayer. Thank you!

Keep serving Jesus and loving Him. May we all be found faithful and grow closer to Him in the days ahead.
