Mini Conference Update

     Hi Everyone,

      Psalm 133:1 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!"

     As you know, I have now returned from a 3 day mini conference with all of the Mexico team.  We spent hours working on how to improve our team structure and I am happy to say that God showed up in a real way, bringing our whole team into a unified decision.  It was really amazing to see God work and to be a part of what He was doing in my life and others' lives at the the mini-conference.

    Today was Conchita's birthday--so I spent a few of the hours of the afternoon with her. It was good to have some time together, and to see God's goodness that He has given her another year here on earth.

    Do pray for me, that due to a few different factors, I am at a place where my job description with the team here will be changing considerably. This is, hopefully, a good thing but there may be a few challenges ahead. Pray that I will be able to learn new responsibilities quickly once I find out what they all are.

   Thank you for your prayers everyone--and I look forward to updating you again tomorrow.

Mini Conference Starts Tomorrow

Hi Everyone,

For those of you hat are eagerly waiting a prayer letter update, I should be getting that out in October (hopefully.)

Tomorrow evening our team mini-conference begins. Please pray for us as a team as we have many important decisions to make and things to discuss. Pray that God would give us His wisdom and show us His will regarding many different matters. I will return from our mini-conference on Saturday evening September 29th. There will be no internet access these next few days for me,. Thank you for your prayers.

Pray also as I am on the conference committee for our week long annual conference coming up  in February 2013. I hope to meet with the other couple on the committee during a lunch break over  these next three days to begin planning because as of yet we have not started. Pray that God would lead us and give us concrete creative ideas, along with a theme for annual conference that will be a blessing and enrichment to our team.

This past week I've been helping my supervisors by typing up schedules, menu, etc for the mini conference, and have spent time with a co-worker that is being led in a different direction and leaving our field at least for now.

Looking forward to updating you during the weekend or early next week.

Hi Everyone,

Today is Independence Day here. I will be heading to church for our typical celebration in a little while. I've been catching up on some things that were needed this afternoon (e-mails, computer stuff etc)

Tomorrow I begin helping with Sunday school at church, so I spent part of the morning preparing for that as well.

It was a busy week. I had meetings Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Then on Thursday and Friday I spent both days helping the short term workers with the buses (and learning myself also as the buses were in areas unfamiliar to me on the other side of town.)

Have a blessed weekend and day in the Lord tomorrow. Blessings to you all.

Hi Everyone,

The two short term workers that have come to serve with is arrived safely last night. Things have changed in my supervision role for Janina. I will still be meeting with her to pray with her and see how things are going, but partly because of changes in her locations for ministry, I am no longer in charge of the housing or her ministry schedule. I will most likely  these responsibilities again, after about two months. I've learned a lot about being flexible the past two weeks through all of the changes. Thank you for  praying for our short term workers amd for their time with us.

I am going to begin helping with teaching Sunday school to the 7-12 year old's at church once or twice a month. This will start on the 16th of September. Thank you for praying for me and that I would be able to communicate things clearly in Spanish and such. Thankfully this is for children so it should be easier in the communication sense of things. I am excited because our church secretary and children's ministries coordinator (the same person) is wanting to give me some training and things also so that will be good.

I got to share my testimony with her yesterday as we were discussing things in her office as well-so that was a neat time together.

September 15th is the Independence day celebration here so I will most likely be going to my church for their fellowship night that they plan for that evening, like we had last year.

Thanks for your prayers and for taking the time to read my updates. :) May His blessings be evident to all of you in your lives today!
