Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

April 5, 2019

Dear praying friends,

Thank you so much for your prayers over the past months! When the azaelas and dogwoods begin to bloom, it is obviously Springtime in Atlanta. What a glorious reminder of the new life we have in Christ! It is also a reminder for us that nine months have raced past since we returned to the States and began our current Home Assignment. Let us bring you to up-to-date on our lives and ministry.

Thus far in 2019 we have had the privilege of ministering in 13 different churches. We still have a few more missions weekends scheduled for the next few months. It has been a joy to report on how God is at work in Spain.

The Lord has also been at work in our lives and we are very grateful.

• Mary continues to improve and is doing well. The cardiologist is pleased with her progress and so are we!
• Raymond is also resting better and feeling well.
• We are now homeowners! After several months of looking, in March we closed on a house here in the Atlanta area and plan to move in next week. We definitely saw the hand of the Lord in a multitude of details. And so many friends have pitched in to help us. What a blessing!

Updated Prayer Requests

• For our remaining ministry weekends over the next few months, that God will continue to use us to be of encouragement and blessing as we share about the work in Spain.
• For the Lord’s clear direction regarding what He has in mind for us once we officially conclude our service with C&MA International Ministries on July 1.
• For generous giving to the Great Commission Fund of the Alliance over these next few months especially.

ALLIANCE FAMILY NEWS

COUNCIL 2019
The Alliance family is gathering in Orlando, Florida, on May 28–June 2. You are invited to join the Alliance family as we gather in Orlando, Florida, to celebrate what God is doing in our midst and seek His heart as we move Beyond.

GREAT COMMISSION DAY!
Because of the strong response to the 2018 Year-end Offering, the C&MA Board of Directors was able to approve 50 of the 60 new workers to be sent in 2019. However, we still face significant financial challenges as we move forward. A strong response to the 2019 Great Commission Day Offering, themed ‘We Are Sending,’ will ensure that all 60 will be sent to live and minister overseas.

Yours for the spiritual greening of Spain,
Raymond and Mary

Dear praying friends,

Thank you so much for your prayers over the past two months! We are very pleased to report that Mary is doing MUCH better. A recent visit to the cardiologist indicated that her heart muscle is now stronger and heart function is significantly improved. She also feels much better. Needless to say, this is a wonderful Christmas present and we are so grateful to the Lord. Thank you again for your prayers and words of encouragement.

Over the past couple of months, we also were able to visit eight churches to share updates on what God is doing in Spain. Mary was able to accompany Raymond on all these trips, for which we are also grateful. We will continue ministering on weekends in the new year after the holiday season concludes.

Updated Prayer Requests

• For Mary’s continued healing and the recovery of her strength and stamina.
• For Raymond’s health also, as he recently was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. He hopes to begin treatment in just a few days now, and is very much looking forward to better sleep and improved rest.
• For the Lord’s clear direction about where to live and what He has in mind for us once we officially conclude our service with C&MA International Ministries next summer and transition toward retirement.
• For generous giving to the Great Commission Fund of the Alliance over these next few months especially.

Special Request

A record 60 Alliance workers are trained and ready to be sent overseas. Will you give generously to the 2018 Year-End Offering to send these new workers to the field?

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support, especially over the past few months! We have felt them and are very grateful!

Yours for a blessed Christmas, and the spiritual greening of Spain,
Raymond and Mary
