Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Dear Partners in the Ministry,
This week is very special! August 3 – 7 is ALLIANCE THANK-YOU WEEK! We want to pause to express what is in our hearts every day – our great gratitude to the Lord for you all, the amazing Alliance family who so faithfully pray and give so that we can have the great joy and privilege of taking the life changing message of Jesus’ love to the people of the Dominican Republic for over 31 years and now to the people of Guadalajara, Mexico

We know that 2020 has been a very challenging year all around the world. You all have made sacrifices in so many areas. Thank you so much for your sacrificial giving during this past year and especially during the COVID19 pandemic. We are so very grateful! You have a vital role in taking ALL OF JESUS TO ALL THE WORLD.

Even in these very challenging times, God is doing great things here in Mexico and around the world. Here are a few glimpses of how God is using your generosity in Guadalajara in these days.

- Even amid the uncertainty of travel during the pandemic, God opened the door so that we could travel to Guadalajara on July 22. We are so blessed to be here now. We are quickly getting settled in and enjoying getting to know the city and the people.

-Sunday we were received and welcomed with much love and enthusiasm as part of the pastoral team of the “Aliento de Vida” (Breath of Life) Church. This is all part of the SouthPointe Project, the church planting movement of which we are now a part. This is all possible because of your faithful prayers and giving.

-The Aliento de Vida Church has also been very involved in reaching out to their community during the pandemic. Your giving to the Alliance has helped them over the last few months to give bags of food, supplies and a Bible to over 300 families who have been affected by the pandemic. We even had the joy of helping assemble 100 more bags to help hurting families the first week we were here. You can read a testimony written by our teammates Bob and Cheryl Fugate of how God is at work through your prayers and giving at this Link.

- Since we arrived, we have even had two seemingly random, but we believe God ordained, opportunities to talk to people in some stores about Jesus and His love and care in these challenging times. These came about in amazing ways because of the pandemic. In both instances, we were able to have some interesting conversations trying to answer questions and pointing people to Jesus. Because of your prayers and giving we were able to be here in Guadalajara at the right moment to share with these individuals.

These are just a few glimpses of what God is doing here in Guadalajara. We know that He has great plans. Our hearts are filled with gratitude. So, in this “ALLIANCE THANK-YOU WEEK,” we want to say THANK YOU / MUCHAS GRACIAS. Thank you so very much for ministering right alongside of us through your faithful giving and prayers. May God richly bless you!

Prayer Requests - Zac and Julie Stutler

Praise the Lord for allowing us to arrive in Guadalajara on July 22, 2020.
 …for us as we continue to settle in here in Guadalajara and get to know the culture, people and area. Pray also that we will quickly make friendships and be a blessing to those around us and have many opportunities to share Jesus love with the people around us. Pray that we can quickly integrate into the South Point Project pastoral team where we will be involved in church planting, leadership training and pastoral ministries.
 for our Visa
o We came to Mexico on a tourist visa as we are still waiting for government offices to be open in Mexico City so some documents can be deposited there and then we need an appointment with the Mexican Consulate in Indianapolis. Once all that happens, we will need to make a quick visit to Indianapolis to finish the process. Please pray that God will open all the right doors at the right time and that we will get the Visa soon.
 …for the Alliance team in Guadalajara. Pray that God would give all of us many good opportunities to minister to many people especial during this time of the COVID19 crisis. Pray that the Lord will bring many people into His kingdom.
 … for the Breath of Life Church in Guadalajara (that is the church we will be working with). They bought a property two years ago and are meeting in a temporary facility on the property. They have been waiting for almost two years for the building permits. Pray that the Lord will move in the hearts of the agency that grants those permits and allow them to begin building.
 …for God’s clear leading as to where to live and start a new campus of the Breath of Life Church.
 that God would give us creative and effective ideas to be able to build relationships and reach more people.
 …for spiritual protection for the team and national believers.
 … that God would continue to raise up Mexican leaders in these churches.
 … for Alianza Punta Cana
o Pray for aXcess Workers, Miguel and Keren Rodriguez-Pena and their two children Isabel and Damian that God would continue to use them in great ways in the leadership of Alianza.
o Pray also for the new Dominican pastoral couple, Elvin and Jenny Rosario and their children Gabriel and Carla.
o Pray that Alianza will continue to grow and reach out in mighty ways to the families of Punta Cana during these challenging days of the COVID19 crisis.
 … for our families in the US. That God would bless and protect them and that we would be able to stay well connected.
