John and Cathy Howard

Prayer Letter/ April 2017


April 8, 2017

Dear Friends,
It is a great privilege for us to be able to minister in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico. We want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support to the Great Commission fund that allows us to be in Mexico. Cathy and I returned to Guadalajara this past July to begin a three term serving at the Torre Fuerte Alliance Church. Currently there are 4 C&MA churches in the city. Our church was the third church established and has been ministering for about 10 years in the community here. Our ministry for this coming term is to work in the Torre Fuerte Church with the goal of establishing local national pastoral leadership. Our church has made three attempts at establishing a national pastor in the church but each time God has revealed that we were to continue to look and wait for His confirmation. Currently, one of our elders, Jose Lopez is giving direction to the church as the head elder. He will hold this position for the next six months, until the end of June. At that time, an evaluation of his ministry will be done in order to see whether he should continue in that role. Our goal at this point is to continue to pray and ask God to confirm the person He has chosen to be the pastor of the church. We would especially appreciate your prayers in this area of the church during the next several months as God makes His will known. In addition to that, we would also ask you to pray as the church has gone through several difficult testing times over the past two months. Satan has made more than one attempt to divide our church, but God has been faithful as He always is during difficult times. I want to thank you once again for praying and walking with us as we work here in Guadalajara. It is a great privilege to serve the Lord and be in the center of His will. May God bless you as you continue to minister in where God has strategically placed you.

Prayer requests:
1) Confirmation of Jose Lopez and his ministry at the church.
2) Discipleship ministry to the pastors and churches in Chiapas and Oaxaca states
3) For safety as we minister
4) For God's continued direction so that we can serve with much fruit.
