Prayer Letter/Ministry Update

Dear Friends and Prayer Partners,

Thank you again for your continued prayers and support. While on home assignment, I have enjoyed many opportunities to share how God has been working in Mexico City, Mexico, as I live to share the hope a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ brings to our lives. Having lived and served in Mexico City for 10 years, I am beginning to see the fruit of deepening relationships for greater impact in training pastors and leaders who are called to serve in Mexico and throughout the world. Pray for greater opportunities to mentor and encourage leaders as they serve.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

1. Pray for God to continue to call and equip men and women to serve Him in Mexico City. Pray specifically for Gilberto and Laura, church planters in Mexico City. Pray for others who are responding to God's call on their lives but wondering HOW to follow that calling: Alejandro, Rebecca and Chuey, Paulina.

2. Pray for our pastors and leaders to continue to boldly pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out more workers into the harvest. We have seen a movement of prayer and missions blowing across Mexico as mission and national leaders have partnered in the College of Prayer and the Kairos courses. Pray for continued revival in our hearts as we serve together. Praise God for a joint vision trip to two areas of Mexico where there is a need for a team to begin outreach into the communities.

3. Pray for more opportunities for partnering with like minded groups in providing theological training for those who desire to serve God in their communities and world. Pray for openness to consider alternative delivery sytems for training, such as online courses. Pray for our national leaders to see the need for training and for a healthy partnership relationship as together we consider how to best meet this need.

4. Pray with us as we dream and plan for continued opportunities to train our women leaders for more effective ministry. Pray specifically for a training course for women leaders serving with MOPS which will be held during the month of April in Mexico City. Gaileen, a former colleague from Venezuela, will be facilitating this course. Pray for Veronica, Blanca, Elisa, Adilia, and others who are interested in taking the course.

5. Thank the Lord for the beginning of an International Bilingual School which serves our international workers and their families, as well as serves as a means of outreach to families in Mexico City. Please pray for financial provision as they struggle to meet financial obligations. Pray for God to provide qualified teachers and personnel for the Fall of 2019, as well.

Thank YOU for giving to the Great Commission Fund and for praying!
