Taking hold of the Scriptures for the first time...

Great story from our most recent week in Northern Mexico

Over the last few months we have been working diligently with the members of our church plant in Village CO in Northern Mexico teaching them how to read, understand and interpret the Bible on their own. It has been beautiful to see their response. As we have met with them in the evenings throughout the week we have seen more and more people from the village coming eager to learn. As they sit with their Bibles open and pens in hand our team cannot help but praise God for this answered prayer - we have been praying since August that the Lord would create a hunger for His Word among the people of this church.

About two weeks ago my heart overflowed with joy as two of the women from the church explained that they had been meeting together everyday for the last month studying the book of James and using the principles we had taught them. They went through their notes in front of the others pointing out the main themes they were seeing in the letter, namely trials and temptations. They explained with smiles on their faces that they had never been able to read and understand the Bible like this before and now they have a new found desire to do so. Interest in the Word seems to be growing among the church so please pray that this example would spread like wildfire through the others.

TRANSITIONS: Our Upcoming Craziness

We are coming to the completion of our time on staff and training at To Every Tribe. Thus, we are gearing up for our first term (3-4 years, Lord willing) on the field full-time. The next several months will be extremely busy as we temporarily move to KC, visit friends and family in IL, work on further building our team of prayer/financial partners to meet our increased needs, and make all the necessary preparations for moving our family of six abroad. We will need MUCH PRAYER. We will be living in KC from the end of June - mid-December. We will then move to Costa Rica to begin our first term with language school. After we complete language school we are aiming at moving directly to Cusco, Peru which will serve as home base for our ministry of training and working with Peruvian pastors and missionaries to reach the unreached in Peru.

Prayer Requests

  • Praise - We were officially accepted to the Spanish Language Institute to begin next January 
  • Praise - The church plant in Northern Mexico continues to grow in depth and number
  • Praise - We praise God that we have had the privilege of playing a role in teaching, mentoring and assisting in training other missionaries over the last 20 months. It is bittersweet to see this time come to an end next month.
  • Please pray for our family as we go through several major transitions in the next 8 months as we prepare for our first term abroad
