For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son,
that whoever believes in Him might not perish
but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Pastor Rey told me today that there is a need in both San Carlos and Navojoa for orphanages. In Navojoa, we already have a facility that would work with a little fixing up.

Please pray that God would lead a couple (or couples) to us that would like to run such a facility!

The possibility has arisen to begin a radio ministry in the San Carlos area. Pray for wisdom in this area as well. Pastor Isaias is currently preaching on a radio station in Navojoa and Pastor Guadalupe is trying to get a time on the station as well. But that station needs a bigger antenna to reach further into Sonora. Perhaps you know about these things and can help in this area. Contact us (link at right) and let us know. But all of you, please, pray!

On Christmas Day approximately 50 people will be taking food baskets into the Navojoa area. Pray that they will not only meet physical needs but touch people's lives in such a way that they will want to pursue a relationship with Christ.

Pray specifically for:
Pastor Guadalupe's congregation in Navojoa and the churches he oversees.
Pastor Manuel's congregations in San Pedro, Rodeo, Burabampo and Jitonhueca
Pastor Juan's congregation in Chucarit
Pastor Manuel's weekly radio broadcast and evangelistic services

Sharon hands out gifts at Northern Cochise Community Hospital's Nursing Home
Bea gives a gift to our friend Mary
Casa de Esperanza, in Cochise, Arizona
Henry from Casa de Esperanza presents us with a Christmas gift
Yesterday was great! We handed out the Christmas ornaments that Sharon and Bea made to all the residents at both nursing homes. They made extra so there was enough to give one to every patient on the hospital side as well.

We let the residents pick their favorite Christmas carols to sing along with and read the Christmas story from Luke. God really blesses us through this ministry.

We have been working on our next recording...all songs about heaven. That's a blessing too, because your mind is ever on the Lord and what He's preparing for us. Are you prepared for Him?
