Dear Pastors and Friends,
I write to you this month after talking to our national pastors in Mexico. They continue to work diligently for the Lord so that souls can be saved. Below are notes from two of our pastors currently serving. Please understand that these letters came through the Mixteco language to Spanish and then to English. The grammar may not be completely correct but I am sure you can still understand the hearts of these servants of Christ.
Josias Mosso “Recently we visited in the new village of the name of Scuastuti. In that new village we won a family to the Lord and we continue to visit with them. We continue to visit in the villages where we have established works Tenexcaocingo, Tejocote, Tepeyac, and Plan de San Migel and as a result we have 15 new visitors attending. On one Sunday in January, the church where I was preaching filled up and there was standing room only as people lined the walls around the church.“
Juan Guzman “In the church of Zilacayotitlan, thirty new converts are attending the discipleship class and two more have accepted Christ as their Savior. In December we conducted a camp for the young people and we praise the Lord for the 130 young people who attended. In Huehuetepec the church is growing and the members want to add on to the building. Please pray that God will provide for this need. The works in Juanacatlan, Francisco Madero and Santa Cruz continue to do well and the Lord is blessing.“
These pastors work diligently at their mission, as you can see. Each one pastors four or five village congregations. This keeps them busy and away from their own families much of the time. They continue in this ministry because, just as my husband did, they see the time on earth growing to a close. Surely the time of Christ is near. These pastors and I all desire that our people will hear the gospel of Christ and accept them as their Lord and Savior. Thank you for continuing to provide financially so they can do this.
The boys and I continue to do well, and are all doing very well in school. We have learned many new customs about holidays and seasons while being here through the Christmas season. I have continued to work with immigration to settle my papers so that I could travel freely between the U.S. and Mexico. This is what Lyle had begun when he passed away and was his desire for our family. Please pray with me that this task would be completed quickly. Although I am in the United States, I also continue to talk with our pastors and other workers on a weekly basis and send financial support. Thank you for continuing your support of our ministry in Mexico. It means so much that you are standing beside us in this work.
May the Lord bless you,
