September Newsletter

September 2007

Dear Friend,

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16.11

Guadalajara Center activities
Re-Encounter retreat for the young people
As I write the young people are on a re-encounter retreat over the weekend. These retreats have been super productive in ministering deeply in the lives of the “encounterees” and in fanning the flames of zeal and commitment to the ministry of the church in the community.

Gearing up for coming activities
We are working with other churches and pastors in preparation for the coming “March for Jesus” here in Guadalajara, plus our own local church missions conference early December.

The Harvest continues
We are still rejoicing over souls that come to the Lord week by week. Each person is so special, and so precious to the Lord and us. Still, we feel sometimes that we are trying to reap this abundant harvest of souls with a sickle, when what we need is a giant combine! We did see over 80 people pray for salvation the first alf of 2007, however. Praise God.

Titus 2 Conference
Linda and her team are celbrating a Titus 2 conference on October 6. This will be a gathering of the many ladies who have taken the course over the last decade. The Lord has done some truly miraculous things in many marriages through this outreach.

Linda’s surgery was successful and her recuperation rapid and uncomplicated! For which we praise God and thank you for your prayers for her.

Linda’s house is just waiting for Linda to be back on her feet enough to start moving in! We should begin next week. It will take some time, but we are ready to begin the process! Praise God again!

We have been so blessed and encouraged by the aprticipation of so many of you in your prayers and in your gifts for this project. God bless you!

Two pictures of the local church’s Independence Day service are below. September 16 is Mexico’s “4th of July.”

Thank you again for your prayers and love. God bless you, “real good.”

In Him,

Roger and Linda
