Update, July 15

Dear Friend,

The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Ps 68:11,19

Greetings in the Almighty and Exalted Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. What a joy to serve Him and see His working in the lives of the people as we minister His Word!

We just finished celebrating the Angulo Center of Faith, Hope and Love’s 33rd anniversary. We had services Thursday through Sunday, and 18 new people came to know the Lord in those services. It was a good campaign.

Linda and I started this church in July, 1974. We held a campaign in a rented auditorium for 6 days in January, 1974. We planned the campaign in response to our daily 15 minute radio program. People got saved from all over, many healed and many filled with the Holy Spirit. After the campaign Linda and I found the old theater building (where we later bought and now meet) and started coming 150 miles every Saturday from Leon, Guanajuato for all day meetings. We moved to Guadalajara the last of June of that year.

We praise the Lord for the hundreds of souls that have come to Jesus across the years, and the mission churches birthed out of the downtown Angulo Center. We now have 8 Centers in Guadalajara, most of which started out of Angulo.

In my weekly email update (which I would love to send you) I shared about Gemis Gonzalez. His wife, Candelaria had just recently come to the Lord (2 months ago, now) and shortly afterward became very ill. Two week ago she died and Gemis was beside himself with grief. I asked for prayer for his salvation. You prayed, and in this anniversary campaign he gave his heart to Jesus. Praise the Lord!

Our national pastors’ convention will be held in Morelos state July 17-20. Our annual Youth Camp is August 2-5. Each year the Lord has manifested His Presence, Power and Purpose to the lives of scores of our young people. Mexico’s population is 100 million. 50% of them are 15 years old and under. 65% of them are not yet 30 years old! Please help us pray for the young people of Meixo!

Your prayers and financial support are what helps us be here, and helps make possible the fruit that we do see. You are definitely a vital part of the ministry here. And we do appreciate it very much!

God bless you, more and more!
Roger and Linda
