Can't believe it greetings from Mexico...
I can't believe January is GONE already! Hang on to your hat - looks like another whirlwind-fast year ahead!
"My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me." Ps 31:15 "Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us." Ps 62.8
Troubled times continue in Mexico - but we are at peace. We have God, and He gave us Ps 91.
I reminded the folks here how God moved so powerfully in El Salvador during the decade of Sandinista oppression. Similar growth of the church occurred in Guatemala during their war years.
We believe it's - more than ever - harvest time in Mexico.
We celebrated a beautiful wedding of two of our young folks last night. A number of visitors prayed for salvation at the end of the message.
Nahum is the son of Joel and Marina Rangel. Joel laid down his life on the mission field in Africa.
Raiza is the daughter of Pastor Alfonso Herández and his wife Susana. Nahum is already servng on Angulo's pastoral team. (Angulo is our central church in Guadalajara.)
Please pray for the quarterly pastors' meeting we celebrate tomorrow in El Salto, Jalisco. Our pastors from 5 states will gather to fellowship - around the table of the Word and tables of tasty Mexican cooking. I will be teaching (along with 2 other pastors) and Linda will teach the ladies.
We had 3 pray for salvation at Angulo Sunday - and 2 more at Tepic. 4 Baptized in water and a bunch received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Linda's gall bladder surgery was postponed a week - her preliminary tests were all good. Her heart is fine! Praise God.
At our morning devotional tme together Linda and I mention you regularly...and thank God for your prayers, support and friendship. What a blessing you have been to us and th ministry here. We love you and thank God for you.
Have a heavenly time of worship and fellowship in Father's House tomorrow.
Roger & Linda
