Update May 1

Greetings and blessing from central Mexico.

Well, we have already spent April – and the third part of another year! I am cncerned that we know why the Lord has us here, and that we are busily focused on that.

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” (KJV)
“Teach us to use wisely all the time we have.” (CEV)

In 1967 we planted our first congregation here in Mexico – in the state of Nuevo León (where so much of the drug related violence is going on now.) Chano Flores and his wife, Isidra have been the faithful leaders of the work there over the last 44 years. The congregation has grown and they have planted a daughter church in a nearby village.

Chano travels all over that area, ministering to different pastors and their congregations. It is a very risky business, but he is diligent in carrying out his calling. Would you please pray for his safety as he comes and goes?

Linda is better in many ways – but still cannot seem to gain weight and still has very limited energy level. Thank you for your prayers for her, as well.

The husband of one of the ladies taking the Titus 2 course in Tepic came to the Lord last Sunday.

On Wednesday Rosalba is undergoing a rather extensive abdominal surgery. She is the wife of our youth pastor, Octavio Nava. Your prayers are needed and appreciated.

I am attaching a short article concerning our call and work in Mexico. I send it as a thankful testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness and goodness.

Have a wonderful day in Father’s House on Sunday.

And, again – thanks for your prayers for all of us here.

In Him,

Roger & Linda
