Update August 21

Greetings in the Wonderful Name of Jesus.

"Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name..." Php 2:9

Our youth pastor, Octavio Nava and his assistant, Beto Nolasco were making a follow up visit this week. A little old lady from Guanajuato state has been listening to our Agua Viva program for a long time. She recently moved to Guadalajara and visited the Angulo Center.

But Octavio and Beto couldn’t locate her house. Nevertheless, in their search they came upon eight young guys hanging out by some boulders in a field. Octavio and Beto began to talk with them, and then to share the Gospel. Before they were through, all eight of them had accepted the Lord. Their photo is attached to this update.

Then a lady called the church this week from the town of Tototlán (about an hour from Guadalajara.) She has been listening t the Agua Viva program for three years. She asked for someone from the Angulo Center to visit her husband in the Civil Hospital nearby. Octavio went.

He found her husband with a terribly gangrenous foot, and the doctors were planning on amputating it the next day. Octavio talked to him about the Lord. He wasn’t ready to receive the Lord yet – he was a Catholic man. Octavio read and explained Mark 16 to him, and then prayed for him.

Three days later the man called Octavio to come see him. The next day after their prayer, the doctors noticed the foot was not as bad. Maybe they would only need to amputate part of the foot. By the third day the foot was healed; no amputation was necessary. And the man was ready to receive the Lord! Praise God.

Thank you for being a praying partner with us in the ministry here. Every testimony we share – you are a part of the answer because you prayed.

Linda is a little bit better today. That, too, is because so many are praying. Joy Ost was here helping last week. Then our grand daughter Heather – who returned home to Dallas today - was here to help. My sister from Memphis arrives Monday to help for a while. We are so blessed, and so grateful for all who stand with us in the work and the trials.

God bless you richly as you worship Him with the saints in His House tomorrow.

In Him,
Roger & Linda
