Update February 26

Thankful greetings from Mexico,

“Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55.22

Linda and I are thankful! We’re thankful for warmer, dryer weather the last three days. We’re thankful for promises like the one above. We’re thankful for people like YOU, who pray for us and encourage us in this ministry. And we’re thankful for so much more!

We’re thankful too, for the 12 new believers in the last two weeks. Tonight we have a large united youth meeting at the Angulo Center – I expect more new believers from that, too. (By the way, last week I mistakenly made reference to April. Should have been February.)

I’m also thankful for the new missions and outreaches in the work. Our daughter-in-law’s family lives in northern California. Church friends of theirs have family in a small village (Zapotlán) near Guadalajara. The father was very seriously ill – but they could not come and were concerned about his spiritual condition. One of our pastors went out to their village and visited the family. Several, including the father, received the Lord. Weekly visits and Bible studies have been productive.

Our pastor in the city of Leon, Guanajuato heard a missionary exclaim, “What a shame that there is not a single Christian church in San Julian.” So Pastor Juan took a group from the Leon Faith Center to check it out. No one wanted to rent to them for Christian services. Finally a man did rent them a small house – saying, ”This town needs what you all bring.” Some members of the Leon Center have friends and family in San Julian.

Another new mission church is ‘way across the city of Guadalajara in the Tatepozco area. Pastors Miguel and Victor are working on the lots there, clearing the land for a building. Several believers attend the three cell groups in the area. We will soon have another congregation planted there.

Thank you again for praying and for being a part of what God is helping us do here in Mexico.

Have a richly blessed time in His House tomorrow.

In Him,
Roger & Linda
