Spring 2010 Update
What a blessing to serve the Lord in different activities in this area. We want to share some of the wonderful and refreshing testimonies from last weekend.
We went to serve breakfast at Emiliano Zapata (aka Punta de Mita) with our Jr. High team lead by Abel and Daniela Hernandez. After setting up everything at a basketball court just a few kids and moms, showed up… Not that many and we wondered why?? Soon we realized that the government from the state of Nayarit was setting up a big free medical clinic, right next to us at the adjacent property. So we quickly decided to bring breakfasts for each doctor and other people helping there. After that we asked the head Doctor if it would be possible to take our breakfast program along with our kids program to their clinic. Well, they said yes.. Praise God! … also, many thanks to the Cronk family, Vicky, Mike and Vicky and others for their flexibility.. we moved everything to the mobile clinic sight. Many more people were given New Testaments and Bibles, while they were waiting for the doctors along with a free breakfast. Also, a lot more children received the Bible lesson and craft. There is now a possibility that this same team of people from the government will join us for our outreach clinic on May 21 22, when the Circle of Concern team will be here. Several people were asking where we meet in Emiliano Zapata, so pray that we can start a small group there soon.
From kilo x kilo program
During that same morning Freddy and another team were working at our “work for food” program cleaning the Bucerias beach… Freddy shared some wonderful tesitmonies: a drunk person, when he saw a group of people cleaning went up to Freddy and gave him a 100 pesos to help feed the people there.
A guy passing by with a delivery truck with bread, (he had met Freddy before and told him that he doesn’t like pastors or churches) stopped the truck and gave Freddy many loaves of bread to give to the crowd while they were cleaning the area……
Pancake Power! (youth group)
This next month our youth group will be going out on the streets of Bucerias to share with other youth about the love of God using their testimonies as living proof of God´s power. While we do that we’ll be serving them pancakes!
Last Friday they went to one of the most visited plazas were lots of kids and youth spend their evenings out. We were praying for divine appointments, someone hungry to hear the good news and we got one. Freddy and I saw this young lady Aymar and started talking to her and sharing about God´s love. She opened up and it was like a hurt and dry heart receiving God’s living water! She ended up receiving Christ!
Our youth group is really fired up to continue to spread what God has done in their lives and they are looking forward for next Friday for more divine appointments to come!!
“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify you Father in heaven”
Keep us in your prayers, while we continue doing this labor of love.
Many blessings to all of you,
