This is certainly a season to give thanks. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of two of our donors. The one gift covered our deficit and the other gift was sent in honor their daughter “Charla” who graduated from Arizona State University, Summa Cum Laude and now has a position with Homeland Security. They met our need and gave glory to God.
CHARLA, CHUCK, KETTA VANDENBOS AND RUTH DIEHL
Thank you for praying for Chuck and me and our recent trip to Arizona. Ruth Diehlarranged for us to speak at a Saturday night gathering of friends and neighbors. Special guests came to the meeting from Prescott, AZ, John and June Griffin.
Our lives have been intertwined as our parents were friends and that relationship has remained unbroken. Sunday morning, I spoke at Arizona Hills Community Church, Anthem, AZ and was introduced by Ketta VandenBos, now attending Grand Canyon University.
Four of our teenage girls in Oaxaca turned 15 this year. They celebrated their birthday this past Sunday at a quinceañera party, which is quite a festive event in Mexico.

This weekend, there will be a big Christian youth event in Tlacolula that our teenagers from Oaxaca will be participating in. Please pray that God would move in the hearts of the youth, heal their wounds and inspire them with a hopeful vision of His plans for their futures.

FOUR MONTH OLD BOY
TWO MONTH OLD GIRL
In the past few weeks, the Baja mission has received two little babies. Both of these children came to us with deep health issues. The first infant is a four-month-old boywith breathing problems and malnutrition. The second infant is a two-month-old girlwith a long list of significant health problems. We know that our Jesus is the Great Physician and He can heal, so we covet your prayers for these two tiny children.
